Can an engineered wood floor be refinished?

This depends on the installation method of the original floor. If the floor was glued or nailed down it can be re-sanded. However, depending on the quality of the floor, there may or may not be enough of a wear layer of hardwood to sand down and refinish. The higher quality engineered wood will have about 1/8’’ of wear layer. This layer can be sanded and refinished one or two times before the entire floor would need to be replaced. If there are heat registers in the floor, remove the vent cover to get a closer look at the side of the wood to determine the remaining thickness of the finish layer. For best results, hire a professional to sand and refinish the floors.
