worse than vinyl by the roll

Pros

Best Uses
Comment:
I bought it because I have dogs and thought this would be durable. It looked rich once it was installed then when we moved in our furniture it scratched easily and many cleaners leave a residue. Save your money and buy the new rolled vinyl in a lighter color or buy real wood. This is way too costly for a product so inferior. Also there are areas where the laps look like they are separating but they are not. Don't waste your money!!!
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Armstrong Lux Vinyl Planks
7/10/2012
Pros
Authentic wood look
Cons
Does not maintain shine
scratches EASILY
Shows wear quickly
Best Uses
Comment:
This product looks great when installed. But, it is very difficult to maintain the clean, polished appearance. Even a slide of a dining chair will cause a scratch that cannot be repaired. Given the negative aspects of this flooring, we would have definitely chosen a different, more durable product.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
