repair laminate flooring warping?

Answer:

Sorry, I have some bad news for you...your floor is ruined. I do not understand why this junky looking flooring is so popular...it is NOT a good floor choice, for water under it ruins the entire floor...the warping will continue over time, for there is NO way to get the water out from under it. This Pergo and that ilk is not only unsatisfactory as a floor, it is just plain old ugly...and it is expensive. They do not tell you about the danger of getting water under it when you buy it, they are remarkably quiet about the flooring failure. The partical board substrate is very sensitive to any water, swells and does NOT go back to its former self ever. It may be, if you are luck, that you can remove the warped boards and it will stop, but don't count on it happening. Usually, you have lost the floor once a flood happens...as in toilets, dishwasher failures, even spilled water that is not mopped up will ruin this junk. BAD, bad flooring choice. Good luck
I had professional install high quality laminated tile noy even 2 months later they say I have to replace and install sub flooring. They are saying the reason is moisture but it is in every room. The floor has lifted up to 4 inches in the living room it is getting worse everyday. I was told it was bad install and i moisture they should have used a barrier. What can i do?
Your screwed. You have to replace damaged pieces.
If the flooding was not your fault (faulty roof, bad plumbing) you won't have to pay. Otherwise...that sucks. Sorry!
Again I say its toast. Soggy mushy toast but toast none the less
