What is laminate flooring?
Laminate flooring is a hard surface that usually looks like hardwood (occasionally looks like tile). It has a picture of hardwood floors (it isn’t real), but some of the more upscale versions do look very real. On top, it has a melamine wear layer which give it strong scratch protection, and underneath, there is a high density core board. Laminate flooring is usually around 3/8 of an inch and can often be placed on top of existing flooring – whether it’s concrete, tile or even hardwood (assuming the floor underneath is stable and even).
Laminate flooring is a floating floor that clicks together into place. Laminate flooring it is NOT waterproof. It is generally not a good idea to install laminate flooring in any place where you tend to get a lot of water or that is humid (or that has high fluctuations in humidity level throughout the seasons) – this would mean that it is generally not good for most basements or bathrooms.
Because laminate is a hard (and inflexible) surface, it is important that the floor or subfloor underneath is level and relatively smooth. If it isn’t, the laminate flooring will move a lot when you walk on it and if it is too bumpy or too sloped underneath, it can even crack and break.
Like hardwood flooring, laminate floors should acclimate in the home before it’s installed. It should be in there for at least 24 hrs, but ideally 48 or more hours. This allows it to properly expand/contract for the conditions in that room. During this time, the room should be set to normal temperature/humidity conditions for that time of year (so if you are moving into a new home and don’t live there yet, it’s important to put the heat or AC on (pending time of year) during the acclimation and installation process.
