      I’m a 21 year veteran installer. I’ve done a lot of repair work. I’ll note
      three things to make this repair a bit better/faster. #1. Use Loctite Power
      Grab instead of the vinyl adhesive. It will hold better, and will grab
      pretty much instantly. #2. DO NOT get adhesive on the edge of the seam. #3.
      Use the proper seam seay bottle with a tip that can be inserted into the
      seam so you have a top to bottom seam weld. Coating the surface of the seam
      will keep dirt out, but not “weld” the vinyl.

      That is, if it’s a felt back, which that floor in the video is. Most vinyl
      floors are fiberback floors now. In which case, the adhesive in the seam is
      not an issue, the new fiberback flooring will not shrink and separate as
      felt back back. The other thing I would have done differently is, replace
      the blocks and put the seams on the shoulders of the blocks were they are
      invisible. That said, there’s as many way to do a repair as there are
      installers. :)
