Can I Put Laminate Flooring On Top Of A Radiant Heated Floor?

Absolutely, however there are some precautions that must be taken before installation. The radiant heat system must be run for at least 4 days at 64-72 degrees before acclimating the floor. After that, be sure to acclimate the floor for at least 48 hours. After completion, do not change the radiant heat for at least another 48 hours. Finally, NEVER raise the flooring surface temperature above 82 degrees. Minor gapping between planks during the heating season is a normal occurrence with laminate over radiant heated subfloor installations. Proper humidity controls will help to minimize this type of natural reaction to seasonally changing climate conditions.
