The guy who installed our Pergo floor 5 years ago undoubtedly didn't know
what he was doing. Our house is on a concrete slab with the pergo floor
installed on top of the soft underlayment pieces for pergo floors. My
problem is that the guy nailed the soft underlayment pieces to the concrete
slab and now the nails are coming up through the pergo as the underlayment
settles. Yep, he's long gone left the country because we can't find him so
here's my question.
How is the best way to repair the pergo boards where the nails are beginning
to come up through. Is there a way to replace the board itself without
making it look too obvious or should I try to cut out and replace just the
small 1 - 1.5 inch section above the nail. Thanks for your help and
guidance on this matter.
Planks or tiles are cut out, routered, and loose tongue used to replace.
Can't really write a book here on how it's done, but you can buy a Pergo
video and they give the basics. The video really doesn't show the tricks on
how to get the planks/tiles level with the existing floor.
If it were mine I would rip out the entire floor, you're in a losing
situation since proper prep work wasn't done.
My wife agrees with you.... replace the floor. I'm a glutton for pain so I
might, just might, try replacing one or two pieces and then make my
decision. The Pergo video sounds good. I'll try google.com and search for
it. Thanks for your input.
My dad always said that you can fix just about anything with a hammer, a
pair of pliars and a bail of haywire. I'm gonna try to fix one or two
boards and then decide. Thanks for your input.
