According to the instructions, if there is an eighth-inch or more of variance in the smoothness of the existing floor (eg, tile grout, in your case), you'll need to apply a skim coat to the ceramic to level it off.

You could try to just lay a sample of the plank (without attaching it in any way) and walk on it. If you can feel a difference in the plank when you walk over the grout lines, you'll definitely want to skim coat. I laid the planks over existing sheet vinyl that had a slight height change in the fake grouting, but it didn't affect the plank installation. Read Less

Answer: 
You could certainly put this over ceramic because it is a free floating floor. The only problem I see would be the added depth might make your doors drag. You might have to shave a bit off the bottom of your doors. One nice thing is that it won't hurt your ceramic tiles so you can always go back to them later.

Answer: 
I don't think I would lay it over ceramic tile unless you would be willing to fill in all the indented grout areas. It is a vinyl and will sink into the grouted areas and show thru. I don't blame you, white tile would drive me nuts. I have 3 large dogs and this flooring takes a lot and still looks beautiful. I love it.

I am not a flooring person but I would think that even though there is a thickness to the Allure flooring, the texture/ridges from the tile would eventually make an imprint in your Allure.

The backing to the Allure is a very flat/smooth surface and not forgiving. Instead of re-doing the floors, perhaps painting the walls a vibrant or saturated color, new window treatments, or countertops. If you want to change the floors without removing the tiles, maybe a washable/sisal rug that could be easily removed or cleaned.
I would suggest asking a contractor for better advice. I hope this helps or gives more food for thought on your situation. :) Read Less

Answer: 
Hey there Brenda,
It certainly can. You need to made sure that the tile is in good, solid condition first and that no tiles are chipped or broken. Your grout lines also cannot be deeper that 1/8" or else the flooring may fail. If your grout lines are any deeper, you will need to skim coat over your flooring with a self-leveler first and then proceed with the installation.

Answer: 
If the warping is really bad, you should pull the old nails and sand the area. Then re-nail the area using a wider head nail. Allure can bend to fit but if the bend is a lot the product may try to pull apart over time.

Answer: 
No,the material is stiff enough to cover over small indentations such as that, but any indentations spanning more than 2-3 inches would be advisable to put leveling product. However protrusions MUST be eliminated no matter how small, especially if near a seam.

Answer: 
our rule of thumb is 3/16” over 8’ for levelness or tolereance. You can use a self leveling compound first. Custom makes one that is sold in Home Depot. You can also fill in the areas with putty if they are small areas.
I hope that helps....

Answer: 
The Allure Plank flooring if a "floating" floor and needs a smooth subfloor. You will be able to feel any irregularities in the subfloor through the tile and so you'll need to fill or at least level any warpage you have with your sub. You probably don't need to spend a lot on the compound. Something as simple as Water Putty will apply easily and sand smooth with a belt sander.
Good Luck.

Answer: 
I take it that you are maybe working with two different heights? Home depot sells a transition strip that has a step down in it and is fairly flat. If you don't like the idea of that you can make one yourself if you own a table saw, and the plus there is that you can choose what type of wood you would like to use.

Not exactly sure how to answer as it depends on if you are transitioning from a living room to dining room or bathroom, etc. I used a metal piece to transition from the plank floor to the wood floor, but then my plank floor was about 1 inch higher than my wood floor, which was from the kitchen to the dining room. I used a nickel colored piece. Hope that helps.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 102 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE this floor!!! Easy to install, gorgeous and great priced. Our kitchen floor had been sealed due to asbestos and the vinyl flooring glued down so we were limited in our options. We chose this floor because it floated and we could put easily over existing floor. My husband and son installed it. It's awesome. I will use this product again when we do the bathroom !! June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allure flooring is great ! We have done our entire house in Allure and love it ! Everyone thinks it's really tile. Just don't steam clean it. Highly recommend this flooring ! May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks Good! The colors are rich. It was an excellent purchase. One small caveat: the vinyl is slightly textured and this adds to the appearance but makes it a little harder to clean with just a damp mop. However, even realizing this now, I would not be hesitant to purchase this again. May 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great This flooring is nice. It seems to be very resilient. We had to purchase it to patch a floor in a bathroom in a house we just bought. It was super easy to install and looks great. October 4, 2015

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks nice and is easy to install. Looks nice. Install was pretty easy. My only problem was when I opened one of the boxes I found half of the tiles were broken on one end. The tile had to be special ordered and I didn't want to wait two more weeks for more tiles to finish my kitchen. I was able to use the good part of the broken tiles to finish the ends of the roles.
