Help! I have purchased Click Vinyl Flooring to be placed in my three season cottage, however I contacted the manufacturer and he advised me that due to the cold and heat, it will contract and expand and will separate around the seams. It will be a floating floor.
Can someone please let me know if this is true or is the manufacturer just protecting themselves?
A few years ago I was told laminate wasn't the best for a cottage also and we have not had any issues with the flooring. I worry the vinyl will crack.
I recently priced out a job for a 3 season room and the customer wanted the same thing. I declined to use click flooring "just in case."
While I do not have any hard facts, in my experience, unless it is extremely high quality (and thus expensive), there is a fairly good chance that there will be some shifting and popping and the like. The Winnipeg area can have some significant extremes in temperature so I would be very wary. If you can return the flooring, I would encourage it. Talk to the specialists and ask what they would recommend for your purposes (make sure you get some kind of documentation "just in case."
Be sure to let us know how things turned out on this project.
