What is involved in repairing a buckled hardwood floor?


Answer by  TalkQueen (38)

First you need to see if you can find some replacement boards that are either by the same manufacturer of the hardwood that is buckling. Pull up one of the boards and look on the back. Many times there is a stamp there that will get you that information.

My hubby and I once repaired a buckled hardwood floor in a restaurant/lounge in Denver... the kind where you throw peanuts on. It isn't THAT hard. Remove and replace with cut and groove pieces. Need putty filler for between wood slats, sand new boards flush with old ones and then sand.

bet ya ran out of room. Sanding is 3 part process: floor edger first, vibrator sander (80) next and last hand sand with 100 grit to smooth out.  add a comment

Gosh I couldn't tell you how in 50 words but you have to cut the bad wood pieces to match using a flat carpenter square and a utility knife. Most use a chisel and wooden mallet to cut out those out. You could use a circular saw if you wanted.

You have 50 words left!
