Allure Ultra vinyl planks


We are looking into installing the new Allure Ultra vinyl planks that CLIC together. We are installing them on a concrete floor in the basement. Does anyone have any experience with DIY installing and how they stand up to scratches, dents, water and etc.?

Yep! I wrote a detailed review and installation process on my blog here:-------- Please take note of the photos I took, which show gaps between seams, and how to avoid them. These gaps seem to be the main cause for concern and frustration with this product, but it's not impossible to prevent them!

So far I love it. It's very, very hard to scratch, and no dents so far, despite my bed and furniture being moved on to it the very next day after we installed it. I just spilled water on it this morning and wiped it all up easy.
