    The floor presumably was floating, meaning not nailed or glued to the subfloor (otherwise it wouldn't be in such good shape). Do the sides and edges have a locking mechanism or just a plain tongue and grove? Most of the later laminates are of a composite with just the thin laminated wood look on top. These do fairly well in storage. Some are engineered and the meat of the planks are more like plywood. These tend to warp more.

    Don't know the exact composition of the floor at the moment. You were right about it being a floating floor. Just plain tongue and groove. Whole floor came off in less than an hour.
