This is my test section for the trafficmaster flooring. Read tons of reviews about it, people either love it or hate it. It was super easy to install, I think it looks great - even though there are some imperfections ( my fault lol). I can't wait to see how it does, I think it might be a great option for our house. I wanted something that was durable ( 4 dogs need something buff), waterproof ( think dogs again) and affordable, also something easy to install. Cleaning was a big factor also, I wanted something easy to clean & low maintainence - mostly because of the dogs - it would be nice not to freak out evertime a muddy paw runs through my doorway on accident. Yes I have carpet phobia.
this is laid directly over some 1970's vinyl tiles that were orange & brown ( wood subfloor). what a face lift!!
the white paper is kinda like wax paper - it comes with the planks to keep them seperate & clean, I taped it over the exposed adhesive on the end of the flooring. to keep it clean until we decide if we really like it or not.
I think the floor looks beautiful with no flash!
