Help installing allure flooring trafficmaster yukon tan


I just bought some allure flooring trafficmaster yukon tan from HD and it did not have instructions. I have searched the web but with little luck on how to do it. Or i should say at one point i did find something before I bought it, but did not bookmark the site.

This is 1 foot by 3 foot tiles with the same pattern on each tile.

Question. On the starter piece placed next to the wall, do I need to put something under the glue strip? If I cut it off then the pattern would be missed matched.

Question. Where is Allure homesite for help

Thanks Bill

if you did not install it, you might want to return it. Usually you will find some 400 replies to how bad this stuff is.

could you post a link to the comments on this flooring? I found the Allure flooring to be way better than individual tiles, which I have used in 2 rooms of my home. I can see how a 3 up plank would be better than individual ones, PLUS there is no pre-preperation needed using these types of plank tiles. Any "heads up" advice would be helpful. Thanks

Heres a long thread on issues w/Allure:

Thoughts and opinions on "Trafficmaster Allure" flooring from Home Depot?

The floor needs to be clean, dry, level and warm. Allure says it is waterproof. Konecto says water resistant. They are the same product, made by the same mill, in the same factory. Even if water doesn't hurt them, they won't allow air thru, so floors underneath them will mold if there is moisture present.
