Repairing Stud repairing synthetic turf Areas
This blog is just a how to repairing synthetic turf . based on my experience and actions.We usually use a contractor to do this, but with funds now stretched we decided to give it and go in house.
Take a look at my 7 step in photos below to how l achieved this.
I hope you find it helpful and time will tell whether it holds, but certainly is the correct glue and adhesive (envirosikostcik)and can be purchased on amazon or ebay.
Sadly though, the carpet really is being warn down by players using studs and the carpet will need replacing in the next 2/3 years at a considerable cost.So if you can stop the players wearing studs in the net area you will save much effort and long term cost.
A contractor can do this , but in my experience not that cheaply so hope your find this a possible way of saving some valuable funds.
List of Tools and Conclusion
1-Knife 2-Level or straight edge 3-Tape measure 4-Dustpan and brush or broom 5-Adhesive and glue 6-Weights for pressing down. Ideally l would have had a optical grass adhesive comb, created a better groove for the glue/adhesive mix.
