Repair a Vinyl Floor Seam

Q: Can you tell me how to re-glue a seam in a vinyl floor? I’d hate to call a handyman if it’s something simple that I can do myself.

 
A: You can do it, provided you use the right type of glue and a special seam sealer kit, available at most flooring stores. First, heat the vinyl edges of the seam with a hair dryer. This should make the edges easier to peel back, so you can sweep away any dirt or debris. Line the seam with masking tape to protect the surface. Apply a multipurpose sheet flooring adhesive to the backing. Then flatten the seam with a weighted board while the glue dires. Use the seam sealer kit to bond together the edges of the seam. The kits typically contain a cleaner, applicator, sealer and catalyst—just follow the directions on the package.
