I had some laminate flooring delievered today at 4:15pm, I broke the plastic at each end of all the packs intending to leave as suggested for 24 hours before laying. I then decided I would check a packet and found that the boards (the one on the bottom in particular) was curved and when a spirit level was held against it there was an obvious bow in the middle. I unpacked the one pack at no later than 4:40pm.
I have rung the supplier, one centre did not pick up and the other said the laminate should not be in that condition.
I am obviously concerned I spent a fair amount of money on this flooring and have cleared my living room in readiness of laying it tomorrow which of course I now cannot! Is there any chance this problem will remedy itself overnight or should I demand that the whole lot is replaced? I darent open any other packs although if I lay my spirit level on the front of them they seem ok although this may not be the case if I unpacked them!
Im really frustrated, I was given a large amount of laminate flooring only last week that warped after I pulled it up, I believe that was due to it having origionally been laid on a non damp proofed concrete floor so of course i had to get rid of the lot. I am extremely disheartened that this is the second lot of laminate in such a short time to have had this problem but I know its nothing I have 'done' too it!
Any suggestions please.
