Went to HD the other day to use the bidroom for the 3 apts we've got to overhaul. Had planned on using the Allure we'd been getting as well as getting more for the house.
Spent an hour or so working on the list, getting the numbers, talking to the guy at the pro desk only to have our bid come back w/ only $70 off! WTH? Last time we did it we saved a few $100. To say I was miffed? I almost said the F word outloud and I only say that when Phil has mad me really really mad. I mean, REALLY mad--or the idiot brother. lol
Anyway, on to Lowes. We talk to our guy, Big John, at the Pro desk, says he can work from the HD list but go look at the flooring to see if you find anything comparable there. Hadn't liked the look of the vinyl plank before but that was months ago when they came out w/ some paper thin crap that I could break with 2 fingers. 'lo and behold there is a new section of Armstrong stuff. Looking it over I see a color "gunstock" that is marked down from $57 to $31 a box and it covers 36 sq ft as opposed to the 24 in Allure.
Phil checked reviews, John finds out that the Walmart used it in their eye and jewelry center several years ago and it's still going strong so sold on that. We're going to give it a whirl. I picked up all the clearance of it I could from 2 stores and got enough to do 4 apts-living/dining/kitchen. If we don't like it of course I'll schlep it all back. But I'm thinking it's got to be better than sheet vinyl and certainly better than carpet. I'd put it in the whole apt including the bedrooms if I could convince Phil to do that.
Anyone else used it?
