Hi, my name is Joe Glavin from Philadelphia Floor. Today we’re going to repair holes in a floor with wood plugs. These particular holes in the floor are large. This is a commercial jobsite with a maple floor, and they bored holes to fit conduit through, as well as some plumbing. So the holes are larger than 3/4″, where most plugs are 3/4″. These plugs are anywhere from 1-1/4″ to 1-3/4″. Since these holes are through the subfloor and into the basement, we needed to install a new subfloor base for the hardwood plug to sit on. You’ll want to make sure you vacuum any loose debris around the hole as we will be using 3M Epoxy adhesive with the mixing nozzle and the application gun. These short mixing nozzles mix the appropriate amount of A and B material. Fill the hole with Epoxy and put Epoxy around the outside of the plug. Line up the grain and install the plug. Set the plug flush to the floor and allow the Epoxy to dry. Here are the key points for a conduit pipe hole and repair in a hardwood floor.
