Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Great floor
I did my bathroom, hallway and laundry room. Looks great and very easy to install. It has been installed for two years now and still looks great. I am going back to HD on Monday to purchase more to install in the kitchen. I ripped the ceramic floor up this weekend and can't wait to get the Allure floor down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by marsha Looks nice!
We are getting ready to put our house on the market. We have been wanting to replace the kitchen flooring for a while but couldn't decide on what to replace it with. We live in a manufactured home and many of our friends (tile setters) told us not to use ceramic tile or wood laminate in the kitchen for various reasons. My husband is not a professional by any means but laid this whole floor by himself. Also, we staggered the pieces to make it look nicer - which also created more waste than otherwise would have.
1. Not all tiles came out of the box cut completely straight so getting the lines between tiles tight was not going to happen all the time. To fix this we got some tinted silicone caulk and filled in the lines. Not noticeable at all now.
2. We had a lot of waste due to cutting. Once you cut a piece to fit somewhere you can't really use the remainder.
1. Looks very nice and clean.
2. Easy to install
3. I read reviews prior and we did not need tin snips (although they were helpful for some cuts) and the glue is not as sticky as some say. I suppose if you stick it down hard and then try to move the tile won't budge but we were able to adjust tiles as we needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clynmocyk Very happy with this floor!
We live in a country home and our floors are uneven. We were limited with flooring options because of this. I absolutely love this floor. The material is very thick and the fact that the seams interlock like they do make it so much nicer than traditional vinyl floors. The only thing I will say as a negative- when they first laid the floor down I was focused on the seams showing in the floor. This was annoying to me at first. It doesn't bother me now. I think I was just super-focused on them in the beginning. If you think it will bother you, than go with an allure floor that has a design on the edge of the floor. That will take care of that problem! It's been four months and we haven't had a single problem with the floor. I am very happy with my decision.

We installed Sheridan Slate tiles in our kitchen one year ago. Love everything about them but, in the last 8 mos white spot have been showing more and more. They are by the kitchen table and chairs. I have felt pads on all furniture, so not to mark the flooring. What do you recommend for that fix? Is there a stain or marker I could use? Thanks, Kathie

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HomeOwner Good initial thoughts
Installed this product over the weekend in a utility room. Overall looks great and nice finish. Since the tile is relatively thick, I used tin snips to cut/trim and it was very straight forward - too hard with a knife. Now planning to do another room, compared to the wood based flooring i already purchased, because its easier than using a saw and less mess.
I want to see how the glue joints do over time. I'm hoping they hold up. Both top & bottom have glue on them and it definitely hard to pull them apart when you make a mistake.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gargoyle1210 Looks great, easy installation
This floor was easy to install. The adhesive is pretty strong so it's not as easy to get apart as the instructions make it seem so take care before connecting the two pieces. The instructions say you have a few minutes to carefully pull the pieces apart if you need to reposition, but it's still a bit of a struggle. I think it looks like real stone and it's easy to clean and easy to slide appliances around on. I had a cork floor previously and damaged it when trying to move my refrigerator.
I used a utility knife but thought there has to be something better. The floor is thicker than a normal vinyl tile so you have to make several passes to make a cut. Tin snips are a must so if you don't have anything sturdy enough to cut a thicker piece of vinyl, it is well worth the investment.
I am a little miffed that you cannot purchase individual tiles. I was three tiles short and had to buy an entire $45 box to complete the floor. The tiles don't come apart once installed so you can't use them for future repairs. What the heck am I supposed to do with the leftovers? Very wasteful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kingjames83 If you are going to replace your kitchen floor, USE THIS!
We were looking to replace our floor in our kitchen. My wife and I really liked the grip strip setup that the Allure had to offer. Although it was on sale, it is not "cheap" material. All you need is a utility knife with a sharp blade. Take your time setting up the seams because once it is set, you pretty much damage the tile if you try to rip it off again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jaqs Nice flooring looks great.
The flooring is just what we were looking for ,and in stock , looks nice and impressive only complaint is fitting with the glue edge exposed was more time consuming to fit if it has paper over exposed glue joints to pull off after fit, would have been helpful I used the thin paper sheeting that was between each layer up to help line it up adhering to each other .very nice product.
