No I haven't got it done yet.
When I went to the factory, they made up the new shoes with carpet on them. The cost for them was going to be about $150. The shoes were 1 X 6 s about 3 feet long with an angle cut on one side and covered with the material that is used to cover the floors of the service bay glued on. There were six of them as I recall.
Then when they were supposed to install them they came out and said they were afraid that the material would create too much friction running on the exsisting carpet and the slides would not function properly. I did not want to remove the cartpet until I got to my sister in law's place where I intended to install the Pergo, so I did not have them install the shoes and decided to rethink the whole thing.
I think I am going to install the Pergo this fall when we get back to my sister in law's place and leave the existing shoes in place. I plan to place some pieces of Pergo on the floor when we bring the slides in so the slides will run over it and not scratch the floor when they come in. That's what a friend does with his fiver to protect the laminate flooring he installed.
I will not use the transition pieces where the slides come in since I believe they might be too high for the slide shoes to get over them easily. I plan to put 1/4 inch slots along the edge of the Pergo where the slide come in over it and use flush screws to hold the Pergo down but still allow it to float. The slots will have a taper on the edges and I will use screws with tapered heads. The screws will be set to hold the flooring down and in place but still allow it to expand with humidity changes in one direction.
That's the plan at this point.
Alternatively I could remove the carpet, seal the floor with polyurethane and then go to the factory and have the shoes installed, then go to the sister in laws and install the Pergo.
(The reason for going to my sister in laws place to do the work is that I have access to a shop with a chop saw and a table saw plus a place for us to sleep while the work is being done.)
