I few of my laminate board were wet for an extended time due to a pipe leak. They have become swollen with moisture. Is there any way to dry them out without having to go buy more?

No. Once moisture has seeped into a laminate board and the board has swollen it will not return to the original configuration after being dried out. Unfortunately, moisture is the greatest enemy of this product. It is always a good practice when purchasing this type of flooring to purchase a little extra in case an accident occurs.

I wish I would've thought to purchase extra for these kinda of problems.  Looks like I am out of luck as I can't find a match.  Thanks anyways.
