Question

Pergo


I want to install pergo in my Living Room. Its on a hard wood subfloor.
Should I use the snap lock kind or the glue kind and which one looks the best once its down?
Installation tips would be great :confused:

Pergo


Both look the same when down Roger. You want to pick out the Pergo first before deciding weather or not to glue it.
Some Pergo you cannot glue, although I would recommend it if the manufacturer says it's o.k. It is cheap insurance. But it will make plank replacement that much harder, but the seam integrity with moisture is better.

high pressure laminate - great value.

only Pergo Select is high pressure, and it is more expensive

What kind of flooring does

armstrong have? I'd like the floating kind if possible, and my original floor is not level, does that make a difference?

Pergo


Pergo makes an installation video, you would be wise to get a copy. Most of the info applies to all floating flooring. Glue togethers are not covered.
It's about $15.00.

Pergo


These other guys know more about laminate products than I do and have given good advice. I have a question just to make sure about something. Is your existing hardwood over a wood subfloor?

Pergo


Roger: Being somewhat of a novice, I have experienced both glue and glueless snaplock. I would say the snaplock is much more preferrable. There is less of a chance to make a mistake and have that mistake accentuate as you progress with installation. A small misalignment on one end can be a big misalignment on the other end. I did not have this problem with glueless snap lock.

Pergo


Guys ... Just a quick note .. I installed 800 sq ft of Pergo Presto from Home Depot in my Kitchen and Family Room. It is crap!!!! it looks nice .. but end seams will randomly open up .. you can get your fingernail in the gap and the corners and edges of the ends will chip off . I have about a dozen of these .... a lot of money($2800) for a product that does this. A local flooring guy told me that Home Depot sells a pergo product that is inferior to that which you can buy at a flooring store ...... I dont know about this .. but no way would I use it again ....

Somewhat true.
The same type Pergo can be found at a flooring store under another name.
But the higher end stuff is ONLY at the flooring stores. Not at HD.
