Tear in Vinyl Flooring

I have a tear in my tear in my Vinyl Flooring. Is this repairable? How would you replace, seems like all one continuous sheet of vinyl.

I had a tear in mine and was able to fix it. I was able to buy a piece of vinyl that matched my floor from Rockwood and cut out a section to match and replace. As long as you follow the "grout" line it's pretty easy. Here are some links showing how.

I repaired mine with wood glue underneath and crazy glue on the edges. Holding up well after > 1 year. It's not perfect, but fast and easy. The pattern of the vinyl makes it hard to notice unless you're looking for it.

I called Rockwood and gave them my VIN and a picture of the vinyl. It wasn't cheap but worth it to match so well. You can't tell where I replaced.

I had a six inch tear in the center of the floor. about 1/2 inch wide and six inches long. Living near Houston tx in the winter I just did a search for vinyl repair on the internet. I hired a lady expert She arrived the next day and repaired the hole blending in the colors by hand. Great job total cost less than $200.

Which phone number produced the wanted result? I have to replace a section torn by a screw backing down from my slide's frame. It's an ugly tear.

This is the way to fix it. You may be able to cut a piece of vinyl from a spot that is never or almost never seen for the repair, like under or inside a cabinet, or under an appliance, if you cannot find the match.

Final Flooring repair

We had a rip in our final floor from a repair while at FROG Rally in Goshen. They brought out a person who repaired it perfectly so a repair is possible. I would check with local car dealers to see who they use.

Last year I dealt with Brooke Madden for the vinyl. It was $16 per linear foot (8 feet wide). I went ahead and got 2 feet to ensure I could pattern match. When they sent it to me it was almost twice what I asked for and it turns out what i needed was right at the edge so i have a lot as spare.

We had a tear in ours. The floor was an ugly pattern anyway. We fixed it by laying lifeprrof laminate flooring in the camper. Looks way better. It added a little bit of weight. Maybe 150lbs but the look is worth the weight.
