Highlights:
- Just peel and stick! Pre-cut in plank sizes, it combines beauty with ease of installation.

- Backed with a 50 Year Warranty

Quick Installation Tip: Subfloor surface must be clean, smooth, and level. Not recommended for installation over radiant heat.

By CottonCandiCane

from Forney, TX

About Me:

Pros: BEAUTIFUL, Easy to cut, Easy To Install, Great price, Great price for money, Looks like real wood, Sticks good

Cons: Peel Off Back Tears Somet, Will Scuff

Best Uses: Anywhere

Comments about Tranquility  1.5mm North Perry Pine Resilient Vinyl Flooring: We used this product in our family, kitchen, nook and dining rooms. Hallway as well.
We laid it on top of cement. We took up carpet/padding/tack strips/filled holes/scraped/ swept/degreased floor/clean water then wiped it down with towels and let it dry for 30 min.
We then started laying the vinyl and everything stuck really well to the cement. Wish the width was a little more on the pieces but it looks gorgeous. I was really easy. It is very time consuming but the more we did it the faster we got.
Small complaint: the paper on the back that peels off gets stuck sometimes and that is a little irritating. I did find that if you can stand the tempature a little higher like 70°-75° then the backing comes off a little easier.
** Helpful hint on cement
Let the vinyl sit a few hours with the prepped floor the same temp @ 75°. Keep it that temp the whole laying time. Then once finished make it cooler in the room and you will have a tight fit!!

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy and good looking

By Grandpa Rich

from Kyle, Texas

About Me:

Pros: Easy Looks Good, Easy To Install, Looks good

Cons: Backing Rips While Removi, Glue is messy

Best Uses: Kids Rooms, Mobile Homes, Wet Areas

Comments about Tranquility  1.5mm North Perry Pine Resilient Vinyl Flooring: I am prepping a double-wide house for resale. This product is a great value. It is low priced, looks great and I installed it myself. I have installed other peel & stick flooring, but this is the best looking floor of that type I have used. Most people cannot tell if it is laminate or vinyl. I had a couple boxes where the glue was applied to the sides of the planks which made handling the pieces very frustrating and I had to clean the glop off of each piece. But the other 21 boxes were fine. Like others, I spent more time removing the backing paper than putting the floor down !!

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Tranquility  1.5mm North Perry Pine Resilient Vinyl Flooring: I used this item on my kitchen walls, under my cabinets. Product has adhesive on the back but it is not strong enough to stay stuck on the walls. Had to use GOOP on each panel to make it stick without falling off a few hours after applying to the walls.

Absolutely Gorgeous

By jujuz

About Me:

Pros: Easy To Install, Looks Fabulous, Very inexpensive

Cons: Doesn't stick very well

Best Uses: Used On My Kitchen Walls

Comments about Tranquility  1.5mm North Perry Pine Resilient Vinyl Flooring: I purchased this for my spa and 4 years later it still looks fabulous. It's so easy to clean and I never have to worry if a large amount of water spills. As a matter of fact, we have a major rain storm and the window blew open. I have no idea how long the rain was coming into the room. There was large puddles of water just sitting on top of the floor. I got a bunch of towels, absorbed all the water and the floor is still looking gorgeous. We did use extra glue due to the nature of our work and how often the floor gets washed. People cannot believe is not only NOT real wood, but also I only paid .79 per SF. You can't go wrong with this product.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy basement fix

By Cracker Jack

from Wisconsin

About Me:

Pros: great finished look

Cons: Cheap Paper Backing

Best Uses: Used On My Kitchen Walls

Comments about Tranquility  1.5mm North Perry Pine Resilient Vinyl Flooring: We used this in our basement laundrey room. We put it directly on the concrete. Stuck well and looked fantastic when finished, however, be prepared to get very sticky when installing it. Cuts well. We used a paper cutter and a scissor. The only issued we had was with the paper backing. It just didn't want to come off easy, tore alot (hence the sticky hands). I would recommend this product and would probably use it again. It's a great fix when you don't want to spend a lot of money.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I can't wait to do the rest of my home.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Questions & Answers
Q: How well does this flooring stand up to extreme temperature changes. Thinking of installing on our enclosed porch. But in the summer no a/c, winter, not heated.
Asked on 3/15/2015 by Mishelle likes to DIY from Columbus, NE

A: Storage area and Job site should be climate-controlled with temperatures of 65°F-75°F for this vinyl flooring.

No HVAC flooring;

Wood flooring is a dynamic material subject to changes in dimension as a result of changes in humidity in the surrounding environment. It is recommended that the rooms that will have prefinished wood installed be climate controlled with temperatures of 50 to 80 degrees F., preferably 65 to 75 degrees F. humidity of 35% to 55% maintained. In addition, the rooms should not be closed off from a normal air flow. Therefore with prefinished flooring, you will experience problems in a non-environmentally controlled area. Our most stable flooring is our engineered, bamboo, cork, vinyl, and laminate. They too recommend climate control in their expressed warranty's.

Urethane finish can't handle the dimensional changes that take place with extreme environmental shifts, HOWEVER you can use an unfinished hardwood (preferably quarter/rift sawn) finished with tung or other natural oils as with covered porch flooring. These site finished penetrating sealers expand and contract with the flooring without cracking.

Their is currently a sheet vinyl in there, but is old and in bad shape, and will be removed prior to installation. But the subfloor is uneven in certain spots.

Q: This question was asked of you Q: I am laying this resiliant flooring directly on plywood which is the room over my basement...do I need a
moisture barrier or some underlayment first??
Asked on 5/26/2014 by Sheila from Maine
1 answer
CUSTOMER CARE
A: No underlayment is used under peel and stick vinyl flooring. See installation information and subfloor requirements here

So if you say that to this person the PDF it says For rough or uneven wood subfloors use 1/4”-3/8” luan underlayment"...

I need to know the true answer we have laid some of this flooring and it is now pealing up. OUr floloring guy called the tech support and install number on the packaging and they said we were fine for laying it on that surface, yet it is pealing up in spots.
Asked on 9/26/2014 by notaflooringguy

A: No roll padded underlayment can be used under vinyl peel and sticks however "luan" or sanded plywood may be used to smooth rough or contaminated surfaces that may interfere with glue bond.

Asked on 8/21/2014 by Karen the DIYer from Cody Wy

Q: do u have to use chemicals to keep clean, or can i just use hot water and/or possibly vinegar water
Asked on 3/3/2014 by suzy homemaker from osceola, in

A: MAINTENANCE (Dos and DONTs)
DO
• Sweep or vacuum regularly.
• Use cleaning products safe for vinyl planks.
•TEST cleaning products before use. Mineral spirits applied to a clean rag can be used for spot cleaning.
•Use non-staining casters, floor protectors on chair and table legs to distribute furniture weight and protect against scratches and
indentation damage. (TRANQUILITY planks are scratch resistance, not scratch proof).
• Protect your floor against burns. Planks can be damaged by burns from a cigarette, matches, or other extremely hot items.
• Protect your floor from tracked-in dirt and grit particles by using natural-fiber mats at all outside entrances. Take the time to
remove any imbedded grit particles from shoe soles before entering the room. Mats with rubber backings can cause permanent
discoloration.
• TRANQUILITY planks have good resistance to stains, not affected by most common household spills; however, any spill should be
cleaned up immediately. The longer the spilled material is left on the floor, the greater the risk of permanently staining the floor.
DO NOT
• Do not use paste wax or solvent-based polishes.
• Do not use abrasive cleansers or mop with soap-based detergents, these products can leave a sticky film on your floor.
• Track in tar or asphalt from driveways, as this can also discolor vinyl.
• Use caution with stiletto type high heels on your floor, these can cause permanent damage.
• Avoid the use of rubber or latex-backed mats, as certain rubber compounds can permanently stain vinyl
(Consult the mat manufacturer to determine if the backing is safe for vinyl planks).
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight for prolonged periods; this can result in tile discoloration. Excessive temperatures might cause tile
expansion or edge curling. During peak sunlight hours, the use of drapes or blinds is recommended especially on patio doors, etc.,
that receive intense sunlight.
• (TRANQUILITY Peel and Stick planks are water-proof, however high moisture from the subfloor or flood mopping can adversely
affect the glue bond). DO NOT WASH INSTALLATION FOR 48 HOURS

Answered on 3/12/2014 by cc-3

Q: Is this product scratch and stain resistant?
Asked on 1/27/2014 by Rob from Greenwood, IN

A: Resistant; Yes.
Despite today's advanced technology, water spills, dirt and other abrasive substances can damage any floor's finish. Location, traffic patterns, how often the floor is vacuumed and cleaned, children and/or pets are all factors that influence wear and durability.

Q: I just wanted to know if the 1.5mm tranquility peel and stick could be used just on concrete floors or do i need another adhessive to go with it
Asked on 1/22/2014 by thomas from hurley, ms

A: Concrete and Moisture
TrafficMaster Pro cement sealer (MFG Model # : SS96614) is highly recommended for moisture protection and improve adhesive performance on cement surfaces.
• The surface must be smooth, clean, dry and free from dust.
• Concrete floors must have polyethylene plastic film moisture barrier installed between the concrete and the ground.
•It is highly recommended that proper moisture tests be carried out on any slab. Although there are several methods that can be used, a (RH) Relative Humidity or calcium chloride method is preferred. Calcium Chloride test results should not exceed 3 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft. in 24hours.
• Peel and Stick planks are water-proof, however high subfloor moisture or flood mopping can adversely affect the glue bond.
• Peel and Stick planks should not be installed on concrete floors where there is danger of hydrostatic pressure or water seepage.
• All cracks in the concrete should be filed with a latex Portland cement-based patching compound. Patching areas need to be primed when dried. (Do not use gypsum-based patching compounds.)
• Old adhesives from a previous installation should be removed by scraping before the new vinyl is installed.
• Peel and Stick planks are not recommend for use over black asphalt cutback adhesives or over light-weight Gypcrete.

And if so how can I make the surface level as we cant rip out the old vinyl without damaging the sub floor.
Asked on 10/9/2013 by Vanessa from United States

A: • Peel and Stick planks may be installed over existing sheet vinyl floors that are well-bonded to the subfloor. NOTE: Cushion, foam-back or perimeter type floors, and VCT floorings are not recommended and should be removed.
•All traces of wax, other surface coatings, or foreign matter must be removed in a way that does not damage the integrity of the
existing flooring or hinder a proper bond of the new flooring.
•Heavily embossed floors should be completely removed.

The installation instructions say that the concrete surface must be clean and level, and that polyethylene plastic film must be between the concrete and the ground. So do you stick these tiles to the polyethylene film? How does the film stay down while I'm installing it? I would think if I stuck something to some plastic film, it's just going to make the film move around. I would think if it could be installed over other vinyl and tile and all that, that I should be able to install it on concrete so long as it's clean and level without the plastic film. Can I? Do you sell the TrafficMaster Pro cement sealer they recommend?
Asked on 10/1/2013 by Amber from United States

A: The polyethylene plastic film must be between the concrete and the ground is referring to an 8 mill moisture barrier that would have been installed below the slab before it was poured.

Q: Can I put this over a tile floor?
Asked on 9/3/2013 by Jason from Dover, Tennessee

A: Old terrazzo or ceramic flooring subfloors shall be treated in the same manner as a concrete subfloor, with additional precautions. Surface coating or sealers must be completely removed by light sanding or other suitable effective methods and shall be filled or flat to a smooth surface with latex Portland cement-based patching compound.
• If these are to be used as a subfloor these must be checked for moisture and bond tests conducted.
• Remove all sealer, varnish, wax, oils and soil to prevent bond interference.
• Make surfaces level and smooth using a latex Portland cement-based patching compound.

Q: How would the vinyl flooring handle extreme temperatures?

Asked on 3/11/2013 by Jo-Ann from Canada

A: Avoid shocking the floor.
this vinyl flooring performs best with consistent indoor temperatures of 60°-80° F and indoor humidity levels of 30% - 50%. Maintaining the recommended acclimation levels even after the installation should be viewed as ongoing floor care. Your doing so will help to minimize expansion & contraction movement, and gaps.

Asked on 2/3/2013 by Mary from Menominee, MI

A: Floating Engineered hardwood, tongue and groove engineered and certain laminate flooring can be used over most radiant heat.  Some flooring does perform better than others with radiant heat applications. Floating Engineered flooring is easiest and performs very well over radiant heat as will some of our laminates (note: not all laminate flooring is recommended) The important thing is to follow the particular flooring manufacturer recommendations for radiant heat as well as sustaining recommended temperature and humidity. In addition the radiant heat manufacturer's recommended floor coverings must be considered as not all floors may be appropriate.

He has been known to have some occasional "accidents" during the day...will this provide a good moisture barrier should he have an accident?
Or is there something better?
Asked on 10/27/2012 by family with pet from WV

A: The vinyl itself probably will be "OK" from the occasional accident but the adhesive on the back could get compromised if repeated accidents occur.
WHAT’S COVERED (peel & stick)
Your Tranquility floor is warranted against finish wear from normal household conditions resulting wearing through the decorative finish and it will resist water damage under normal use conditions.
It is also warranted against milling, manufactured defects, color fading or discoloring, and edge curling. Waste factor is an industry term that refers to an allowance for manufacturing defects in flooring and is represented by a percentage. Accordingly, it is warranted that no more than 5% of the total square footage of your purchase will exhibit any manufacturing defects.
WHAT’S NOT COVERED
Moisture (or Lack of Moisture): Damages caused by moisture (such as leaking pipes, spills, wet mopping, pets, relative humidity, subfloor moisture, etc.) are excluded. Bond failure caused by excessive subfloor moisture is not covered.
Perhaps the Tranquility 4mm and 5mm solid vinyl click together products that can go in areas where moisture is a concern would be a better choice. Thank you for your inquiry.
