Tips for laminate flooring at discount prices

Before you buy any laminate flooring at discount rates, check same basics while you are at the shop. Most often dealer might not allow you to return these discount laminate flooring as it has been reduced in pricing. So check beforehand and you should avoid any hassle.

Same manufacturer and same lot of discount laminate floor

Make sure you get any discount laminate flooring always from the same manufacturer. Even if both call it "oak laminate flooring" - the color and edge profile might be totally different. If possible also check that you buy the same lot. Most parquet manufacturers label their flooring with lot or production numbers. If you get your discount laminate flooring from the same lot you can avoid a lot of problems.

Check the quality of each package

If you get any kind of overstock or rest packages of discount laminate flooring, you should really have a good look at each pack. Sometimes it lies around many weeks in the shop and might get hit. So check if any edge of the laminate flooring has been damaged. In case you see a damaged panel, do think about whether you could still use it and perhaps ask for an additional discount.

Edge profile on different lots of discount laminate flooring

Therefore open boxes of the two different lots and test the fit of the joint, using one panel of each laminate flooring.

Surface and color test
