Laminate Flooring Replacement

Laminate flooring repairs can be tricky. Last December it was Christmas Eve and I was working on a floor in an apartment, getting frustrated. It had a ‘bounce’ and I couldn’t get rid of it. I finally gave up, put it back together, and told the customer I couldn’t do it. Then a few weeks ago I was asked to replace a few boards that had water damage. I agreed to do it and budgeted a few more hours this time. It still took a lot longer than I thought!

When you think you just have to take out a few boards in the hall…like this:

…And then you realize that to access all of the boards, you have to take apart half of another hallway, like this:

…then you are happy when everything goes back together like it’s supposed to!
