In reply to Flooring for my kitchen by Angela on November 8th, 2001 10:47 PM [Go to top of thread]

There are allot of people on this board that dislike laminate flooring and
haven't ever had it or installed it, yet they draw a conclusions based on other
peoples problems. There are many different name brand laminate floors but
there are a hand full of names that everyone knows of, just like automobiles.
So if we were on a message board that had to do with cars and someone had
a problem with a Dodge Caravan, it doesn't mean that everyone was going
too have that same problem. This is a post a posted a while back, I hope it
answers your questions. There are allot of people on this board that have no
experience working with
or installing laminate, so since I do work with flooring everyday I will give
you my two cents. I deal with all types of flooring everyday (hardwood,
ceramic tile, natural stone, carpet, and vinyl flooring. I am not bias to any of
them because they all have a plus and a minus to them, so to answer your
question Pergo or any laminate flooring can go over tile, laminate floors are
one of the most popular floors on the market right now, one reason is
because of its easy maintenance. Do people have problems with laminate
flooring ? Yes, the floor can scratch as can any other hard surface floor on the
market. Can it buckle ? Yes if the floor doesn't have the proper expansion
space around the perimeter, Hardwood can have the same problems, but you
can refinish hardwood flooring, most people ever refinish their hardwood
once and never again.
Hard wood is forever and laminate has the similar look of hardwood and the
easy maintenance.
