    Unhappy noisy Pergo flooring

    We built an inlaw suite in our 2 bay garage last fall. Because it was at a lower level than the house, the subfloor was raised about a foot. This allowed easy plumbing and wiring. The joists were correctly laid and plywood was put on top.The Pergo had its own underlayment. It looks great (wide plank rustic chestnut). After a few months, it began to pop in certain areas when walked on. I mean a REALLY loud popping sound that wakes one up at night. It started in the den and has now spread to our bedroom. Someone told us the apply a board over the affected area and hammer it hard. That was no solution. Can anyone help with this maddening problem? Have others experienced this?

    Was there an expansion joint of 1/4" or so left open around all the edges? Does the floor seem to me lifting up (tenting) in some areas? Was the subfloor leveled ?

    Pergo is a wood laminate type of flooring meant to be installed as a floating floor.There were several stains on the carpet that had been caused by her Great Danes and these had to be covered with furniture.

    Every question that you have forwarded was carefully done including using a laser level on the subfloor. The wood is not tenting and looks good everywhere. Thank you for your input and trying to help. Barbara H.

    You didn't say, but I assume you are referring to the post by susiegreen62. Don't worry about the post. She's just a spammer on the loose.
