Our new house will have wooden floor boards...
Should we rip up the carpet and pay to sand and polish back the wooden floor or just floating floor over the top?
This will be our first home but an investment property to rent out (so we don't want to spend a fortune) we will put carpet in bedrooms.
I am trying to think of heat & cooling in winter and summer etc that's why I thought floating but DF disagrees LOL!

Wooden floors IMO tiles are a pita floating floorboards are another good choice.

Wooden floors, floating timber floors swell & buckle easily if exposed to excessive moisture, possibly not a great choice for renters.

Wooden floor boards, if they're in good condition then sanding and polishing isn't too expensive either.

We had a quote for sanding and polishing at an open inspection for a house we didn't buy about 18 months ago and it was $4100. We are going to do it in our house next year. Looks great and mats will make it a bit warmer

That was whole house tho, so should be a lot less if carpeting bedrooms
