Questions & Answers


How many do you get in a box?

Asked by Bev April 13, 2021

Thank you for your question- According to which size you have 6x36, there's 16, 12x24-12 planks, and 12x36, there's 8 planks.

How many planks come in 1 box

Asked by Ricka February 17, 2021

Thank you for your question- Planks per carton: 16 planks; sq. ft. per carton: 24

I can’t find the information I need to order. I need 240 square feet. I can’t find how many square feet are in a box

Asked by Rick September 14, 2020

Thanks for your question. You'll find all of the product info on the actual product page. The page you're on is only the 4x4 sample piece. I've linked it below. Each case has 24 sq ft and we recommend purchasing an extra 10% to account for waste and cuts. By those numbers, you'll need 11 boxes. Please know this is just an estimate and the actual amount needed may be different. https://www.homedepot.com/p/TrafficMaster-African-Wood-Dark-6-in-W-x-36-in-L-Luxury-Vinyl-Plank-Flooring-24-sq-ft-case-57111-0/202075777

what would I use as a transition strip between my vinyl flooring and the carpet in the hallway?

Asked by BB July 19, 2020

Thanks for your question. We normally suggest Zamma brand transitions and reducers but it doesn't look like they have one for this color. I'd recommend getting in touch with your local store to see what they'd have to match.

I was told if installing over concrete you can only use 6 mil poly. Can you not use any other vapor barrier? foam?

Asked by JSB April 17, 2020

Thank you for your question- No other moisture barrier can be used. No underlayments should be used, no foam or 3 n 1. This will void the warranty

Are you required to use a underlayment over concrete? Or, is that just a suggestion?

Asked by JSB April 16, 2020

No. I did not use an underlayment. However, you should definitely ensure you smooth out any raised imperfections as they will show in the finished floor. Also, I did put a 6 mil moisture barrier underneath in a couple of rooms where I’ve had incidents of moisture in the slab due to heavy rains.

Does this come with rubber matting attached to the bottom side of the plank

Asked by KC December 13, 2019

Thanks for your question. African Wood Dark planks do not have any type of rubber mat or backing. The entire plank is made from vinyl. Trafficmaster is a name that Home Depot puts on many different products from many different manufacturers. We (Halstead) manufacture the African Wood Dark and the other 'grip strip' planks.

Can you Purchase single Planks

Asked by Alba October 14, 2019

Thanks for your question. You can only purchase these by the full case.

What paint colors will match this flooring?

Asked by Shanelle September 8, 2019

It’s a natural floor color, anything. Gray, cream, blue, greens. It you want to even out the red tone in the floor stay away from orange based tans and red paint. But maybe you want to enhance the red tones. Take the sample to the paint dept and hold it up and see what you like.

Does this come in other thickness?

Asked by Rocky February 4, 2019

Thank you for your question- The grip strip planks all have 3.8mm thickness

This vinyl plank was easy to cut and install, it looks beautiful on our bathroom floor (I also have it in my guess bathroom and kitchen) The only thing I did not like was once you put it down its down, there is no picking up to re-install or re-setting with out the glue weakening.

Extremely sad I choose this product for my home. The look and feel is cheep and quickly damaged. (There in no warranty.) In the fine print it explains it covers pretty much nothing. I have had my floors less than 3 months and its covered in scratches and defects. I feel stupid having bought this product.

Very happy with this purchase
I installed by myself 350 square feet art studio in an old repurposed mill building in less than 8 hours. Floor was installed on top of a painted plywood. Very easy to install compared to traditional hardwood flooring. Added a very bold look to our studio. We have been complemented on how beautiful it looks by many people. I'm about to install the same material in my three season porch at home.

Good Looking & Durable
We selected the iron wood color for our retail boutique. We were not aware that what we had purchased was not commercial grade and therefore Home Depot could not install it in our store with any sort of guarantee. So, I did it myself two years ago (female, age 60). What I liked about it was the ability to cut it with a box cutter and a study metal straight edge. . .no saws like laminate. I prepped the concrete floor--leveling and patching what had been covered with carpet in a building built just post WWII. It has worn wonderfully and we have received so many compliments on the flooring. Many customers have asked what we used as they were looking for new flooring options. Take your time installing and be sure the adhesive remains covered so dust and dirt do not affect its stickiness. Do use the Allure single-step cleaner & polisher (soft satin finish) for protection. We also use Pledge Floor Care multi-surface squirt & mop in between as well as dry and damp mopping it. I did find a Youtube video that was very helpful from one who had installed it. Make sure your first pieces are square to the room--that's key. Our store is in West Des Moines, Iowa so it sees snow traffic and still beautiful!

Great product
We noticed this same laminate being used in our favorite restaurant and decided we wanted to use it in our heavily used laundry room. We installed this in one night, it is extremely easy to work with, easy to cut and install...we had never done anything like this on our own before. We watched an installation video to make sure we knew what we were doing and went at it. It has held up for two years, now, in our laundry room and it still looks brand new. It hasn't shown any scratches and cleans so easily. The African wood is a lovely look. We are actually going to use this same flooring in the dry bar we are creating out of an old closet.
