Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYCO Great floor!
We laid this flooring in our home office a little over a year ago and it still looks great! I work from home and have a chair on rollers. You would never know that I roll over it all day long! We also have dogs, no toe nail marks. Seams stay tight. We just purchased the same flooring and are in the process of laying it our bedroom and master bath. Color is rich. Highly recommend, although it is not as easy as 1 2 3. It takes a while to get the seams tight. Recommend a block and a mallet to tap them in place.

I have only had the vinyl planks in for a week so don't know about how long it holds up, but is seems to be sturdy and doesn't scratch easily. I didn't install it myself, but had a man who had experience with laminate, and he said it is just as easy as laminate to install, and really easy to cut. The only waste was one piece about 18" long, out of 37 boxes. I ordered extra and didn't have to use it.
I like the way it feels to walk on. Soft and quiet.
I had the whole house done and it took him about 5 days including the preparation.
People have come in and asked it it is wood or laminate? No one thinks it looks like vinyl.
The customer service was good and it shipped fairly fast. The thing that is taking forever to get here is the mouldings.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by missyagogo Fantastic flooring for a DIYer
I recently decided to refinish my bathroom floor while the Mr. was at work this past week and used this flooring for the job. Our previous floor was 1" tiles that were cracking and popping up everywhere. After removing said tiles and checking the subfloor/attached underlayment for damage I made sure to sweep and vacuum very well. In total the bathroom is 11 x 8.5 with a few awkward areas that had to be tackled. If it had not been for making the rounded cuts around the toilet flange, I would have had the entire floor installed in less than 4 hours by myself!
All I used to make this happen was a tape measure, utility knife, and a straight edge; and like magic the floor went down. I honestly could not be happier with the color, texture, and overall quality of this flooring. On the topic of color, I will say that it is a bit darker in person that the picture online, however that could also be due to my monitor and/or the dye lot that was used. I will be using this material for my kitchen very soon.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by emarieman Great color choices and and an excellent finished product
We recently installed a laminate in a bedroom in my mother's farmhouse, but found the Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring to better accommodate our slightly uneven floors much more easily and beautifully! Wish that we'd started with the Allure planks!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NaeV Not as Easy as 1-2-3 but easy enough
At first, it seemed very difficult to install. It took two people to install one plank because of the locking system.
Locking the planks together is the most difficult by far. It easily comes undone when lifting to lock in place. Using a pounding block (for laminate flooring) to pound the seams together once locked in place, was a big help; made it more secure with no cracks. Do be careful not to pound too hard without pressure on top of the block, so you donât break the lip of the plank. I installed over wood subfloor, it easily slides. I took another reviewers advice & put little nails along the wall to use as spacers. After you get the groove of things - I did an entire room by myself but still isnt the easiest.
CUTTING - is simple - donât make it hard, get a Square & score the plank 3 times then snap it off. Donât be afraid of breaking it. I also used a miter saw to cut lengthwise. Other reviews said not to use one but I did & it definitely saved allot of time. You may need a new blade afterwards but itâs well worth it. Saw does make a big mess but easy clean up.
WASTE- hardly any. I installed almost 600sqft & ordered 1 extra box. I have that one extra box leftover.
Scratch RESISTANT- I have 4 dogs & I slid the hammer across the floor while working, didnât make a scratch. I accidently scraped a crow bar across the floor & it made a scratch but was easily scratched out with my finger nail.
END RESULT - Love the texture of the floor. I do wish the planks had more defined edges, so therefore it looked like real hardwood planks.To look at it, it looks more of a solid floor unless you get the right view with sunlight. It easily installed in my uneven door way. For my next flooring project, I think I will try the Allure Plus (stick tabs), maybe they are referring to that as Easy as 1-2-3.
FYI- The color of the floors in my picture is pretty dead on.
