I bought Pergo laminate and had it installed in 2019 in my kitchen, great room, and a long hall. Within one year, it was buckling....not in the kitchen, nor by the 2 outside doors, but in the hall. Pergo gives a lifetime warranty. It took forever for a rep to come...The sweetest little old lady and husband finally showed up. What a scam! It was ruled water damage. Who has water damage in the middle of a hall?? I got nothing because it had been discontinued and would cost them too much to replace. Don't be deceived. Lowe's did not stand up for this product either. Lots of buckling now. Search for a better product.

My mom has had Pergo laminate in the main areas of her house for 10+ years. It has stood up to a 125lb Rottweiler and a 65lb pit mix. No scratches, no chips, no peeling edges. We do keep a rug under the dogs' water bowl for extra precaution. Her floors do have some small gaps now where you have slide them back together... I don’t know if that’s something that happens over time or installation malfunction. I also had Pergo XP Asheville Hickory in my home for over two years, we moved. It held up to 2 65lb plus dogs, also no scratches, no peeling edges etc. I am in the market for their flooring again because of how durable it is, however inventory is difficult to come by right now.

We just installed flooring and have had to return and re-order the rooms' transition bars at least 4 times! The pieces were faulty and falling apart - the wood actually stripping off from underneath. It looks like these are either very old pieces, faulty pieces, or parts that were not in moisture controlled environments. The installer has over 20 years of experience installing floors and this is the first time he's seen this issue! We have had to go back to Home Depot several times and re-order. This project should have taken a week to get done and has taken over 2 months just because of these horrible transition bars!
The newest order we received today looks completely different and new and fits in perfectly. So that means Pergo sent crappy old parts (3 times) and Home Depot is not even refunding them. I don't see myself using Pergo products ever again. This has been a nightmare - waste of money, energy, and time! I will raise this issue all over social media.

Nice flooring, but had an issue with a transition piece ordered with the flooring. They say it comes with their special trimmer to make it into one of four potential transitions. Great idea but there was no trimmer. Quick response on line said tech will send one. Never received, quick response, again said it shipped USPS but they would ship another UPS. A week after laying the floor, nothing shows up and the UPS tracking number they sent me is no good. Close out of a job held up by a silly transition. Nice flooring (for laminate) but don’t believe a word they tell you if you need help with a problem. Won’t install again, even if the homeowner wants it.

We live in a condo which is built on a slab, no basement. When we moved in we originally planned on simple vinyl flooring for an industrial effect but after two attempts at an install from Home Depot, their flooring department convinced us to go with the Pergo floor, and installed it via one of their "qualified contractors." About three months later the floor started to chip and the boards began to cup. We have had the floor for five years now and the laminate surface is peeling and chipping. The boards themselves are warping and since the floor runs through the entire unit the ten thousand dollar job would have to be totally replaced to correct the problem. I would stay away from this product and also not have any installations done by Home Depot, as, from my research, the installation was done improperly and the product is inferior.

In late 2019, we purchased Pergo TimberCraft + WetProtect Waterproof Crest Ridge Hickory Handscraped Wood Plank Laminate Flooring. It was advertized as waterproof with a seal splashing water outside of a tub. It was installed according to all instructions and all the joints were made tight with the use of purchased tapping blocks until it was solid. At the end of the year we accidentally left a puddle in the middle of the kitchen floor for about 45 to 60 minutes. Water seeped down through the flooring causing an area in the middle of the kitchen to have warped edges around each plank. It took over 6 months to get them to even consider a warranty claim. They sent an inspector who reported the water damage. The final decision was that the flooring showed no sign of manufacturing defect. Their claim of being waterproof was confirmed to be a lie by the inspector. I can show copies of the inspector report and the final claim denial.

My flooring is pulling apart on the ends. Our seams in high traffic areas are getting wider gaps. You can slide the boards back and forth. This is only happening on the longest rows. We have the hickory wood flooring. Floor is a floating floor. The tabs that interlock on the lengths of the boards are damaged so the boards slide. Pergo said it was installed wrong, not sure how but between Lowe’s who supplied installer and Pergo (lifetime warranty) nothing has been done. Very disappointed in the product and service. We purchased Pergo because of warranty and name!!! Hollow promises.

We purchased the floor because they are suppose to be waterproof with 24 hour spill proof protection. They are not or nowhere of being close to waterproof. We have a special needs son who occasionally drop his juice. Nothing ever sits on the floor over an hour. We have puckering and cupping in multiple areas. These floors were purchased and installed by Home Depot. The commercial for this flooring shows a family in the kitchen having a water fight with the faucet and a Great Dane dog and its says worry free. It's false advertising! We've contacted Mohawk about the issue and they refused to do anything! Thinking of getting an attorney involved to help resolve this issue. Very disappointed with company!

I just finished installing Pergo Westlake Oak planks. Installation went fairly well. I purchased the threshold and quarter round that matches. The quarter round is absolute junk. Particleboard wrapped in color matched paper. I will be returning to Lowe's and purchasing PVC quarter round and paint to match my trim. I realized early on that the threshold instructions wouldn't work with my laminate/carpet transition. Had to use 2 layers of underlayment under the channel, including the shim, to get the channel to the right height to use the T (there was not enough of a height difference to use any of the other pieces of the 4:1 kit).
Installed the channel. When trying to install the T, the particleboard that should fit into the channel just snapped, one $30 investment done. Tried the next one as I had to purchase 4 of them for my installation. Same problem. For what the Pergo and trim/threshold cost, you'd think it would be of better quality. Need to decide if I'll waste more $$ and buy another threshold kit or come up with my own solution. Very disappointed in this expensive particle board junk. Should have installed Bruce hardwoods.

Currently attempting to install this product. It is absolutely a nightmare to work with. It does not lock together easily nor stay locked. Seriously considering ripping off all the tongues and grooves and just gluing it down. I've installed tile floors, wood floors, linoleum floors in this house, everything except carpet. We thought this would be a quick update for a little used room before we sell this house in a few years. What a nightmare. Do not recommend Pergo.

Began installing Pergo Extreme LV plank today. Several hours later, I gave up. The first thing I noticed was these thin white and blue plastic strips falling off of them. Turns out that they are part of the edge that "snaps" together with the next piece. Obviously the poor quality and construction of Pergo LV planks makes it impossible to handle the planks without losing these pieces. They should be glued to the plank...not just stuck in a groove where they VERY EASILY fall off. Not to mention how very easily the locking edges get damaged. Just routine installation handling or removing them from their box damages the locking grooves.
I've bought and installed discounted flooring from a 'seconds' wholesaler that was leaps and bounds MUCH better quality than Mohawk Pergo. It's been installed for over two years now and looks like it did the day I installed it. I'm not even going to attempt to file a claim with Mohawk Pergo. But I will be fighting this with my retailer. Unacceptable, low quality, disappointing from such a long-time company.

Pergo seems to be pretty much cardboard covered with a thin film of some kind, a cheap, not-quite-plastic material. (Yes, I purchased the upgraded version). It will chip, it will rot and disintegrate pretty easily around an entryway. I had to take the matching quarter round trim off (it had disintegrated) and I replaced it with PVC. Also some of the planks have separated from each other, which may be an installation issue. As the big box store recommended, I paid to have floor leveler poured (before the Pergo was to be laid) but the installer said leveler would crack over time and I'd be better off to just install the Pergo without it. I trusted his judgement, stupid me.
About 15 minutes after the installer finished, his office called to get my official review. A fifteen minute old floor looks great and nothing has had time to go wrong yet, so I gave it a good review. Stupid naive me! Next time an installer's office asks me if I'm satisfied my answer will be "I'm not sure...call back in a year". I recommend potential buyers of Pergo buy or borrow a sample and look carefully at the edge, or cross section. Stick a pin or a pointy object in. Wet it some, and dry it, just like a real floor has to endure. See what you think. I'll bet you'll buy something else. Oh, I can't add photos right now due to Covid 19 travel restrictions (Pergo is at my Jersey shore home).

Have spent decades working in condominiums, the Author has had occasion to see various types of home decor in everyday use. Wherever failures were noted, they were remembered. With respect to Pergo flooring, it was noted that where high heels were worn, the laminate sometimes failed on some corners. High heels represent a relatively high loading per square inch. These same types of shoes can dent or mar real wood flooring as well. Recently in a Big Box store, without knowing how it happened, the author noted the same corner failure as noted where the product was in actual use.

Do not purchase this flooring! When I started having issues with this, I went online and found hundreds of complaints. This is their MO blaming the customer for their terrible product! Their flooring sucks! If you have an issue with it they blame you and will not honor their warranty! The report from their so called inspector is bogus. I purchased my Pergo flooring online and had it installed. I noticed the flooring looked damaged, but I wasn’t sure if what I saw online may have been different than what I received, so I took some photos and sent to customer service and ask if this is damaged? They replied with yes you need to make a claim.
I made no claim of cracked or peeling flooring. I only said it looked like seconds. What a complication it has been to make a claim. I had to drive forty miles to the nearest Home Depot store because Mohawk will not to to customer directly. When I got there no one knew how to put in claim. I left my information with them and a few days later was contacted. I was ask for planks which are already on the floor. Then they sent a man out to inspect the flooring. He did not want to talk to me, and anything I ask him he would say he could not answer because he would get fired. I knew at that point he was only there for show and most likely the claim would be denied.
He took pictures of my dust mop and my thermostat, my insulation under my house, and my house! I only had the flooring for less than a month! He loosened a plank near the closet and now that area is parted at the seam. Nothing he did had anything whatsoever to do with the flooring in the same condition it was in when it came straight out of the box. I had nothing to do with the issues with the flooring being seconds and sold to me as retail. The report said it was improperly installed, not true! The flooring came out of the box from the factory in this condition. It has been nothing but a hassle to deal with this. Now I have to pay someone to repair what your inspector damaged!

Not alot to say except there were maybe 7 pieces of the flooring that actually locked together. 13 hours later and 7 boxes, we have one row down. I bet anyone would have the same issue we are.

I purchased Pergo laminate flooring for my living room, kitchen, dining room, playroom, entryway, and hallways. After 2 years my floor is falling apart. There are scratches everywhere, the color is almost completely gone from the thresholds. The color that is left on the thresholds is white and the rest is metal. The thresholds are so loose that my 2 year old son picks them up and brings them to me. The actual flooring is scratched and has deep gouges in it. The top laminate is also beginning to peel right off of the floors leaving the "wood" exposed. The floors swell so bad my pantry door won't close.
Lowe's opened a claim on my behalf, but since they only guarantee the work for one year they sent the claim to Pergo who has denied me saying I have water damage. My house has been thoroughly inspected and I do not and never have had any major leaks. We even replaced our front and back doors during the same time as the floors were being installed. Pergo refuses to talk to me directly claiming they will only talk to Lowe's on my behalf and Lowe's says they will only file one claim on my behalf and will not do any appeals. This is the worst 7,000$ I have ever spent.

100% true and honest review! Installed Pergo Portfolio. Wet Protect Technology. Waterproof Natural Park Hickory Laminate in my living room. 250 sq. ft.
1: After preparing my floor, installation was easy (I am a skilled trades worker just to note) and finished in 1 work day. Did the project alone...
2: Not 1 damaged plank in any of the boxes I ordered. 15 in total.
3: Felt pads under all feet of furniture and tables. 80 lbs. Pit Bull and no scratches as of yet with no area rugs.
4: Left a few cut pieces outside in the rain for 2 days (just to see what would happen. because I do live in a state wit all 4 seasons) and it hasn't warped or bubbled til now.Cons:
1: Floor occasionally creaked (just from settling I'm sure, but not from walking across it) after install.Conclusion:

We purchased Pergo Max flooring for our living room, kitchen, dining room and down our hallway to the bedrooms. Worst mistake ever!! We only purchased this flooring over others due to the salesperson explaining how it was the best product for having animals around the house. We have had nothing but trouble with the flooring bubbling up, scratches all over and starting to peel. We have spent over $7000 on the flooring and had Lowe's install the product. Not only is their product junk. Their customer service isn't too great either. We even purchased the extra warranty to have just in case. Waste of money!!!

We needed to replace our carpet after Hurricane Florence. My sister had older Pergo and loved it. She has 3 dogs. I wanted something waterproof and not luxury vinyl. I chose the Timbercraft in Anchor Grey. It looks great on the floor. However, we already have several places where the laminate is missing. They are small but you can see them. We have had to purchase the Pergo floor fixer which I didn't know existed. No one has dropped anything. It is just from living on it. We have had this on floors for 2 weeks only. We are almost paranoid about putting anything on floor, vacuuming and just living here. Soft soles on shoes only or barefoot. I really thought this would be more durable. We spent lots of money on something that isn't living up to having a "Great Dane" on the floors. Sadly we should have gone with cheaper floors since these probably won't last.

Purchased 2500.00 worth of Pergo laminate flooring 1 year ago. Seems like everyday I notice more and more issues. Started with the seams buckling shortly after installation.

Couple areas that are not even in traffic areas are now bubbling like there is water damage. Brand new home with 600 square feet of garbage on the floor. Was looking up warranty info only to find it seems I am not the only one with a horrible looking floor and after reading everyone's experience with the so called warranty will not bother pursuing it.

I purchased and had installed about 1000sq feet of Montgomery Apple Pergo max. Within a few month the edges are peeling. If you walk into the house during rain and don't immediately dry the floor of even a few drops, the floor is ruined. The water seeps into the seams and the edge peels up. Very very disappointed. We didn't install it in our kitchen because they warn against spills etc. But not being able to walk into your house when it rains or snows is ridiculous.
Pergo now has a more water resistant floor, they obviously got lots of complaints. We had a grandchild drop a baby bottle and didn't realize until the next morning as the bottle rolled under the table, the few drops that dripped out of the bottle, found their way to the edge of a plank and boom, it's peeling up. (Not the plank, but the design layer). Homes are made to live in and floors are made to service those walking on them. Having to be so cautious about every drip etc is silly. I would never buy another Pergo product again. Too much hassle.

Bought a full house full of Malaysian Kempas Pergo and 8 years later it started to fade and definitely is not holding up to the "no scratch or ding" situation that was promised by the salesperson. Filed a complaint and the supervisor at Pergo stated that he would only take care of the room with fading and nothing else. I feel that if I paid $8000 in flooring and installation that it should last longer than 8 years.
So now my only solution is to have 1 room in the house completely different than the rest (because they don't make Malaysian Kempas any more) or to get paid out on the flooring only. I wanted my whole house to have matching flooring and now I have to either keep the crappy Pergo or have 1 room completely different. NEVER AGAIN! Supervisor was argumentative and I did not feel that their customer service was done in a timely manner or was empathetic to my situation. I will not be using Pergo in my home or my rentals and will definitely let my real estate clients know that they should stay away and buy a better product.
