Pergo Presto


We purcharsed our Pergo Presto floor in 2001 and need more flooring for a remodeling job. How can we find the floor that fits what we currently have?

You probably won't. Flooring styles change constantly.

I agree with the first reply. Vendors change product constantly it's extremely frustrating. Try getting a contrasting color, use a transition strip, don't try to match the color, it just won't work. Stay with the same color "hue". If it has an orange tone, red tone, brown, etc. If the color is too close to the existing it will still look funny, too matchy matchy. The result will be dramatic and expensive looking. When I say the color will be too close, I mean light or dark or medium.

Thanks for your help. We only have a small area in the entrance to our kitchen that still needs flooring. Any suggestions on how to transition that- perhaps ceramic tile?

If you want to put tile in that small area, and that will butt up against the hard surface (pergo), use a transition strip....hard surface reducer if the two floors that meet are uneven. If they meet together at the same "level", use a t-molding transition strip. You can purchase these transition at any home improvement wherehouse store and they usually come in a pack called "fast-trim" meaning 4 different types of transitions in one pack, usually 47" long. Some may be...I think it's about 72" long. The same goes if you're going to use a new type/color of the pergo. You can also try running the planks of the pergo in the opposite direction, creating a pretty and interesting effect. Hope this helps you in some way. (by the way, yes, tile will look pretty too)

I have to add to my first reply...I meant to say, get the FLOOR color contrasting, not the transition strip, and of course match the color of the transition strip to your existing flooring. Sorry if I confused you.
