    Can I replace a small section of laminate flooring?

    Flooring Specialists

    Dog has damaged a section of wooden floorboard style laminate floor. Is it possible to just replace a small section without it looking obvious?

    "Yes you can replace a plank or two. It has to be done very carefully. You have to watch you do not break the grove along the join.
    Each plank up to and including the affected one has to be separated and placed back exactly"

    "Once any part is damaged, it really all needs relaying. Another option is if you have an extra board you could use. Only use them if moisture has not expanded or warped, and if not faded or blown, if not you should replace. Also check the underlay for any moisture issues if in doubt, replace all materials."

    "Not really is my answer. Depending on damage there are repair kits you can buy but presuming bad damage your best to number your boards so they go back correctly and pull them up to replace damage. My views are that it will be an eye saw trying to piece in and repair that way."
