Should I seal joints on my laminate floor?

Should I seal joints on my laminate floor?Traffic Master Baltic Oak laminate flooring
Great question John. Most joints on laminate floors do not need to be sealed. The way they are designed keeps the floors tightly together so there is no worry about sealing the laminate. We do like to take extra precaution when installing laminate flooring in moist places such as bathrooms and kitchens.

Silicon sealant should be used in expansion zones in bathrooms, near kitchen sinks, dishwashers and refrigerators with ice makers. If there is going to be expansion due to excess moisture, then using a silicone sealer such as the Shaw Silicone Sealant is a good idea.

The Shaw Color Sealant can be matched to your laminate flooring and if done right will be tough to be seen. If you install your floor correctly you will have many years of happy walking.

Here is what Shaw’s laminate sealant says:

  • Seals joints which may be vulnerable to moisture
  • Finishes expansion space around door facings or any vertical surface
  • Prevents water penetration underneath planks in wet areas
  • Sealant will not affect expansion of the Hardsurface flooring
