OK, I need some assistance FAST. Little run down.
Prior to selling our home, I had a 6ft fish tank sitting in the living room. It was sitting on the existing flooring, which was carpet. All the flooring that was around the tank, and throughout the house was upgraded to allure flooring at one point. Now that we sold the house, I moved the tank to it's new home, and needed to remove the carpet that was underneath it, and replace it with more of the allure plus.

I did this yesterday. Upon doing so, it was a bear to join the existing allure, to the new allure without it showing any gaps at the ends. So I have this 24" seam/gap that sticks out like a sore thumb.

I have our final walk through this coming Thursday. Is there anything I can do to at least fill the seam in? I can't use clear, or white caulk, that won't stand out. With the flooring being different shades of "oak", it is impossible to match.

I did think of buying some wood filler (although this is NOT wood), but I am not sure how bad that will stand out once dried. What can I do here?

Re: allure plus repair


Is it likely something will sit there when the new owners furnish the room? If so, I wouldn't worry about it.

Re: allure plus repair


I'd say yes to that. It's offset from a light switch, and a receptacle. I could see it being covered, but I could also see it left exposed. Obviously when they do the final walk through, it will stand out since the house is now empty.

Re: allure plus repair


Right, I'm just thinking that if they plan to put something there or replace the flooring, they may not care.
