Is Laminate Water Resistant?

No laminate is waterproof. Some laminates have moisture resistant cores to help with moisture but not make it waterproof. The aluminum oxide coating is water resistant but you will not want to let a water puddle set on the laminate too long, wipe up the spill as soon as possible. If you let the water set too long, the water will travel to the seams between the planks and cause warping of the boards. This warping is a result of water damage and you will have to replace the board(s).
