1. laminate has nothing to do with a "click, floating floor." It refers to the composition of the materials.

3. Some people confuse the terminology of these floors, easy to do, not a problem unless things are not clarified and understood completely as to what you actually have or are talking about.
Why should your "head asplode"??? I was talking about differences between laminate vs engineered solely. I have come across people who confuse laminate with engineered. Simple as that. Sorry to "offend" you. By the way...the word is EXPLODE.... if I used wrong terminology i do appreciate your correction. Thanks!

Water Damaged Floor

The first thing to do is call a professional restoration company in your area to give you a free estimate of your damage. You may not need to necesarily replace a portion of your water damaged floor, but have them dry it instead. The process may take several weeks, but thorough drying under the floor is very important. The floor may appear dry on the surface but have trapped moisture underneath, which will continue to damage new planks and cause mold. This link has more information:
