Q: This morning I dropped a very hot burner from the stove off onto my laminated wood floor. I now have a burner ring burn mark on the floor.
What should I do? Can you replace just the one board or do I need to replace the whole floor? Or can that board be repaired?
A: This is the hard surface laminate, like your counter top? I don’t think there is any way to repair it. However, if it is a click joint, you may be able to remove the one panel and install a new one. Torlys, who make very good laminates have developed a special puller for removing such panels from the middle of the room. If however, there was no space at the walls, as installation requires, this will be a problem. www.torlys.com
