Rated 5 out of 5Â by nancy3223 Love the look and the ability to self install
This was the flooring I settled on when looking for something for my bathroom that was waterproof, durable and did not require a contractor to install. Although pricey for plank flooring this particular color, texture and pattern of wood grain was very realistic looking so worth the cost in my opinion.
First off, I was able to install my entire floor by myself and am a 48 yo female with only minimal DIY experience. The other complaints about the locking grooves not working or being difficult I found were correct. It is not a piece of cake to get the planks to snap together correctly but once you get the hang of it there are small adjustments and tweaks you can do make the snapping process quicker and easier. If the planks pull apart at all that means they are not locked and DO NOT go any further until all previous planks are securely locked into place.
What I liked best about the planks is they are easy to trim and cut out shapes. Scoring the back and snapping along the cut is as easy as directions state. Trimming and shaping small pieces take a bit of work but using pliers to snap off small notches and cut outs makes the task easier. The finished floor looks fabulous. It's so nice and realistic looking I'm planning on doing my kitchen and hallways next.

this is a great product, however I am presently half way through an install and the product is again out of stock. I would call ahead and be careful what style you choose as they have issues keeping this in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kerryh Good Product
I was satisfied with the looks of this floor. the installation is more difficult than peel and stick vinyl but not super difficult (the tile looking version is more difficult because it is shorter and more rigid). My husband and I installed 7 boxes in an evening. score and snap does work as easy as instructions say. my one concern is that after some time and use a few of my tiles seem to be pulling apart from each other. this could be because they weren't installed securely, or because they are laid on top of floor planks in a house that was built in 1901. Either way I pull up the quarter round on that side and can typically push the planks back together from the edge.

I've installed other Allure floor systems with which i have been more than satisfied with. I thought that by up grading to a thicker floor material (not to mention a much higher price) that i would be getting an even better quality floor,not so. This floor did not go together well,after a few pieces i realized from milling there were small cuttings left in the groove that prohibted the the product to firmly set,so this ment clearing every piece. Also the durabilaty if the product is very poor,this floor showed signs of scratching within the first hour of use. I would not reccomend this this line allure to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Car13 Great alternative to laminate wood
Easy to install. Great product if you are on a budget and want that laminate wood look. Also sturdy and waterproof like the product advertises.
