You say this happens every spring does it? Well then please ignore my ignorance, I did a search on it and found nothing!

Also, you assume I have some of the matching 12 year old lino laying around which I can assure you is not the case.

Thanks for you 2 cents though...
I'm not saying that this will happen every Spring, but it does happen to someone every Spring. There HAVE been numerous posts about it. Why does the new linoleum have to match, you will be replacing the entire floor in that room. Sorry if you are offended. Just trying to help. I've fixed several of these over the years. I can understand that you are upset, just trying to help.

You may not have gotten any hits based on the search words you used, but it certainly does come up pretty regularly.

This was the first couple that came up when I searched.

Minnie Winnie Flooring Cracked Thread.

Second thread where cracked flooring (and tub surround) cracked.

If you want to replace sheet vinyl yourself and worried about screwing up all the cuts in a small area just get some of this paper or similar and make a template. No need for a professional. Maybe cut a little big and trim.

I have done that before in small baths. Probably could find some nice vinyl remnants ( roll ends )pretty cheap. Just check, some of the better vinyls are not supposed to be glued all over, depends on the backing.

I am sold on the new vinyl planking but not sure how it would do in really cold climates. Luckily we don't have hat issue.


It's called a couture gauge, $10-$15 exact shape. Try word floors around a rock fire place, plank floors around cabinets.

That's the tool. I have used it installing hardwood around fireplaces and cabinets, handy tool to have around for odd cuts.
