I have tongue and groove laminate that is glued. There was a bug on the
middle of the floor and my kids used aerosol instant carpet cleaner to kill
it. How do I repair it short of ripping it out to the middle of the floor?
I got directions from the manufacturer and they must be under the impression
that I have my own woodworking mill. After I get the damaged area out, I am
supposed to route the new pieces and the old pieces, wait for a full
moon...(JK) Seriously, after reading the 4 pages of VERY fine print, I think
it would be easier to just rip out the floor to the middle and start over.
I don't have a router and don't know how to use one. But I thought I would
ask to make sure there isn't an easier way.
Being glued, if you decide to rip out the floor to the area which is ruined.
You will still need a router, loose tongue and a few other tools. You'll
create a bigger mess.
You didn't mention brand name, but if it's Pergo you can go to their website
and look up installers. It will give you endorsed installers within 150
miles of your zip code, providing they signed up with Pergo for freelance
It does take some experience and knowledge to replace single planks or
tiles. I wouldn't advise it unless you helped someone a few times.
Expect to spend about $250 for a single plank or tile replace, with you
providing the tile or plank.
