I have installed both laminated wood and Pergo (as well as other laminate products). Real wood will scratch and dent more than other laminated products. Real wood can be refinished, while other laminated products can not.

If you like the look of real wood, use real wood. However, Pergo and other laminates are very attractive and durable alternatives.

Good luck,

Is it possible to place pine boards on a particle board subfloor, or would Pergo be a simpler and cheaper alternative?

Thank you
