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.
