How to Write a Flooring Review

When was the last time you bought something without first scouring through reviews online? I will read through a ridiculous number of reviews to be sure I am making the right decision. Four hundred reviews on this pair of shoes? I don’t mind if I do! That’s just for a pair of shoes, by the way. If we’re talking about a bigger purchase that I’ll have to live with for years to come – like flooring, well, it’s time to bring on the heavy duty research. Because we know it’s important to you, too, we here at Armstrong felt it was time to open up our site for flooring reviews.


If reviews help me make my decision to buy a product, I feel obligated to pay it forward…that is to write my own review. Why? Well, I like sharing my opinions. It makes me feel important, like someone else might be helped. If the product gives me any emotion, I want other people to know!

Like reviews you might read on other goods and services websites, we expect reviews on our site to be sincere and honest. You’ll see only reviews from people who have purchased and installed flooring, not just looked at it in a store. Also, we don’t believe in showing only the good reviews. We want the reviews to be helpful to you, and that means showing the good, the bad, and the fabulous!

Here are some tips for writing a flooring review:

•   Be descriptive. Tell readers about the flooring product you bought.
•   Share some details about the project (what room was it in? New construction or remodel?)
•   Did you install it yourself or have a professional do it? How easy was it to install?
•   What do you like most about the flooring? Durability, look, feel underfoot?
•   What is it like to clean or maintain?
•   Write naturally about the things you like and dislike about your flooring product.

    We had our Armstrong Vinyl installed in our kitchen & dining area more than 25 years ago. It has been easy to clean & wears really well. When I need to do more rooms, I will certainly use Armstrong.

    I recently had a gorgeous floor installed in my kitchen using the Cera-Roma Vinyl Tiles. What a dramatic difference these 16×16 tiles made in the overall ambiance of my kitchen. I get so many compliments! I chose the Canyon Shadow tiles and they are so easy to keep clean, they wear well, and the shine and texture of the tiles look so very elegant. The recommended grout matches perfectly and is not the sandy-type that stains and doesn’t wear well. This grout is impervious to water, wear and staining. Ceramic tiles are cold and hard on my legs. These tiles are warm and not as rigid as ceramic tiles. I dropped a glass on the floor and it didn’t break! While standing for long periods cooking, etc. my legs no longer hurt! The overall feel and look of my kitchen is better than I anticipated and I will certainly use Armstrong flooring products again!

    While the distributor/installer was one of, if not, the best I have ever hired, Busenbark Carpet of Missouri, the floor they installed, an Armstrong vinyl plank flooring is definitely the worst ever. After a perfect installation, within 4 months the planks began to separate, primarily at the long ends. Busenbark has been out and applied a special caulk to fill in the gaps, but the buckling is still apparent. This was not a cheap floor. We are very disappointed with the floor and it is depressing to think that we may have to rip up our furnishings and base board to replace it. I’d love to write a review, but I don’t think you would like what I have to say. We went with Armstrong because we thought we were buying quality. This floor was obviously an untested product and, again, we are very disappointed.
