Refinishing a floating engineered hardwood floor may be possible depending on the thickness of the hardwood veneer layer. Sanding a hardwood floor typically removes 1/32 of an inch. Therefore, it is necessary to be aware of the thickness of the veneer layer before attempting the refinishing process to ensure sanding will not remove too much, or even all of, the hardwood veneer layer. It may be possible to sand an engineered floor once or twice as long as the layer is thick enough to withstand this process. In many cases, it may make more sense to remove and replace a damaged veneer layer rather than attempting to refinish it.
