A few laminate questions

We are having our garage enclosed and thinking of having laminate put down as the flooring. However the garage has a slight downward angle from the front to the back. Probably 1+1/2 inches over 25 feet. Would have had a cap poured but was told they would have to tear up the original slab or it would be no good and that was too expensive. Regardless, I'm pretty sure that the floor is flat and im sure the floor man will check this. Will I be able to install a laminate floor on this? Would it best to install
the planks with the slope or across it? Also does anyone have any opinions or experiences, good or bad, with Ifloors.com? If one of my kids spills a liquid on theses floors and decices not to clean it up will this ruin the floor? Any answers would be truly appreciated as I need to make a decision about this soon.....Bob

as long as the floor is flat the slope wo'nt matter unless you try to something with wheels in there if you can live with the slope and it is flat then go ahead,as with anything else you get what you pay for and laminate is no different get you a laminate on either the high or middle end and it will cut down on future problems .I've heard different things from differnt people as far as moiture problems relating to laminates sounds to me like it varies from run to run as far as problems of any kind

Not Level? Not to worry, Not FLAT, WORRY! Of course all other installation parameters should be kept such as aclimation, moisture test, underlayment, and expansion gaps.
