Most people think that it is dangerous to re-sand or re-finish an Engineered Hardwood Floor, since only the top layer of Engineered Hardwood is actually real wood. The other layers are made of various synthetic fibers and materials. Therefore, sanding too deep within the Engineered floor can result in erasing all of the actual wood ! Why don't we just do the math. The top layer is 1/16'' of actual solid hardwood, and sanding should not remove more than 1/32''. Therefore you can sand down your engineered hardwood adleast two more times without removing all of the actual wood. Once again another benefit found within the new technology of Engineered Hardwood.

First off.....who knows how many sandings on an engineered wood you can get....
there are different thicknesses on engineered wood, some can only take 1 sanding.....
so try not to paint with such a wide brush....

Second....please feel free to reply to posts with good information...but if you want to write an article...please contact Nathan who owns this website and request it. Please do not start a thread to educate....

I would like to clarify just one word in FloorWizards' Post.

Replace the word "Educate" with "Promote" or "Self Promotion".

By becoming a regular and reputed member of this forum, by engaging in topics of interest to you, the self promotion will be automatic, rather than seeming like Spam.

Also, there is a Blog Feature on the sister site, www.DIYchatroom.com and an Article Feature on this forum, with the Administrators Permission, that could be used for public awareness campaigns.
