help!! hardwood floor replace.


Hi.
As attached pictures, small part of the floor warped by water damage.
I don't want to replace the whole floor.
I hope to replace this damaged part only or as small part as possible.
I need to flattened this area with similar color.
Because my landlord want me to fix it in 5 days, I don't have much budget.
Is it possible to find suitable piece? The thickness is 1/2. I don't have any knowleges about the flooring.
Please help me.

I live in downtown Toronto area. If you know any contractor who can deal with this problem, please give me information.

help!! hardwood floor replace.


I would like to know whether can I change only the damaged part. Because landlord brought contractor and landlord said I have to replace the whole unit.
Because it is hard to find the exact same one.
I don't know the process of the hardwood replace.
So, if it is possible to find suitable piece, I would like to try asking to landlord to replace it with very similar color.

IF you can match the flooring, then yes, you can replaced just the damaged part.

But why they asking me to change the whole unit?
Landlord said it is impossible to find the match, because hardwood piece is very different for many reason.
What do I know to find the match? The thickness is 1/2. What else make the hardwood different?

I don't understand why you would have to replace the whole floor due to some water damage. You said the word "landlord" which means you are a renter? If this is the case, why is the landlord not fixing the water problem? Who or what caused the water problem? Does the landlord not have insurance to cover this type of damage on his property? If you were the one that caused the damage and are somehow responsible I can see you replacing the damaged area, but not the whole floor. If you feel the landlord is not being fair with you, you might need to do the following:

Get you own estimate from a flooring company that can repair just the damaged material.
Consult an attorney to advise you if you believe you are being treated unfairly. Renters have certain rights as well as property owners.


Just from the short information I can see of your problem, I can't see how the landlord says he is justified in a brand new floor. From the looks of it, you could take a piece of the wood to Home Depot, Lowes, or Lumber Liquidators to try and find a match, which looks like it wouldn't be to hard. This floor as a couple of different color shades in it, so getting anything close would probably match. The subfloor may also need a little work. In any event, this looks like it wouldn't be to hard to fix. Also ask about different thresholds that might help with the look of the transition as you go from hardwood to tile.

If you are a renter, you are being taken advantage of by your landlord. You have rights.

Talk to a lawyer.
