We've removed a wall and have a channel left in the hard wood floor. The base is concrete (a 1/2" goove), there's a thin layer of subflooring and then pine flooring (about 3/4 "). Instead of trying to patch it with wood, I've considered using those flat, rock like tiles with regular tile grout. But, I'm also wondering if I could use real stones (or marbles?) and some type of polymer. I'm worried about a more liquid filler seeping under the existing wood floor. Also, I'm not sure of the durablily of it.
Has anyone tried something like this?
You might put a bead of PL allong the bottom where the hardwood meets the floor to prevent seepage under the floor finishes. Also, whatever you use to fasten the stones or marbles will likely solidify in a short time so I don't think you would have to worry about it seeping into your floor.
Yes..I was facing same problem in my living area..your best option is to have furlong wood flooring in your home...It has the capacity to expand or contract according to moisture or temperature..no patch will be visible in surroundings...
Thank you. Hope it will help you.
