I work in a dental office and we just put new carpet in two years ago. It is in awful shape in the waiting room. The winter's are especially bad. We had thought about using a commericial grade of Pergo, but after reading some of the posts on Pergo, now I'm not so sure about that either. Any suggestions out there? We need to get something that will hang in there for about 10 years, than we can retire and it will be someone elses problem LOL

I seriously doubt a carpet is going to do the job for you. Your best bet is go with ceramic tile. It will definately last 10 years and you shouldn't have any problems with it.

I have just discovered rubber floor tiles for residential use. I posted a new message to try and get feedback from people who have rubber tiled floors. If you like the look of it, I think rubber would suit your application. Cost is about $6.25/SF. Check for more info.

I've seen Pergo, or at least a Pergo look alike, in a restaraunt and it was not holding up well. I'll agree with the ceramic tile as a great choice and easy to maintain.
