Question How do I repair loose 3" wide Hardwood Flooring?

I installed Bruce 3/8Ē Engineered Hardwood Flooring about 10 years ago on to a concrete slab and some the boards have come unglued. It is right in the center of the room and is only noticeable when walking on it by the spongy feeling otherwise you canít see it.

I saw a video of someone cutting the tongue between the boards and prying up the damaged piece and replacing it by cutting of the tongue of the replacement piece, but I want to avoid that. I was wondering if I could somehow inject new glue under the pieces that came loose.

the way you described is the only that Ive ever heard of...

Or shooting nails into it, but that wont work on concrete even if you wanted to.

it doesn't really bother me, but it may be an issue when I sell the place.

This is a video that found to replace the boards, but I'm just not sure if I can find the exact color to match the rest after 10 years.

Never hurt to try. Not sure of the ink size syringe. Anything would be better than pulling the board.

I use these whenever I have a problem..

I think epoxy would be too thick to get through a syringe. You might get away with Gorilla glue. Just be sure to sit something heavy on the spot until it dries or the stuff might swell up and make a lump..
