Bertha Walsh. Laminate Flooring. July 14th , 2018.
Let me relate a true story to illustrate the results of these mistaken ideas. The flooring contractor working at the house I was renting was using a nice DeWalt bench-top table saw, with a standard DeWalt blade on it. It might have been the original, an exact replacement or maybe a step up in tooth count, but apparently he thought a DeWalt saw needs a DeWalt blade. A crazy idea, when there are so many other aftermarket brands that are a lot better.
Laminate flooring is definitely a lot more durable than most other types flooring; laminate really could be considered the toughest of floors. Of course, there are still some issues with even laminate floors, and warping is the main one. So, let's look at warping as it pertains to laminate. A laminated floor that develops a look of something coming from under the house are being affected by peaking. The effect is a bit disturbing. Many people assume that water has somehow gotten under their laminate floor, or that their foundation is cracked, but this is very rarely the case.

You can cut laminate flooring with table saw, but in my opinion the cleanest and easiest option is using a jigsaw blade with teeth pointing down. Use it together with an old 5 gallon bucket and cut the flooring right over it, this way the saw dust will fall into the bucket- no mess equals easy clean up. One more benefit of using jigsaw- there will be no chipping on the top surface.
To choose the best flooring, it is good to look for the best design and textured product. There are many different kinds of designs for laminate, so look for one that you like. Usually, laminate flooring will be made to look as if it is made up of planks, when it is actually cut up into sections of a larger piece.
