Question DetailsAsked on 11/12/2012

Hot water damaged a portion of kitchen laminate flooring, need to replace the ones that had glue/adhesive damaged & edges up.

Two fairly small areas of laminate flooring in kitchen and area leading
onto patio were damaged and need replacing. Hot water flooded this
area a few weeks ago. We have some of the flooring that was leftover
from installation. The edges on some strips have lost their adhesive and
turn up. Other strips have remained flat as before. Who in our area of
Orange county, California can we contact to do this work?

Great news, Pat.

You'll find more than 250 flooring experts around Placentia. Just log onto Angie's List and search for "flooring." Best of luck repairing that laminate.

Since it is already installed and you have spare materials for the repair you might as well repair it. However, it is worth noting laminate should never be used in wet areas (Kitchens, Bathrooms, Laundry Rooms, etc.). It is not a matter of if, but when, water damage will occur. I always feel sorry for customers who were ill-advised about this and have to go through a new flooring install sooner than expected. One in particular lasted less than 6 months. Insurance generally doesn't cover the damage. Tile or linoleum are still the best options in these areas and the new linoleum is leaps and bounds better than earlier versions with stone and wood look designs that are much more realistic.
