No easier way than Pergo.

With three different ways to install planks, PerfectFold™ 3.0 makes installation perfectly simple:

Three different ways to install planks

Pergo Laminate Installation Dropdown

Drop down

The ideal method for quickly installing a large area. Click the plank at the long side joint, slide it until it meets the end of the previously installed plank, and press down.

Pergo Installation Laminate Horizontal

Insert horizontally

Unlike many other brands, Pergo laminate floors can also be inserted horizontally. A very handy option for places where it is difficult or impossible to tilt the planks (when installing the last row of planks, or under door frames and radiators).

Pergo Installation Laminate Angle


If you prefer, Pergo offers a third option for installing your new laminate floor. Simply angle and click the planks together at the short end.
