Pcs slipped in tight together -- of these oh-so-slight flipped edges, it turned out, were at heaviest walked thru. We used a heavy roller & balanced wts for sev'l days; tried to get answer from several HD employees (flooring specialists) re what glue; tried to ascertain from mfger. When adjacent pcs well secured -- attempts removing results in catastrophe = torn, breakage, plus adjacent become effected. Remarkably, a couple of the "specialists" said even the floor installed with w/o gaps and w/smooth seams will begin to flip within a few yrs. WOW! Will say, didn't have problem of esp tongue fragility & breaking, or angle dropping in place w/o gaps - which makes it even more disconcerting regarding future "flipper" weakness of this product & NO HD recommended repairing product or glue!!!

OK, on normal installation over perfect sub flooring, no glue is needed. However, no job is perfect. On a recent installation over concrete with a tarpaper barrier - we ran into a problem. Keep in mind that this was a renovation being prepared for a rental unit. One of the boxes we opened had a slight imperfection, the corners were turned up on one end. We were under the gun time-wise as tenants were moving in. We probably should have gently heated the turned-up edges and let them lay flat before we installed them, but we were in a rush. We ended up using Liquid Nails and placing a weight on them to make them lay flat. So again, under perfect conditions, no glue. Under realistic conditions - do what you have to do. Read Less

I did not use glue when installing it, it is meant to be floating. But I had to use caulk on some of the seams due to the difficulty of lining up the pieces together. The other worry is that if you get any of the adhesive seams of the tile dirty, then they will not stick to each other. The seams are not protected as received so I used tape to protect the seams from dirt before installing these tiles. Read More

Answer: 
You don't need glue. You NEED to follow directions carefully. Customers suggest glue as a fix when their flooring starts lifting away from other strips. Their flooring does this, I think, because the installation was not done correctly.

It won't look very nice trimmed around the outside of the toilet base. If I can just trim around the flange plate with plenty of clearance, it seems it'll be nicer looking.... unless that screws up the expansion issue. Bathroom floor is only 6' x 6'

Oh easily, providing certain conditions are satisfied. Is your floor without any abrupt high or low spots? Is the environment fairly constant in temperature (within +/- 30 degrees)?
If there are any ridges or low spots (say, from water damage), sand them off or use leveler. The Allure is pretty thick, forgiving minor deviations in the average plane of the surface, but it will eventually show major high/low spots where it is walked over a lot.
The really nice thing about it, is that the Allure sticks to itself, not the subfloor. It doesn't stick to the hardwood -- so, if it's ever removed, no adhesive residue will be stuck on the hardwood.
My suggestion is to choose a pattern that will hide scuffs and scratches -- one that is not very dark; one that has a random type of pattern. That way, any wear will not be noticeable. Sedona is a good choice.
If you want to add value, add an underlayment...suggested for colder climates and noise abatement. Underlayment will add insulating and noise-reducing properties. Underlayment is not necessary, though, if the underfloor is level and smooth.
I love this Allure stuff. Read and follow the directions. Use tin snips or heavy-duty scissors to cut odd angles/shapes. Much better than the score-n-snap method.
Good luck. You can do it. Read Less

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 280 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Durable, Almost Perfect, But ! Have this installed by my contractor and some done by myself to several rental baths, laundries, and kitchens. Yes, the seams & corners may separate slightly if the glue from the pack is not fresh or got contaminated during installation. For those with strong hands and fingers you can cut the tiles with a sturdy sharp box cutter knife and a straight guide. But if you have weak hands & fingers like me (arthritis joints) you can cut it with a jag saw. You will found the jag saw very handy for those not so straight and curve cuts. The important first step is to check and mark the squareness of the room. So the end or side edge pieces can be custom measure & cut to blend into the crooked area to put the finishing touch. Always bring some heavy duty glue whenever doing floorings especially the ones with self adhesives. For the problem areas apply glue and set weight on top for overnight. Add more glue if necessary. Seals all wall and fixtures edges with GE silicon caulking or similar products to prevent water entering & damage the subfloor by unsuspected users. (water overflows,splashes, spills, leaks are very common) Don't rely on decorative wood trims to seal the edges. This product can take lots of abuse where other products would fail during the real life torture usage in the life of rentals (no love). Yes, this is not a 100% perfect product in this not so perfect world. But close. September 2, 2016
