Do NOT buy PERGO laminate flooring. It is made from compressed paper and as a previous complaint states, if it gets wet it will warp and buckle.
We bought ours from Lowes with the same assurances that the product was acceptable for use in a kitchen application. We had ours installed in the dining room and the living room. A single spilled glass of water ruined several boards under the table and the resulting repair (replacement of 3 boxes of new laminate) was over $500.
The issue of having this same laminate in the living room presents additional problems from wet shoes walking in from outdoors. The was a definite waste of money and I am sorry that we spent so much on the flooring - I can not recommend PERGO to anyone.
A complaint to PERGO fell on deaf ears and we got a "I don't care" response.
