I am going to put laminate/wood look flooring in my Kitchen, this is also an entrace into my condo. Serveral people I have talked to have recommended Wilsonart. I would like others opions as well the need for mosture barriers.
Thanks

Moisture barriers are used under the lam if installed on concrete.

Wilsonart is my favorite, and it will do well, buy estate plus if you can afford it.

Caulk the expansion space with a clear silicone.

Florcraft is right but I usually put down 2 coats of sealer on concrete and stick with the vapor barrier.

I don't sugest you put any laminate, or "engineered" type floor in an area that will get moisture on a regular basis, like an entry. Your'e better off with solid wood flooring over a membrane. I do a lot of repairs to lam floors, because of moisture. Though Wilsonart is a good product.

I understand. yet, it may be very useful for someone coming in new, to find a match to their current problem. I belong to a few car and guitar collectors/restorers sites too. we have threads that are 10yrs old, many even older, that people use everyday. i get several emails a week on threads from the 90s. if folks only view the latest topics, they likely do not find what they are looking for, unless they post a new question. I came on looking for a response to a similar issue, not to post a question that may be a repeat from.......... whenever.
