Rated 5 out of 5Â by teacher66 Perfect for a music studio!
I put in the Saw Cut Dakota and it is beautiful! It was warm for the winter on a slab floor. I chose this floor for a music studio in my home which gets a lot of traffic from children coming from outside. It is performing much better than the hardwood did and it looks real, especially with an area rug added. Now I am putting the same floor in my living room. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by chrissiejo I LOVE MY NEW FLOOR!
I am a fifty something single woman who decided to tackle installing new flooring in my 1000 sq ft home by myself. After spending a couple months deciding on which product and which color, I selected the Allure Ultra Sawcut Dakota. I am about 2/3 completed with the project and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. It has been a challenge and I had to do a lot of learning as I went, but I will always know that "I DID THIS" when I look at the beautiful floor.
I have two very large dogs and a mother in a wheel chair and so far the flooring holds up great to all their activity. I accidentally scraped a pry bar across one of the planks and you can't even see that it is there.
Since I had no previous flooring experience, I am very thankful that I had read someone's review suggesting to have a rubber block to tap the seams. Maybe it is because I'm not strong enough, but I found it a bit more difficult to click together than some of the videos show. Also, when you have to place the last plank down under a door jam or around a wall there is often no way to get the 10 degree angle needed. I had to get creative and was able to figure it out. The planks were fairly simple to cut crosswise, but cutting lengthwise was more difficult. I clamped the plank and straightedge to a work table to score it, then used slipjoint pliers to bend the edge to snap the cut. (The pliers didn't leave a mark, either!) Warning - the cartons are HEAVY! I wish I had a helper - just to carry and open the cartons.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ben1849 Nice floor, easy to clean
Wife and I like the click lock, vinyl plank, Allure Saw
Cut Dakota flooring we purchased form Home Depot.
We were shopping for flooring 6 months ago, saw a sample of Allure Saw Cut Dakota and ordered 33 boxes. The price was OK and free shipping made it better.
We installed 600 plus square feet in living area, kitchen, hall and bath room. After 6 months still looks great, shows no wear, spilt liquid no problem.
Wife says cleaning is a snap. Just vacuum with an electric broom and damp mop as needed.
We purchased additional 200 square feet to go in bedroom and are installing it now..

After a lot of research and looking I replaced all of the carpet in my house with the Allure Sawcut Dakota. I have 2 dogs and the off white wall to wall carpet was about to get me down, but I had not found anything that would stand up to the wet, wear and tear the dogs give a floor until I found this. I didn't want wood floors that the dogs could not be on and I didn't want laminate. The Allure Sawcut Dakota was perfect. It doesn't scratch, is waterproof and easy to clean up after the dogs. Even though the Sawcut Dakota is textured, the dogs do slip on it a little, which I was hoping they wouldn't slip at all since they are 50 pounds dogs and I worry about their joints. I solved the problem by putting cut wool area rugs in every room for them and when it's muddy I just roll the rugs up and put them away. Between the rugs and their large dog beds they are happy campers which makes me a happy camper.
These floors really do look like old hand cut wood floors, just more durable. I choose Sawcut Dakota for the color, I wanted a variation in the color but I did not want a lot of red or gray. I have tried to attach pictures that show the true color of the floor, but by the time I post them on my computer and someone pulls them up on their computer I realize they may not show as they really are. At least I tried to show their true color. My best advice is get a sample of the floor before you buy as pictures don't always look the same as the real thing.
