I am able to get a really good deal on some laminant flooring, but it is
only 6mm thick..
I really know nothing about this stuff, hence the reason for posting here.
Hoping someone could help me out a bit..
I can get the 6mm stuff for $0.89 (Canadian) per foot,
or the 7mm stuff for $1.01(Canadian) per foot
I know that these are really good prices, and thats why I want to go ahead
and do the basement floor.
But what I need to know is:
1.) Is the 6mm or 7mm stuff thick enough? or should I really go with the
more expensive stuff?
I noticed that the tongue and groove are pretty thin on the cheaper stuff,
will it show any lines/grooves when the floor is done?
Again it will be used in my basement on concrete floor which is pretty level
2.) What kind of foam underlay do I get? any thickness in particular?
3.) Do I absolutely need to vapour barrier the floor, or is that an option?
and what are the advantages to this?
Note: I will not be putting this on a sub-floor. It will be directly on the
Any help greatly appreciated.
