size limit for Pergo installation?

Not a DIY'er myself, we want a Pergo floor installed in our newly built 4-season room, 12x18 ft--the guy at Home Depot says that might be too much area, that it might "come up", whereas an installer we called said "no problem"--any reason to think any problems would occur? Thanks alll--

Not sure why it would be a problem at all.

Generally in order for a room to be to "large" to install laminate flooring all in one piece, the room needs to be somewhere around 40' length by 26' in board width. so for a 12' x 18' room you are perfectly fine.

Never believe anything anyone in the flooring department at Home Depot or Lowe's tells you! They will lead you right down the road to a failure in a heartbeat. They worked in bath fixtures last week.

agree with you there CDR. And that goes for every department, not just flooring..! I get better advice from the hardware store around the corner that's been there for 50 years.

Thanks all for the insight--like I said, not a DIY'er myself, but it's a relief hearing from those who've "been there & done that..." --kjcon258

With the exception of the kitchen, my entire downstairs is contiguous Pergo - approx 1500 sq. feet of it. Had it put in 6 or 7 years ago maybe more. It was fairly new on the market back then. Nothing has moved, shifted or buckled. It was the old style - glued together - which I think holds much better than snap and lock. Have the snap and lock upstairs and am not happy with it. It doesn't like any kinds of water leaks AT ALL.
