Questions & Answers

Does the product scratch easily. What is likely to cause scratches and what isn't? What can be used to conceal scratch

Asked by: Dave
Based on the reviews here, the Shadow Hickory seems more susceptible to scratches than my personal experience with the Essential Oak finish.

Should this flooring be silicone around shower to prevent water leaking under and the baseboards also in bathroom?
Asked by: Bud
I would. Even though 100% waterproof, everything can mold.

how do you cut this type of flooring?

Asked by: jeff
I use a sharp utility blade. Be prepared to change the blades often. You can use a saw, but be sure to clean out the tracks of any foreign objects that may impede your ability to lock down a good connection.

Can this product be installed in kitchen around and under a gas range? Currently have one piece vinyl flooring under the range without any problem.
Asked by: Flash
We have installed this laminate in kitchens and under most appliances. We would probably not install this under any range if at all possible. The heat from the oven may not be good for the laminate surface. What we would do is extend the laminate a few inches under the edge of the range for appearances only. While vinyl flooring is typically thin and one piece, the laminate is a floating floor that is interconnected. We would expect that heat from the range may cause the laminate to expand/buckle and it may separate from the heat.

Essential Oak 7.1 in. x 47.6 in. Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring (18.73 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 907.

HOWEVER, this stuff scratches so easily that I can’t recommend it to anyone with kids or who moves furniture now and then. We had a new dishwasher installed and the floor was scratched even though the installer took great care during the installation. Movers moving our furniture into condo after or renovation were warned about the new flooring and still couldn’t avoid a few deep scratches. I love how the flooring works with our small dogs who have their occasional “accidents” but overall, I wish we never bought this type of flooring. I wish we had spent more money on wood look porcelain tile. Very bad decision. We will have to live with it for another few years but I really see us ripping this stuff up and replacing it with something much more durable. So very sorry we ever bought it.

I have installed several laminate and luxury vinyl plank floors and this product stands out as the best that I have encountered so far. For this kitchen job I purchased another product that looked very nice but it was not nearly as well constructed and the material used for the joints came broken in many places and easily cracked and jammed when installing . . . especially if you have to remove and reinstall such as when water gets under it . . . which indeed happened. I ended up returning that product to a different supplier and purchased LifeProof planks at my local Home Depot. The difference was like night and day. It went together easily, had a good video with instructions and none of the joints were damaged before and during the install process. I installed using a saw but they say a knife can be used as well . . . that would take more elbow grease but it would make less of a mess with vinyl shavings. I would highly recommend this new product for DIYers . . . it will save a bunch of money and looks great.

My wife and I decided to finish our basement and went with this color with darker walls. I am a "weekend warrior" in terms of DIY skill level, so I am FAR from a pro. I have never done wood/laminate/vinyl flooring before this project. I laid down 60 cases of this and it went down extremely easy with minimum issues. Finding the right starting point was the most difficult part for me. We had very little waste and the look and quality exceeded our expectations. We have had at least 4 people ask "who laid your floor down?" This is not bragging on my skills. It was just THAT easy to put down. I would ABSOLUTELY buy this again.

A word of advice, be patient in the beginning, and ditch the "soft-faced" hammer. Was about to throw in the towel and return it because I couldn't get it to click together. As soon as I began using a regular hammer (with the tapping block) it was a piece of cake. Scores and snaps apart easily. Truthfully, the hardest part of the entire project was opening the boxes! The floor looks great and installed easily. If the planks seem to be giving you trouble, make sure that a piece of the tongue and groove hasn't broken off and become lodged in the plank. That was the only time I couldn't get them to click together easily. I did have a few planks with damaged corners on one end, but I simply cut that end off and used them at the beginning of a row. I completed a 15x15 room in a day by myself.

Don't be fooled - you CANNOT cut this with a utility knife the way it shows in the video. It's much too thick and rigid to easily 'score and snap.' Upon discovering this, an employee in the flooring department at HD told me a Dremel would "cut it like butter" which was a complete lie. I had to purchase a $17 carbide cutting blade for my Dremel after the regular cutting tool barely scratched it, and yet another HD employee assured me the carbide blade was what I needed. That did cut it, but it was difficult and not a clean cut - certainly nothing like cutting through butter! If you don't have a power saw, you may as well just pay to have it installed. The product looks great, but I'm very disappointed that it now looks (after two wasted weekeneds) that I can't get this job done myself like I'd hoped.

It saddens me to write this review because I wanted to love this flooring so much. It looks beautiful and it installs easily; however, if you have children or pets or live as a normal person, this flooring is not for you. I am finding scratches almost on a weekly basis and we are not aggressive with our flooring. Before the installers were even done, I found a few scratches from their soft plastic knee pads. At that moment I knew we were in trouble. If you want to be extra cautious with your flooring, then get it. If not, this isn't the flooring for you. To make matters even worse, the scratch layer is white. So all scratches show up white on a dark floor so its not like you can't notice them. Save yourself a lot of money and go with something more durable like laminate. We had laminate prior to our LVP and it was extremely difficult to scratch compared to this vinyl. Unfortunately, I regret this purchase.

It is hard to get the pieces to lock together and some pieces do not stay locked in tight. The effort it takes to try and get the pieces locked in took way too much time to install. Another dislike is the fact the little square samples are not a true reflection of the product. The actual planks are much thinner than the sample pieces. I will look for a better product in the future.

Not only the tool to 'hammer' to lock the pieces together but all the cutting tools as well as a soft headed hammer. The flooring looks fabulous! While I really didn't want a wood appearance, we got that because the choices in the store weren't as expansive as the choices if we ordered. We were impatient. We put this down in place of the sheet vinyl that we removed. This was easier by far to handle than doing all the cutting on the sheet. I love that it's waterproof, has some thickness to it, and cushions the floor a bit. We've only had it down for ~ a week, but so far so good. Easy to clean and looks awesome! I dislike that the store didn't have several pieces to show people how to snap them together, it's easy to snap two pieces together, getting 3-4 snapped in is a bit different. I'd say HD needs to ensure their flooring people really take some time to demo the product when talking to prospective buyers - I'm betting it would increase their sales.
