Any Pergo Experts?


After 10 years of living with a dry but unfinished basement, we did it. Kids getting older need a find place to hand out.

We choose to use the low maintenance clean look of Pergo flooring. Just got hit with worst storms in Chicago history and of course our power has been out now for @28 hours. Water did sit on the floors and it is obvious the subflooring material is wet.

We just finished this basement three months ago.

Any suggestions?

What does the manufacturer say about it sitting in water?

It should say on some of the manufacturer materials you have.

My understanding is that Pergot is not much different than any other laminate flooring. The reason they are able to provide the warranty that they do is based on their business model where they allocate a certain amount of revenue to an insurance "fund" to cover any issues.

I would go over the guarantee/warranty provided by Pergot and see what they would cover should there be any problems with the florring after it dries.

Thanks, the Pergo 30 year manufacturers warranty does not cover damage due to water or moisture in the subfloor material.

I hate to say it, but I think you are screwed.

Call you insurance company.

Read your policy carefully before you call in a claim. Unless you have flood insurance you most likely are not covered unless you had a broken pipe.

Learn your lesson: remove it / stain or paint the concrete, use area rugs and runners. It will happen again one day.
