Installing Oak Trafficmaster Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring

Looking for a great DIY weekend project for yourself and your teenage son? How about installing Oak Traffic Master Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring? If you are looking for vinyl flooring that looks like wood and your budget is on the tight side, this may be one of the more affordable options on the market.

Oak Traffic Master Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring allows for a fairly quick job, as you can install the floor over your old sub floor in many cases. In addition, thanks to the easy GripStrip technology, no time-consuming, messy glue-job is required. According to reviews, Oak Traffic Master Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring apparently comes so close to the real thing, that you can even feel the knots!

Vinyl Trafficmaster Allure Flooring planks are waterproof enough to be used even in bathrooms, provided that you follow the installation instructions to the letter! It is basically a question of scoring and snapping. Then the unique GripStrip of one plank is placed on that of the next one, before pressing them together. Of course, you have to allow for cutting time for a nice fit around basins, etc. This is the one part that may be tricky.

For an affordable floor, the 25 year residential warranty sounds quite impressive. Check warranty details with your supplier though. Also make sure that you know exactly how to care for the floor after installation. Using the wrong product to clean the floor, may void the warranty.

Even if you have kids or pets in your home, Oak Traffic Master Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring should be tough enough to withstand the punishment! All that is required is a bit of common sense, such as keeping pet nails nicely trimmed and using natural area rugs in doorways. Soft felt pads underneath furniture feet will also provide some protection.

And, if the oak line isn't to your taste, you can consider one of the following:

  • Vinyl Trafficmaster Allure Planks in Country Pine
  • Vinyl Trafficmaster Allure Cherry
  • Vinyl Trafficmaster Allure Tiles in Sedona
  • Resilient Trafficmaster Allure in Teak
  • Resilient Trafficmaster Allure Vinyl Flooring in Hickory

    As if this doesn't give you enough of a choice, you can also take a look at laminate options such as:

  • Hanover Oak Traffic Master Laminate Flooring
  • Golden Oak Trafficmaster Laminate Flooring
  • Red Oak Trafficmaster Laminate Flooring

    The days of glue or nails seem to be long gone. Oak Traffic Master Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring seems to be suitable even for a DIY novice. One tip I can give, is that you read the installation instructions with care and allow yourself plenty of time and tackle the project with a pocketful of patience.
