Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â 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 5.0Â 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 5.0Â by LottaCats 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.

I was going for the beach look when I redid my house, not tacky shell-filled, just worn and faded. I thought this flooring would be perfect. I put it down in about 1300 sq ft by myself. I sprained my wrist trying to make sure the strips were adhered. The instruction about rolling it is a joke. If you don't get it set the first time, rolling is only going to reinforce your errors.
If you are a perfectionist, run. You'll never get the seams perfectly adhered or invisible. It's easy to put down in the middle of the room, but breaks easily when you try to do pieces that are about 1 inch wide. On those you may need to use carpet tape to stick it on the floor because you dont have a sticky strip. If you get a piece of dust under it as you put it down; it will look like a boulder and you will have to remove that plank and sweep it out.
My husband tried to convince me that it looks like the decks at the beach, so I try to believe it and go on. (Know that a store beginning with an I and spelled in all caps has great rugs.) Throw some down, get some curtains and furniture from that place, and your guests will love it for the vacation look year around.
It will never look or feel like real wood, but I'm learning to live with that. You'll want to use felt dots on the bottoms of everything; I even have them on my small trash cans. The first time the cats ran on it it, it got little scratches on it. Being a light color, they don't show unless you look closely sideways in the light. I do.
In summary, the big picture looks great, but the little details will drive a perfectionist insane.
