Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Limited Lifetime Warranty
  • Laminate Floor Experts

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Pergo has multiple different warranty options that are specific to their laminate and hardwood floors. There is a Limited Lifetime Residential warranty and a Pergo Outlast+ warranty for their laminate flooring. They also have multiple different warranty options for their hardwood floors. Before choosing a flooring, understand the different warranties to ensure you are getting the right warranty for what you are looking for. 

Laminate Floor Experts

Pergo was the original company that invented laminate, and they did so in 1977. The company has had the time and the experience to improve their laminate products, so if you are looking to install laminate flooring, Pergo is a great company to go with. 


The Bad

  • Limited Products

Limited Products

Pergo products are exclusive to the retailers or chains that sell them. If you see a design, color, or sub-brand online or in a non-local store, then there is no guarantee for that product to be located in your local retail store that carries Pergo products. 

Pergo also only offers laminate and wood flooring, making the options a lot slimmer. Pergo flooring is sensitive to moisture, so it is not recommended in places like a bathroom or to be used with a steam mop. If you are looking for a floor that can endure moisture, Pergo is not the flooring for you. 


The Bottom Line

We would recommend Pergo if you are interested in laminate floors. It is the company that invented the flooring, and the employees are also experts on it. Pergo doesn’t have many other products, so if you are looking for another type of flooring Pergo is not the company to go with.
