I have laminate flooring in my office. Should I be having a pad under the chair that is on casters?
My experience with laminate is that it's really tough, so I wouldn't. We have inexpensive laminate on our 3 season porch and a rolling chair that I work from, no issues at all.
Just keep any grit/gravel swept up, should it come in on shoes. Most of the clear office pads are for over carpet, and have sharp points to grip, not good. If your chair rolled too easily for you if the floor was slick, then a large low nap carpet mat could help that issue.
At the Pergo website they recommend soft wheels for laminate floors. If you have a different brand you might want to check their site. I suspect they'll all have similar recommendations.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
Not a problem in my experience. I have cheap Costco laminate in my study and a rolling chair that I am sitting on. I see no wear. As noted above most of those chair pads are made for carpet and would not work well on a smooth hard surface.
