Laminate Floor Repair
by: Anthony

You will need someone else to repair your floors. I don't think the installers you used knew what they were doing. As far as the BBB, I don't think they make people fix their bad work. I think they just log complaints against them.

I have repaired my share of other peoples bad work. What you will most likely need is more of this laminate as the planks around the doors will need to be re-cut, and there is the possibility that some planks may be damaged when taken up.

The other issue could be whether you can re-use the transitions in the doorways. If not you will need more of those.

Finding someone who knows what they are doing can be hard. A lot of installers give a good talk but can't back up what they say. Do as much research as you can, call local flooring stores and ask if they have any installers that know what they are doing. Or look online for installers in your area.

Hope this helps some.

That makes sense to me
by: Tim

That is what I thought. I figured the jams needed to be cut to allow for expansion. I guess that is why the company won't come out here to repair it. It is going to take a lot of time for them to remove the laminate, cut out the 4 jams and then reinstall the flooring. So what do I do now? Should I get another company to do the work or get the BBB involved?
Thank you for confirming my thoughts on the jams.
