Pergo is a name brand of a snap and lock wood composite flooring. For a couple of hundred dollars you can have the look of a hardwood floor without the maintenance of a HWF and do it yourself. There are cheaper brands that work just fine, but also some that are horrible. Beware. But, is generally better suited for a smaller area, kitchen, dining room, foyer, bedroom, etc... You might not enjoy it for areas larger than about 200 sqft. With it you can cover original flooring without harming it (ie - tile or hardwood) that might have some flaws in it or you can put it over a subfloor. Yes, most need an underlayment of a film, but helps with the flow of the surface under the new flooring. Can you tell I voted for Pergo? lol
