Thank you for your question. Install proper floor protectors (nylon or felt) on all furniture legs used on resilient flooring. Protectors will allow chairs to move easily over the floor without
scuffing or scratching (felt protectors can pick up small grit and still cause slight abrasions). Clean
protectors on a regular basis to remove any grit that may have become embedded on the bottom of the furniture leg. For any swiveled type office chairs and other rolling furniture, please install
2" wide non-staining flat casters. Do not use rubber casters. Please note that this pattern is warrantied for residential use only.

Thank you for your question. Allure is suitable over radiant heat only if these requirements are met: Electric and Hydro systems are acceptable. Subfloors should have been operational for at least one week prior to installation to calibrate temperature settings. The temperature should never exceed 85F (30C) during and after installation. Radiant components must be a minimum of ½" below allure flooring.

Acid stained concrete

Madison Heights, MI
about 6 in. x 36 in. Cherry Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring (24 sq. ft. / case) on
January 20, 2016
I'm looking to install this product over an acid stained cement basement floor. A product with shark grip was added to the final top coat over the acid stained floor. Would there be any issues laying this vinyl on a cement floor with the shark grip? It just makes the floor a little rougher feeling to the touch. Other than that it's flat and level. Also, I have a crack from wall to wall in the cement down the center of the room. Is this okay to lay the vinyl over as long as the crack is in the center of the plank running the same direction?
