Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tj Looks rich
It was easy to install but we were somewhat disappointed with the quality of the product. We have used it in the past and it has held up very well in my kitchen and my utility room. The edges of this flooring was chipped and had more waste than anticipated, otherwise we like the richness of the flooring and looks beautiful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DGR Great Look and Easy Install
My wife and I installed this. It was our first time with anything like this. It was so easy...minus a few issues.
The end product looks great. We had oak floors in our last two homes and the Grand Oak wasn't the right color, so we went with this and it is great.
Some minor issues:
-a few of the planks padding wasn't cut right so the pieces wouldn't fit together. Had to make sure each pad was trimmed. Most of them were...just had an issue with a few.
- not an issue with the product, but you must install them straight and use the block to knock each one together, even if they look like they are tight.
-must make sure your floors are level! I cannot express this enough. At the end of our job we were so tired that I forgot to check level in the last room. Now the floors squeak and you can feel them 'give' when you walk on them in the one room in one area. We're too tired to move furniture again and take up the floor to fix it...but we might have to anyway.
This is a good quality product and looks great. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lhwb Love my new floors!
We had Ashville Hickory installed in our kitchen, dining room, hallway, living room, foyer and master bedroom about 2 months ago and just love it. It looks beautiful and seems like it's going to hold up very well. We have 2 dogs who are constantly chasing each other and sliding across the floors and there isn't a mark on them. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Frameboy Good But Not Perfect
Of course this isn't hardwood flooring and doesn't cost as much so you would expect some compromises here and there. That said, here are my pros and cons with this product:
On the pro side, the overall appearance of this floor is pretty nice. Again, it's obvious that you're not looking at a hardwood floor but it's decent, especially considering the price compared to wood. Not having to nail the floor down makes for faster installation too. The planks are extremely consistent in size - something not always seen with hardwood.
Here are my cons: The included instructions are pretty vague concerning installation. It's not readily apparent just what the proper technique is for joining the ends of the planks together. The pictorial instructions show three methods, only one of which produces perfect joints. This method of sliding the end joints together is also pretty much impossible to do beyond the first row as you have to lift planks already engaged along the long side in order to properly align the plank you're trying to attach. This action tends to disengage planks already in place and is quite frustrating. Using one of the other two methods risks damaging the fragile plank ends and once you do that, the plank is pretty much useless - unless you are able to cut it for use where you need a shorter plank. The Pergo website has an installation video but it doesn't address this part of the installation.
This flooring is not particularly forgiving of an uneven subfloor so I would advise taking extra care to provide the flattest subfloor you can. The instructions do address floor prep so read them and follow the advice found there. I installed my floor over and existing upstairs subfloor of 3/4" plywood and even though I tried to make sure it was within the specs given in the instructions, I was dealing with a 40 year old structure which was not perfect so I ended up with areas not quite up to the standards required. I've noticed that walking on the new floor produces a slight creak here and there where the laminate is flexing. What will be the long term effect of this, I wonder?
To sum up, I would offer the following advice: Be sure to inspect every plank before you install it, checking for flaws along the edges. They must be perfect or they either will not fit properly or will have visible flaws once installed. Also check carefully for flaws in the surface finish - I found more than a few imperfect planks. Take extra care to prepare a good subfloor - it'll pay off down the road in a better installation.
Do some research and try to find what works best for you regarding installation - especially those tricky end joints.
Follow the requirements on leaving expansion space around your room but if your project is new construction, be sure to install your flooring close enough around door frames so once your casing is installed there won't be any gaps showing. If you're installing in a room with existing door casing, follow the instructions to undercut the door frames.
I gave this product an average rating, based pretty much on installation difficulties and the degree of fragility of the finished edges. Otherwise, it's worth the cost compared to hardwood flooring. Good luck with your project!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metra6625 Home Depot + Pergo Flooring = Great Product & Shopping Experience.
Very easy to install. Worst part was removing the old carpeting, tack strips, padding and staples. Should have done this long ago. Very pleased with the Pergo floor.
