Decided to replace the carpet and due to the cost of hardwood we decided to go to laminate. After installation the floors looked pretty good. My molding got banged up a bit and there are some good gaps between the laminate and molding. I have learned to despise the product itself, mainly due to noise and how it gives if subflooring is the least bit uneven although we hoped the upgrade in padding which we purchased would have prevented this. This I feel should have been addressed by the installers. I would not recommend this product at all. Will never purchase laminate flooring again. After calling Manisota Flooring there appears to be no solution except maybe sliding cardboard under uneven areas.
