  • Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product, fused together with a lamination process. Laminate flooring simulates wood (or stone, in some cases) with a photographic applique layer under a clear protective layer.

  • Relatively new to North America, laminates have a dense fiberboard core with a paper pattern layer sealed under high pressure both top and bottom with a plastic-like substance. Sold as planks and panels in wood, stone, tile and other looks.

  • hard surface flooring with a fibreboard core and melamine wear layer - available in blocks, planks, and squares.

  • Moisture generally refers to the presence of water, often in trace amounts.

  • (moist) damp: slightly wet; "clothes damp with perspiration"; "a moist breeze"; "eyes moist with tears"

  • Water or other liquid diffused in a small quantity as vapor, within a solid, or condensed on a surface

  • wetness caused by water; "drops of wet gleamed on the window"

Moisture Control Handbook: Principles and Practices for Residential and Small Commercial Buildings

Moisture Control Handbook: Principles and Practices for Residential and Small Commercial Buildings

In the climate-controlled buildings of today, moisture problems affect not only the useable life expectancy of the structure, but the comfort and health of the occupants. This reference is the first to apply up-to-date moisture control and treatment techniques in a problem/solution format. Opening with an introductory explanation of the nature and causes of mold, mildew, and condensation, the book gives specific advice on heated, cooled, and combination environments, plus a short course in the dynamics of moisture movement within buildings. Other invaluable coverage includes:
* clear, detailed recommended practices for all United States climates
* practices for cooling as well as heating climates (often, heating climate solutions are applied in cooling climates, where problems and solutions are completely different)
* an overall, systematic view of moisture problems--including how mechanical systems and occupant lifestyles can create and also resolve moisture problems
* actual case studies of buildings with moisture problems that illustrate the principles and practices presented in the book
This detailed, no-nonsense exploration of moisture cause and effect--as well as its protection and remediation--will expand readers' knowledge on this crucial subject. Moisture Control Handbook will be welcomed by building contractors, architects, mechanical engineers, building science researchers, building product manufacturers, homeowners, and small commercial building owners.

The beginning of the laminate-laying

The beginning of the laminate-laying

The black plastic is the moisture barrier that must be put down if you have a concrete slab. The pieces of laminate snap together, and then you use a tapping block to tighten them up. Because the pieces lock on the ends and the sides, you should put together an entire row long-ways, tap them into each other, and then fit the entire length of the row onto the row before, tapping everything in tightly.
