The floor around my fireplace hearth seems to have sunk!
There is now a "lip" around where the base for the hearth is, under the vinyl flooring., and the vinyl is cracked. If we put down new vinyl how do we fix this lip so the same thing doesn't happen again? The height differential is about 1/3 inch so it is quite significant. I thought hard surface flooring might help, but then there would be a gap under there just waiting to let the flooring to break.
