    Hi guys,

    I was just at a flooring shop (looking at tiles) and a came across a new product they had for laminate flooring. The laminate joins have been made water resistant using a water repellent HydroSeal coating.

    One of the main concerns I had with laminate flooring , especially when you have pets and young kids, was the water issue, which seems to be addressed now.

    What s your views?

    BTW.. the product is from Quick-step and is about $65 sqm.

    Cheers,
    Robbie

    Agreed.. the plan it to possibly replace carpet for laminate and keep the existing tiled areas(kitchen, dunning, bathrooms) tiled
