My mannington pecan laminate flooring is water damaged at the back door in my kitchen. I want to cut out the damaged area and put in a tile floor. My question is what do I use for the transition or separation from the tile and the existing flooring. Any suggestion are welcome. Thank you Doreen

Is there any laminate flooring that is terminte proof? Or will stand up better that wood?

Julian Marcuzzi December 12, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Hi Wayne,

Thank you for the inquiry.

Laminate Flooring is a completely synthetic material, and as such, has no appeal for termites.

Thanks,

Julian

Your video on 5 Things To Know About Buying Laminate Flooring is very informative. Thank you. Does all of that information also apply to engineered hardwood flooring? My condo is heated via radiant heat which, of course, means that water is running through pipes that are encased in concrete flooring. In this case, moisture-resistance is a larger than usual issue. How reliable is engineered hardwood flooring with this type of heating system?

Rob Jones March 28, 2014 at 8:12 pm

Engineered wood differs from laminate in a fundamental way, even if they’re kind of similar in terms of board design. With engineered, you get real wood as opposed to an image of wood (or stone, etc) that you’d get with laminate. As such, if you are thinking of going with engineered flooring, make sure that the particular product line is radiant heat-friendly. A lot of engineered wood products are. But, not all of them.

How would you do a hall way with laminate floor that is less than 5 foot wide?
