Pergo Panals for ceiling

Posted by worwiz (My Page) on

I was thinking of using Pergo or an off brand of man made flooring, what I am going to do is put 1 x 2 strips 16 OC across the 24 OC trusses then install flooring panels across them as would be done with hard wood using a finish nailer and nailing every 16 in. in the seam to hold the panels up. I am a little concerned about expansion and buckling. Has anyone ever done this? This is a large room with a pitched ceiling maybe gluing them up would be better? Or maybe it can not be done at all, any advice would be much appreciated, and thanks in advance

With solid hardwood, maybe. With a "floating floor" it wouldn't be a good idea at all.

That was exactly what I had planned until I found tongue and groove solid pine planks at Home Depot. A 12-footer costs about $7. I used wood conditioner and stained them which took no time at all. I did not even use a poly final coat since they wouldn't get any wear and tear.

It would be much cheaper, look better and work far better to just buy pine V-groove panels from one of the big boxes. You can stain or paint them before you put them up.
