Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GreatGrann Could Not Be More Pleased! Read whole review.
We have used this product in four previous rental properties, using the Oak color which looked great. It gives enough of a wood look and feel to forget it is vinyl. The Oak is a stock color and the usual price is 1.79 sf. The in stock colors are few and either light or dark, and in my opinion, poor choices. We used the Oak because it was really the only usable choice.
With this last property which was a significantly better property than our previous ones, I begged to be able to use different decorative colors. We used an American Chestnut stain on in stock unfinished Oak cabinets. The Oak color just would not work. I chose the Piedmont Ash. I needed a light floor to balance the darker cabinet color. It turned out so beautiful! I really made a home too pretty to be a rental, but I just could not help myself. The flooring is stunning, the color is perfect. But the price is 2.09 s.f. which I don't understand. I made several more expensive purchases for this project, and the choices made everything look much more rich and better quality.
We are having problems with just one property with the planks coming up. It is coming up in the living area and in one bedroom, not in moisture areas. One call did not give much assistance, a second call was very helpful and is sending free a glue to help resolve the problem. The explanation for the problem was a moisture issue from the slab. I actually think that may be true. Upon their recommendation we installed this product with a 6mil plastic underneath the product.
Even with the few issues we have had, I would highly recommend this product. We have considered laminate, but are petrified at the idea of wet spills. We don't worry with this. My own home is in a state of flux. I have concrete floors. I have been THIS close to installing it in my home while the old man has been out of town. If I had done it 7 years ago, I would have enjoyed my world so much more. Oh how I wish I had. I am a female and 56 years old and could install this myself. You definitely need the cutting tool, and we rented a weighted roller to really seal the strips for $10/day. Well worth it. This product installs easy, looks great, is waterproof and vey practical, and can be budget friendly. We will be using it again in just a few months on the next project.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AWright Very disappointing
After laying the flooring we were very happy with the way it looked and were in the process of finishing the installation when we noticed that after 1 month it started to separate at the joints and it kept getting worse and worse as time went on. Needless to say we returned all the unused flooring for a refund.
We are now in the process of looking for a different option as this was not the way to go.
We loved the color the look but not the results. Use at your own risk!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Madman370 Why did I wait so long?
Ordered online and UPS delivered my new flooring within 4 days. A buddy and I installed my kitchen in about 6 hours (old house and the walls are not square). I hosted a party the following weekend and received tons of compliments. The flooring looks great, was very easy to install, seems durable and fit my budget. I have not noticed any odors (some reviewers have mentioned a strong odor). So glad I decided on this product, just wish I had done it sooner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DMBlover Beautiful and easy to install!
I'm a 32-year-old single mother and was able to install this flooring myself. It was very easy to work with. I had one broken plank in the box, but I didn't need it anyway. The only tools I needed were a utility knife, pencil, straight edge, and measuring tape. I plan to install this in another bathroom in my home. It's also comfortable under your feet. :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pepperhill56 Really is the easiest floor ever!
Just finished installing this a few days ago. I had a friend help me because I can't stay down that long together with me helping hand planks and doing clean up as we went. We put this down in about 5 hrs. For a 20 x 11 room, a small hallway,with a small closet plus a large walk in closet. The closets took longer because of the doorway cuts they involved. It look great feels good under our feet. Looks like a wood floor but truthfully not as nice as hard wood but as good as plank floating floors. Have no smell problems and we were happy there was very minimal waste in our job. Just remember you have to use factory cuts so the planks we cut at the end of a row we used the cut end to start the next row helping with the staggering wood look factor and more secure laying planks down. It was very stick and care must be given on matching one plank to the next but it is easy to master. Neither of us had ever done a allure floor before my friend had done floating locking floors but thought this was easier and nicer to work with. No marks on the floor after I moved the furniture back into the bedroom which I ( a fifthyish women) did my self with help of sliding furniture moving disks. So far it has been wonderful. No complaints. Very very happy my husband and I just love this so far and see no signs of problem that can arise in the future unless it lifts. Fingers crossed.

We installed this about a month ago." It was easy to install as the other reiews note. The flexability really helps with installation. Just be sure not to jam it up against your walls or molding. We have had a couple of pieces pop up. We are going to redo some of those pieces. Other than that we love it. The color was just what I wanted. It hides dirt and our white dog and cat hairs. Cleaning is a breeze.
I have two suggestions: 1. they need floor transition pieces that match. 2. They need samples of the other colors that they offer. We were very nervous about ordering something sight unseen.
It does not leave a film after you damp mop it like Pergo and other ones do. That was a big sale point for us. The 25 yeat warranty is rare too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CatLover Love my new floor
Was looking for a pet-friendly floor...waterproof, good looking, comfortable, not too pricey and DIY. This floor meets all my requirements and looks great.
I am a 50 year old woman that was able to lay this myself in a weekend (15x20' room).
Liked it so much, I'm going to do my kitchen and laundry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by magpie One Allure room done--three to go
Overall, Allure is great! It appears to be more vulnerable to furniture scratches than I expected. This can be avoided with proper preparation.
