Wood Floor Molding Profiles - One question I've been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old fitted wooden floor be sanded and refurbished? A lot of people have a wooden floor in their own house that has been down for 6-10 years which is looking tired, dull, has spots or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. Many folks realize that first floor boards or parquet floors might be sanded back to produce a finished floor that is lovely, with a fitted wooden floor is a little more confusing, but what to do.
You must find out it is wood, & most importantly what sort of floor you might have. If your floor 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 with a lacquer on top, sanding it destroy the floor and would only sand the paint off.
There are just two forms of wooden flooring that is fitted; engineered and solid wood flooring as well as the good thing is, both refurbished and may be sanded to look as new as the day they were fitted. Engineered wooden flooring will often be mistaken for laminate as it has an identical building. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 mm bonded to your foundation of MDF or ply board, because that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove and of its building, it also remains quite flat.
Solid wood flooring certainly will necessarily cost more to buy and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it's not as great a product as engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
