Question

Laminate flooring in frame house


I have a frame house (on blocks) that has the typical frame house movement problem. Other than an occasional sheetrock seam separation, I have no problems with it. I am considering replacing the carpet with laminate flooring because of the cleanliness issue but my wife tells me that laminate flooring would buckle in this type of house. I was under the impression that laminate flooring was actually a floating floor and that it wouldn't move if the house shifted. Your opinions please.

As long as the floor is flat it will work fine.
