Default Painting a wood floor in laundry room

I am going to be painting the floor of a laundry room. It is previously painted plywood and looks like crap. I am planning on scraping and lightly sanding the floor before applying a porch and floor paint from Sherwin Williams.

My question is: should the seams between the plywood panels be caulked with regular caulk or is there something in particular I should use to seal the cracks in the floor.

Thanks,
Eric

I would not use regular caulk for sure. When it starts to crack it will look bad. There is big stretch but you may want to look into some other stuff. Not sure what to recommend. If it was concrete they have patches and caulk like products for cracks but I guess you would be better off asking your rep unless someone else chimes in with their experience.



Welcome to the forum.

You could try "Rock Hard Water Putty". It dries as hard as wood and seems to hold up, as long as there isn't too much floor movement.

Rock hard will work but is pretty hard to sand.I would use Elmer's wood filler.Dries fast and sands easy.

Hi everyone! Nice to meet you!

In painting plywoods, it’s advisable to scrub and get rid of dirt and residue with sponge and cleaning solution first before painting them. Since even the small bits can result to noticeable flaws in the paint job.

Well since this is wood you need to use caution when using any water based cleaner, and make sure there is minimal humidity/moisture in the environment before you paint, or you will have peeling issues w it being a floor.

Feel free to call us for a free consultation! I can come take a look if you still need help w this project. We are in Madison!
