Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Madpiper A must-have for wood/laminate floor
Yes, this is a the expensive side. And yes, it does take some practice to get good at matching grain, but it has to be the very best repair option available. I had 2 huge gouges/holes from dropping heavy equipment during the renovation of our home, and I reluctantly bought this kit thinking it would look okay at best. The photos don't really do it justice, because I honestly have a real hard time finding those gouges. Highly recommend buying this. Only thing, since I just used it, I can't speak on the longevity of the repair but it seems to be pretty solid, especially after using the finishing lacquer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woodguy8 Worked great!
We had a few boards that cracked in a new floor we laid. I purchased this kit and thought I'd give it a try before I went thru the process of replacing them. This kit worked great! It was fast and easy to match the color of the floor. The cracks were virtually invisible. Highly recommend

Great product. It takes some practice and patience, but the results are outstanding. I used some extra flooring to test the process on before going after the real thing. I would recommend this step to everyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sara It works, but takes time
I put a big scratch all the way across my living/dining room and needed something to fix it. It crossed too many boards to even consider replacing the boards, and the wood markers looked just like I had colored on my floor with markers. This product is a lot more expensive than the other floor repair options, but it gave more customization ability than anything else I could find. It's a lot easier to use and make look good in wider scratches and when the scratch goes with the grain. It takes a while to get the hang of how to blend just the right color and then it's tedious to add all the detail, but it's worth it.
My biggest complaint about this product is that the scraping tool need to be cleaned often in order to really level off the floor, but the little red thing they give you to clean the groves is pretty worthless. I ended up just using the tip of the melting tool once it cooled down. It worked well, it just added extra time because I had to let it cool before I could use it to scrape.
The pictures are from the widest part of the scratch (where it was the easiest to fix). In normal light, it's hard to see where the scratch was, but it's not as perfect as it looks and it's more apparent in bright light. I don't have pictures of the smaller areas where it's a lot easier to see it. But in all cases, it's way better than the raw scratch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NJGadgets Best wood repair kit I have found
Just used this product for the first time for several scratches/gouges on a wood floor. As others have stated, it takes some practice and patience to get it right but the results are excellent. Not a perfect match but much better than before. It is not cheap but it's worth it. I only used about 10% of the material and so I can use the kit for future repairs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KB Great choice for FIY at a reasonalbe cost and you will always be able to do it in the future at no further cost
Requires practice to get down to a science but once you do you can make your repair unnoticeable. Well worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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!
