Heated Laminate Floors

Considering the Installation of a Radiant Heated Laminate Floor?

Laminate flooring is a versatile type of flooring that is often used in radiant floor heating systems. Available in a variety of attractive patterns, laminate flooring can closely resemble the beauty of hardwood floors. Although laminate flooring looks very similar to hardwood flooring, there is actually no solid wood used in its construction. Rather, laminate floors are made up of several materials bonded together under high pressure.

Heated kitchen floor with laminate flooring.Most laminate flooring consists of a moisture resistant layer under a layer of high density fiberboard (HDF), and topped with a high-quality photographic image of natural wood flooring. The surface is then finished with a hard, clear coating made from special resin-coated cellulose that protects the floor's surface. Laminate floors are generally very durable, and the dense center core has very good stability, so the flooring can safely be installed over a radiant floor heating system. However, it is always a good idea to check with the laminate flooring manufacturer prior to making any purchases for a heated floor system.
