    One of the bedrooms has quite a few 'chips' in a certain area of the laminate flooring. They're in the same sort of area but spread out quite a bit. As far as I am aware nobody has hit it with a chisel :rotfl: and just been subject to daily usage (Walking on it!).

    Why are these chips appearing :confused:

    Hi Tea,

    You haven't got wimmin' walking over it in their stilleto's have you?

    Also, are the chips on the edges of the strips or in the middle?

    I would expect it is from when you get those annoying tiny stones stuck in your shoes.

    Mr T,

    Have you laid the underlay? Did you clean the floor properly before laying the laminate? It could be that there is grit/dirt/sticky-up bits underneath the areas you mention that is causing some pressure through the laminated sheet, end result being it "pops" the top laminated layer off. If the floor is uneven it might be causing the laminate to flex? Failing that it might be a defect in the laminate. Further investigation looks necessary. best of luck.
