Situation 1

If the damaged board is close to a wall, the easiest way is to unlock it and replace it with a new board. You can therefore save a lot of labour and time.

1. Find the wall closest to the damaged plank.

2. Raise the wall molding.

3. Break the tongue and groove of one plank through the recess of the adjacent plank.

4. Replace the damaged plank and re-lock the plank you have just removed.

5. Reinstall the wall trim in its original position.

Scenario 2

If the damaged board is in the centre of the room, follow these instructions.

1. Ensure that the new plank is identical to the damaged plank.

Similar is not acceptable as it will not have the same locking system as the previous one and this will affect the reinstallation.

How do I cut the SPC flooring?

In the following section you will need to cut the SPC flooring using a hobby knife. Please read each step carefully to ensure that you get it right.

2. Use a circular saw to cut out the centre of the damaged plank.

Remove and discard, leaving a distance of approximately 25.4 mm from the surrounding material.

3. Use the same tool to cut backwards from each corner of the board to the inner edge.

Remove the rest of the board. Ensure that the area is kept clean and dry.

Please note: Take extra care during this process.

Do not cut adjacent boards or they may be damaged.

4. The tongue on the long and short sides of the new plank must be cut off with a hobby knife.

The groove needs to be trimmed slightly to ensure that the new plank will fit perfectly in that position.

5. Apply a small amount of epoxy glue to the edges of the new plank so that it can be better fixed.

6. Tap gently with a rubber mallet.

Weigh with a heavy but not sharp object for 24 hours until the glue has dried.
