Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigBDogGuam Really Nice in Guam
Looks good, feels good and though not finished it is doing exactly what I wanted to do. Installing over ceramic tiles. Have to agree that installing can be tasking and for a large area it does take two. The use of a rubber mallet helps in getting the pieces to click just right, but only in areas where the tiles are a little off. Also, would recommend that Allure make 12" and 24" strips as sometimes the off set can be more than 30" thus having a lot of center sections. This can be remedied by laying down "practice" rows, but when going from room to room in a continuous lay it becomes not workable. Live in Guam and so far our high temperature and humidity has not caused any problems when going from open windows to Air Con.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy2 Simple to install but not always easy
The directions don’t tell you the secret of installation— that no tapping is needed (by and large). You should not have to force the Allure Ultra planks together. When they are aligned properly, they fall right into place and seal perfectly without any gap. Play around with a couple planks until you get the feel for it, and it will save you you a lot of labor and time. The only place I needed to tap the planks together was where a plank was partially trapped under a door jam and could not be raised up to lock in place (see photo below).

THIS IS THE THIRD ROOM WE HAVE DONE IN OUR HOUSE. MY HUSBAND AND I LOVE THIS FLOORING AND HOW EASY IT IS TO INSTALL. WE REALLY LOVE SAVING THE MONEY BY INSTALLING IT OURSELVES TOO. I JUST WISH THEY MADE THIS 20 YEARS AGO. WE LOVE HOME DEPOT TOO.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeighAnne Looks great and it's so easy to clean
We ripped out carpet and installed this over 3 weekends in 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. We have laid a little tile before, but this was our first experience with click in flooring. It took the first room to figure out how it really works. Once we borrowed a friend's miter saw and dremel it got much easier!!!! What worked best for us was one person on the ground to place the planks and another standing on the other planks to keep them from moving. The areas around the door frames were a challenge as was the bay window. We did not want to use quarter round, but we realized that it was necessary and laying the floor went so much faster. Do not buy the Allure transition pieces!!!!! Our vinyl touches both tile and hardwood. We purchased and cut Allure transition pices and thankfully found the hardwood transitions before installing. The Allure product is way too high!!!!! I feel like our whole house is so much cleaner without carpet. Spills just wipe right up and we can wet mop it when needed!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AllureHater Looks great. Terrible to install.
It is nearly impossible to get this product to click in properly. One end clicks in and the other end pulls out slightly leaving the seem exposed. Try tapping that in with their block and then the plank two planks down come loose. They recommended painters tape on the seem. Are we really supposed to spend $100 on painters tape to hold down seems on 300 square feet of flooring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NColonna Easy to Install and Durable
I'm a contractor. The flooring was installed over DriCore. It went in relatively easy, you just need to make sure the pieces snap together PERFECTLY, leaving absolutely no hairline gaps. There's no going back to fix anything. It's a bit tough to tuck it under door jambs, as it doesn't like to slide when the pieces are interlocked. Having 2 people really helps for these type of areas. I found transition strips that matched relatively well, but I was disappointed that exact mach transitions were not sold in the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by retired01 Refacing my cabinets .......
Not sure if anyone else used the clear cherry flooring as I did. I had old style cabinets thru out the house, kitchen bathroom laundry room, and bar cabinet....I knew it would cost a lot to have someone reface them for me...so I decided to do it my self......I bought enough flooring to do the cabinets doors and did them all in the clear cherry...had to use an adhesive to glue them on then trimmed the edges and stained to match.....I then took rustic elm and refaced all the rest of the cabinets.....it looks GREAT...everything went on good and stayed in place when using the correct adhesive....the wife really likes the look instead of the old printed on wood grain in those 35 yr old style cabinets...it looks and feels like real wood...I had no experience in doing any of this...easy to do and work with....if anyone else wants to reface their cabinets good cheap way to do....all in all it cost me about $600-700 a lot cheaper than hiring someone to do it for you.
