Q: A solid wood floor can be refinished more times than an engineered floor, right?

A: Most of the UV cured urethanes that are used today are so durable that it should take many years before you should have to refinish your wood floor. There is a misunderstood belief that 3/4" solid oak floors can be refinished over and over again. This is absolutely not true. A solid wood floor cannot be re-sanded once you get down to the tongue, which means only the top 1/8", or so, is sandable. The top ply on most engineered wood floors is 1/8" also, so both solid or engineered wood flooring can be re-sanded 2 to 3 times. The point here is when buying a wood floor do not buy it based on how many times you think it can be re-sanded.
