Heated Laminate Flooring Feasibility

Answered by Brendan ~ September 28, 2010 ~ No Comments

We're removing carpet from our Elmira, New York, home, which has cement flooring. I know that laminate flooring "floats" to allow for expanding and contracting, and that they also have a cushioning sheet under them. Is it feasible to have a heated floor under the top quality laminate flooring we plan to use?

I would say that it is feasible, however some laminate manufacturers may not recommend the use of under floor heating. It may void warranties on some types of flooring. To be safe, check with the flooring manufacturer. You may need to describe the exact type of heating system you plan to use. Most flooring manufacturers will have specific directions for installing their products over a heated floor. Good Luck!
