Trafficmaster Allure ULTRA Do you have this in your home?


I am considering this product for my home. My question is directed to anyone who has had this product in their home for 6 months or more. How is the flooring holding up to day to day use? My interest is especially for eating areas that have chairs sliding back and forth to the table. Thanks

I am aware of the posts because I have read them but my question was not answered. I am specifically asking about Allure ULTRA not the Allure with "sticky strips" and I want info on the DURABILITY of the product from people that actually have this product in their home.

I have it in my son's room. It hasn't been more than a few months, but I haven't detected any wear at all.

It has a bit of texture, so it isn't slippery. I used caulking of a similar color along any seams that were visible to help keep the floor watertight and to facilitate clean up.

For a dining room, I would still recommend putting something on the chair leg bottoms, not only to limit scratching but also to make them easier to push around. I'd suggest doing that with any floor covering except porcelain tile.

I think it may be an excellent product for your intended use.

Do not waste your money! We installed this flooring in our kitchen 5 months ago and are already thinking of replacing it. It is horrible! Not only is it incredibly difficult to install (do not believe the "easiest floor ever" slogan on the box), it is hard to keep clean and is coming apart in places. We followed the instructions to the letter when installing. There are several sections that have come apart so I can't even mop the floor now since the water will seep under the flooring.
For 10 cents more a square foot we could have gone with a pergo floor. I guess you get what you pay for! Run away from this flooring fast and head towards the Pergo!
