Can I Use Laminate Flooring Outdoors?

Laminate flooring cannot be installed outdoors; this flooring needs to be placed in a climate-controlled area. While laminate is not hardwood, it still contains wood fibers in the core that will expand and contract with temperature. Laminate flooring is not waterproof, however the top wear layer is water resistant.

If you are interested in a placing an item in a closed patio or close to the outdoors, vinyl flooring will be the best option. Vinyl is 100% waterproof, constructed with fiberglass, reinforced, and reusable.
