  4. Is there anyway to fix a floor that has been faded either from water damage or cleaners? this laminated wood floor is in a bathroom & the damage is in front of a shower stall.

  5. Dear Sir or Madam,

    I am wondering if your laminate flooring has been treated with sealer on the edges that lock together to avoid damage of water. I have found that some of the types of laminate flooring have been “dipped” to seal the locking edges in case of water and was wondering about your floors. I have received my samples and have been very impressed with them but need to know this info prior to ordering. Thank you.
