Concerned about my floor repair

I had a screw come up and push the floor up. I sliced an X across the screw head. Screwed back down. Filled the. Kid with wood filler and cover the vynel adhesive. My concern is I have heard of floors splitting in the cold. Did I just start a potential split?

My 2 cents, assuming its a very small "X" that you made. As long as the screw stays put and you got the proper adhesion with your glue you should be okay.

X was about 3/4" - 1" cuts

Maybe you can email the tech division of the company that makes the adhesive and ask about the tensile strength of a repair. I know with the repair I made it never came apart. The flooring wasn't glued down to the sub floor and lifted in places when we heated it up on a stop over heading south in the early spring, but the glue seam stayed together.

I think you'll be good. The explanation I received from our flooring guy when I replaced our split floor, was that the free floating floor seems to tear from poorly cut slits around a heat register when they cut the vinyl to fit. His thought was that if the cut was more precise and if they would have glued down the floor, they wouldn't have the issue. He's been doing it 20 years and has RV floor repairs from the manufactures installs all the time. He has more experience with it than I.

I would put vinyl seam sealer on the X cut that you made, I will fuse the vinyl it's self back together.
