Is Pergo Flooring Right for Your Home?

With all the choices of floor coverings available today, how do you determine if Pergo flooring is the right one for your home?

Then it is time to look into affordable home laminate flooring. Woodhaven MI residents have made the decision to install Pergo laminate flooring and they have never looked back.

Examine the Ways Laminate Flooring Wins over Other Surfaces

Pergo flooring is the original home laminate flooring first introduced to the market 30 years ago and remains the best-selling anti-microbial, anti-static surface to this day. More homeowners are realizing the positive health effects of removing their wall-to-wall carpeting and replacing it with home laminate flooring. The trend reveals a growing desire for:

  • Cleaner indoor air quality
  • Easier maintenance and upkeep
  • Long lasting durability
  • The overall aesthetic appeal

The Distinguishing Elements of Pergo Flooring

Multiple layers of synthetic flooring materials such as fiber board and melamine resin are fused in a lamination process to simulate wood, stone or tile using a photographic layer protected by a clear coating. The ScrathGuard Advanced Technology along with the PermaMax™ wear layer applied to the surfaces fight scuffs and prevents scratches.

The unique appearance of Pergo laminate flooring is due to the color, pattern and texturing detail offering an enormous variety of styles to suit every desire. The planks are similar to engineered wood using photo-realism making them indistinguishable from the real materials. This is also what makes laminate so much more reasonable on the budget. Prices can range from $1 to $7 per square foot. Obtaining the help of professional floor layers, this can add from $2 to $5 per square foot but is well worth the extra.

Easy Installation Makes Quick Work of Your Transformation

Installation is simpler than most people think. It is referred to as a floating floor as it goes right over existing surfaces without need of adhering to the underlayment. This is what produces moisture resistant and sound-reducing properties. The tongue and groove planks are designed to click together perfectly to create a fit that still breathes, which means it is allowed to expand and contract without obstruction from existing immovable walls.

The look of luxury with the ease of maintenance and comfort engineered into home laminate flooring is highly achievable within most budgets. While it is an attractive project for many do-it-yourself enthusiasts, it can be tricky when over-estimating skills related to getting around corners and door jams. With the help of a reputable kitchen and bath re-modeler, Woodhaven MI residents have been happily introduced to the opulence of simulated hardwood, stone or tile floor coverings without the strains of the specialized upkeeping efforts.
