Help! My Flooring has been Discontinued!

It never fails.  You get home from work to find that your refrigerator has leaked all over your  laminate flooring and you now have to replace some damaged planks.  You did not have any extra left over from your installation and when you call your flooring company you hear those words than no one wants to hear… Your flooring has been discontinued.  What do you do now?

Don’t Freak Out

All hope is not lost.  First thing you need to do is to find your paperwork with the manufacturer’s name, the flooring color name and model number on it.  Next, you are going to hit the internet.  Type in all of the information that you have available.  For example:  Quick Step Quadra, UF1276, Painted Desert.  Carefully sort out the results and start checking stores for the flooring that you need.  Be sure to keep a notepad close by as one store may have 1 box available but you need 4 boxes.  You may need to buy from several different sources to get the amount that you need for your repair.   Also, don’t be afraid to check eBay, Amazon and Craigslist as sometimes homeowners will post extra boxes of flooring that they no longer need.   If you are lucky enough to find a store that has several boxes left in stock, consider buying a few extra boxes so that you will have it available in the event that you would ever need it again. At Bestlaminate, we occasionally have flooring that is discontinued leftover for really great prices in our Remnants section!

Worst Case Scenario

Now lets look at the worst case scenario.  You cannot find a single box on the entire internet.  What now?  Do you have the flooring installed in any closets, a pantry or maybe an extra bedroom? You can pull the flooring from these areas to replace the damaged flooring in the main area of your home.  By pulling from another area you can preserve the main living space and then focus on a solution for that closet or bedroom.  So let’s say that you have this flooring in a closet.  You can remove that material, fix your damaged area and then find a different laminate or a loose lay vinyl that you can use to quickly fix the smaller problem.  Do you need more flooring for your repair than the closet can offer you?  Pull from an extra bedroom and replace that with a laminate that either compliments it or is opposite of what you have in the other areas of you home.  Don’t try to get an exact match as it will become more noticeable and end up looking terrible.  Do something totally different with that space and make it look like it belongs in there and that you chose to decorate it that way.  You will be very happy with the results.

      Hi Angela, thanks for reaching out. This is not a product we have in our warehouse. Our best recommendation would be to check Craigslist or Ebay to see if anyone is selling the type of flooring you need.

  11. I had my kitchen remodeled and several pieces of the laminate flooring were damaged. Now my problem is that the new planks that were installed are free of any dirt or cleaning products so they stand out. I’m annoyed, to say the least, because the company that installed the cabinets, screwed up but are not taking responsibility for their errors. Is there always going to be a difference in the new and old pieces? If not, is there any way to hurry up the process of “aging” the new planks?

    • Ashley Tolfo

      Hi Jill – I am wondering what you mean by “free of any dirt or cleaning products”. What type of cleaning products are you using on your floors? Some cleaners can cause a build up or waxy substance on your laminate, which will trap dirt and scratches making it appear that your laminate has “aged”, when really there is a top-coat left by cleaner residue.

      We would recommend trying to clean away that top coat, so your floor matches the new planks rather than the other way around. Try mopping with a solution of 1 tablespoon of Dawn dish soap + 1/4 cup of vinegar for every 1 gallon of warm water. Dampen, do not saturate, your mop and go over your entire room where the planks are. Repeat as needed until you notice a difference. This should clean up cleaner residue!

  12. Trying to locate 2-3 boxes of Wilsonart Estate Plus Plank Hawaiian Bamboo laminate…do not have any model numbers to share…any chance you could help us location this?

    P.S. I have three pieces left, if that would help

    • Ashley Tolfo

      Hi Peter – Unfortunately, we do not stock this flooring. We would recommend contacting Wilsonart to see if they have an outlet store or any remnant boxes available. Alternatively, you can see if anyone is selling any boxes on eBay, Craigslist, or other person-to-person selling platforms.

      Depending on how many boxes you need, you could send us your remnant planks so we could try to find a color match from our own inventory. You would then use a transition piece to hide the difference. Give us a call at 800-520-0961 or email us at support@bestlaminate.com so we can assist you further.

  17. I need several boxes of Pergo Rustic Chestnut 8mm Laminate or as close as I can get . I tried Lowes were I bought my flooring from . No uses , Ebay . Home Depot . Amazon . Any other ideas ?

    • Ashley Tolfo

      Sorry to hear you’re having such a difficult time finding the floor you need, Evelyn. With discontinued floors, it’s best to try social selling platforms such as eBay or Craigslist. Since the manufacturer of the floor is no longer making this floor, the best chance of finding the floor you need will be from people who have leftover boxes from an old project who no longer need it. Hopefully you’re able to have some luck!

  18. I am desperate to locate replacement Laminate flooring for part of my home!
    I am looking for –

    Pergo Max 7.61-in W x 3.96-ft L Burnished Fruitwood Wood Plank Laminate Flooring

    Item # 39489 Model # LF000198

    I hope you can help!
    Thank you.

    • Ashley Tolfo

      Hi Bill – Unfortunately, we do not carry this exact floor. Depending on how much you need to replace, you could consider purchasing a floor that looks very similar and re-finishing the damaged room with a new floor. You can send us pictures of your flooring to support@bestlaminate.com and we can do our best to find a suitable blend. You can then use a transition molding, such as a t-molding in a doorway to mask the difference in the flooring.

      If you are set on looking for the exact flooring, however. We would recommend searching eBay or other community selling platforms to see if there is someone trying to sell off extra boxes they might have left over from a previous project. Good luck and let us know if we can help you!
