We are about to install Pergo XP flooring in highland hickory throughout the main level of our home. We originally chose this floor because we like the color, texture, the width of the planks and the ease of installation (we can install this floor ourselves). We also thought it would be a durable option with 4 kids and a dog. I am now second guessing my choice and I am wondering if I should just stick with real hardwoods. Does anyone have any experience with both hardwood and Pergo that they can share? Or if anyone can weigh in on this particular floor that would be great too. Thanks!
