Comment:
It took a year but the problem has risen and now I will have to do the whole bedroom all over again, not a job I want to do every year. This product went down great with a few minor exceptions but our room is an angle nightmare, anyway I loved the feel of the floor on my feet and it looked great. BUT NOW the seams are cracking, where we walk of course. So the one inch overlapping seam is cracked on the top piece anyway I don't know because I have not removed the floor to see if the bottom piece is also cracked but we started stubbing our toes a few months ago and now they are just out right ripped from impact with our feet. I am looking for HOME DEPOT for assistance since the ALLURE customer service is an answering machine.

This is flooring very difficult to install. A professional flooring installer and I tried to install this product. It took us 14 hours to install about 75 square feet. I got so frustrated I took it apart in less than 15 minutes. And I returned it all to Home Depot. We read the directions and watched the installation video at least three times.<br /> The flooring does look like wood because of the coloring and embossed grain in the vinyl.
How long have you owned it:

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!!! The only positive thing about this floor is that it is very easy to install. It does not stay together once installed. If you visit a HD store they'll probably do this cute little test with a razor blade to show their claim of it not scratching. This product DOES scratch and does not wear properly. It never appears clean. 6 months after installing its already wearing very poorly under normal (2 adult and 2 children) household conditions. Family and I laid 1800 SQ Ft of this product and now we're out $5K and stuck with flooring that sucks. If you do purchase this product have a professional install it. Otherwise HD will not back the product. Good luck
