wisteria lane?


has anybody had any problems with this product, is it more succeptible to moisture then other products? is it possible that moisture permeates up through a slab and throught the green foam egg carton looking padding to cause buckling? thanks

Just saw your other post on this...

How thick is the padding? It would seem to me what you have is too thick. Most padding for laminate floors isn't much thicker than 1/8".

Moisture could also play a factor. A floor in a humid area could expand and contract until it finaly settles over time. Make sure to test for moisture as well using a meter. See if levels are within tolerance.

thanks, the padding is at least a 1/4 inch and the slab was having moisture problems before. the old wood floor was glued down before and was rotting because of the moisture. the floor we put in is causing us soooo much problems. how do i test for moisture? what type of meter?
