I will be replacing the carpet in my house. I have decided that probably a hardwood floor is too expensive for me. I had decided on pergo, but reading the different messages here has scared me off. Durability is important to me. This place is up in the mountains and I have pets. Given the choice Pergo or carpet? Which would I better off with?

carpet is fine. But it can stain...Pergo cannot.

Pergo can scratch, carpet cannot.

Pergo is easy to clean. carpet is mostly not easy to clean.

Carpet is the cheaper alternative (at least it CAN be)

Pergo is a longer lasting product (at least it should be.

Most people who hate their laminate:

Installed it wrong

Was miseducated

Had too high expectations

Use the wrong cleaners
