Floating floor panels

Recommended Posts

There a type of floating floor panel that has a green colored substrate. Doesn't this substrate consist of hardboard or MDF? If so, isn't it moisture intolerant? Yesterday's inspection of a 12 year old HUD code home had it installed in the kitchen, both baths and the laundry rooms where water can splash. It's a DIY and I'm leaning towards reporting that it doesn't belong in those rooms.

What's the difference between being at the front door where snow can melt on it? While I don't think it's great idea to be in bathrooms or anyplace where great amount of water can get to it...I don't think it's wrong on every application like those. I've spilled countless glasses of water on my pergo (damn laptop cord), and i just wipe it up. 5 years later, still looks new.

But the HUD thing might throw a monkey wrench into things.
