I had laminate wood flooring installed over a cement slab in my home 4 years ago. I have not had any problems until recently. I noticed in my home office in front of my desk where two short ends of the planks come together, that they are beginning to curl up, my shoe hooked on it and when I tap on it, it sounds like air underneath. I have a desk chair with casters, would that be making it start to come apart? Will it make the laminate peel off? I was thinking about getting a chair mat to cover that area and the area rolled on. Do you think putting a plastic mat over the laminate, which is over a concrete slab would prevent moisture from escaping and cause more problems? Before you ask, it was a professional that installed my floor and they installed it with underlayment. Suggestions on what is happening with the floor and if the mat would help or make things worse. Thank you for your time and your informative blog.

Hi Debbie, thanks for reaching out. It is hard to say exactly what is going on without seeing the flooring first hand, but it sounds like your flooring may be buckling at the joints. Laminate flooring is a floating floor, and it contracts and expands with temperature changes. It is possible that your installer did not leave an expansion gap around the perimeter of your room, and the planks do not have enough space to expand. You can send photos to [email protected] and we can try to help you diagnose the issue further and find a solution.

I have purchased LVP click n lock. 5.75in x35.75in x3.2mm and it’s going over concrete floor. Is it ok if I use pergo 3mm underlayment or should I use something smaller? Its replacing carpet In my house if that helps. Thank you

Hi Emanuel, thanks for the question. You should not use a laminate underlayment with LVT. It adds too much cushion and can compromise the joint integrity. You can look into LVT specific underlayments that are 1.5mm or less. We have a few options here you could use: https://www.bestlaminate.com/bestlaminate-pro-line-premium-lvt-underlayment-15mm-100sf/ and https://www.bestlaminate.com/floor-muffler-lvt-ultraseal-1mm-underlayment/
