Pergo

By Michael Hilton

Very few products come along that become synonymous with the products they manufacture. Products like Q-tips®, Band-Aid® and Stainmaster® became so popular, that the brand names themselves describe a whole class of products made by numerous manufacturers. Pergo has achieved icon status in the laminate flooring market. Becoming an icon has definitive disadvantages. As the brand name becomes too synonymous with a product type, the brand loses its face in the market place. However, Pergo has prevented this from happening by continuing to lead the market in design, performance, and customer service.

Today when a consumer walks into a flooring showroom, and finds 10 brands of laminate flooring, the Pergo styles seem to reach out and draw consumers to them. While a cotton swap (Q-Tip®) is just a cotton swab, and an adhesive strip (Band-aid®) may be just an adhesive strip, but Pergo is not just laminate flooring.

Pergo seems to have mastered the flooring system that they invented, and they continue to sell more laminate flooring than anyone else. They seem to have mastered the replication of hardwood, so well that many cannot distinguish between their products and wood floors after it has been installed. The old Clairol commercial ("Only your hairdresser knows for sure") applies. Except in this case only your installer knows for sure, and since laminate flooring can easily be installed by a homeowner with modest DIY skills, no one would ever need to know.

Tough Durable Flooring

Pergo laminate flooring is the ideal flooring system for busy rooms that gets lots of traffic. The flooring surface is a tough, durable flooring system that cleans easily with a damp mop or sponge. It provides the durability of vinyl flooring without the "plastic", flat appearance. While many vinyl flooring manufacturers attempt to simulate the "look" of wood floors, many simulated wood floors look fake and appear "cheap"-no matter how much they cost. Pergo laminate looks like the real thing!

All Laminate Floors are not created Equal!

While many laminate flooring brands look pretty much the same in the flooring showroom as they are cutely displayed in their lighted cases, the difference occurs underfoot.

While most laminate flooring brands are very durable, you can "feel" the difference when you walk on some laminate floors. A wood floor provides a steady surface; whereas. some laminate floors seem to float or bounce as you walk on the them.

Most laminate flooring manufacturers produce a variety of qualities at a variety of laminate price points. Remember, laminate flooring uses a printing process so the difference in price has less to do with the beauty of the pattern than the engineering that goes into it's construction. Also, laminate flooring is easily shipped by common carrier and there are a number of laminate wholesalers in the Dalton, GA area that can provide substantial savings. Dalton, GA has become a center for laminate flooring production with many laminate manufacturing facilities located in the Dalton area. These laminate flooring wholesalers have convenient access to manufacturers and deal in substantial volume.

In order to take advantage of the service offered by these wholesalers, you should shop in your own home town and identify the manufacturer name, style name, and color name that your like. Then you have two options for receiving wholesale laminate prices from these laminate wholesalers.

1. Visit our Laminate flooring price quote page and complete the form at the bottom of the page. This form will automatically email your request to Dalton Laminate Wholesalers who will respond to your request with wholesale laminate prices. Your personal information is NOT saved on our servers and is emailed directly to these wholesalers. This information is not sold to any outside source (we get and dislike junk mail as much as you do) and your information is retained only long enough to complete the transaction. Also, you should know that buying from a wholesaler is different from buying from a local retailer. They will provide wholesale laminate prices to you, probably follow-up with a phone call, and then move on to the other 60 people who are buying wholesale laminate flooring today. If you like to pay extra for laminate flooring to be courted with dozens of follow-up phone calls and emails, these wholesalers do not have time for this nonsense. They will provide the same product that your local retailer will provide at substantial savings. You will not pay any sales tax and they will help you find a local installer.

2. The second option is to visit our laminate flooring wholesaler directory page and contact each laminate wholesaler individually. This directory provides the toll-free number for each wholesaler. Note that not all of the wholesalers on this page will have received your email price quote request, so you may choose to submit the price quote form and contact the wholesalers in this directory.
