I'm Robbo The Llama And I'm An Utter Moron

Not long ago I was fool enough to idly speculate within earshot of the Missus that some Pergo on the floor of the little study in our basement, formerly known as Robbo's Fortress of Solitude, might look nice. (The current flooring consists of some hideous vinyl tiling which is supposed to resemble brick. It doesn't come close.)

I've just now learned that my Thanksgiving vacation is going to be quite a bit different than I had imagined it would be.......

You should know by now that is is not safe to think such things in her presence let alone speak them.

Basement? You should be aware that if there is the slightest possibility of moisture getting in under the flooring then no wood laminate product is suitable for that area.

Spills on top, mopped up quickly: not a problem.

Soak the substrate from underneath: big problem.

Thankee, Mouse. That would be a useful out except that I'm honor-bound to admit that it is an extremely dry area. Our house sits on a hilside and this room is on the lee side. Never seen a hint of moisture in it all these years.
