Laminate flooring


Have a 20 by 20 room with click floating laminate flooring. There is water damage about 4 boards in from the side where the flooring was started from. It is cut around cabinets so really don't want to take up all the flooring to get to that side. Can you remove and reuse laminate from the starting edge?

Re: Laminate flooring


The likelihood of your removing and replacing laminate flooring is almost nil. It is not a very good product to begin with, and any unclicking of the edges will almost surely damage them to where they can't be reused. Finding replacement pieces may be a challenge as well.

Generally there is no shortcut to replacing a click lock floor. You will need to start from one edge, remove all flooring to include the bad, then replace it all with either new, or salvaged pieces.

Re: Laminate flooring


I agree. Patching is basically impossible and won't look good. Your best bet is to just replace the flooring. A 20 x 20 room shouldn't be too hard to do, depending on the type of flooring you pick.

Re: Laminate flooring


I guess you should at first remove water leakage if any that can further damage your floor in future.
