Konecto in basement


Does anyone have any experience or advice about using Konecto on a concrete floor in a basement? I have read about some people who have had problems but does anyone have a success story that they could share?

I can tell you positively that we started with a clean clean surface of concrete and OSB and then acclimated the boxes upside down and rolled and rolled and rolled. It still is POSITIVELY not sticking. If you don't have a professional installer do it and it fails - YOU ARE STUCK WITH THE MESS!!!

Plus if you buy the floor make sure you get the installers set of instructions from KONECTO. They have their own that is not given to the general public. It has more tidbits for success. Not a very upstanding thing for them to do.

Purchasing from a retailer that has great customer service and having them install should help.
Mannington Adura has learned from Konecto's mistakes, so that is a good option as well.
