Old coatings

Many years ago laminate flooring was put in our house then polyurethane was put on top. Over the years a walker used and destroyed parts of the floor coating and now large bibles are seen and cracking in to crumbs. Is there any way to fix it without putting new floors down

Nope. The floor needs to be replaced.

Laminate is not something which can be fixed. Not sure why the poly was applied; that's not typical nor likely helpful.

Most laminates aren't refinishable or supposed to have poly applied over them. Is this engineered hardwood versus traditional laminate?

btw - welcome to the forums!
