How to fix damaged vinyl floor roll
1 Attachment(s)
Hi, we have a 500 sq ft room behind our house that we access through a covered walkway. After we bought the house we discovered a corner of the foundation had broken away. That has been repaired, but now the corner of the vinyl floor has been torn away. It's a roll of vinyl and it's dated, so the chances of finding something that matches to patch it with are slim. I've been looking at options for putting a new floor down, but they're all $300+ so I thought I would ask a forum for cheap ideas for fixing. This is my hail mary pass before having to replace the whole floor. Any ideas (picture attached)?

That pattern looks pretty common. You should be able to find something close in a peel and stick vinyl tile. I would try to find the closes peel and stick. All you need is 4 tiles. Lay all 4 down in the corner and then trace the the outer edge. Then remove the existing flooring up to the traced line and lay the 4 new tiles into place. That should be a good fix other then replacing the whole floor.
