Buckling Laminate floor due to water leakage.


Is it OK to install another laminate floor on top of one that is slightly buckled rather than removing the buckled floor?

All thoughts and theories welcomed

Buckling Laminate floor due to water leakage.


if its the click together laminate it would only take less than an hour just to lift it up if its just one room.
if its buckled will the new floor hump up over the buckled area. i would remove it but its your floor.
any chance of just replacing the buckled pieces?

No, you cannot put another floor over the top of a buckled floor!
