Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TL Attractive, great DIY tile
Great looking vinyl tile flooring. Installation over sound subfloor requires only a tape measure, utility knife, heavy duty shears, straight edge, and pencil. I did two bathrooms so a lot of cutting relative to total square footage installed. Tough and thick material but reasonably easy to make neat cuts. Tight fit and good adhesion means minimal seam visible.
Note: it is a floating floor and is designed for molding along walls that hold it in place while allowing some movement. What if no molding? I called manufacturer customer service and they recommended double sided carpet tape along wall edges. Caulking OK in wet areas like a bath but generally not recommended. Time will tell about how this holds up.
One of the four boxes was slightly mashed on one corner resulting in a damaged corner on all the tiles in that box. This color was special order. Remote location. Anyhow, because of all the cutting and trimming in this application, I was able to work around the damage. Still, it shouldn't have happened.
It has only been installed two months so I can't really evaluate durability, but the vinyl tiles are thick and appear tough.

Recommended by our "handyman" and have found the product to be excellent. We will use the same material for replacing the vinyl in the kitchen.

The flooring is beautiful, looks very high-end. But we haven't installed it yet so we can't really rate ease of installation or overall rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MuttwalkerB Good quality and value
Thick (1/4") tough vinyl. It looks like it will last for decades. Because of its thickness, extra care is needed when scoring and cutting when short pieces are needed. It looks great once installed by this first timer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SW Great look & easy to install
I am a do it yourselfer and installed this in a bathroom and adjacent walk-in closet. I really like the floating concept. No glue, paste, or peel off backing was a joy to work with. This tile is extremely easy to install. So easy to cut by just scoring with a utility knife a couple times and fold. It snaps cleanly at the cut. Not so easy when you have to cut odd angles like around corners but with careful measuring and multiple cuts it can be done.
I gave it only 4 stars for two reasons. First, it has a 25 year warranty which sounds great but I am slightly concerned how the sticky glue edges will hold up for that length of time. Especially when the inevitable sink/bath/toilet overflow happens. I guess time will tell. The second reason I gave it only 4 stars is because after installing, there are a few hairline cracks along some of the edges for just an inch or two. I thought I was very careful handling the individual 1'X3' pieces by the underside middle of each piece so as not to bend the edges so I am not sure if it was me or if the hairline cracks were there out of the box. Either way, it is why I only gave 4 out of 5 for quality and the overall rating.
Enough of the technical stuff. I really like the look and feel and would definitely purchase it again. I also recommend adding the extra 10% square footage to your project size when you order.
