Fixing a parquet floor after a small flood. Can't find anything
labeled "parquet glue" in the stores, staff gives me funny looks when
I mention parquet.
Any suggestions? I'm thinking construction adhesive (PL2000 sort of
thing) if all else fails.
Are you for real ?
If you don't know what kind of glue to use on a wood floor, then you
no business doing anything with/to it...
Have you let the floor dry out completely by means of using
strength dehumidifiers ? Until the wood gets back to its normal
of moisture content, you will not be able to glue it back together as
pieces of the puzzle won't fit in the spaces they need to go into...
Honestly depending on how bad the damage is it is better to replace
entire floor than try fussing around with gluing it back together, as
came apart, it is also likely water-stained as well...
Well, it is only my opinion, but I seem to be real enough. Issues
with the corn flakes this morning?
When I laid the floor 15 years ago, I used a product clearly labeled
"glue for parquet flooring". No such thing on the shelves now.
Figured somebody in this group does these things more often than once
every 15 years.
All the water damage has been cut out, new OSB laid, saved some tile
bundles from the original install (still in the original packaging) so
the finish matches, etc. Not sure why I'd want to replace 600 ft2 of
flooring vs a 30 ft2 patch.
HD sells an adhesive for gluing down wood floors. Unfortunately, minimum
size is 4 gallon can, costing $116. Look in the flooring section.
As to the staff's looks, perhaps they thought you were asking for an
adhesive made with a popular brand of margarine --
