This is so easy to install a blind monkey could do it. I have a floor with old carpet glue on it that I didn't want to sand off. I taped these planks together from underneath using strips of carpet seam tape and it worked great. They feel nice underfoot, softer and smoother than more expensive brands like Flor, and the overall look is decent. However, the backing is not water proof like Flor tiles. My biggest complaint was that several of the planks were very poor quality with the carpet not going all the way to the edge of the plank so that many were unusable. I just ordered another box in hopes that there will be enough good ones in it that I can replace the really bad looking ones. At a quarter of the cost of the cheapest tiles Flor makes, you can afford to order a box or two extra.
