Pergo is a Swedish flooring product company noted primarily for its laminate flooring products. Pergo invented laminate flooring in the 1970s and began selling laminate flooring in the United States in 1994 under the leadership of then-president Lars von Kantzow. Even though there are many manufacturers of laminate flooring products today, many people refer to all laminate flooring as "pergo". In addition to its laminate products, Pergo introduced hardwood products into the U.S. market beginning in 2004 and will introduce similar hardwood products in Europe in 2007.

What are the advantages of Pergo flooring?

There are a couple of advantages of Pergo flooring. First of all, please understand that Pergo (a registered trademark) is a laminate, not an engineered wood or a hardwood. A lot of the Pergo line, although not ALL of it, is manufactured with the foam underlayment already on the bottom of each plank. With Laminate flooring, you need to have a 6 mil polyethelene moisture barrier, as well as a foam underlayment. The laminate floor is installed using the "floating" method. Just because Pergo has the foam underlayment attached to the planks, doesn't mean that you don't need the moisture barrier. If installed on concrete, it's best to test the moisture content of the concrete prior to installing the Pergo, as well as any other type of flooring. Especially, if installing below grade. Laminate flooring does not do well in moist areas, so be sure to read the manufacturer's instructions carefully. Another advantage to Pergo is it's price. You can obtain a "wood" look with this product, although you won't be fooling anyone. It will not hold up as well as engineered or hardwood, but it's considerably much cheaper. The key word there is "cheaper". In all meanings of the word. With all due respect, and no disrespect intended to the manufacturer and owners of Pergo or any other laminate floor. It is not, however, the cheapest and/or least expensive of laminate floors on the market. If this hasn't answered your question, please redefine your question so that I may try and provide the particular answere you're looking for. Advantages of Pergo over...?
