Hi, what is the price for a Pergo Laminate?


Stavros at January 1, 2008 02:22 PM




The prices are all over the board. I’ve seen it as low as $1.17 and as much as $3.23; it could go even higher. But the price can vary depending on what style you buy, what underlayment you choose, and who installs it. Check with your flooring store to see what they are charging. It is also advisable that you ask around and find people who have actually installed this flooring. This will let you figure out the prices of pergo laminate flooring in your locality. Alternatively, you can visit multiple flooring stores and get a quote from each of them. You can use one quote as a bargaining chip at the other and so on. This way, you surely will end up with the lowest quote with the help of some decent bargaining skills.

I am buying a house that has pergo flooring in the living room. I would prefer carpet there, but I am wondering if I can carefully remove the pergo and reuse it in the dining room? Do you know if this is possible? Thanks, Andrea

I’ve never known anybody who has tried to do that. I doubt that it would work, but I suppose it’s worth a shot if you can get it up intact. Installing pergo laminate flooring is usually done by professionals and hence it would be safe to assume that removing them will need their services as well. No matter how it goes, do let us know! May be the next customer will be lucky enough to get a clear answer from us in this regard.

I have a friend who installed Pergo flooring in her kitchen and dining room around 2 yrs. ago. She has a large dog, and now has floors that have been ruined, are buckled, etc. from where the dog had accidents. What about pets and this type of problem. I am considering Pergo, and I have a Maltese and one cat. Help!

Hi Pat,


When I had my laminate flooring installed in my kitchen the installer chose to add a layer of wood glue between planks. The glue helped keep the moisture from getting down into the planks. So, I would suggest having the floors glued to prevent the moisture damage if you feel accidents are probable. I would also recommend a rug in water prone areas. It is safe to say that pergo laminated flooring is one of the most durable flooring options out there if you install it right. May be you should go for the service of a professional who will do everything to ensure its durability.
