Question DetailsAsked on 7/17/2013

Is Allure flooring a good choice for kitchen remodeling?

I'm in the process of planning a kitchen renovation, and want flooring that is comfortable to stand on, but durable and resistant to water damage. (Spills happen!) I've heard good things about Allure, and wonder how it stacks up to other choices out there

As with any newer product the proof will come in time as people have it in their homes for several years. It looks like an excellent DIY option. Even though the manufacturer states a moisture test is not required I would still perform one to make sure you aren't trapping moisture from your concrete slab (if you have one) under the flooring. I've read some reviews about this happening and mold breeding because of it. If your moisture level is too high simply seal the concrete before installing the flooring. In a kitchen or bathroom I'd also caulk the edges with a good tub & tile antimicrobial caulk so any spills or leaks can't run out of the edges of the flooring.

If you go back a month or two in the questions under Home > Flooring (link below your question), you will find at least one question with a bad experience with Allure. If you Google - Allure flooring Problems - you will find a bunch of horror stories.

Google - Allure flooring class action suit - and you can find more complaints and discussion of a class action suit on the product,

The comments remind me of the soft linoleum flooring made in the 1960's by several manufacturers, which had a soft core in the linoleum and was designed to only be held down at the edges by baseboard or doorway transition strips - because it was soft it buckled and bunched, snagged anytime any chopping block or appliance was moved over it (even if wheeled), and was also somewhat absorbent, so it gradually crumbled away. It WAS nice to walk on - just didn't cut it.

Draw your own conclusions, but if a web search on a product brings up a lot of negative reviews compared to positive ones, you have to consider what your chances of being one of the happy customers is.
