Invincible LVP flooring?

zeitgastOctober 13, 2013

Anybody have experience with the Carpet One store brand of luxury vinyl planking?

Was shopping for LVP and saw on display. Looks really good and seems to have good specs (0.55 mm wear layer).

We are installing on a concrete slab below grade (basement actually) but I was told by the rep that they sell a lot of this for people who like wood in a kitchen but don't want to worry about water or tile induced back pain.

I don't know what brand Carpet One is selling.

We have Konnecto brand luxury vinyl planks- wood type- in our sunken living room. We did use the Konnecto underlayment to provide a little bit of softening. I think it would be great in a kitchen. We just have it in the LR due to flooding and having to rip out the carpet. We wanted to have something waterproof in case it happens again. I put it in in Jan 2010 and it still looks great. Lots of people think it is real wood.

i don't know about Carpet One either, but I looked at their website and they have quite a selection. I wonder who manufacturers it? Is it made by Konnecto also?

I have used the Allure flooring from home depot since it first came out. I love it.

The newest is the Allure Plus. I installed the travertine style in a bathroom, and a wood look style in a back entryway. I think it's beautiful and SO easy to keep clean.

I plan to use it in my next kitchen & bathroom projects.

I don't know carpet one.

I used LVP from Amtico in most of our house, and I used Flexitech in the basement as it is more cushioned and it's a sheet product so less likely to be impacted by moisture. Both have performed very well for us, but Amtico is expensive.
