Special Installation For Bathrooms?

Laminate flooring can be installed into bathrooms, provided you take certain precautions. For starters, use only laminates with square edges- no beveled edge floors. Although most laminate floors do not require an adhesive, laminate glue should be used for installation in the bathroom. Apply a bead of glue to the groove of each board before clicking in the next plank. Also, though laminate requires an expansion gap around all vertical obstructions including walls, permanent cabinets, pipes, etc., this gap must be filled with a quality silicone caulk to prevent water from leaking underneath the floor.
