Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 2016floor Shows dusty footprints & indentions
My husband and nephew laid this floor in our basement, directly on top of f the concrete.
PROS:They said it was easy to cut and lay. We chose the teak color to match our cabinets, which is a beautiful color.
CONS:This color shows any dusty footprints from your shoes. We are constantly using a swifter to remove them. Also, the details said it was scratch & skid resistant, we have "scratch indention's" from rolling the refrigerator into the room, and we think some were made by the knee pads our nephew had on when laying it. They won't come up and are there permanently. We spent about $900 for this floor and regret our choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BMichael Great product - Easy Installation
I bought this product as a "quick fix" after buying a fixer upper. I installed it in one of the bathrooms as a test to see how durable and how realistic it looks. It's definitely durable, waterproof (I spilled a ton of water RIGHT after installing it while trying to install the toilet lol), and looks amazing. I changed the whole look of a bathroom in a matter of hours. Can't wait to try this flooring in the rest of my house.

We laid this flooring in all but one bedroom, due to busted waterline that ruined carpet in rest of house. That was 2011. We decided to enclosed garage, , 2016, expand master bedroom and add full bath. Enclosure added 260 sqft. Was scared that we would not be able to match the old with new, but this product, style, color, all match, after 5 years. Not that I want to spend the additional money, and the fact that we are to move in 3 months, we have decided to go ahead and lay the last bedroom with this flooring, just because this is such a quick and easy product to work with.

Sometimes it's helpful to hear from someone who has had the product several years. We have had our allure down for four years now. We found the installation to be quick and easy. The only minor drawback on installation was cutting the material with a utility knife. The flooring is tough stuff, so enough pressure must be exerted to cut it properly. It will snap (much like sheetrock), but a decent cut needs to be made first in order for that to happen. Installation was relatively quick regardless.
Since installation the allure has performed great. It does scuff at times, but the scuffing doesn't really detract from the overall appearance very much, because the floor can be mopped with no negative effect on the plank surface if the scuffing is minor, and eradicated for the most part with after-installation surface "renewal" products, offered by both TrafficMaster and other vendors. Our flooring looked stellar after renewal, which we used only after over two years of use. In areas where chairs are constantly being moved, you will notice more scuffing than that from ordinary foot traffic. Here the floor renewal products help markedly.
We did notice slight indentations to the surface when the flooring was first laid and a refrigerator was moved, but these went away after a week or so. Nothing seems to have been permanent with respect to objects causing any indentations. However, there is one aspect that needs to be mentioned as far as degradation of surface area. If you puncture the surface, you may incur a white underlayment spot which is somewhat difficult to hide. It doesn't colorize well for purposes of hiding the spot because the underlayment appears to be a plastic-like material of some sort. I didn't spend lots of time looking for products to hide the small spot, because it was very small and not discernible to most people (It happened when a knife was dropped on point). If I looked hard enough I'm sure I could find something to place on the spot, but be aware. If you gouge the surface for any length and remove the surface area, you may have to replace the entire plank (individual planks can be replaced). An interesting "downside" to the plank - we noticed that the surface was completely removed when we had an oil-based electric scent device leak it's oil onto the floor. I don't know why. We simply replaced the plank.
Overall, we are very pleased with the Allure and will use it in the future. In fact my daughter is planning on using it at her business location, which gets quite a lot of foot traffic. The 25 year warranty only applies to residential installations, so she will have to use Allure Ultra to get a 10 year commercial warranty.

I did some reading before buying this product and was satisfied that it would be well suited to my conditions.(Florida air conditioned home with cement slab floor)
I was able to tile a 330 S.F. area alone in just under 5 hours including cleanup / vacuuming.
The tiles are easy to work with with just a straight edge and razor knife.
I've used threshold strips for the front and back doors and where the tiles meet the existing kitchen tiles, but have decided to not install the quarter crown molding on the side walls as planned because I was able to lay down such a straight line that it looks finished as it is.
If you factor in the cost of the other items you'd need to lay down any other floor of this quality, the cost seems very decent.
I used the "TEAK".
There is no smell associated with this product.
The surface is smooth and slick. My dog has issues with walking on it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tired I like the flooring, but I believe you purchased seconds. I had several pieces in the box that were not cut evenly.
As I said before I believe that you purchased seconds from the vinyl dealer. The width of the planks were not even and some of the planks had too much glue while others had little.
