My wife bought about 1400 sq ft of glueless laminate flooring and wants me to install it throughout the house. BIG honey-do! There does not be a moisture problem with the existing carpeted floor...haven't noticed one before. I have no experience with this product or how to lay it other than to cut the stuff with a really fine blade and maintain a 1/4 inch gap around the room perimeters. The so-called retail sales "expert" at the big orange box store told her to just install the stuff over the existing carpet and not bother with a pad. She's really into the cut corners, house of straw construction gig; whereas, I am more into doing it right the first time brick house construction gig. I am questioning the wisdom of this. Anyone have any advice?
