Pergo Presto


OK, I just bought 26 boxes of Pergo Presto at Home Depot. What is the scoop on this product as I have read in other places that seams (gaps) appear after a short period of time. Also it appears that Home Depot is not stocking much Pergo anymore either, although they had plenty of the color we wanted. I would really like to know other experiences with Pergo Presto before I spend the time to install 24 boxes of it. Thanks.

I talked with the rep in California during convention.
Lots of problems with snap crackle pop sounds. tounges were breaking, and large gaps appeared.
Not in ALL cases, but enough to convince them it may not be wise to carry it anymore.

I do know however, that in most (if not all) cases, they refunded the customers.

Thanks for the info. By the way, vacationed in Alaska about six years ago...beautiful state - not to be political but hopefully it stays that way for a long time.

Also an installation question. I am planning to install this product over a vinyl sheet floor. Is it best to painfully remove the floor or can I just repair some areas that have lifted and install the underlayment and laminate over the vinyl? Thanks.

diyfred,

A question you should be asking yourself is "Why did the vinyl lift to begin with?" Just something to think about.

The vinyl that lifted is in front of a "builder's special" patio door that has leaked since it was new and is to be replaced in a couple of weeks. The replacement door installation includes replacing any damaged subfloor. I was planning to just reglue the vinyl onto the new subfloor and lay the new laminate over the vinyl. However, if experienced people believe that removing the old vinyl floor is a good idea - I'll do that. Also I already have Pergo sealant material to place between the new patio door threshold and the laminate.

I was never one for heaping flooring on top of flooring but some will say it's OK. In my thinking if the vinyl is somewhat blistered from the leak then it may not go back down suitably. My next question would be if the subfloor requires replacement in that area then that pretty-much says goodbye to the vinyl anyway.

Iffin' it wur me I'd be takin' out the vinyl anyway.

H-m-m-m-m-m, guess that really wasn't a question afterall!

It looks great and is easy to clean. There are a ferw small gaps showing in one area where the floor was less even, but I can live with it. Plus the gaps are hard to see with all of the muddy paw prints all over the place! Overall, I'm very happy with it, but it's only been 6 months.

Yes, this laminate is to be installed in a kitchen. I already have material (Pergo sealant) for the areas that could come into contact with water and the exterior door threshold.

Can you glue the flooring as you snap it together to stop from sepperating

yes. my house had this exact thing done before i tore it up to install plank hickory. a little glue on the tongue at install made a very tight seam up. the previous owner installed the pergo in 2002. i ripped it out 2 months ago. there were no seams what so ever in the install. very very hard stuff too. actually harder to scratch than the hickory i put down.
