wood look vinyl click planks.

Want to know it anyone has used the wook look vinyl planks that click together. How were they to put down and how are they holding up? I know everyone here thinks wood or tile is best, but I just don't see why we should for our house. We live in a 80000.00 house on a 200,000.00 acerage. A 40 plus yr old split entry with 3 bdrm 1.5 bath. Our county has a master plan, and our home is not on it. We want to keep things nice for ourselves, but with the realization that the future of the home may be a bulldozer. We have lots of animals, and muddy tracks. Sick of dirty carpet. Anyone with experience with this type of floor?

I am guessing you are talking about the Allure Ultra?

I have used the old version of Allure many times and love it. We are doing a bathroom now and I plan on using some of the travertine look Allure Ultra. Then I am planning on using one of the wood styles for the living room. When I was in HD last week the merchandisers were in looks like they are bringing in a lot more colors to the stores.

A sample piece I picked up off their cart looks very durable. I tried scratching it with a letter open and could not.

RE: wood look vinyl click planks.

We are looking at the same type of product for a basement remodel- probably either Allure/Konecto, or Armstrong Luxe Plank since we are leaning towards DIY. I've found some good information doing searches on this forum- try "Allure" or "Konecto" or "vinyl plank", there are an array of responses from folks who have installed vinyl plank, with varying results. Good luck!
