There are a few important things about Pergo floor coverings . For starters , please understand that Pergo ( a registered trademark ) is a laminate , not an engineered wood or a hardwood . A lot of the Pergo line , although not ALL of it , is manufactured with the foam underlayment already on the bottom of each plank . With Laminate flooring , you need to have a 6 mil polyethelene moisture barrier , as well as a foam underlayment . The laminate floor is installed using the “floating” method . Just because Pergo has the foam underlayment attached to the planks , doesn’t mean that you don’t need the moisture barrier . If installed on concrete , it’s best to test the moisture content of the concrete prior to installing the Pergo , as well as any other type of flooring . Especially , if installing below grade . Laminate flooring does not do well in moist areas , so be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully . Another advantage to Pergo is it’s price . You can obtain a “wood” look with this product , although you won’t be fooling anyone . It will not hold up as well as engineered or hardwood , but it’s considerably much cheaper .
