I too attempted to install a Pergo floor. I wanted it installed in time for Thanksgiving. The packages I received all had chips or lifting lamination. The installer was fit to be tied. I went to another retailer and their material was a bit better but, we still found chips and lifting lamination. The color I used was the Honey Oak which is one of Pergo's darker floors. The product is definitely flawed and should be pulled from the shelves if Pergo can't get the problem fixed.
