I placed the flooring in the area it was for and followed the instruction on the packages and the floor went down very easy. If your not patient, do not try it. The other comments seem to be from those who must have wanted a quick fix , no tools, no layout plan and a lack of time it takes to do a good job. I'm 75 and can read and follow instructions and I laid a 14'x26' room in one day (9 hours) by my self. Great product and looks great. All our friends love it and have asked me if I would put it there houses. Design Goes together and snaps when it is correct. I practiced with the pieces to make sure I was doing it right. Cut three different size pieces, as per my layout, I need 9 sets. I put the starter ends at one end of the room and the ending pieces at the far end of the room. I had to cut the ending pieces to fit and allow 3/8" at the end. Durability Have 4 dogs and they are no problem. Just spray the swifter pad with cleaner and the floor cleans right up. Grand kids love it and all who come to the house comment on how it looks and feels as you walk on it. Ease of Installation It does take some tools. A power saw, I used a 5" craftsman 12 volt saw, folding 6' rule and scissors to cut the underlayment. I took my time, started on the longest wall and went at it. I cut 3/8" strips to put along the wall and where the floor went around the cabinets. I was very pleased with the results.
