Wooden Pergo floating floor in their Escape..

I searched and found no posts on this subject, was wondering why no one has added the look of hardwood floors in their Escape. Here is one I did in my last unit.

I have the cork to do mine, I just have to find the time and inclination to get it done is all.

It looks fantastic! Is it actually wood or formica?

Re: Wooden Pergo floating floor in their Escape..

it is a laminated wood product, there is sawdust when you cut it. Tongue and groove assembly makes the joints disappear. It floats on top of floor with molding around perimeter. Have to allow small amount of space for summer/winter expansion/contraction, I used color caulk along one side for that reason.

Re: Wooden Pergo floating floor in their Escape..

How much weight does it add?

Re: Wooden Pergo floating floor in their Escape..

My last unit took about 2 boxes, maybe 25 lbs per box. The Escape may only need one box unless some one can give me the exact aisle size then I can get the coverage off an old box I have left in the garage. Here is a closer look, the molding is what holds it down on the floor and it contracts/expands under the moulding. Vinyl floors have been known to crack when they get real cold.

2 more- it took me one day to install and one day to trim and finish the sides.

Re: Wooden Pergo floating floor in their Escape..

Wow! Looks terrific! I thought of doing that. I do like my flooring but since I do not have the undercoated insulation, bare feet get cold on those midnight bathroom trips, so I've added throw rugs. I would guess that adding that laminate flooring would tend to eliminate that concern.

The warmth of cork is why I plan to do the cork flooring. Plus, it has a tough polyurethane coating on it too.
