Look no further than our reliable handyman team! We have decades of experience restoring damaged floors to their former glory, and we can do the same for your home or commercial property. Here are some of the common types of flooring repair Vancouver, WA homeowners often request from our professionals.
HARDWOOD FLOORING REPAIR
Wood floors are a very popular choice in Vancouver and pretty much everywhere else because of their natural beauty, durability and longevity. While hardwood is a great investment in the appeal and function of your home, it is susceptible to certain types of damage that necessitate flooring repair. Vancouver, WA can depend on our professionals for expert hardwood floor repair services that will make their hardwood surfaces look brand-new again. With the right hardwood repair strategies, we can eliminate problems such as:
- Flaking or peeling wood stain
- Buckling or heaving boards
- Rotted patches that are crumbling or soft
- Sun-bleached patches
TILE FLOORING REPAIR
Tile floors are another exceptionally popular choice. Unlike hardwood, porcelain and ceramic tile are water-resistant which makes them a great option for kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, and other areas that are prone to moisture exposure. However, that water resistance can be weakened by problems such as cracks, loose pieces, or a single smashed or missing piece, making it necessary to call your handyman for flooring repair. Vancouver, WA professionals on our team can provide flooring repair services to correct problems such as:
- Crumbling or cracked grout lines
- Grimy, dirty grout
- Minor chips and cracks
- Sinking or heaving tiles
- Replacement for one damaged piece
VINYL FLOORING REPAIR
Luxury vinyl planks or tiles (LVP or LVT) are relative newcomers to the flooring scene that have a lot going for them. They're durable, inexpensive, easy to maintain, and look just like natural wood or stone. While vinyl doesn't typically suffer a lot of problems that require flooring repair, Vancouver, WA homeowners sometimes call us to fix cosmetic surface issues or replace a seriously damaged plank. We can correct issues such as:
- Gouges or scratches
- Crumbling edges

Frequently Asked Questions About Flooring Repair
WHERE CAN I FIND A PERFECTLY MATCHING REPLACEMENT TILE?
This is a difficult question because often the answer is that you can't. Tiles are frequently discontinued, so the exact design you installed a few years ago may not be available to purchase anymore. Even if it is, tile is manufactured in lots so the same style from a different lot may not be an exact match. This is why it's a good idea to save a few pieces when you have a new surface installed, but even if you did do that, they may still not be a perfect match because the ones installed have taken wear and tear damage. A tile that isn't a good match will stick out in all the wrong ways, so if the right piece isn't available, replacing the entire tile installation may be the best course of action.
CAN PATCHES OF ROTTEN WOOD BE FIXED WITH FLOORING REPAIR?
Rotten wood has had some parts of the fibers eaten away, such as lignin or cellulose (depending on the type of rot). That means there's no way to make it just as solid and appealing as it was before, and the typical way of dealing with rotted wood flooring is to remove the affected board or boards and replace them altogether. Wood rot repair is possible for minor damage, but it needs to be painted to conceal the repair and that's not usually the best solution for floors.
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO MAINTAIN VINYL PLANKS OR TILES?
Luxury vinyl tiles and planks are pretty easy to maintain. For the most part, you can get away with just dry mopping and the occasional spot cleaning. Here are a few tips to get the most life out of your vinyl surfaces:
- Wipe up liquid spills right away as some substances can stain vinyl
- Use a soft mop, rags or brush, and avoid abrasive cleaning tools like steel wool
- Vacuum or dry mop regularly to remove particles of dirt that can cause a filmy haze of scratches.
