Floor Split At Seam Of Plywwod

by Bruce Stainton
(Port Perry Ontario Canada)

Question: The floor has gave way from the sink area to the door in my hybrid trailer which is only three years old ---any suggestions to make a repair without taking the inside apart would be a great help.

Robbie: Assuming your floor is carpet you can slice a long straight razor cut in the carpet. Slide a thin stainless steel plate underneath. The carpet can be sealed back together by a carpet layer. You can get the stainless steel plate yourself, but I would advise you to have a carpet layer make the cut and reseal it.

If your floor isn't carpet you can lay hardwood floor which will replace its integrity.

These techniques are great for a cheap repair and are known to last a long time.

Important: If the issue is caused by a water leak you do not want to continue with these fixes until the leak is fixed. You do not want to lay floor over mold.

Thanks for your question and good luck with the repair,
