Answer: 
No cushion necessary, and you can pull up your laminate flooring, but you can also lay this down on top of it. Since it is a floating floor, there is no need for glue or adhesive. There are adhesive strips built in, and they do not require any extra gluing...nothing in glued directly to the floor.

Answer: 
I would put it over your laminate floor, unless it is too damaged. The old laminate floor would serve as a moisture barrier. I had house rap which we installed on the plywood. We put that down before installing the flooring.
If your laminate is too damaged you will have to rip it out. You must put down a moisture barrier!
My wife installed the floors, and she did a great job!
Hope this helps?

This flooring will float over gradual humps (raised subfloor seems etc.), however if you have the means to remove humps/bumps you should... this can usually be done by planing the sub-floor down so that it's flat and gradual or by filling in low spots with levening liquid or even thin layers of overlapping tar paper as a last resort. If there's debris on the sub-floor, like a pebble or a nail sticking up, then the flooring will eventually get damaged (i.e. the pebble or nail will push through the flooring). This floor will install over any sub-floor surface including concrete. It is waterproof and the vinyl is very durable. Make sure to clean the sub-floor very well and thoroughly check for protrusions (popped nails etc.).

I had the Allure Ashlar installed by a professional handy man. The product is pretty thick for the price. It is also very durable. I recommend actually going to your local Home Depot and handling the product for yourself. I love my new floor! But, FYI, I had about 10 corners on the planks that didn't adhere well. I fixed them with Gorilla Glue and the floor is fine now. You can read my review. (KGarner). Read More

I fixed them with Gorilla Glue and the floor is fine now. You can read my review. (KGarner). The floor prep is VERY important! I live in a mobile home with 1/2" thick press board. My handy man had to do some prep work to even it out, repair damaged portions, build up spots with quick cement, etc. If you go to the Allure web site they have instructions, etc. The planks can be cut easily with straight tin snips.

Answer: 
This flooring is very thin - it's exactly the thickness of peel and stick 12" x 12" tile. It's about 1/4" thick. Floor preparation is the same as you would do for peel and stick tile. Clean and as level as possible is best. Be sure to read the reviews before using the product; those reviews will help.

Answer: 
It is probably 1/8". It went down quite easily. We put ours over a cement floor with little or no preparation.
We laid them out to see how they would end up on the sides. We lucked out and only had to cut on one side of the room.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 182 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy? Yes The logo on the box says, "The Easiest Floor Ever." That must be true if I can do it. I put this down in two bathrooms. The most difficult part was cutting out to go around the toilet. One should not remove the toilet to install the floor under it because it is meant to be a floating floor. The directions say to leave a small gap at the walls so that there is room for the floor to expand, if necessary with temperature change. I made a scale diagram of each bathroom to plan how to lay the pieces - strips across the short side of the room or along the long side. This style has fake grout lines so those need to be lined up properly for it to look right. Note that the first row has the "over-edge" removed so it will not be 12" wide as the other rows will be. In the plan shown, I started with the long side of the strip along the side marked "tub" and, if I had started with the side marked "wall" there would have been possibly as many as four pieces requiring cut-outs for the toilet. This is one consideration in deciding which wall you start on. Also, if I had planned for a full length at the top of the diagram that would have meant four pieces with cutouts. The hashed-out area in the lower right of the diagram is the space for the cabinet so I decided to cut the five strips that ended with short side up against the side of the room marked "wall" so that there would not be small pieces at the cabinet. At the door I had to make small cutouts for the door frame. It would have been better if I had cut the bottom of the door frame so that the tile slipped underneath it. Hint: in making the straight cuts the instructions say to score and then bend to break. That works very well as long as you can get a good straight score to begin with. I had difficulty because the straight edge tended to move as I was scoring. Using a clamp to prevent that would be advisable. If you make your score at the maximum length for a piece ending at the wall, then want to trim to allow for the gap, I found that a hand-held wood plane works nicely to trim the edge evenly. Just set it for a very small cut. The wall I have is tile all the way to the floor and the man at the store suggested using a moulding at the edge by wall or tub such as "5109 11/32 in. x 11/16 in. x 8 ft. PVC Composite White Prefinished Shoe Base Moulding" glued to the wall or tub and not the floor (a slight gap is needed to allow for expansion/contraction with temperature change). If you choose that method just be sure to not get wood - get the material that is moisture resistant. I also thought of using "Tub and Wall, Peel and Stick Caulk Strip" (comes in various widths and colors) - installed with the vertical part stuck to the tub and the horizontal part floating above the floor. I have not done either yet. Maybe I'll edit this when I have done one or the other or both. I figured that the room was too small to use a roller and too difficult to get in around the toilet so I did not use a roller on the seams, as per the instructions. I used a rubber mallet to pound the seams after laying them down. I will have to see if the adhesive holds with the method. I watched some videos on installing this material and took the advice "with a grain of salt." You probably could do the same. July 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SOOO happy with this purchase, perfect fit for our needs. VERY EASY to clean. We installed this ourselves over two days, without needing a lot of specialized tools. The price was great and we could put it directly over our existing floor, saving us even more money. We have a house that is 140 years old, so the floors are not level. The original pine floors were splintering and we didn't want to refinish them, since they had paint that might have been lead based. We didn't want to remove them since they were original to the house and some homeowner later on might have the money to restore them. This floor allowed us to keep the original floor and just go right over it with no glue required. The thickness and durability are great so far. We have had them for about a year, and they still look great, no gouges or peeling. My only complaint is that it is nearly impossible to not have small gaps between the 1x3 sheets. They are really small and not a big deal, but they bugged me at first. I'm over it now, because this floor is so easy to keep clean with just a sweeping. When mopping, the water barely gets dirty. I really hope that these last at least ten years, but even if they last just a few years, they cost about a fourth of the what it would have cost to put in roll vinyl just due to the floor prep required. I wish that some company in America would make this product, I really prefer to support American made products, but we were unable to find one like this that wasn't made in China. OVERALL VERY VERY HAPPY! Oh, forgot to mention, I regret putting porcelain tile in our bathroom because it is so cold and hard, these are much warmer and more comfortable on my feet. April 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely Beautiful This tile has a stunning appearance. I've read some other reviews that people claimed that it is easy to cut with a razor knife and a level as a straight edge, I do not entirely agree on that point. The tile is very slippery and holdinbg a level in place while cutting is nearly impossible. I used an old table and straight boards and C clamps to hold the tile in place, quite a bit more time consuming clamping on the cuts but at nearly $2 a square foot it's better to take the time than risk ruining the tile. It has only been in my kitchen for 24 hrs so I can't comment on the durability. My installation required cuts on every single edge, which was time consuming but other than that it was just a matter of lining up the grout lines and installed very quickly. When I was finished my wife and I stared at the floor for what seemed like hours. I did a good job and earned some hunny do brownie points for the beautification of our kitchen. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very attractive flooring at great price Very easy installation like a puzzle. I like that it does not glue to the subfloor Makes for easy uninstall for if I want to change look again in the future. Great price and flooring thick with great looking quality. July 5, 2016
