    Laminate flooring

    I would like make a laminate flooring to my new housing project. (3-4 small house)
    How about our best friends TERMITES?? Do they eat laminate allso??? and how about other little creatures and mould etc...???
    Offcourse bathrooms and kitchen area is from tiles.
    How about Thailand really high humidity, does it harms laminate flooring a lot??
    Anyone have a good experience, please give a hand!!!

    Thanks

    The imported stuff is more expensive than using natural woods, also got to reckon the high humidity plus mopping it every day could cause it a lot of damage, we don't mop out floors in Europe everyday.

    ^ Agree with PP and without question.

    I have tried it in a number of areas in 5 houses and as soon as it comes in contact with water forget about it. I have ripped up all that shit and replaced it with ceramic tiles on every occassion.

    Never on the ground floor, maybe on higher floors but generally forget about it.
