Pergo vs. ANYTHING these days is a hot topic. Pergo has become as common a name as Kleenex has to facial tissues and Band Aid has to adhesive bandages.
I can help you by directing you to info for part of your dilema. Go to the Floor Search web site for info on laminated floors, vinyl, hardwood, etc.. After that, go to Pergo vs The World and read on. This article will even give price guides as well as an education. You can also go to AltaVista Search Engine and enter in the following text exactly: +pergo & +hardwood :to see what other sites are out there to inform you more.
I hope this helps. Lots of luck. E-mail me directly if you have any questions.
