Install allure in fl lanai


Considering installing allure on concrete in our Florida lanai. When completed expect to install hot tub. Will the allure flooring withstand water. Believe that the product advertises that it is waterproof? Does anyone have any experience for this type of usage.

The Konecto products are waterproof to point, your application will fail in short time, to much water.
If water gets under the Konecto/Allure it is a death wish as with any floor.

Thank you for your input. Realizing that the floor could occasionally see alot of water, is their anyway to seal the floor?

Not with this application there is simply to much moisture. The only thing I could suggest is ceramic tile.
