Can Bruce engineered hardwood floors be refinished?
Accordingly, can engineered wood floors be refinished?
Yes, they can, at least once. Floors with a wear layer less than 2 millimeters thick can tolerate a light scuff-sanding with a buffer. Thicker top layers can be sanded just like solid wood, allowing you to erase deeper scratches and dents.
Similarly, how much does it cost to refinish engineered hardwood floors? Refinishing a 200 square foot room would cost $850-$1,260 to sand, stain, and finish with polyurethane. Replacing a hardwood floor of the same size would cost $2,000-$4,000 for solid or engineered wood.
Considering this, can you change the color of engineered wood floors?
The answer is usually YES! Many homeowners don't realize that you can change the color of hardwood flooring when you refinish your floors. Yes, it's true…you can go light or dark or red tones or anywhere in between. Most are pleasantly surprised it doesn't matter if you are going light to dark or vice versa.
