I think Pergo is probably fairly decent, but there are always going to be cases where people have issues with it due to poor installation and/or a bad batch. I wouldn't worry about it too much DM. Hope it endures for you. <br><br>
The job was difficult mostly because we were remodeling on a 22 year old home -- not a single straight line in the place. The slab was in pretty good shape after removal of the pre-existing tile, but they had to float sections to get it level. We opted to remove all baseboards and put in a "fry molding", which is a 1-1/2" metal reveal, so all the walls had to be cut on the bottom and retextured, that makes the walls look like they're floating. It's a detail that was used in the 50's modernist homes and is becoming popular again. All the bamboo edges had to be perfect with room enough for expansion without a baseboard to hide things. <br><br>The installation also began in the large living room and worked back towards the kitchen, den and entry where there is a large interior portion, kind of like a doughnut where they had to have the planks meet up perfectly 20' later on the back side.... with no walls perfectly square it was a cause for celebration when the moment arrived and everything lined up perfectly. That required keeping things perfectly in line without any drift. These guys did a great job.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
