Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Looks good, easy to install
This floor is super easy to install. The main thing is to make sure the underlayment is completely flat. In my case, in order to get it to match the level of the surrounding floor, ceramic tile on one side and hardwood on the other, I leveled the underfloor with compound, then screwed down 5/8" MDF to the top of it and applied 1/8" cork to the top of that. Any cracks in the underlayment will eventually show up in this floor if you don't spend a lot of time getting that ready.
Once that's ready, all is well. These snap together and are reasonably flexible. It's easy to cut an end piece to size just by scoring it with a utility knife and snapping off the excess. Even strange cuts are fairly easy to make just by scoring the top of the tile and then snapping the unwanted bit off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by homeowner Best flooring if you have dogs as part of your family...
My husband installed this in just a couple of days, for him it was easy instillation as he has worked in the construction business for over 40 yrs. The only recommendation he would have is to keep your eye on what was already snapped together as you go because it tends to come apart behind you when you are snapping new pieces together. We have 3 dogs(2 German Shepherds and a small mixed breed). They can be very rough on flooring even in a very well managed household. We saw that this product was recommended for being non scratching and cleans easily. I have to say for the short time it has been down it appears to be just that. The flooring looks great and even makes our living room look bigger... We WILL be installing this product in other rooms of our home. There have been many compliments on its appreance already.....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Allure ultra vinyl plank flooring
We recently had a flood from a local river. Had 30+ inches of water in our home for 4 days. This flooring did not move or come apart. I cleaned up one of the planks and it still looked new. The laminate tile in the rest of our home swelled and popped up. Highly recommend allure ultra vinyl tile.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Disco MY BOAT NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD! So glad i did this project!
The carpet in the cabin of my boat (41-foot cruiser) had become too stained to clean. I wanted a change from carpeting but the flooring options from marine suppliers were all cosmetically disappointing to me. After searching many places for a better option I discovered Allure vinyl plank flooring. The appearance of this floor covering was superior to everything else I had previously looked at and the waterproof properties of the vinyl plank were compatible with the requirements for a boat installation. The unusual angles and curves of the cabin area also seemed like a good match for the easily cut vinyl material. After finishing the project, I couldn't be happier. The installation took some planning but once I got going things went very smoothly. The ability to cut the planks with a blade or heavy shears made the project significantly easier than if I would have had to use power tools. There are three hatches in the floor and I was able to easily cut these areas. I found some aluminum trim that worked great around the margins of the hatches and complemented the floor product well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillW Love this product! It looks so real!
The click style is a little more difficult to install than the grip strip but not a big issue. Much faster and easier than ceramic and the fact that it is so much faster saves money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcnielerini Great floor!
Had this installed for a month, so far it is great!
We purchased this floor after I ruined my laminate flooring from a washing machine overflow blunder. Now that our remodel is over I am so glad my laminate floor is gone! This vinyl flooring is wonderful! It is surprisingly warm underfoot and much quieter than I expected. The install took 2 people a full day to do (living/dining/hall) using 12 boxes. It was easy to score and snap with a utility knife. Cutting around door frames was more complicated but not too bad. We made a template from the perfect plank-sized sheets included in the packaging to cut the patterns out. Some of the planks took a little bit of muscle to snap together, but all in all it was pretty easy.
The floor looks great and is so much easier to keep clean than my laminate (which was always a 2-step process. When I cleaned my laminate I had to immediately go back and dry it to prevent water spots even when the floor was barely damp). The Allure Ultra does not show water spots at all saving me time when cleaning.
The floor looks great and we have received many compiments. The color and texture make it appear more like wood. Before purchasing the Allure Ultra we compared several other brands, we almost purchsed a similar loking product that was over $1 less per sq ft until we compared samples side by side. There was no comparison! The cheaper product scratched extremely easily while it took a lot of pressure and several scratches with a pair of scissors to scratch through the colored layer of the Allure. You would have to drag an extremely heavy and sharp object over this floor to damage it. The other product would have scratched through the color layer with a rock in your shoe!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RTS Not for anything but concrete base floors
Buckling and separating in controlled environment. Reinstalled twice and still have issues. Wood floor base. Customer service bad. Only warranty if on perfectly flat concrete. Spent over 7000.00 on purchase. Worst mistake of entire remodeling career
