The smaller two rooms up there are 10X12 and those rooms have had no issue. No idea why it was fine the first few winters and then became a problem. I asked around before I installed it if it would do OK under seasonal use. Some said yes some said no. It was gamble and I knew it going in. Im going to watch it this winter and next.
Laminate flooring is plastic. Plastic doesn't react well to extreme temp changes. I personally would not use it if it was a seasonal cottage. Wood is much more forgiving during temp changes. JMO.
