Attractive and water-tight. This Sydney Country Pine color is a very neutral mix of tans and greys. The planks have darker recesses between planks giving a more tiled and dimensional affect to the floor. I like it a lot. It’s not the flat seamless look of other designs. Just something to be aware of when selecting plank flooring. The surface finish is satin and has a rustic honed texture. There are about 6 different wood patterns. They weren't as varied as I would've liked. Quantities of each were different and one that I liked most had fewer. This is not a soft and bendy vinyl. It is fairly hard. It scores with a box cutter and snaps nicely in both directions because of how hard it is. The backing has an integrated vapor barrier, so we did not put plastic down between it and our concrete slab floor. The backing is a very firm pad (not felt), so the whole floor is quite firm but certainly feels warmer than the concrete did. Our concrete slab tilts off level halfway through the floor so slightly that we did not level it and just ran the planks across that pitch change. The planks bended enough to still hug the concrete throughout. The locking doesn’t have as strong a discernible snap as others, but it does create a solid waterproof seal, which we tested to verify. No water goes through the seams. We hit every joint with a rubber mallet and hammering block to ensure tight seams. We have a concrete stair step that has a rounded corner. A mini multi-tool worked great to cut the curve and the planks bend nicely with heat, time and force to be able to wrap a plank around the curved riser and glue it on. I found a couple of matching transition moldings for this floor, but nothing that will bend around the curved edge of the step, so we are still deliberating the best edge treatment before installing on the step. Overall, we are very pleased with this flooring. It looks and feels wonderful.

Sydney Clove color; Nice quality plank with rubber backing that saves you the work of having to put underlayment. The backing looks like waterproof to prevent mildew if water spills happen to fall through the cracks. The installation is fairly easy with the exception of the cutting, unless you have the right tools, but the connection is straight forward self locking in place. I took a photo of the plank next to the hardwood natural finish red oak so you know how the one I have compares to that. I have the Sydney Clove color, which is more brownish and darker than natural red oak hardwood flooring. It’s a nice rustic looking color.

Thank you Lorena for the wonderful review on Sydney Clove. We are delighted to know that you find that the planks are of nice quality and that the attached pad is definitely a bonus. In my personal experience, I have had the best luck with a compound miter saw to cut the planks. We appreciate you sharing your experience with us and we have a Consumer Concierge team available if you should have any questions or concerns about the flooring. This team can be reached at askshaw@shawinc.com or (844) 742-7429, Monday through Friday, 8 am until 6 pm est. Thank you again for the wonderful review and have an amazing day!~clf shaw

Very nice flooring. The main thing to remember with flooring like this is to have a flat level surface to install them. If there are any holes in the surface you will need to patch them to avoid having the flooring dip or let any holes work their way in. You will need as roller to press them down onto the adhesive. If you press along the planks it will add surface tension and they will spring back and leave gaps.

Thank you very much for taking the time to submit this great review on Sydney. All subfloors must be clean, flat, dry and structurally sound. The correct preparation of the subfloor is a major part of a
successful installation. Subfloor must be flat – 3/16" in 10' or 1/8" in 6'. Use cementitious patching and leveling compounds that meet or exceed maximum moisture level and pH requirements. Use of gypsum-based patching and/or leveling compounds which contain Portland or high alumina cement and meet or exceed the compressive strength of 3,000 psi are acceptable. It is recommended that you roll the flooring immediately after installation with a 100 lbs. 3‐section roller. Thank you again for the great review and the wonderful advise to our future readers. If you should have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Consumer Concierge team at askshaw@shawinc.com or (844) 742-7429, Monday through Friday, 8am until 6pm est. Have an awesome day!~clf shaw

Shaw Sydney Country Pine 7 in. W x 48 in. L Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring (18.91 sq. ft./case) This flooring is terrific!! While I am sure it is not recommended we installed this in our RV. Many years ago we installed vinyl plank in the living area of the same RV from another manufacture and we have really liked it. Our original vinyl plank had an adhesive edge while this new floor from Shaw uses a snap lock design. This flooring arrived well packaged, all the long edges of the box were surrounded in industrial corner cardboard edging. We did not have one damaged plank. This product is thick, heavy and should withstand lots of punishment, it also comes with a really great underlayment pre-installed. I did not notice any offensive odors coming from the vinyl. No instructions were included but they can be found here on The Home Depot website. It can be cut with many of your normal tools, I used a combination of sliding miter saw, jig saw, mat knife and a Dremel tool for fine tuning around some edges. Every tool worked great. Laid this out just like laminate flooring, started in the back and worked left to right. The long sides pressed down into place and a rubber mallet worked to seat the ends, I also used the mallet on the long side. All of the flat area was installed as a floating floor but on my step I had to use an adhesive. The installation could not have gone better. This floor is beautiful, it looks and feels almost like real wood. I think anyone who uses this will be happy.

Thank you Texas123 for this amazing review on Sydney Country Pine. We are very delighted that you have shared all of these amazing comments with us and our future readers on this great product. We are so happy that you love the look and feel of your beautiful new floors and that your installation went smoothly. The post installation temperature range allowed is an ambient room temperature between -25°F and 155°F (31.6°- 68.3°C), which is the biggest concern with installing the product in an RV. This allowance is for floating floors only and does not apply to glue-down installations. Thank you again for the amazing review and all of the helpful information on the installation of this product. If you should have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Consumer Concierge team at askshaw@shawinc.com or (844) 742-7429, Monday through Friday, 8am until 6pm.

If you are in need of a waterproof flooring solution you may want to check out the Shaw Sydney Country Pine 7 in. W x 48 in. L Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring as a possible solution. The Luxury Vinyl flooring is completely waterproof so this makes is a all around worry proof flooring solution.The pattern is nice look and a few of the planks vary in pattern. I do think looking at the planks they look more plastic like then several of the other flooring solutions I have in my house. The planks come with a rubber attached base that is really nice and I think better then any base I have seen with per-attached padding. Overall I would say this is slightly above average flooring (most since the look is only ok) that comes with not much in the way of installation instructions.

I love this vinyl plank flooring. The color is a beautiful gray. It also has a nice wood like textured feel to the planks. We installed this in our children's bathroom due to its resilience! It is 100% waterproof, so when water gets onto the floor after showers there is no concern. It is also scratch resistant, so it remains unharmed and there is no wear and tear.

This is an excellent flooring choice for any area that may get wet. It is a full vinyl plank with a resilient rubber backing. This particular style has nice looking sawmill marks that helps make it more slip resistant if wet. My main complaint is that Shaw does not include instructions with the product. I have not started to install this yet, but will be going to Shaw's web site to see if they have installation tips that make it easier. I can see already that planning is required to make sure you start laying it from the right direction.

This flooring not only looks beautiful but it is completely water proof for use in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, or mudrooms. The rubber backing is mounted to the planks so there is no need to add a resilient pad. The planks lock easily as you lay them, as long as you work in the correct direction. Two things to watch for with this product: Shaw does not label the cartons with the color name, only the manufacturer item number; and there are no installation instructions, so you are on your own to figure the best way to cut the planks and also to know which direction to start laying the planks.If you choose to cut these with a circular saw blade, expect it to gum up and need to be cleaned or replaced often. cutting with heavy metal cutting shears may be easier.

The Shaw Sydney resilent vinyl plank flooring is a good alternative to tile and at a great price. The vinyl is thinner than I expected. The vinyl can be glued on tile or subfloor. The vinyl is very flexible and very easy to hide some of the imperfections of an uneven floor. I was using it for basement concrete floor and installed it on top of existing commercial vinyl.
