"Company does not stand behind product"
Walk on this floor barefooted and you will leave footprints or smudges every place you stepped. We bought because of advertisement about being scratch resistant to dog claws, so we think this must be a great product for dogs to live on. Wrong, if a dog has an accident (which even older trained dogs do)and its cleaned up right away, the urine will swell the floor at any seam it comes in contact with. Pergo would not honor any warranty, because the "lifetime warranty" does not include manufacturers defects, only fading and scratching. Pergo came and looked at floor and said it was not installed incorrectly, so there was no warranty. They noted multiply places that we had supposedly chipped the corners, but they were in areas we don't even use in our house. Corners had to be chipped when installers put it in. I had it install by the company I purchased the flooring from so Pergo could not say I screwed up on how it was put in. Didn't matter. The laminate that I put in my basement that cost $0.49 sqft has held up better than this very expensive stuff. You will be so sorry if you put this in your home.

"Warranty - false"
I bought pergo flooring from Lowes. The flooring was defective. They do not back up their product. The flooring is separating, peeling off. I have had different contractors replacing carpet in my office and bedroom. They all immediately comment on how the flooring in the front part of the house is defective. Don't believe their warranty!

"Do not buy!"
Just after installation of our entire downstairs we could sense "bubbles" or areas of sponginess. Had the folks from Lowes and their "professional" installers come out and they initially admitted this was not good. Subsequent discussions led to the opinion that it was within tolerance (they couldn't get a large pen underneath a level) and they couldn't help with the problem. It feels like you are walking on an inner tube in places. This product might work for a very small area, but don't do a large room and God forbid doing a whole house. Should have gone with hardwood to begin with. Do Not Buy.

The materials are substandard. The corners peel off and crack, the surface easily scratches. Pergo's warranty is bad; it has taken a year of telephone calls, contractor visits, Pergo rep reviews, and discussions with lawyers to finally resolve the matter. Their lifetime warranty apparently means "a lifetime of appeals". I would look elsewhere for flooring; Pergo is a very poor solution. We have filed a case with the federal consumer protection agency.

"Pergo Flooring--Never Again"
Flooring looked beautiful in the beginning. After some time, we noticed chipped areas in one office (bedroom) in our home. We have Pergo in three bedrooms and the entire hall. The hall is one year older than the office in question and has no damage. The office with damage has several small areas of delamination. Pergo sent an inspector who said we had too much moisture and were using metal/plastic casters on office chairs. Their own inspector wrote in his report that all chairs had rubber casters. Pergo chooses to ignore this. Pergo insists we have a moisture problem; therefore, they do not have to honor their warranty, which apparently is 6 months, if any months at all. Nevermind, we have their 30 year piece of worthless paper stating that's how long the warranty is. We will never use Lowe's again, and we will never purchase another Pergo floor.

"What a mess"
The only reason I did not put extremely unsatisfied was because there was no box to check. The refrigerator ice maker line leaked in the middle of the night and put water on my floor. The Pergo was a mess afterwards. Very disgusting. It stayed so swollen that I had to remove the Pergo and find something else. Do not get Pergo very wet.

After all my floors were destroyed in Hurricane Sandy, I opted to replace the hardwood I had down previously with Pergo. My logic was that since it is a summer home and often has a lot of company and traffic, Pergo would be more durable and I would worry less about it holding up. What a joke. I bought what I thought was a decent quality line and it was professionally installed. There is more than adequate spacing, and there is no moisture in the floors as this was closely monitored before any sheetrock or floors went down as part of mold remediation. Additionally, all the 3/4" plywood under the pergo is brand new and certainly not wet. Within a week I got bubbles in one bedroom in a few spots. I thought it was just a few bad planks and we were going to replace them...not horrible since they were toward the end of the floor. We inspected the rest of what was put down thoroughly and did not find any more bubbles. That was until last week, when 3 or 4 more planks are bubbling now in the other bedroom. After 10 months of trying to put my house back together, I am now delayed again, as I will not finish the job until the pergo inspectors come out in case the floor has to come up. I can tell already they are making excuses (moisture, install) After reviewing all the same problems on multiple sites, it's obvious their product is inferior and I am sorry I every purchased it. I'm sorry, but a little spill (which I didn't even have) should not ruin an entire floor! Do not purchase.

"Pergo floors warped in summer heat"
I had pergo floor installed last April and by July the floors stared to come up and warp. I had professionally installed and floor had room to expand. The top layer peeling off and curing at edges. They does not tolerate any moisture/humidity. Pergo states should of run my air conditioner all the time and not leave windows open???

I bought pergo floor because the add said it was easy to install. Three months later and I have not had the patience to finish the project. It takes forever to get the boards to fit together. Solid wood floors are easy to put down: you just nail them in place. I would love to sell 20 boxes of bamboo at $10 per box. (I paid $40).

We had Pergo installed in our family room. We have a son in a power wheelchair. The chair weighs 300 lbs and our son 210. After a couple of weeks the floor began to creak and give. A representative came out for an inspection and said it was too much weight for the floor. Upon repair it was found to have broken under neath. Our son can no longer venture into the room. Pretty sad and we are very disappointed. Now after two years the flooring is beginning to squeak under normal wear. We will have to change it out soon.
