What type of wood flooring can be sanded?

Wood floors that can be sanded down include solid hardwood, engineered wood, and reclaimed wood flooring. Solid hardwood is the most common type of wood flooring and can be renovated multiple times, allowing the homeowner to restore their floor to its original look completely.

Engineered wood is composed of layers of wood and can also be refinished through sanding but may require a different refinishing process than solid hardwood. Reclaimed wood flooring is created from recycled wood from various sources, and depending on the product, some types of reclaimed wood floors may be sanded for refinishing.
