Bathroom Remodeling – San Jose – Bathroom Flooring – Laminate
The lead article (the table of contents if you will) is titled Bathroom Remodeling.
This article is also part of a mini-series of articles about bathroom flooring.
Laminate flooring is a style of wood flooring where a thin veneer of laminate is applied on top of a base of particle board or fiber board.
I am of the opinion that of the different types of wood flooring available, laminates should not be installed in your bathroom.
This is because the veneer is very thin, particle board swells when wet, and the your bathroom is the wettest room in your house.
Sooner or later some accident will cause a scratch in the floor.
It may even be hard to see.
But anything that scratches through the veneer provides water with a path to the particle board below.
If you really want a wood floor in your bathroom, please consider either:
- real hardwood flooring – 1/4″ thick planks of typically oak which are finished after they are installed
- engineered wood – similar in concept to laminate but of much higher quality – a very thick slice of real pre-finished wood applied on a base of fiberboard
It may seem tempting to shave some money on your bathroom remodeling by using an inferior quality wood flooring product, but laminate flooring in your bathroom will probably need to be replaced much sooner than either engineered wood or real wood.
So although you may save a little now, it will cost you much more down the road.
