Hardwood floor "spot" repair


Hi everyone,

I have just bought a house. The floors on the first floor are in great shape....except for a small area in the master bedroom that was damaged. See attached photograph.

Can this type of damage be repaired locally or must the entire room be resurfaced? The master bedroom connects with the rest of the floor and I don't really wish to redo the entire floors only for a small damaged spot.

Any advice?

If it is a prefinished floor the boards can be cut out and replaced. You will have to have replacement boards. If it is a job site finish each individual board can be sanded and finished to match the rest.

Thanks woodman, I'm concerned with matching color with the existing floor. Any tips? Is this something I can do myself or should I resort to a pro?

Your floor seem like prefinished Bruce butterscotch solid oak. I think u can get it at home depot. If u dont have experience on how to take them out and replace it u should get a floor guy to do it.
