I just finished installing 550 Sq. ft. of Asheville Hickory Pergo flooring. I've never done flooring before. I watched the on line video's and read the instructions and that provided enough direction for the installation. I would recommend ripping a 3/4 inch pine board and make your own 3/8 inch spacing boards for the edges. Also recommend a cut off saw with a laminate blade (tungsten carbide) vs. a skill saw. The Pergo has a very hard surface and actually wore out the blade on the cut off saw. Also recommend the purchase of the laminate installation kit and a rubber mallet to tap the Pergo in place. Use the technique to insert the Pergo at a 30 deg angle. For multiple planks in a row, carefully slide the edges together and insert the next piece at the same 30 deg angle. When the row is done tip the entire row down flat. This works best with 2 people for long rows. I struggled a bit by myself. I purchased the matching quarter round and that finished off the free floating edge quite nicely. Knee pads are a worth while purchase but watch putting your knee on the groove edge of the Pergo when moving around because edge will break if you put your knee on the edge.
I can't speak for long term performance it only been installed for a week. The surface is very hard and seems hard to scratch. All seams are tight with no gaps when tapped tightly in place. The floor does look beautiful. I purchased felt for my furniture legs and even heavy pieces of furniture can easily be moved around by one person. I'm happy with the install and look. If you are a skilled do it yourself type the project is reasonable. A newbie might need some help. The 10% waste rule worked for me I had to planks left over. I would give it 5 stars but don't don't know what the long term will bring.

The product looks good when put down. Why however would Pergo make a product like this and not have the molding strips to match? When joining the planks end to end it is a one shoot deal, (at least my experience). If you have to take them apart it will rip the lower locking lug apart. It can cause unusable planks. It does look good when in.The Dupont I put down years ago had a more user friendly locking process, however they don't make the product any longer. The only reason I do not recommend this product is only because I rarely recommend something like this to a person. Each person has a different comfort level on this type of buy.

We replaced some old carpet in our living room, hallway and office, and though it took me a few days to complete the process, it was very easy to work with, and looks great. I tested a small piece of the flooring material in water to see how it would react, and found that even if it's soaks in water for a while, once it dries, it will return to it's original form and structure, for the most part. It has a limited lifetime warranty, and is rated for pets. We have a large puppy who will test it, I'm sure. Most of all, it's comfortable, lasting, and looks great with our remodeled living room. My wife is very happy.

Floor is beautiful no doubt. But I bought 6 boxes and randomly throughout the boxes was bad like there was white and black edges on the planks therefore couldn't be used how that got packed is beyond me it is very noticeable so you can't take back one piece or 5 pieces so I had to buy another box to get 3 planks which sucked. So was disappointed in that it beautiful but you get screwed with the amount of waste you have and throw in a few bad boards puts a huge damper on buying hardwood floor. It's not cost effective like you think!

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Yikes Don't get! Damaged goods
Ok where to start.... I wanted to love this floor. Great color. However, the planks don't have beveled ridges. Meaning the ends are flat and the seams are flat so when they snap together and you rub your hand across it there is a lip. It catches feet, socks, etc.... We baught 62 boxes and because of the lip the ends easily snap off, it's not attaching smoothly to each other. The flooring is brand new plywood. So I can't imagine even trying other old floor bases with this defect. Please heed my warning. Now special ordering the Pergo with a beveled edge to feel seemless.

Installation was easy. Several of the boards were damaged, but our Home Depot replaced them for us. Floor looks very nice!
