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

Wooden Flooring and Laminate Floors Add a Natural Touch

Wooden Flooring and Laminate Floors Add a Natural Touch

Wooden flooring has many benefits over the use of carpets. Laying a wooden floor can set your home apart from the rest and increase its value if you come to sell the house. Each floorboard is unique making the effect of a wooden floor very attractive. Unlike carpets, wooden flooring does not trap dust and mites and is therefore highly recommended for allergy suffers. Wooden flooring is extremely hard wearing and will last considerably longer than even the highest quality carpets available. It is easy to keep clean and is stain resistant to food and drink. Any spillages can simply be soaked up and wooden flooring can be easily swept to remove dust and solid matter.

Wooden flooring is widely available from all good

DanInJersey says about his Trafficmaster Legacy Oak Natural Flooring:
Contrary to the last two reviews, I don’t have much bad to say about this flooring. The first layer was a HUGE pain, and we struggled to get it to link together… until we actually read the instructions and saw that we needed an installation kit.
Once we got that, it was smooth sailing. We’ve had the floor down a month with 2 50-75lb dogs and there’s not a scratch on it. It also happens to look very nice. I recommend you buy it in the store so that ensure the boxes you get are undamaged.
