I have ceramic tile throughout my house. The floor in my kitchen was badly chipped and I had resolved myself to either living with it or replacing the flooring throughout the house. I saw this product on line and thought, what the heck. It's expensive, but if it does the job, it's worth it. I watched the video on you tube and decided to give it a try. As many of the other reviews stated, it takes some practice to get it right. My biggest struggle was getting the right color match. I ended up using a paper plate to mix my colors. Once I figutred out the right color combination it was a breeze! The floor looks AWESOME! I wish I had taken a before picture. You can't find the spots I fixed at all. Super excited. The price is well worth it!

This was the best fix for the floor without replacing the section of flooring which would of cost a lot more.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYAmateur Excellent Product!
I have a Merbau color/grain laminate floor which received a 2-foot long scratch when a heavy cabinet was moved across the grain - although the scratch was not real deep it was very noticeable. I tried the manufacture's repair kit - but it was a single tone and looked terrible. Of course it was in the middle of the floor and to replace the planks would have required removal of about 250sqft of floor. I saw this video on YouTube and ordered immediately - I AM IMPRESSED!!
It took a little time to get used to the product, but I found a few tips that may help others along: first, as my scratches didn't penetrate below the laminate top, I used a tiny chisel to create a trough down to the subsurface. This allowed a good amount of working depth for blending the colors. ALWAYS start with the lightest color and scrape away excess wax after each application. When you have it right (TAKE YOUR TIME!) then use the degreasing pad GENTLY WITH the GRAIN and only over the wax area (otherwise it dulls the floor too). Continue with sealant as directed.
It took me about 4-hours to repair this scratch - but it was totally worth it (AND the $70) because it is 99% invisible! I mean you REALLY have to look to find it - even when you KNOW where it is! Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jflo Product very easy to use. I would buy it again!
Product was easier than i thought to apply. After a couple of tries I was able to get the hang of it and away i went repairing everything in sight! I applied to a heavy traffic area in my kitchen, so hopefully it will last a while. Trial and error is the only key to matching the colors, so cant knock this product for that and you will have to be creative and have some patience while you work at your repair and matching the colors. The product does provide enough colors to allow good mixes to match mainly browns and tones of brown (white, black and a clear is also provided). The finish of the repair does blend in very well with the tile, however not completely perfect, but for a repair job, you cant beat the quality of repair this product provides you (sure beats grinding out and replacing the tile!!!). What i like about this product is the fact that if you dont like what you just did, simply melt it away by applying the tip to the repair and wipe away with a towel - then you can start over. The plastic box is very secure and will last a while and protect the pieces inside nicely. The tip of melter does get very hot so must becareful!!! I am a DIY'r and overall a good buy on my part with this product since there are many different applications that i think i can use this to make some repairs.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ReviewerInNY Worth the money
I used to buy the cheap $10 laminate repair kits that just had some filler and a colored pen. When I couldn't find the right color kit for my floor at the local store I came online to search for it and found this kit instead. I was wary about the price but I knew I could return it if it didn't work so I decided to take a chance on it. I'm glad I did. It is way better than the cheaper kits I have used. It does require some patience and practice, but the results are very good. It's worth the money and I would definitely buy it again.
