Unfortunately the damage went wider than one panel, so cutting and pasting was required. He wondered why he was having trouble cutting, forgot there was a cyclone rod in there. Cyclone rods hold the walls to the steel beams under the floors.
Removing glue and MDF.
Over time like products seem to change, usually for the better, in this case the improvements to the glue used in the MDF resist water damage now. However the spacing of the grooves is different, which required some shaping by Mr CH.
Gluing a support board, because we cheated by not removing a full length.
The red rug that started it all!
Now I get the job of picking a colour (no antique white USA around here, lol)
Now I could live with this for awhile, but it's bugging Mr CH.
Hope you're not flooded in like we were for the second January in a row.
Have a great week, with some sunshine, hopefully
