    Best way to fix laminate vertically

    Hi there,

     

    I got a little problem with our laminate floor.

     

    The floor is made of little platform (semi steps) and has buckled on a vertical section (the step).

     

    I pulled the laminate to investigate the buckling and noted it was glued in parts which I thought you should not do but understand that here being vertical may be necessary to hold it in place.

     

    What the best way to repair and fix this vertical laminate step? Glue no glue? Clipped? Nailed? Or free held by edging?

     

    By the way is 1/4 inch expansion gap good enough for a 4 meters long stretch?

     

    Cheers,

    Marc.

    Thanks Richard,

     

    This is actually for a little platform made of wood not an actual stair case.

     

    Therefore there is no aluminium trim to attach to but there is a little edging which I think I could slot the laminate into. The edging is covering the join between the horizontal part and vertical part. Hopefully that and a dab of gripfil will do.

     

    Kind regards,

    Marc.
