Whether laminate flooring can be used outdoors has become a common question frequently asked by laminate flooring consumers. The answer is NO. Laminate flooring is not intended for outdoor use and all the laminates are made strictly for indoor use. So we can’t use laminate flooring outdoors? YES.
- Weather Conditions
You can’t 100% make sure what the weather will be like tomorrow even though you have seen the weather forecast. If it’s rainy, snowy or others except sunny, your laminate flooring may be destroyed by the large moisture. Although there are waterproof laminate flooring they are just produced to resist usual water not to be kept long “in water”.
- Sunlight Conditions
Even if it’s sunny outside, long time shining from strong sunlight will also make your floor loose original color. Black laminate flooring will easily turn grey under sunshine day by day. So if you want your floors to keep “fresh as before”, try to protect them from harsh sunlight.
