Waterproof in the sense that any water or spills can be cleaned easily quickly after it lands on the floor...yes.

Waterproof in the sense that flooding or water/spills are left on the floor unattended for a very long time (more than a few hours or more), then no.

So, if you decide to place this in a kitchen or bathroom area, it's possible, but be sure that it is routinely maintained and cleaned so that as little water is in contact with it.

Jerry - I had done the installation myself so there was no waiting ;) and I had never done a floor before (this floor went down fairly easily). However, if you need to have them do it, I imagine the availability and schedules of the installers would vary by store and by state.. Your best bet is to call your local store and inquire.

Good luck, and congrats if you decide to buy this floor - it's gorgeous in my opinion, and mine is down over 1 year now and it still looks awesome!!

Hello floorman and thank you for your question.

This TrafficMASTER Brazilian Cherry Laminate Flooring is 7 mm thick and made by Home Legend. The installation instructions are located here: http://www.homelegend.com/pdf/insta....

If you plan to adjoin two different products, you will need to ensure that the thicknesses are the same, that there is no attached underlayment, and that the installation methods are the same. It may be best to include a transition strip between the two styles of laminate flooring for safest results
.
Best wishes on your project.

One regular case = 36 packages = 1158 lb.

The size is a bit harder to identify
The small cases come
4 in a row, 4 height and 2 on top in the middle
So approx 17" height, 30" wide and 51" deep

TrafficMaster does offer commercial flooring. I would recommend going with their commercial flooring. I'm sure the warranty for their residential flooring would not cover a storefront application, but the commercial grade flooring, which is thicker and more durable, would be covered under their warranty.

I understand that you want to cover a ceramic tile floor with this type of laminate flooring.
It can be done, you just need to use quality underlayment.
I assume you are also aware of the fact that you will need to reposition the floor moulding.

Measure the width times length of the room you want to cover and convert those dimensions to feet (not inches). So if you have a square room at 12 feet by 12 feet, you'd need to cover 144 square feet. Then divide your total square footage by the amount of coverage per box, and that will give you the number of boxes you need of flooring. In this example with a calculated coverage area of 144 square feet, you'd need 6 boxes but get 7 just to be safe (you should always get some extra to allow for errors and also to keep on hand in case you need to replace a section of the floor later).

Note that if you have an odd shape room; e.g., it is not fully square or rectangular; I'd still figure the longest width times longest length and get that number of boxes. This may give you enough "extra" to allow for errors and keeping on hand, but I'd probably get an extra box anyway. It can never hurt to have the extra, but it could hurt if this ever becomes unavailable and you really need it later!

Multiply the length by the width to get the square footage of the room. (example: 21 x 17 = 357 square feet.) For 20% extra take times your total square feet by .20 for the total square footage of flooring that you will need. The flooring you are interested in will show how many square feet per box, divide this from your square footage for the total boxes of flooring needed.

Example
Room Measurements 21 x 17 = 357
Room Square foot plus 20% for waste 357 x .20 = 71.4
Total Square foot 357 + 71.4 = 428
Square foot per box 24.33 428 divided by 24.33 = 17.59 boxes
Rounded up purchase 18 boxes needed

It is usually recommended to add an additional 10% for waste material. If you are a DIYer and have never laid flooring before, I would recommend ordering 20% extra for learning mistakes.

If it's a droplet type of paint from painting a wall, for example, I just used my thumbnail to "pop" the spot off the floor. If it's an overspray type of situation from doing any spray painting indoors, a little soap and water or laminate cleaner with a scrungee sponge should work (it did for me).

Based on my research on caring for my own Brazilian Cherry laminate flooring, I would not recommend using it in any area that is susceptible to water or other prolonged moisture exposure. It seems quite durable and I haven't had occasion to have any "spills" yet, but the consensus is that all liquid must be wiped up as soon as it happens. If you really love this floor though (as do I - it looks GREAT) and want to take the risk, perhaps give it a try. It's a floating floor so there's no messy glue or "permanent" installation if it doesn't work out. If you have a limited budget, however, I'd probably look into other flooring options if I were you.
