The brilliant guys in the laminate flooring industry have come up with a huge selection of color-coordinated transition moldings. You can finish your do it yourself home remodeling project in style and with an elegant touch. Trim doorways with T-Moldings, while end moldings are used along sliding doors and around tubs and basins. If you need to go from a raised laminate flooring area to a lower hard surface such as vinyl, choose a hard surface reducer.
You may consider the durability and non-porous qualities of floor resin options or the shiny look of a urethane concrete floor, but what will the floors look like several months from now? Rubber flooring is not the right option for industrial flooring applications for a number of reasons, even though they offer slip-proof safety for your employees. Tile floors can look stylish, but they can be high maintenance and get slick when wet. Is there an option in industrial flooring that offers everything commercial operations need?
Moisture resistance: Moisture is the number one enemy of laminate flooring; the moisture resistance of your laminate floor will be determined by the quality as well as the moisture resistance of its HDF core; the rule of the thumb is the harder the HDF core, the better the quality of your laminate flooring.
The surface of a quality laminate flooring product is usually highly water resistant, so the planks perform beautifully in high humidity areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. To prevent buckling and warping in these areas, the expansion spaces need to be sealed with a product such as Pergo Sealant or a similar mildew-resistant silicone sealant before installing the trim or molding. The same should be done where the planks were cut to make room for cupboards or a dishwasher. It may also be wise to seal the joints by using glue. Your supplier will be able to advise you about the most satisfactory installation process. Keep in mind that, in spite of its water resistance, a laminate flooring installation and standing water will never be friends. If there is a spill, wipe it dry immediately.
