My kitchen floor is sheet vinyl, and at one doorway there is a metal edging strip holding the sheet vinyl down, forming a downward crease in the sheet vinyl where it meets the hardwood floor in the adjacent room. After 12 years, a 1/8" crack has now developed in the crease, and it is already several inches long and rather visible. How can I patch this crack until I can replace the floor in a year (as part of an overall kitchen remodel)?
The metal edging strip in the doorway is angled. On the lineoleum side, it's about 1/2" wide, and on the hardwood floor side it's 1" wide (the hardwood floor is lower than the linoleum). So maybe I could replace the edging strip with a wider one and just cover up the crack in the lineolum -- not a bad idea. Maybe I can find an angled edging strip that is 1" on both sides of the angle. I assume that I can just pry the edging strip up?
