Board Replacement Procedures for Hybrid Waterproof Hardwood with Rigid Core

Board Replacement Procedures

If a plank is damaged, it can be easily replaced, even if it is in the center of the room.

  1. Identify the tongue side and end of the board board that needs to be replaced.
  2. Run a utility knife between the beveled edges, applying enough pressure to score into the tongue. Repeat the process until you cut all the way through. See illustration:
  3. Carefully remove the damaged board.
  4. Clean the area thoroughly of any debris.
  5. Using the utility knife, cut off the same parts of the new board.
  6. Carefully lay the new board where the damaged board was removed to ensure a good fit. Slight trimming may be needed.
  7. Once you’re happy with the fit, remove the board and apply adhesive recommended for IXPE pad into the area being replaced. We recommend Bruce Tufflink adhesive.
  8. Once the new board is installed, apply a heavy weight for 24 hours to allow the glue to set.
