Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FixxerMan Great looking product
Great looking product very easy to install and control the seams with the new GRIP-STRIP technology. The adhesive on the GRIP-STRIP is very strong yet it will allow you to realign the seam if you haven't already rolled it with the seam roller. The only draw back that I encountered was when you a saw or any type of power tool to cut the end length the debris from the product gets stuck to the GRIP-STRIP and you have to try and pick it off or run the risk of having a seam that will have lumps under it. Sure beats putting down one square at a time you get a much cleaner look and tighter seams. GRET PRODUCT!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYgirl Worst floor ever
This floor curled up on the edges shortly after we installed it. It was the worst stuff ever. Couldn't wait to replace it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Duhcamino Still happy after 350 square feet
After I finally figured out where to start the Tiles in my room it was pretty easy and went fast when just running rows of tile. It got a little tricky as I was trimming around walls and in and out of doorways but all in all I am pleased with the application and ecstatic with the appearance of my new floor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DGNH Looks great, tough to work with
Just installed these vinyl tiles in one bathroom, will do another one the next weekend. The floor does look rich, and from the installation experience there are reasons to expect toughness and resilience to wear.
Now about the installation. I DIY-ed many floor types, and this is far cry from the "The easiest floor ever!" as the box says. The reasons:
- it is very dense and hard (which is not a very bad thing later when installed), takes muscles and weight to cut through it, dulls utility knife blade very quickly.
- I expected the glue strips to be be covered with a film or parer to be taken off before the install. But to my surprise they are exposed right off the box. So you have no chance to apply the sheets to each other to check the fit, whether you cut them right.
- The second problem - the exposed glue strips pick dust, dog hair, cut debris, everything. So you have to keep your workspace as clean as a smartphone assembly line.
- Better forget about disconnecting and reapplying the sheets as manual suggests. I tried, it didn't work - the glue strip snapped. You have one shot only to install it. And there is no option to correct the small imperfections with a mallet, as you can do with laminate. So you need to be a sniper, with a cool head, sharp eyes and steady hands to make it look good.
Couple of advises:
- get a large enough sheet of cheap plywood to use it as a cutting table
- the irregular shape cuts are easy to do with the oscillating tool. Just watch out for debris landing on a glue strip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pm Awesome, supper easy!
This stuff was so easy to install, I was too worried about prepping the floor in my laundry room, with it going over the existing vinyl flooring. No need, just make sure its flat and level and the Allure will go right over it.
It's really thick stuff and the surface seems like it's going to last a long time.
Will be getting more to do my bathroom.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CharlieandMary The Hard Way to Cover A Floor
We have done a lot of DIY flooring in our house including composite planks and self-stick tiles. These 12 x 36 pieces were the most difficult. We choose this brand because they are water-resistant and our project was a small bathroom. However, they provide sticking surfaces only to each other and only along two edges. Laying the strips required constant geometric finagling to make them fit the room and still adhere to each other securely. After installation, the instructions say to get a 75-100 pound floor roller (Rental: $15 for 4 hours) to smooth the strips down. The point was lost on us since only the edges could be rolled, but we did the room in about a half hour anyway. The tiles were not designed to adhere to our pre-sealed concrete floor other than as noted, so rolling did not do much to improve adhesion.
We like the appearance. The Red Rock pattern we chose is one of their most expensive. You can only buy a full box (about $46), so if only an additional strip or two is needed, you'll wind up with unneeded extras. We wound up piecing some together rather than buy another whole box.
It's too soon to know about durability. A job that took a half day with peel-and-stick tiles took four days with this product for the reasons stated above. In summation: they didn't offer any advantages worth the extra trouble in application.
