This being a "floating" floor installation how does it sound walking on it? Does it have a hollow sound to it while walking on it ?

This question is from Allure 6 in. x 36 in. African Wood Dark Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring (24 sq. ft. / case)

I'm concerned this being so thin will have a click click sound when you walk on it due to it flexing under the pressure of your feet since it is a floating installation

Our first installer put down only plastic sheeting under it and it slaps then for the adjoining room I found a thin foam underlayment to dampen sound. Makes a huge difference.

Answer: 
This flooring made my squeeky floor become super quiet and gave it a different sound than it was. Its alot quieter and almost feels like it loves you to walk on it. I live in a mobile home and my sub floors were bad so I put all new plywood down and it really quieted up alot. I love it.

The floating floor does not make a clicking or hollow sound, it sounds the same as any vinyl floor. It is called a floating floor, simple because it does not stick to the sub floor it is over.

You could do the inward cuts with a hacksaw, if that's all you had. So, just about any kind of saw, but I don't know what sort of shears or scissors could be used. Read Less

Answer: 
I would say absolutely. The product NEEDS to be at a temperature between 65 and 85 degrees to maintain durability and cohesion. I would assume as long as your radiant heat is maintained between those two parameters, it would make little difference how you heat your space.

I have an older home with radiant heat in a concrete slab. I installed this flooring a year ago in my kitchen and have had no issues whatsoever. The adhesive is still stuck, there has been no curling or bending or smells at all. As long as you have sufficient space between the heat source and the flooring you should be fine.

Answer: 
I would definitely not use this product on a heated slab myself. The coefficient of thermal expansion for vinyl is fairly high, and you would need to leave significant clearance between the flooring and walls to prevent buckling.
I would also worry about the integrity of the adhesive system.

We put it in our store 4 months ago and the smell is so bad that customers complain and leave, other tell us to call the energy company over a gas leak...it's bad.

I think installing it over a radiant floor is fine as long as the floor is level. Any job that turns out really nice is only as good as the base it's built upon.
This flooring is real nice, have an excellent simulated wood texture you can confidently walk on without having to worry about slipping.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 223 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pretty flooring Nice looking flooring that seems durable. Some of the boards were bent at the very ends, but we had enough to finish the project. I recommend opening the boxes as soon as they are delivered to make sure no damage has occurred. I think UPS stored the boxes vertically instead of flat and that is how the boards were damaged. Since we just installed the flooring, we will have to see how durable it is, but I really like the appearance and the price. I don't think I will ever do real hardwood again when there are products like this that look like wood and are more durable. August 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So Far So Good We just installed the flooring this past weekend, so far so good. The installation was not quite as easy as they made it seem but not too bad. Looks beautiful and cleans up easily. The real test will be when we move furniture and the dogs. If it can hold to both of those without getting tones of scratches or coming up, then I will highly recommend this product! May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE THIS FLOORING I am a older single lady who does not do any type of home remodeling. I waited three years to do my floors. I brought in three different people for quotes. The last gentleman was amazing and told me about this flooring. He explained how easy it was to lay and assured me that I could do this. I explained that I had no tools and he stated all I needed was a utility knife to score the flooring. I being very frustrated with my current floors decided to give it a try. I purchased the flooring online as they did not carry the color I choose in the store. The delivery came a week earlier that stated. (Which made me even more excited). Although it was time consuming (due to having a very large living room/ dining room combo), I love my new floors. They look beautiful. Many people have stopped by to see them and love them too. They are easy to keep clean. Very durable. and for the most part, VERY easy to install. Would highly recommend this to anyone. April 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bold Look This vinyl wood looked great in our house, we love it! Do not drag furnitures with sharp edges as it can leave a scratch. You can probably fill it in. Easy to clean! Cool on your feet on hot summer days. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One Two Theee as easy as ABC ! Love the wood textured look and the color is spot on for my decor. Laying the flooring was very easy. I covered the room in less then an hour. Thanks for making a product that is so easy to install. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The most beautiful diy vinyl planking! This particular style is so breathtaking, people who I've shown my project to can't believe how unique it is. The African wood can go with so many different decor options that it was difficult to not choose it. Working with the Allure Resilient Plank Flooring was great, and I am a beginner at installing flooring. The instructions are straightforward, all you need is time and opportunity. There's no reason to pass this up beyond it being out of your budget, but even so, it's worth it. I made a brief tutorial on YouTube to help out indecisive shoppers. I would suggest this product a thousand times over. https://youtu.be/37xqbrFA_XU June 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of the best Premium Vinyl Floors in the market Used in a duplex rental. Is durable and is a selling feature. Use a chop saw when doing cuts when possible and halfway cut with knife when not. This product is sensitive to subfloor prep. Make sure to remove bumps or debris before installing. With any flat surface floor realize that putting it in all rooms leaves no secrets throughout the house - sound travels. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! This is the fourth floor we have installed using this resilient flooring and we were pleased again! The grip strips make the flooring easy to lay and the material is easy to cut. We also are very pleased with the appearance of the African Dark Wood. We wanted something with light and dark tones and this is beautiful! March 1, 2016
