We are thinking about installing Pergo/Pergo Presto in our family room - above a concrete subfloor. I have seen positive and negative comments on different sites. What are your results?

Hi mitchell,

'Our' comments are the same. 'We' have had mixed results.

Since you're already 'familiar' with what some folks have said, it's time for you to 'decide' or weight the +/- of Pergo based on how you're gonna use the room, the sub-floor, above/below grade, cost, repairability, added value, and so on. Really, if your findings are mixed, that's pretty much the way it is w/Pergo.

Personally, (which you didn't ask), I'm not a Pergo fan, no matter what the 'situation'. I'll leave it at that.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

May I suggest that Pergo, Original, Select, Classic etc and Pergo Presto are completely different products! The Presto is made in a different factory to totally different specs with both the substrate and assembly systems being different. In fact the Presto product is made in a different country!

Fred - do you have any more details on the performance of Pergo products? Is the Pergo Presto worth it? or any of the other products? We're planning this for our family room and we have 3 small kids. I'll need to go back and do some more research to make sure I separate the products and their comments. Thanks for your help.
