Vinyl question

My seams in the middle of my kitchen floor have broken apart in several places. How do I fix them? They have just split where the two pieces were originally put together.

Find out the brand and buy the appropriate seam sealer, then follow the directions.
The only problem with that, is that it may be curling beyond control. Then some metal flatbar would fix it, but look lame.

Is your floor warrantied for install?

It's not under warranty and it doesn't appear to be curling, just split. I'll look into this suggestion. Do you have any others?

you don't mention how old the floor is. Is this house less than 10 years old?... maybe some settling and the floor moving? Look at the house closley for cracking in the foundation and if you have a full basement with a girder, look at where the lally columns go to the basement floor. Is there cracking in the concrete floor around this area? This might just be the house moving around a bit. especially if the installer had the seam along a plwood joint and didn't stagger the joints. This is highly improbable, but who knows???? If the floor is 10 years old it probly due for a change in color and style anyway.... Maybe this is just the motivator for a change....
