Drat no replies!! So I'll answer myself. I'm leaning toward Wilsonart Estate Plus at the moment. I've been conducting my own torture tests at home on the samples. Sitting in a chair and scraping the legs across the laminate --- also repeatedly pushing a 28oz can of tomatoes off the table onto the samples. Amazingly, they've held up to the scratch and dent tests. Pergo select-- perfect, Wilsonart estate plus - perfect, Wilsonart Classic -- no dents, barely scratched.
In fact, the Wilsonart Classic held up so well I was beginning to think why bother paying extra for the premium product. But then, my 3-year old peed her pants, and I remembered why I need the extra moisture resistance
I like the Wilsonart tap'n'lock joint. Seems tighter, more stable then the hinge type joint of the Pergo. Also, you can't even feel the joint when you run your hand across, but the Pergo you can feet it slightly and the samples move slightly as you handle them. Just doesn't seem as secure.
I think the hinge type joints might be a major pain getting under door frames/jams. We have 4 doors and 2 closets , so installation ease is a big issue. Am I missing something??
Any thoughts/experiences would be appreciated!!
