Dent filling for engineered hardwood flooring

496 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  de-nagorg
I recently had some cabinetry put into my home, and the carpenter was a bit lazy with setting his tools down. We now have about 10-15 dings throughout the room from his hammer being tossed down, sitting at about 3/4" long, 1/8" deep. After browsing this forum and several others, I didn't find exactly what I was looking for... I was considering picking up some clear epoxy to fill the dents, then scuff them up with a fine grit sandpaper afterwards (if needed). The color remains within the indentation, so the main goal here is to level these all out without risking messing up the color. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Try laying a wet sponge on the dents, sometimes water will swell the substrate enough to force the dent to pop back up.

May leave the sponge on the dent for an hour or so, to give it time to absorb water.

This is inexcusable behavior, should have laid hardboard sheets down first to protect the fine flooring.

As stated get your homeowners insurance in the mix, they will do all the legal crap to get their money back from the SCAB.
