Topic tags/keywords: painted floor resin poly plywood paint office floor

I have an office/shop outside in a building. I painted the floor years ago, and I have reapplied poly every 5 years or so. The last time I used Valspar and it was not good. Since it’s my office as well as a shop, I have an office chair located in the building. The wheels of the chair are causing overuse, which is displaying as cracks and encouraging the poly to crack and peel in certain areas.

I will NOT sand the whole floor down! I can spot sand and fill if I can.

Any ideas on the best product to make the fill / repair and then a top coat of something to seal?

I have resin on hand. I have a few resin spots that have held up really well under the chair, and I’m kind of leaning towards that. I’ve seen various fillers and glue fillers but they’re expensive, and i’m on a tight budget.

I have 2 images attached. If this was YOUR floor, in the only space you have to call your OWN, what would you do within some budgetary guidelines of not spending a lot of money???!

Throw down one of those plasticky office floor protector mat sheet things and call it a day.

Not trying to be a smart $ss.
