One my long time techs dropped his tool on a clients handmade hardwood floors. He let her know and now she wants us to repair it. Rightfully so. Any suggestions?
If it’s floating you can separate it in place and put in new plank. There’s grip tools on the market for that type of repair. Definitely looks like a laminate thoughWhy does that look like laminate? Maybe just the pic angle. But it looks like chipped laminate.
This one probably better to get hardwood guy to look at it. Too deep of a gouge. If you can find any balance peices and your good with saws. You can patch it. It looks like factory finish. So better to saw and transplant a balance piece if available.
Happens often that the whole floor has to be stripped and re stained. Even engineered wood allows for one sometimes two sandings for refinishing. But that floor looksStuff happens. It's just one damaged board, contact a good hardwood flooring company, preferably the one that did it originally. They'll pop the damaged board and put in a new one. Unless the whole floor needs to be refinished to make it match, which I don't think will be the case, it should be a pretty quick and easy fix that won't cost too much.
Im a cheater. I cut the lower groove off then fanigle it into place. Glue lubricates and seals the dealIf it’s floating you can separate it in place and put in new plank. There’s grip tools on the market for that type of repair. Definitely looks like a laminate though
I don't know, that second pic looks like the wood was gouged to me.I have worked with wood my entire life, water will solve your problem. If it's truly a real hardwood floor no material was actually removed, only compressed.
I was thinking it doesn't look like the floor is too worn, a little dirty but not real warn and maybe has a matte finish so it's possible the whole floor won't have to be completely sanded and redone. But then the pi is only showing a small part of the floor. Looking at a larger area maybe it'll need some refinishing work.Happens often that the whole floor has to be stripped and re stained.
