I'm the least handy person here . . .


I joined today because I have a heartwrenching problem with my Pergo flooring. (a bit melodramatic, huh ) I posted it on the flooring board already but thought I'd come over here to introduce myself.

My husband and I are terrible with home improvements and even worse with home repairs. Our typical approach to a problem is to ignore it in hopes that it will go away . . . and then when it doesn't (of course), we break down and call a repair person. Very expensive.

But hey, we may get around to painting someday.

Maybe if I read enough on this forum I will get up the courage to be a DIYer!

Thank you! I just may share a recipe, as cooking/baking happens to be one of the things I actually do pretty well!

I can probably give you a run for your money on being the least handy person here, lol. I've never been good at doing crafty stuff.
I'm just starting here too, so welcome!

so what is the problem with the pergo floor? i had a problem with the pergo that was installed in the house we bought. when i went to pull it up it was all glued together so i couldnt reuse it. i remember the early pergo had to be glued before they had the click lock.
