Description of Laminate Flooring
Laminate Flooring mimics the look of traditional woods while offering easy installation and lasting durability. At first glance, it can be difficult to spot the difference between hardwoods and laminate flooring. What appears to be a natural wood grain pattern is really a thin layer of decor paper (a photographic image) under a tough-as-nails protective film that is glued and pressed to a high-density backing board. Laminate flooring comes in an array of wood effects as well as stone and ceramic effects.

- Q:how to repair liquid damage to engineered hardwood flooring?
- If you are noticing moisture damage at the seems, then you either have a very cheap engineered hardwood floor or a laminate floor. If you are seeing separation of the laminate or swelling of the joints, there is little you can do other than waiting for the floor to completely dry. If the swelling/separation remains, then the only option is to replace the damaged planks.
- Q:is it necessary to seal a concrete floor when laying engineered hardwood floor?
- You really need to check with the manufacturer of your flooring but many manufacturers recommend that you cover a two or three foot square area of the concrete with a sheet of plastic with all of the edges sealed with tape so any moisture that might be migrating up from below the slab will be trapped. You let the sheet set undisturbed for 24 to 48 hours. If there is a moisture, you will see drops of water or at least the concrete will be damp. If this test shows no moisture then you don't have to worry about sealing the concrete. In any case most engineered floor systems use a thin plastic foam sheet that when completely taped at the joints serves as both padding and a vapor barrier.
- Q:Hardwood or engineered bamboo flooring. Which is better for 1st floor of house. House is built over a crawl-?
- 100% engineered floor. The solid wood is not a good idea with the amount of moisture you likely have coming up from the crawlspace. Engineered is designed to withstand alot of the movement associated with solid wood, but it should still not be installed unless certain moisture and humidity ranges are met. Have a professional stab the subfloor with a moisture meter. If you are getting over 16%, then even engineered wood is probably not a great idea. If you proceed with the engineered wood, be sure to glue it down with a moisture cured urethane or you can trowel on a moisuture vapor barrier like Bostik MVP. Being 100 ft from the canal, you probably should stick with tile. Have a professional flooring company come out to give you an estimate and ask them to test the moisture in the subfloor. Then just check with different manufacturers to see if that fits within their recommended range.
- Q:Any advice on installing engineered wood floors?
- Here are some tips: When cutting, saw into the prefinished side first to avoid chipping the finish. Always use a carbide-tipped blade. Use blue painters tape along the area to be cut to help prevent chipping the prefinished surface. Use a tapping block to move the hardwood into position. Do not hit the hardwood flooring directly. Keep the installation area as clean as possible. Do all the cutting in another area. Place tools on a piece of cardboard on top of your hardwood to avoid scratching or damaging your new floor. Always work from your subfloor, not your new hardwood floor. All of these tips came from the quick installation guide that I posted.
- Q:what is the hardest engineered hardwood floor?
- Hi, You need to take a look at the Janka hardness scale to see which is the hardest. Ebony is one of the hardest but will be expensive. You need to also take a look at plank construction and finish as to durability of a hardwood. Buy from a quality company that has a good reputation. Mirage engineered floors has won a survey by retailers for quality for the fourth time. They are a quality engineered product that has a wear layer that is equal to 3/4 solid wood and can be sanded 3-5 times during its life. Bruce is another name that is highly recommended. Hope this helps.
- Q:how to install wood floors?
- Your question cannot be answered in detail as you ask it. First of all, what kind of wood floors are you taking about, 3/4 hardwood, 3/8 hardwood, laminate, engineered flooring. . .what? Second, what are you installing the floor over, wood or concrete? That will determine what kind of flooring you can use. Finally, there are certain ground rules that are common to most wood flooring. First, make sure the subfloor is level. If you have peaks and valleys in your subfloor, it will stress the flooring and cause premature failure. Know what kind of moisture barrier you need. This will depend on whether the flooring is in a dry (living room, etc.) environment or a wet one like a kitchen or bathroom. Pay attention to the maximum height of your flooring and use the underlayment thickness that will get you to the right height. Keep flooring about 1/4 away from walls to allow for flooring expansion and contraction with moisture and temperature. Finally, for wood floors, allow the flooring to come to temperature in the room it will be installed for at least 72 hours. I strongly suggest you do your homework and research what kind of flooring you want, and what will be best for your application. Unless you have the fundamentals down, you are wasting our time with a non-specific question such as yours.
- Q:How to make solid wood flooring
- The floor we can make on-site production, from the simple wood, is unable to make the catch is, the general method is to do our site logs cut into thick 1.5-2 inside the wood keel fixed on the ground, and then the special paint brush (wooden floor in the building materials market can buy paint shop primer and topcoat, to see the price brand and weight, ranging from 60-500 yuan, floor wax in a hardware store or supermarket is generally ranging from 20-80 yuan
- Q:Solid wood floor wax is good or good
- The removal of dirt and dirt on the surface of wood floorsFirst of all, the use of vacuum cleaners to remove the surface of the wood floor of garbage and dust. Wipe the stains on the wooden floor with diluted neutral detergent. On the wooden floor is difficult to remove stains can be used to wipe water. In order to prevent detergent products stay in the trench, soak the detergent cloth to wring dry. Remind you of floor wax scavenger will lead to the wood floor caused mark stains and bulging, absolutely can not use.
- Q:Hard Wood Engineered Floor - Float or Glue?
- Last summer I installed about 1200 ft2 of floating wood floor in 5 different places in the house. After a year everything is looking good and there are no issues with floor. I was careful to make sure the floor had room for expansion and there are no humps or shrinkage openings. Neighbor across the street has a few humps in his glued down version. When you walk across the floor, there is a slightly hollow sound but I have had this in nail down floors. Where the floor slab had some dips the sound is a little more hollow. One of the reasons that I decided to go with the floater is that I could work at my own pace and not have to brace the floor so that it did not expand overnight with the glued version. I did a nail down 1300 ft2 in a previous home and it was solid with 15 pound tar paper under it. That floor had the hardwood click to it. It was much harder to install than this floater. In looking at the fact that the flooring is not all exactly straight and perfect and that I could not do 700 ft2 in a day and did not want to brace, I would probably go with the floater again. You still need a vapor barrier under the glued floor to prevent moisture absorption through the slab.
