Nail Down Wood Floor Underlayment - One question I have already been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor refurbished and be sanded? A lot of folks know things to do having a fitted wooden flooring is a little more confusing, although that first floor boards or parquet floors might be sanded back to make a finished flooring that is lovely.
You have to discover what kind of flooring you might have, & most importantly it is wood. If your flooring is a wood effect laminate then I'm afraid the only alternative would be to replace it.
There are two kinds of fitted wooden flooring; solid and engineered wood flooring and the good thing is, both may be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day they were fitted. Engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate as it includes a similar construction. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 mm bonded to a base of MDF or ply board, because of its construction and that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove, it also remains quite flat.
Solid wood flooring will necessarily cost more to purchase and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it isn't as good a product as engineered as it is more prone to warping.
