About three years ago in a previous home, we had Formica laminate flooring installed. Within two weeks, a "AA" battery rolled off a kitchen counter and took a 0.5 inch chip out of the floor. :cry: It continued to chip from minor impacts.
I was informed by the flooring store we purchased the floor from that this was not uncommon and wasn't covered under the warranty. :x
My parents and other relatives never had such experiences with their laminates which were Pergo and Bruce. I don't know if Formica just wasn't a good brand or that my relatives were just lucky.
Incidentally we got tranferred soon after so I do not know whether it continued to be a problem.
Thank you in advance for all responses.
