What brand of laminate flooring is considered the best for an active household. I'm leaning toward Wilsonart or Columbia brands.

DO NOT put laminate in a kitchen. I put it in about 2 years ago, just had to rip it all up. The icemaker valve behind the fridge was barely weeping, it was soaked up by the foam pad and ruined the floor. Did not know anything was wrong until the laminate joints started popping up.

I just discovered that water has leaked under the laminate flooring in my kitchen from a faulty valve under the kitchen sink. The laminate was installed over a old solid linoleum floor about 5 months ago. What repair options do I have to fix the floor after replacing the faulty valve?

try to find the same laminate that is installed and replace any damaged planks. if you can't find the same color then choose a simular one but it MUST be from the same manufacturer
