Konecto flooring failure/Don't recommend


Put in 1300 ft of Konnecto Yesterday, took 10 hours and it looks great. Even figured out a way to reverse the direction so you dont have to install it backwards in a difficult layout.

Konecto flooring failure/Don't recommend


Nancy, I have been in the flooring industry for over 30 years. The first time that I saw this product I fell in love with it. So much so that I installed it in my own home, over existing sheet vinyl. There are no issues and no problems.

By the way, don't think that a Rep with their 'wanna-be' competition wouldn't start a thread like this.

Has anyone used or installed the square tiles? Problems? I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks!

We sell Konecto's directional transitions strips so you can change direction as needed.

Talked to a guy in Texas last week about installing a job of Konecto.
he wanted too charge $2 per foot !!!


Do not let these installers take advantage of you if the price is from 1.25-1.00 it is fair anything else is to high.

Heck, Do -IT -Yourself !
hey Wiz can we get this thread renamed since all the good posters are posting here now?

There are many in the ether that still think this is a negative thread.

I just wanted to say a quick Thank You to all of you for contributing on this site.

Who knew I would get so much from this site just from having a brief interest in Konecto flooring and somehow googlin' my way in here. (Renovating Condo)

It has been very informative and I appreciate it very much. Communities and forums like this simply rock!

I admit, although I was mainly in here to get some ideas of what others have experienced with Konecto flyooring, it has been quite entertaining at times watching the pros hash things out between themselves about whatever- regardless of Konecto, specifically.

Anyhow... looks like there is so much to learn about flooring. And, I probably shouldn't be posting this here...(forgive me) but sometimes i guess that oddball post every now and then helps in more ways than one. (Like it did for me in this specific thread)

Konecto flooring definitely seems to be right at the top of my list to check out in person, since it sounds like a solid product from what I can tell so far.

If I do go with Konecto flooring, I will definitely post up my experience here- good or bad. Although, I'll look around to make sure I post it in the appropriate section if necessary.

Thanks again everyone!

P.S. Post pics whenever possible as it relates!


(I hope to replace the Blue Carpeting in my kitchen with Konecto flooring soon. )




YIKES!

Konecto flooring failure/Don't recommend


I checked out this site before installing an entire house full of konecto prestige planks. I assumed that only the bad experiences were reported and there must be many happy customers not taking the time to add their thoughts. So, I had it professionally installed over the recommended underlayment, let it acclimate, left space for expansion and had it rolled- twice. There are still about 2 dozen seams that are separating and the retailer was nice enough to send me some glue to fix it. Except I am still irritated that it has to be fixed in the first place. I live in southern CA, so not much temp changing here. And I just happened to notice that the corners are lifting and breaking off. I have a 3" chunk missing in the middle of my family room. Oh, and while I'm bashing this product - it scratches more easily than I thought it would and makes noise like a pergo or laminate. Very disappointing. I realize it's only vinyl and I can't expect it to look perfect but I CAN expect it to be durable and stay stuck together!

I'm sick of all the drama about this product. I'm sure it's good if it's installed right. I have no idea. Do some research and find out for yourself. I'm closing down this thread. Way to many people abusing this site.

Thanks.
