Well pleased with this.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1 x Laminate Floor Worktop Furniture Repair Kit (L) For Beech, Light Beech, Warm Beech, Honey Beech, Ash, Birch, Light Oak, Maple, Pine, Medium Oak, Light Teak, Natural Teak and similar shades (Misc.)
I have a laminate floor which looks like it is a pale-coloured ceramic tile. It’s about 7 years old and has picked up a few chips over the years. I also have dark grey/black granite-look laminate worktops with some chips out of the corners. I was thinking it might be time to replace and then I spotted this, along with some other colours from the same supplier. So I took the plunge and bought them – being as these are far cheaper than replacing what I have. I did not expect too much given some of the other reviews but I can honestly say I am well pleased with the results. I am an experience DIY-er and a bit of a perfectionist. The product is like a hard wax crayon and you use it as if it is a filler. It takes a bit of practice to blend the colours but once I got the hang of it, I could make almost invisible repairs to both the floor and the worktops. (I had a spare piece of laminate in garage which I damaged and then practiced on). The instructions are right - start light and gradually go darker - but sparingly, as it is difficult to remove. In over half the repairs I did, my partner could not tell where the repair was. The repairs have survived the floor-mop a few times as well, so seem robust. And there's plenty left if I need to do more.
