Thank you for your question...we do not recommend using an underlayment, in most cases it will void the warranty. The only type of underlayment that is recommended is a 6 mill poly when installing Allure on a cement or concrete sub floor. You would have to use a laminent or wood threshhold between your carpte and or tile.

i hope that helps!

I talked to several people and was advised that if being used above grade on any type of subfloor that no underlayment was needed. I was doing a dinning room and living room on my 1st floor and laid it directly on the wood subloor. If laying in a basement on concrete I would recommend using an underlayment of your choice.

Regarding the transition I was able to tuck it under the transition piece I layed when I did the ceramic tile in my kitchen. But if nothing is pre-existing in your room I would say any typical transition piece would suffice, the only concern I may have is trying to nail into the scratch resistant surface of the floor. I would suggest drilling very small and shallow guide holes first so it does not crack the top of the plank.

I did not use an underpayment, but i made sure to prep the surface very well before i laid the floor.
As for a transition to tile or carpet- i cut and trimmed a transition to fit my specific needs.

Hi Judith,

Just in the essence of disclosure, this is not a laminate floor that you are looking at here. It's a resilient vinyl flooring; but it will do well for high-traffic areas. If you are indeed trying to find a laminate for high-traffic, then I would recommend looking at a Pergo XP product, much like the one linked below.

Ellen,
I first made sure that the floor was clean, using some warm water to get any dirt, etc. off of the floor. Then I used the Allure Clean & Polish liquid that adds a little bit of sealing quality to the flooring. It goes on with a damp sponge mop & after spreading it evenly on the entire floor, let it dry for 30+ minutes, then give it a second coat letting it dry another 30+ minutes, then, as the instructions state on the bottle, let it completely dry 2 hours before you set chairs, trash receptacles, etc on it. After 24 hours, you should be able to set heavy objects on it.
Adding this finishing solution makes the floor look great & cleaning it now is a breeze with just a little warm water along with a bit of mild soap.
You can see a couple of pictures I posted after installing the flooring in my review! …..

I've read that quarter round can be added to hide the expansion space. There is a side of my kitchen where quarter round will not work. What is recommended to fill the expansion space on this side?

Hi Jewels,

The expansion space is just that, room for the floor to expand. Thus it should not be filled in.

Filling it in may cause the flooring to buckle.

You may use vinyl, plastic or wood base board to cover the
expansion space.

Mike,
