Pergo Laminate Flooring is an Inexpensive and Durable Alternative to Hardwood Flooring
By Mark J. Donovan
||Pergo flooring is laminate flooring. Pergo is simply a brand name of laminate flooring. There are a variety of other manufacturers of laminate flooring that compete with Pergo. Pergo flooring is manufactured to look like hardwood floors, however it’s less expensive to manufacture and it’s easy to install. Pergo laminate flooring is designed so that a moderately skilled DIY homeowner can install it themselves with little effort or tools.
Though in most cases Pergo flooring is designed to look like real hardwood floors it can also be constructed to look like nearly any type of material.
The reason for this is in its unique construction. Sandwiched in between a high density fiber board base and a hard transparent melamine resin top coat is a graphic image of the material the Pergo laminate flooring is emulating. The high density fiber board is typically about ½ inch thick, and the transparent melamine surface is design to be highly scratch resistant.
Besides its extremely affordable cost, it is also highly resilient to foot traffic, and family and pet abuse. Consequently it’s ideal for recreation rooms and other high traffic areas.
With regards to repairing Pergo flooring, in the rare event the Pergo floor is scratched there are color kits that can be purchased to mask out the scratches.
