I installed this product a few years ago and have been battling this product lifting and separating. Home Depot should not carry this!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 I love my new floor.
This Allure flooring looks really great. I really love the look. Did a bathroom first to see if I could do it myself. Then did my huge kitchen with lots of twists and turns. I am female and 75 years old. I did most all of it myself but did need help with cutting the Allure. The straight cuts were easy, the clerk in the store showed me how to score the top and snap it off. The Allure I choose has a pattern so to get it all to match up I had lots of odd cuts and needed help as I am not strong enough to cut the Allure with a wire snips. I also needed an extra box of Allure as you have a lot of waste when you have to match up a pattern.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lakirby The color really fits our bath well.
I guess this is a easy floor to put down, I really had no trouble, except the floor was too low for me. If we can figure out how to get it up to waist high, it would be perfect.
The floor really was easy, the cutting was a snap. I had several circular cuts, and came up with a great method. I used post it notes to go around the curve, then taped them together, pulled it up laid it on the floor. Then it's just trace and cut. Perfect every time!
I would highly recommend this flooring product. It looks great in my bathroom.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ahotesiii Not Sticky Enough!
I had a contractor install this for me, since my home was already under renovation by them. I've found that some of the seams have come up overnight, so I had to press them back into place and set some books on top of them.
If they remain to be a problem, my contractor will try to resolve the situation with a heat gun, but it shouldn't be that way if they were sticky enough!
I remain skeptical about this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weedo12 So far so good
I just finished laying a kitchen floor and it looks beautiful. This is kinda hard to cut but it's easy to put down. You have to be careful not to drag anything across it since it will make marks but it is very comfortable to walk on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by soybean Pleased with new floor
Overall, I am pleased with the outcome, even though my seams are not as perfect as I would like in some spots. Consistently getting tight seams seemed to be the biggest challenge with this flooring. The grip edges stick so quickly that separating tiles to try to improve your seam simply isn't always feasible. And, be aware that the 45 degree technique, as explained in the instructions is not possible where, for example, you are laying a piece that will go under a cabinet overhang. You need to improvise on technique in this situation, so plan laying of each piece carefully.
Also, the score and snap technique only works where you are cutting all the way across the tile. So, if you need to cut partial pieces to fit up against corners, around floor heat vents, etc., you need to use a different technique. I used a jigsaw for some such cuts but, if you do this, you must be sure to protect the grip edge of getting splattered with shavings thrown up by the jigsaw blade. If you do get some shavings on a grip edge, you may be able to pick them off with your fingernail.
Scoring requires care. I used a 4 ft. steel measuring stick and clamps to maintain a firm edge to guide my utility knife when I scored the tiles. As other reviews have mentioned, your scoring tool, such as a utility knife, can run off course, i.e. drift away from your guide edge, if not carefully done.
I installed my flooring over all sheet vinyl. Regarding the floating concept, I don't know how my floor can do any floating since a refrigerator and, kitchen range, and dishwasher all sit on parts of the new floor. Hmm, how could it float?
I ordered my tile online and had it shipped to my home. The shipment came with pre-printed labels for returning tiles if needed. I had 1 full box left after I completed my floor. I returned the extra box to the local store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Viper6 Great product
I have installed many floors from laminate to Pergo to ceramic to vinyl. This product is easy. Important Tips to remember:
Sharp razor knife blades
Keep product at room Temp for flexibility
Use drywall T square and a grip clamp
Use a pair of Tin Snips to cut small cuts around curved areas
When laying floor to avoid gaps place upper left corner first then roll left side to previous tile then flex tile to get a tight fit on the long side of the previous tile you will get a tight fit without having to lift back up.
I installed in my rental property because of the residential warranty being so long. If I get half the warranty I will be thrilled.
