Lumber Liquidators Tranquility Vinyl vs. Home Depot TrafficMaster

tigerninetyMarch 10, 2013


We're trying to finalize flooring decisions for our moisture/water vulnerable basement. We're going with flooring options that either don't care or are easy to clean/dry/replace if they get wet. In one area, we're going with Flor carpet tile.

But, in another area, we're considering vinyl planks. From what we understand, they're waterproof if there's a flood.We're trying to pick between LL's Tranquility product (on sale at $2.24/sq ft with a 50 year warranty) vs HD's TrafficMaster Allure Ultra ($2.97/sq ft with a lifetime warranty).

Now, for my wife and me (in our 40s), there's not a lot of difference in the warranty; we're not likely to be in the house when the Tranquility's warranty runs out. And, the Tranquility feels much more substantial than the TrafficMaster.

So, does anyone have any experience with either of these products? Any other opinions?
