old to new laminate

Report Post Today, 06:12 PM
A plumbing leaked ruined 1/3 of our Harmonics brand(Costco) laminate floor. At the time of installation, the planks required a separate padding to be installed before the laminate planks. The NEW Harmonics that is compatible comes with the padding already attached to each plank. There is a height difference in the old and the new that I can overcome if I can remove the pre-attached padding from the new flooring, then use the old style padding. My question is: Can the pre-attached padding on the plank be removed reasonably easily? Thanks.

Pad Removal

The pad can be removed with a razor scraper. I have had to do that before myself. You can find a 4" razor scraper at your local home center for about $15. They'd be in the flooring and paint departments.

If you take a utility knife and cut the pad lengthwise with the laminate (into thirds), it will scrape off easier.
