Hello,

Yep, the subject line said it all! Such a fool. Was dry fitting it then went away and came back and totally forgotten about removing these two planks (engineered) in question circled in red.

Is there any way to fix this without removing it? It's pretty tight. Should I:

1. find a thin metal plate, dip in glue and insert it underneath?

2. finish off the remaining floor, and do glue injection repair (wood is 28" and 75" x 7.5")?

Or any other suggestions?

Much appreciate with any feedback!!

Kalvin

If removing and replacing the planks is not preferred you can use a pryer to lift the edge and slide a piece of Kraft paper that has glue on both sides under as far as you need to, then press down gently as the paper is slid back out. You ought to be able to get lots of glue under the board. Kraft paper is pretty stiff. Work from one end to the other before the glue starts to stick.

Thanks Pete! That's a good idea...I'll try Kraft paper.

Its not the end of the world as long as that concrete subfloor is flat ;)

You can always drill a 1/8th hole and inject glue later too if there's a bounce in that area afterword. They make a kit for that kind of repair and most flooring suppliers should have it or be able to order it for you.
