So would I need to buy rolls of underlayment to lay down underneath this even though it has an underlayment attached??
Asked by: lonewolf
Our contractor told us that it depends where you are installing it. We are doing a residential basement where the concrete is likely to be uneven causing the floating boards to "slap down" when stepping on an area that may be lower than surrounding areas. Thus, he recommended a soft underlayment.

Take Home Sample - Chiffon Lace Oak Luxury Vinyl Flooring - 4 in. x 4 in. is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 3700.

I installed this flooring in 1100 sq. ft. of my home. I wanted flooring that would be water resistant and I liked the fact that the planks had an antimicrobial backing attached to it. The planks were not easy for me to score and snap, it was very resistant to scoring with a razor knife. I found that it was much easier and faster to use a table saw and cut the planks, especially when flooring such a large area. I used liquid floor leveler first before installing the flooring. Highly recommend using leveler if the floor is not level as they stated. It worked very well. My sister even helped with some of the install. The flooring job turned out very well.

The plank patterns look great and I couldn't wait to get this installed in a basement bedroom. This was the most I've spent on Vinyl Plank Flooring and it is by far the worst quality when it came to installing. The planks crack and chip easily when interlocking together. Once the interlock piece is broken, it cannot be installed without a noticeable 1/32" gap. I was very delicate when installing this after learning how easily they break and chip and it still didn't help. They're just too cheaply made for even professionals to install. Everyone loves the floor while standing at the door, but when they enter they immediately notice the imperfections.

It looks and feels like real wood, complete with the texture, but it can take a solid pounding and not scratch or dent. The mat underneath does an excellent job of absorbing vibrations. Just a heads-up, and something that a future buyer needs to know, keep in mind that by putting this floor down, you likely will increase the echos in the room so plan with some sound-deadening materials like curtains or soft furniture. The flooring is a little expensive compared to other kinds of LIfeproof flooring, but the look (and compliments from neighbors) say that the right choice was made. It just looks stunning!

I've installed many different flooring products in my 25 years of owning a dozen rental homes. I like the durability of this product so I decided to spend more and give it a try. It's made of PVC so it should be waterproof. It should not expand too much and buckle. It shouldn't scratch or wear out easily. It installed very easily. Probably one of the most easiest floors I've installed. It looks and feels terrific. I went directly over tile, and didn't need to purchase underlayment. There was one problem. Somehow a much lighter peice got in the mix. We didn't notice it until I was 3/4 of the way done. Once this product locks in you cannot go backwards. If you do you have to discard it because it will not lock again. The single peice also had a chip on a corner. All the other pieces did not come close to chipping. So this one piece must of been a defect. It's a shame because otherwise everything else was great. I've sent a letter to the manufacturer to see what they can do for me. I will post an update.

While it took a couple of tries to get the second row started smoothly and tightly, after that, installation was fairly easy and the floor looks great. The interlocking vinyl pieces locked into place with moderate tapping, using a rubber mallet (rather than the nylon-coated hammer described in the instructions). It took about four hours total time to complete a 10' X 12' space; including time to cut pieces to fit. I finished the floor on Aug. 14, 2018. Cutting the pieces only takes a straight edge (I used an aluminum T-square) and a sharp blade (box knife) to score along the cut line and then snap the tile apart. It does require two tools specifically made for installing these tiles - a 3" X 9" X 1/2" tapping block and a pull bar (for wood or laminate flooring). In addition, there is an edge moulding of matching color to finish off the the seam where the vinyl tile meets other flooring or at a doorway.

You should definitely watch a you tube video on how to lock the flooring together to get a tight seal. I used a mallet and cut a 8 inch scrap of flooring (also cut it horizontal to make it approximately 8" x 3") to use as a block for getting the pieces locked in tightly. Scoring was difficult so I used jigsaw which made life way easier. It cut through the flooring easily. I also found it helpful to unpack multiple boxes, sort the pieces by pattern (I believe there are only four different patterns for Sterling Oak) in order to randomize the pieces I was laying. We love the finished product. It feels nice on bare feet and not too cold, even in a basement. I've never attempted a project like this and I ended up laying 1,000 sq ft on my own. If I can do it, you can do it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t believe the DIY reviews I am a contractor that has installed dozens of click together types of flooring. This product is junk and fits together worse than .99 cent per square foot. It ends do not click together without hitting it with a dead blow hammer. It can’t be taken apart without damaging. The long seam lines do not click together positively and have gaps. Finally ridiculously it comes in enough it comes with multiple widths which is unnecessary and complicates installation. There are hundreds of better products at this price.

[4 stars because we only recently installed, so not sure about durability over time yet] Pleasantly surprised! I was 99.9999% against vinyl flooring in my kitchen and bathroom renovation, however looking for a durable and completely waterproof option, my eyes wondered to this product. I really liked that despite it being vinyl, the product looks like laminate (which I like). It also seemed quality due to the underlay pad on the back of the planks. I chose the Sterling Oak color, as I wanted a gray color that still had warmth to it due to my kitchen cabinets being a very light gray (didn't want to whole room to look cold). Other LVT brands/options were very heavy on the gray wash, taking away the oak color I love, so this was the perfect balance of gray and oak color. Installation was easy once you get a feel for how to snap the pieces together (should account for a few broken ones during your leaning curve), but using the rubber hammer and the block they recommend, it went very quick (one-day to install with 2 people working - one cutting, the other installing). They say you can use a utility knife to cut these, however we already had a table saw set up for other projects, so we ended up using that, which worked very well. All in all, we had very little scrap at the end of install. We're still pulling the kitchen together, but since install (a few months ago), the floor has been holding up well! Currently trying to decide if I want to do the whole house in this instead of refinishing my hardwood... ;)

I bought 34 cases and not a single plank was damaged. The only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars was because they are extremely difficult to cut with a utility knife. After installing the first row I realized I was going to have to switch to saws or it would’ve taken me a month instead of 2 days.

Installation was a breeze after working through the diagram error in the instructions (amateur documentation). The problem is the final look. The patterns are too knotty, there's only six different patterns so it's too easy to see repeats, and the finish is super flat, which shrinks a room very noticeably. Not my 1st choice for formal areas. No documentation on prepping the floor, I had to belt sand out a couple of uneven sub flooring spots, not a big or unusual job but it should me mentioned somewhere. Out of the 11 boxes I opened 4 of them had 6 of the 7 pieces that were exactly the same. Also the sales lady tried to sell me the wrong 'knocker', that would've damaged the tongue and groove. Again, the documentation or company videos really lack.

"Lifeproof" is nothing more than a marketing claim because it is anything but. We installed this a few weeks ago, choosing vinyl over wood because of it's durability as we have a toddler and dogs in the house. To our surprise it takes almost nothing to put deep and noticeable scratches in this product. My toddler's play table chairs leave scratches (where when used on our wood floors they leave no marks), a box drug across the floor left a scratch, and the worst scratch is when we had to move our fridge back into place it left terrible scratches-- even though we put down cardboard and the fridge is new so the wheels aren't in bad shape. We have filed a claim and will hopefully be reimbursed, but that won't reimburse us the time we spent putting it down, then tearing it up and putting something else down. It's just a really terrible product. If we wanted something we needed to be super careful with we would have gotten wood.

I would consider myself on the medium side of being handy however working with this product was really easy. Here's what I did: I used a box cutter to cut the ends of the plank with a square and once I made a few swipes, I snapped the flooring over my leg and that worked fairly well. If you are trying to use a box cutter to cut it all the way, I can see why peoples arms could hurt without snapping the planks. I did go through a ton of blades. For any odd shapes (around vents) I used a jigsaw to cut other shapes. I'd suggest to take the time and plan out you installation, clean your subfloor, remove baseboards and be patient and ensure you tap the planks together. Floor feels good under your feet, has good cushion and does not feel too cold due to the built in underlayment. Looks great too!

I just have a feeling 20 years from now people will be ripping up all this vinyl flooring wondering what we were doing lol... Installed it in my bathroom over boring standard contractor tile. I refilled the grout lines as a precaution but I don't think that is necessary at all given the thickness of these planks. As others have noted, I didn't even consider using a knife. Just go buy a jigsaw. Unless you have the one floor in the world that doesn't require some odd cuts, you're going to need one anyway and you'll save yourself some headaches using it for the straight cuts too. It's not a bad thing a knife isn't cut out for the job - these planks are too thick for one realistically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Flooring I purchased this flooring for my rental property. The color I initally wanted was special order so I chose Choice Oak since it was available in store. Installation was simple; however I didn’t make much progress with the score and snap method. I used a dremel tool instead for the short and ripped cuts. Added the quarter round in Seasoned Oak which matched well The finished result is great! I had one small area that ended at the steps to the basement. That’s the only dissapointment with this project - that the matching stair nose had to be ordered as its not available in store. Other than that, I’m very pleased. I plan to use this same color in my home as well in the kitchen bathroom.

I have put down several floors with different products. The Lifeproof planks were the worst of maybe 5 products. The click or locking system is flimsy and difficult to fit snugly. This product was the the thinnest of the plank systems I applied. Perhaps its thinness does not allow for a better locking system. In general engineered vinyl tile requires truly flat floor with little grace room, but these tiles provided no margin or error: A slight hill or bump caused the skimpy lock tabs to break and the planks separated. The tile was attractive and admittedly cheaper than the better quality brands ... now I see why they are less expensive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from deceptive color I ordered the Alexandria Oak to floor 1400 sq ft of my house, I shopped all the Lifrproof options online and ordered the flooring that fit what I was looking for - not light, not dark. I was shocked when I picked up my order from Home Depot - this flooring is VERY DARK. the color shown online is the lightest the pieces may come in - the rest are darker with heavy black knots. overall I'm extremely dissatisfied with the difference, it makes my house DARK and was not what I was looking for. I give it 3 starts because I do like the quality, just don't trust the pictures. If you have time, order a box so you can see the true color variation.

These planks are beautiful and nice to walk on, but beware-- put on your Patience Cap! You'll need to be patient with yourself and patient with the process. The fit is VERY exact, so make sure you do the long end first, leaving a TINY maybe 1mm line at the short end, and only bang the short end into place when the long seam is perfect! If you do that and follow all the other directions, you might end up with a beautiful floor. (I did, but with one bad seam at the beginning and a couple of non-perfect seams later. You can't change them once the short end is banged in.) Overall, I'm satisfied, and I will continue with the rest of my project (one more room and the hall in between.) However, if you want absolute perfection, consider paying for installation. Corners, closets, doorways, imperfectly straight walls, imperfections in the floor, measuring and cutting the planks to fit exactly....all of these are details you'll otherwise have to deal with.

Jus just finished installing 300 square feet in our kitchen and dining room area. The floor was quick to install because of the wide planks. The installed floor looks beautiful and the gray tones and surface wood grain on the planks gives it a look of quality. The thickness of the product, 7 mm, plus the built in pad, makes the floor feel solid and quiet underfoot. The value of the product is also excellent. At $3.50 a square foot it compares very favorably with the $5 per foot and up of similar products from specialty flooring stores. In conclusion, we are very happy with the quality looks and value of this product.

I’m installing this with my dad who has done numerous laminate and tile projects and has every tool and trick known to man. As other reviews have said the seams MUST be tapped in with a block and mallet. This is a massive understatement. Also there were a handful of seams that would not seat flush that I’ll have to live with. Swapping out planks did not work. If this project would have been laminate we would have finished the project in 3 working days, but here we are after 7 and still have 2 more left (working on weekends 6-8 hours a day). Overall I’m very happy with the look and function of the flooring and like that it has some texture and grip to it. But this is by far the most difficult product we’ve ever worked with. It shouldn’t be this time consuming. I have 2 bathrooms left to do and I will NOT be using Lifeproof again. I have too much time invested in the floors I’ve laid down so far to rip it up and take back.

I do think this is a good product - and I've gotten a lot of compliments on the result. But the key is in the installation and the details (and the room you are doing). I would love to do another room with them knowing what I know now. When I started I was useless, and by the end of the room I was a pro :-) Maybe these tips will help the next person doing it themselves. The instructions provided in the box (and on the website) are all technically accurate, but I think there should have been more focus and emphasis on some aspects of the installation. In any instructions or video on these things, it always looks pretty easy as the examples are usually a fairly done in a fairly rectangular space. But I did this in a kitchen with lots of nooks and crannies and doors and closets. In a complicated space like this the key is - where to start? I realized 3/4 of the way through that my life would have been a lot easier if I started in a different corner! I would highly suggest taking plenty of time to visualize starting in all possible corners of your room, and then visualize laying the planks all the way from start to finish. I was too eager and should have taken the time to do this. Also when planning, I think I was initially misinterpretting the term "floating floor". And of course - the floor is not actually fixed to the floor with nail or glue. But I was thinking the whole floor needs to be able to move with movement in the house. But (in my opinion) the only important factor is the 1/4" spacing around the edges. For example, in my kitchen the oven is sort of in the middle of the space (see photo below). The instructions say to make sure any appliances are in place first and then cut around them. So I figured "I can't plop a heavy oven on top of a floating floor - it won't float!" But I call the manufacturer for support (they were very helpful) and it turns out that's not a problem and they will bear a lot of weight per square inch. The result looks much better that way, but I would have planned things differently if I was thinking that way from the start. The next thing is - the long connections between planks really should be seamless! I was being too gentle at first (not wanting to break planks) when using the tapping block to push them together, and I thought the small gap was acceptable. About 1/3 way through I realized that you really do need to whack them together hard to get them to be seamless. It made a big enough difference that I tore up what I had done and restarted (which does not take too long. Two other related points on this. My tapping block disintegrated about half way through, so I used the metal pull bar for the remainder of the project - and it worked just as well or better. But be careful to NOT tap/hammer on the connecting grooves. You have to hit them hard to connect properly, and that will break the grooves. Be sure to place your block/bar above the connectors. If you partially damage those grooves, you won't get the seamless connection. This was a big one for me. The instructions say you can use a utility knife, which is what I am used to doing when cutting sheet rock. But in my opinion there is NO WAY you can do it this way - unless you have about a week to do it. The surface is very hard, and you will have to make a lot of cuts around little corners and doors and stuff. I gave up on that after one plank, got a Dremel Ultra Max, and it was easy that way. If you are going to do it that way, plan on doing it outside (or in a work room or something) because the cutting creates a lot of dust. I even wore a mask when making the cuts. Two more suggestions... Buy extra. The directions say to buy an extra 10% to allow for mistakes etc. And if I was doing it again, the extra 10% would have been enough because I would make less mistakes at the start. But I also would have redone a few less than perfect cuts if I wasn't worried about running out of planks. And measure precisely! Even a very small closet or weird space. Because even if the space is very small, you may need to go through a few planks. I'd rather have extra on hand and return a box, then being worried about running out. Final point. I put this floor down over an old and somewhat damaged hardwood floor. Cheaper than repairing/refinishing the original floor for a home sale. The instructions suggest that you use a jamb saw to cut out protruding door jambs or other wood work, and then slide the planks underneath. But I figured... if the new owner wants to tear up this floor, then they are stuck with all these cut out pieces that would be tough to replace? And also - in this old house the jambs ran under the old floor, so I don't even think I could have cut them out easily at all? So my solution was to cut the plank around the jambs/woodwork, and then when I put the 1/2" quarter-round shoe moulding down, I mad two outside mitre cuts so the moulding sort of overlapped the jamb and covered most of the cut out. A bit of caulk sealed the gap nicely - you wouldn't know I did this without a very close inspection. See photo below. Sorry for the long review, but would love to save someone a few hours of frustration!

I won't recommend this product until LifeProof starts actually properly mixing their Choice Oak patterns properly. I have 4 of a single pattern for every 1 of anything else, which is absolute f---in bull--t. There is no way, after 11 boxes to finish installing this floor without buying a bunch more boxes. The whole "we mix the pattern randomly" within our boxes is a lie, this is clearly weighted towards a single pattern to force you to keep buying more to finish your install. I've almost finished my install which called for 11 boxes, right now i have a stack of 3 boxes worth of that single pattern....

Was excited about this option as it seems vinyl has come a long way. The product looked great in person and almost like real wood floors. Installation was absolutely not as easy as the instruction video laid out. First off its simply not true and a bit misleading to advise customers that this product can be scored and cut with a utility knife. The best tool for this job would be a miter saw or circular saw. Also if you have to go around obstacles a jigsaw is really mandatory as well. Next, the tongue and groove locking system is very finicky to get to seat properly and extremely fragile. I destroyed many pieces. Next the flooring doesn't simply click in. You will need a wood block and mallet to bang each plank into place. The flooring looks "ok" but there are certain areas I could not get flush. This is not the first time I have done flooring either. I really think the installation process was MUCH more cumbersome than I was led to believe.

After buying and installing 12 boxes of the Chiffon Lace oak we went back to buy the transitions for doorways and find that Home Depot does not support the product to completion. THERE IS NO appropriate (even close would have worked) transition or reducer for this floor or any other vinyl flooring that is not brown. Not sold in stores, not sold online. So disappointed I can't even describe. Shame on you Home Depot!!!!!!!!!!!! By the way ... we love the floor but with no way to properly complete installation I would NEVER recommend. And now $1000 in and not happy!

We remodeled our laundry room and the contractor suggested purchasing the Lifeproof flooring. He said it was a little higher price, but well worth it for durability and it was waterproof. I chose the Scratch Stone design and it went down over our existing tile. The contractor had the floor done in a short time and it looks great. No worries about damage to the floor from foot traffic from garage to interior of our home. It's perfect and goes nicely with our brushed nickel knobs and handles. I had an extra box and returned it to the store with absolutely NO hassle.
