Speed contest – How long does it take to install a floor?

Laying a new floor is a great way to upgrade a room and increase the value of your home. But isn’t it also a costly and/or time-consuming undertaking? It doesn’t have to be. With a click floor from Pergo, you can do the work yourself and save a ton of money. And because our floors are so easy to install, you won’t be spending too much of your precious free time on it, either.

Renovating: ain’t nobody got time for that

We all know that upgrading a room is always a good investment. But with countless other obligations to take care of, our renovation plans keep getting pushed back. The main excuses? Lack of time. All things considered, however, installing a Pergo click floor takes far less time than, say, solving a 500-piece puzzle, binge watching an entire season of your favourite series, or teaching a parrot to say ‘Pergo’. How do we know? Because we tested it! Watch our Pergo speed contest below.

When everything just clicks

Whether you prefer laminate, vinyl or hardwood doesn’t matter: each and every Pergo floor is equipped with the ingenious, patented PerfectFold™ installation system. It doesn’t matter if you’re left or right handed either: just click the planks together and you’ll be walking on your brand-new floor in no time. In many cases, you won’t have to remove the old floor at all. Just make sure you prepare your subfloor carefully. Oh, and put away that messy glue: you won’t need it here.

In fact, the click system is so well-thought-through that there is also virtually no risk of damage during installation. Want to replace some worn-out planks later on, or reinstall them somewhere else? PerfectFold™ technology allows you to lift planks up easily and put them down again without causing any damage.
