Pergo Flooring: Premium Laminate Flooring

Flooring

Decorative laminate had been used in countertops, paneling, and other intricate projects years before the material was viable for flooring. Original laminate wasn’t nearly strong enough to withstand the wear and abuse of a typical residential floor. Reinforced laminate was introduced to the market in the 80s beginning in Sweden and then to the rest of Europe. The development of reinforced laminate quickly took hold and it wasn’t long before laminate products were more than twenty times as strong as the original decorative laminate. Pergo was out front in leading the research and development of the new laminate flooring and soon the company and its new product took off. Pergo flooring came to the US in 1994 and has been among the leading suppliers of laminate flooring ever since.

Product Options and Cost
One of the main advantages of Pergo flooring is the endless options it gives you for your flooring project. While only certain natural woods are up to the wear and tear of residential flooring, Pergo can offer any number of wood appearances and finishes to match your decorating tastes. Different tiling or planking options and the exact laminate flooring product you choose will affect the price of the flooring, but this variance isn’t nearly as cost-prohibitive as exotic wood installations. Low-end laminate flooring will usually cost just over $1 per sq. ft. and can range up to $4 per sq. ft. for more high-end options.

 

Installation
The tongue and groove method makes the installation of Pergo flooring significantly easier and also greatly reduces the cost of your flooring project. Similar to paneling or fencing installations the general installation technique is not difficult to learn. Many homeowners with basic DIY skills can install their own flooring, although edges, end moldings, and sawing can also mean leaving the installation to a professional will guarantee a flawless, beautiful installation.

Pergo flooring offers installation training to service professionals specifically for their flooring. When you hire a service professional, you’ll want to make sure that professional is a Pergo Endorsed Installer. In some cases, improper installation can affect product warranties. You can also buy an extended service warranty for your Pergo flooring to add risk-free years to your floor.

Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance—Even with the extra strength of reinforced laminate, there is no such thing as an indestructible floor. You’ll want to use felt protectors for heavier furniture and appliances. Mats, rugs, or other floor coverings may help near exterior entrances to reduce the risk of tracking in gravel or other particles that can occasionally scratch your laminate flooring.

General Maintenance—Dust mops or vacuums with hard-floor attachments are the best way to clean your Pergo flooring. The hard and compressed nature of the floor makes it easy to clean and you’ll never need to wax or refinish it. If you do end up scratching your floor, putty can cover small areas or a Pergo Endorsed Installer can replace individual planks or tiles.

Flooring Cost: A Quick Overview

Flooring

As with any major home improvement decision, it’s helpful to compare flooring prices before making the big leap. When it comes to floor cost, there’s several things to keep in mind. First of all, regional prices for materials and flooring installation may vary. While the following price estimates make for a good starting point, it’s important to talk to suppliers and installers in your area to get a more concrete idea of what your final floor cost is going to be. Also, don’t forget that when you purchase flooring, you’re making a substantial investment in your home that you’re going to have to live with for years to come. Budget concerns might influence your decision, but beware of letting them be your only guide.

 

  • Hardwood floors are going to cost $5 to $15 dollars per square foot for material depending on the quality of the boards and the width. As for installation, expect $2 to $8 per square foot, depending on whether your boards are pre-treated or need to be finished on site. 
  • Laminate flooring is very cost effective with a floor cost of $1 to $6 a square foot for materials. It’s also easy to install, sporting installation costs of $1 to $5 per square foot, including laying down the sub-floor padding. 
  • Linoleum floors run around $2 to $3 per square foot for materials, and another $5 to $7 for installation. Expect to pay a little more for more complicated colors and design schemes. 
  • Vinyl Sheet runs $1 to $5 per square foot for materials and a cheap $1 to $2 per square foot for installation. 
  • Vinyl tiles are the cheapest flooring option on the market. Your floor cost will run in the neighborhood of $1 to $4 dollars for materials and $1 to $2 per square foot for installation. 
  • Stone tiles run $7 to $20 per square foot for the materials and $6 to $8 dollars per square foot, at least, for installation. Many tilers charge more for installing stone because lugging around the tiles is a more labor intensive than working with ceramic or vinyl counterparts. 
  • Ceramic tiles run anywhere from $5 to $15 per square foot for materials and $6 to $8 per square foot for installation.You Get What You Pay For
    On a final note, expect to get what you pay for. Flooring materials vary greatly in quality, durability and looks, and the less you shell out the more likely you are to get a product that is going to let you down in the years to come. Floor cost is one of those things, both with materials and installation, where the more you pay out initially, the less often you’ll be faced with costly repairs on down the line.

But all sides there must be a weakness. For wood frames are particularly vulnerable to the weather. If we choose wood that is less good then the erratic weather changes can make the wood shrinks and expands. In the event of expansion at one corner of the wood (on windows / doors), then it may result difficult to open (blocked). For aluminum also has disadvantages. For example, if when we do the installation by using the Fischer system. This technique relies on the power screw fischer diborkan and planted along the jamb against the wall around the door jamb that has been plastered neatly and very accurately the size and angle elbow. For this installation technique, if something goes wrong in the installation then it can be fatal.

For wooden frames can be applied to any concept of home. But for the aluminum frame only to certain concepts, eg, minimalist or classic European. To use all the back to the consumer.
