Warped seams on laminate flooring!

Answered
Someone suggested a glue and seal for the warping seams in laminate floors and I can't find it. I know you place the glue then use waxed paper and then something heavy. But what kind of glue and where do they sell it.

    Have you tried asking at Lowes or Home Depot - or any other hardware type store in your area? The people who work there should know. If someone says they don't know, ask who else is in the store who would know. Here's an article about a different way to do it. Wishing you the best.

    Typically, if the seams on your laminate are peeling, etc...the floor has been damaged by either everyday use or by moisture. I guess you could try adding glue between the seams and then weighting it down with something heavy until it dries, but I would imagine that this repair would be very noticeable after it was done. Unfortunately, laminate flooring is very difficult to make repairs on. You might consider buying extra pieces in your floor color to switch out the damaged areas.

    Michele is right about laminate flooring being very difficult to "repair". Sadly this is often a characteristic of inexpensive construction and home decor materials. Don't waste your time and money buying various tools and possible solutions trying to fix the damage. The best solution is to remove the damanged pieces of laminate and replace with new.

    reallay any wood glue will work, Elmer’s or titebond glue. Titebond also makes a exterior glue that holds up to getting wet once it drys! Depending how big of a crack you have? There’s a few tricks you can do to work glue deep into your cracks! You can use a putt knife to push glue down into the cracks by making a bead of glue on your flooring by the crack and using your putty knife to work the glue into the crack. You can also try some cheap tiny paint brushes if the crack allows the brush to get in the crack? If you have a air supply that can blow air like even a vacuu. You can also blow the glue into a crack. You’ll have to experiment which solution works best for you? More glue in the crack the better your success will be! Also recommend keeping a damp rag near by and wiping off any excess wet glue before it dries! Once dry you may not have much luck removing it without damaging your floor! Another thing to try too, take a block of wood and put it over the crack where the crack is in the middle of your board roughly! Take a hammer and hit the block of wood hard while holding the board in place. This may even take the bow your seeing out of the flooring and stay down without glue too? With laminate flooring sometimes there slivers in the joints and if there not taken out before installlong this will also cause joints to bow up! But it’s possible with a block and hammer to smash the sliver and get the bow joint to stay down! Never hurts to try! Good luck
