Wood Flooring Repairs Bristol - One question I've been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor be sanded and refurbished? Most folks understand that parquet floors or original floor boards might be sanded back to make a lovely finished flooring, but what things to do having a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing.
You must learn that it's wood, and most importantly which type of flooring you've got. In case your flooring is a wood effect laminate then I am afraid the only alternative is to replace it. Laminate flooring comes in varying degree of quality, but most of the time it's basically a wood effect print stuck to either an MDF or plywood plank using a lacquer on top, sanding it destroy the floor and would sand the paint off.
There are two kinds of fitted wooden flooring; the good news along with solid and engineered wood flooring is, both refurbished and may be sanded to look as new as the day they were fitted. Engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate as it's an identical building. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 mm bonded to a foundation of ply or MDF board, because that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove and of its building, it also stays very level.
Solid wood flooring certainly will inevitably cost a lot more to purchase and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it isn't as great engineered as it's more inclined to warping.
