    So you will need to sand them down then but only to the point we’re there is no more peeling going on then you will re varnish them the varnish will cover all so you will not see we’re you sanded unless the Olof was a diffrent stain in that cS3 you would need to stain first then varnish

    Do you have hardwood or do you have laminate? Hardwood floors are different than laminate. Hardwood is wood and laminate is not--it just looks like wood.

    Hi Karen. I agree with above comment. Try to contact the manufacturer. I'm sorry that your floor is peeling but I want the final product to be towards your advantage. Good luck Karen. Stay well.

    Is it a laminate? In other words is real wood or a wood look a like? If it is under warranty, I would contact them first so you don't void your warranty. Good luck and stay safe!

    If it's laminate you will have to replace the boards. There is no way to repair the peeling.

    You cannot repair peeling laminate, you'll have to replace those boards. They are just plastic over partial board. If cannot, I recommend you get a new floor that's a little better quality and value. Check out the solid vinyl wood look floors. They are great.

  • It depends on what you mean by laminate flooring - if it's vinyl laminate with a wood look then no. If it's an engineered hardwood then you MIGHT be able to sand them down the tiniest bit before you run out of wood.

    Sounds like the boards need to be replaced.

    Laminate flooring simulates wood (or sometimes stone) with a photographic applique layer under a clear protective layer. The inner core layer is usually composed of melamine resin and fiber board materials. Therefore cannot be fixed. I would go to floor and decor and see if you can match the flooring or Lumber Liquidators. it will be a job to replace depending on the area because you have to take out all the flooring up to that area to replace the boards.

    Do you have pictures? Can you use wood glue?
