Default Installing pergo under heater

I am installing "naturals" style Pergo in my kitchen. I have existing hot water baseboard units on my walls. Is it ok for the Pergo to be installed under these heaters? Top of floor will be about 1/4" from bottom of heater. Or should I finish the Pergo off before going under? Will condensation be a major problem?

Default Hmmm

Try installing a test piece first....see what happens.
The Manufacturer may want it a certain distance away. The only other issue could be the air circulation under the heater, there needs to be space to create convection or your heat will suffer.

Posting a picture will help.
