Hi hello and thank you for your question.

You will need about 9 boxes and that's accounting 10-12 % waste for the cuts.

Hope this helps,

You would need a min if 8 boxes to do the room. Depending on the patterns and the cuts you might need an extra case or two. The standard is 10% over the needed amount.

If the room is square without many cutouts, 7 cases should be sufficient. It allows about a 10% waste factor.

Hello Peaches and thank you for your question.

Your kitchen floor is 13 feet x 7 feet = 91 square feet.

You should purchase a minimum of 10% extra to cover mistakes, trimming, for future needs and replacement (if damage occurs). If you are installing on a diagonal pattern, you should increase your purchase by 15% to allow for the pattern.

The 10% overage adds 9 more square feet for a total of 100 square feet. The 15% overage adds 14 more square feet for a total of 105 square feet.

Each case of Allure ULTRA has 8 planks with a total of 19.8 square feet per case. You will need to purchase 5 cases (6 cases if installing a diagonal pattern).

For best results, it is important to purchase cases from the same RUN # (dye lot). Different run #’s can have shade variations. If you do have more than one run #, the manufacturer highly recommends that you install planks from 4 or 5 different cases from different run #’s at one time. Randomly mixing the planks in the installation will insure a more natural looking floor.

Best wishes on your project.

You need about 250 square feet which will give you an extra 10% for cuts. Look at how many square feet are in the box and divide 250 by that number to see how many boxes you need.

I can't help you with when the flooring will come, but believe me, you should wait for it. I waited and I am so happy I did. It is well worth the wait. I shopped all around while I waited for the backorder and couldn't find anything I liked as well. Finally, I was able to order it, which I did about 10 days ago, and it is now installed and it is the best flooring I have ever seen! It is absolutely beautiful - well worth the wait. So you will be so pleased if you wait. Nothing can compare to it.

Hello cal and thank you for your question.

The manufacturer highly recommends that you do not install the TrafficMaster Allure Ultra Red Cherry Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring in homes that are not temperature controlled year-round (65-86 F). The adhesive will not function properly if exposed to long term heat or cold.

Best wishes on your project.

I can tell you from my own experience that the warranty does not cover wear on the floor. Only manufactures defects.

“the floor is scratch resistant (not scratch proof) but also, the floor was damaged after installation and is not a manufacturing defect.”

You probably could, technically, but I'd check with a contractor first because if one plank needs replacing for any reason, it would be nearly impossible to remove because you have to start from the first one against the wall. They're interlocking.

I want to install this in a laundry room but I am concerned about joint failures being under a washing machine. The washing machine creates some vibration in the room and I do not want to have to redo it. I will also be installing damping pads under the washing machine to help reduce the transfer of the vibrations to the foundation of the house. The subfloor is 3/4" plywood on joists over a crawlspace.
