    In this review, we’re taking an in-depth look at Mannington Vinyl Plank Flooring.

    Twenty years ago, vinyl meant tacky, fake-looking flooring. But the technology has come a long way since then. It is now possible to get luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring that looks like genuine hardwood, stone, or tile, but at a fraction of the cost.

    In addition to offering savings, LVP (or LVT) flooring is easy to install, and more durable and easy to maintain than hardwoods. It can also be installed in areas such as bathrooms and basements where moisture is present, spaces where hardwood is forbidden.

    But not all LVP flooring offers the same level of quality, and if you aren’t careful, you can end up with flooring that looks just as fake and cheap as vinyl flooring did 20 years ago.

    But we recommend Mannington Vinyl Plank Flooring as one of the brands you can trust when you are looking for LVP flooring. They offer good prices, at between $3.50 and $5.50 per square foot, which is pretty much the industry average but with above-average quality.

    Read our full Mannington LVP flooring review to decide whether they are the right brand for you.

    The Advantages Of Vinyl Plank Flooring

    Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring has become one of the more notable trends in home building and remodeling. LVP claims that it lets homeowners get the wood look but without the wood price or inconvenience.


    With new, realistic designs coming to market every year, you can find LVP flooring that looks like genuine hardwood or even stone. But unlike hardwood flooring, LVP is affordable, easy to install and maintain, durable, and versatile. DIY installation can also help you save a lot of money.

    Mannington LVP floors offer all these advantages, plus being soft underfoot so that it is easy on the knees and sound-absorbing, so less footstep echoes around your home.

    Ease of cleaning is another major advantage, requiring only sweeping and occasional mopping. Vinyl planks are durable and resistant to most drops, spills, and temperature/humidity fluctuations. You can even install LVP flooring in areas where you have a lot of moisture such as bathrooms and basements.

    The Advantages Of Vinyl Plank Flooring

    In case you are still shopping multiple flooring types for your project (i.e. wood, tile, laminate, carpet, etc.),, check out our recent article on the pros and cons of vinyl plank flooring.

    The Disadvantages Of Vinyl Plank Flooring

    But of course, no flooring is perfect, and you should be aware of the compromises you are making when you invest in vinyl plank flooring.

    First and foremost, while it may look like solid wood flooring, unlike genuine hardwood floors, vinyl flooring will not add much in terms of value to your home. Plus, while your hardwood floors can last upwards of 100 years with resurfacing, most vinyl floors have a lifespan of about 20 years. And once a plank is damaged, there is no way to repair it—it must be replaced.

    Also, remember that, while LVP flooring is more durable than solid wood floors in terms of scuffs and scrapes, it is not scratch-proof. It is also susceptible to fading in direct sunlight.

    Finally, there are environmental and health concerns. The majority of vinyl flooring is not biodegradable, so when you rip it out and dispose of it, it will sit in landfill forever. Further, some vinyl flooring emits volatile chemicals, called VOCs, which can compromise the air quality of your home and result in health issues.

    About Mannington

    Mannington is a 4th-generation, family-owned company based in New Jersey. The company offers a large product collection including vinyl (rolls), laminate, luxury vinyl plank, and engineered hardwood floors.

    About Mannington

    For the purposes of this review, we will focus only on their LVP flooring products. Their website has a lot of information and great photos. However, we found it took extra effort to distinguish between the rolled vinyl flooring and the LVP at first glance.

    They sell their luxury vinyl products under the Adura brand name.

    LVP Flooring Lines

    Mannington’s line features roughly 116 different styles that replicate the looks of stone and wood, including some with unique graphic designs.

    The Adura line is their main LVP brand. Accordingly, it offers a wide variety of tiles and planks in warm browns, cool grays, and even some very dark hues and patterns.

    You can get AduraFlex, their glue-down LVT flooring, which is ideal for spaces where you don’t want any transition strips. There is also AduraRigid, which has a solid polymer core for a stronger, more durable, and indentation-resistant floor. They recommend it for gyms, kids’ rooms, and kitchens.

    Adura Meridian is their LVP product that recreates the look of weathered concrete. These cool, modern and somewhat industrial-looking floors are available in 16” x 16” tiles or 6” x 18” planks.

    Interestingly, one of the distinctive things about Mannington’s “stone” tiles is that people can use them with or without grout. In this way, one can create a truly authentic tiled floor look. (You should use their proprietary grout product specially formulated for use with their LVT.)

    Their grout is available in eight popular colors. Conveniently, it can be used with most Mannington Adura tiles.

    AduraMax is a step up from the standard Adura line and features popular, trendy styles and patterns. Don’t forget its HydroLoc waterproof core. Thicker and more rigid than ordinary vinyl, AduraMax is available in easy-to-assemble locking planks.

    Also, it features Mannington’s ultra-quiet, pre-attached pad for superior sound reduction and greater comfort underfoot. Planks can be installed quickly on all grade levels and over most existing floors and subfloors.

    Another noteworthy feature of AduraMax is the ScratchResist aluminum oxide surface protection. According to Mannington, this patented technology “offers the industry’s best wear, scratch, and stain resistance.”

    AduraMaxAPEX is their most contemporary, on-trend collection featuring popular colors and textures. It’s got longer, wider planks, variable width planks, embossed-in-register (EIR) detail, and painted bevels, which offer a truly realistic look.

    Essentially, this line is AduraMax (waterproof core and sound absorption) with more modern style options.

    Environmental Considerations

    One of the main concerns that homeowners encounter when shopping for LVP floors is air quality. It’s not news that traditional vinyl flooring can emit harmful toxins.

    However, most reputable LVP manufacturers are now producing products with new “ingredients” that significantly reduce, if not eliminate, these toxins. Mannington is no different.

    They say the “vast majority of our flooring is FloorScore certified for indoor air quality.” The vast majority but perhaps not all? At any rate, Mannington LVT floors are manufactured without formaldehyde, the main toxin-causing component in older vinyl floors.

    Care And Maintenance

    Cleaning and maintaining a Mannington floor appears to be similar to other brands of vinyl plank flooring, with a few caveats. This is true especially when it comes to polishing the floor.

    Like several other brands, Mannington wants you to use their floor cleaners. Try using Mannington Award Series Rinse-Free Cleaner—or a “clear, non-sudsy ammonia.”

    While some other brands say “never” to using floor polish, Mannington does allow for polishing if you’re looking for a shiny floor. According to Mannington, you can use polish or “mop and shine” solutions.

    As with most floor polish, occasional stripping and reapplication of polish may be necessary. Not surprisingly, they recommend their own Mannington Heavy Duty Cleaner and Stripper.

    It’s important to remember not to wax or buff their LVP floors. To that end, find details on all their cleaning procedures by checking out their Care and Maintenance page.

    Back to Top


    Keeping in line with the industry standard, Mannington Adura floors come with a limited lifetime residential warranty and a 6-year light commercial warranty.

    Price And Where To Buy

    As we have already said, Mannington LVP flooring is pretty much middle of the market when it comes to cost, setting you back between $3.50 and $5.50 per square foot.

    Their standard Adura lines are at the lower end of the scale, costing between $3.50 and $4.00 per square foot. As you upgrade to the Max style and its extra durability, expect to pay between $4.30 and $5.00. If you are interested in their contemporary Apex band, expect to pay a minimum of $5.30 per square foot, and up to $6.00 for their premium lines.

    Price And Where To Buy

    You can buy directly online from Mannington, or you will find that their products are available at a number of big box stores across the country, though with a much more limited selection.

    As with any flooring decision, you should view samples in person, in the room where they will go. Mannington offers free samples, up to five per customer, which arrive within five to seven working days. It is easier to order these through your local Mannington retailer than directly.

    To view their product lines, try out Mannington’s Virtual Decorator (very cool, BTW) or visit their website.

    Overall Opinion

    We’ve seen a lot of positive reviews for Mannington floors online but have also seen one red flag. They say their products are produced in the U.S., but some components appear to still be manufactured in China. Apparently, some consumers report receiving boxes stamped “Made in China.”

    We have heard the company will transition to having all products manufactured here in the States. Overall, homeowners appear to be very satisfied with Mannington. In this light, they remain one of the top brands in the market today.

    FAQs About Mannington Flooring

    Is Mannington Vinyl Good?

    Customer reviews of Mannington Vinyl flooring are overwhelmingly positive, suggesting that the brand lives up to its marketing promise. Their range of styles and designs is particularly good, and their LVP flooring is easy to install, durable, and water-resistant.

    How Much Does Mannington Adura Cost?

    Depending on which line your go for, expect to pay between $3.50 and $5.50 per square foot for Mannington Adura flooring. Their standard Adura line is at the lower end, while you should expect to pay at the top end for their Max and MaxAPEX lines.

    Can You Put Heavy Furniture On Vinyl Plank Flooring?

    Vinyl plank flooring is relatively soft underfoot, which means it can dent and buckle under heavy weights and may scratch and dent with sharp furniture feet, especially if they are dragged across the floor. While most standard household furniture should not damage your LVP flooring, you can afford yourself extra protection by attaching felt protectors to the feet of all furniture.

    Mannington flooring asserts that their LVP flooring is indentation-resistant, so should stand up to all but the hardest wear and tear.

    Does Vinyl Plank Flooring Need An Underlayment?

    Most LVP flooring, including that manufactured by Mannington, comes with an underlayment attached to the planks, so there is no need to purchase and install an underlayment separately. This makes LVP flooring both more cost-effective and easier to install.

    Is Vinyl Plank Better Than Laminate?

    Whether vinyl plank flooring or laminate is best is a matter of preference and where you intend to install your flooring.

    Both options are cost-effective alternatives to hardwood floors, but laminate tends to look more realistic and be more durable in terms of scuffs and scrapes. However, just like hardwood floors, laminate does not hold up well under moisture.

    For bathrooms, basements, and other areas where moisture is an issue, vinyl is the superior flooring choice. Vinyl is also easier to install if you are planning to tackle the project DIY.

    The Verdict

    Mannington flooring produces high-quality vinyl flooring that doesn’t break the bank. While they don’t have the widest range of options available, what is on offer is diverse and contemporary, and most redecorators are likely to find something that appeals to them.

    Almost all of their lines are waterproof, scratch-resistant, fade- and stain-resistant, indedentation-resistant, and also easy to clean and maintain. They also come with a FloorScore certification to guarantee they will not introduce toxic chemicals into the air.

    Combine this with Mannington’s limited lifetime warranty on residential installations and 6-year light commercial warranty, and you can buy their product in confidence. While some shoppers won’t like that some of the flooring components are manufactured in China, others will be satisfied with the affordability and quality that Mannington offers.

    74 thoughts on “Mannington Vinyl Plank Flooring Review”

    1. We are thinking of having Adura flex meridian carbon or steel installed with grout in our bathroom (new construction). The samples look beautiful. Has anyone had any experience with either of those?

    2. Any experience with Adura Rigid? We are about to invest about 12,000 into our floors and am a bit concerned about the reviews I’m seeing. Would be in our kitchen dining and 2 living spaces. Dockside Pier is the color we are looking at. We have a Dog that occasionally pukes bile :/ and has very sharp bear like paws so am concerned about scratches.

      1. Hi Abigail, I will try to save you the $20k heartache my wife and I are going through. We’re building a new house and installed 3000+ sq ft of Adura rigid after being assured by the manufacturer that it is the best option for in-floor heating, temperature variations, and is durable to daily wear and tear. Our house isn’t even finished, we haven’t yet moved in, and the floor is self-destructing. We have stalled it carefully per the manufacturer recommendations. The issue we are having is this: wherever the sun comes through a glass door or window, the floor expands and contracts so much that we have 6ft bubbles and disconnecting/buckling joints.
        This is the scary part-

        We are in the midst of filing a claim, and thus far Mannington’s solution is to cover the problem spots with area rugs, don’t place heavy furniture (ie your couch or bed) on it, and always keep blinds closed when the sun could shine through a window.

        Yes, you read that right: the fix for this delicate princess flooring is to protect it from natural light, don’t put things on it, and when it self-destructs, cover it with a rug. Mannington is a disaster to work with as a company, and they Do Not stand behind this product. I am out 14k in material and 6k in labor. Please steer clear and avoid this train wreck.

      2. I had this flooring (Adura) put in recently. It is without the most disgusting floor I have EVER seen. I had it put into my bathroom so it would all be one piece instead of the tiles with borders around them. This flooring is VERY textured and impossible to clean. I asked the company why they would make flooring like this and their response was “so it is not slippery” What?! I wanted a smooth floor and instead I am stuck with this because I cannot afford to redo it. Every time I look at it I get angry. BTW customer service is non existent. I wish I could post pictures of the flooring so you can see how nasty it is.

    3. Hello. We are looking at the Adura Max Sausalito Sunset to install in all of our downstairs. I am a little scared of some of the reviews I’ve read regarding quality of product as well as color. How is your flooring holding up? Does anyone have this color installed, and when it was shipped, did the product look like the sample. The sample looks completely different than the online pictures.

      1. I had Sausalito sunset installation 3 years ago! I love it! The online pictures always look a little different! I used the samples under different light and in the areas I was going to replace. I had hardwood floors that were very hard to keep up with wax etc.. My floors are very easy to maintain with vacuuming and quick steam mop!

    4. Rochelle Greigg

      We had our Adura plank vinyl floor installed by a professional installer nine years ago in our new home. It was beautiful, and the light color never showed dirt or dust as others described. However, the flooring scratched and dented easily from the beginning. Also, the pieces of flooring separated in all of the areas where it was installed–kitchen, dining area, laundry (which gets no direct sunlight), and entry way. I am very disappointed in this product and would not install it again.

        1. We had Adura Max installed a month ago…I have lost track of the number of scratches and dents in it already. I am so disgusted as I spent $10k. I called the company and they didn’t care. I am afraid what a dog may do to it. Please don’t buy the Adura Max

    5. We had the Adura professionally installed two years ago and couldn’t be happier with it. No scratches (the dog door is located in this room) and easy to clean. Would recommend this product to friends and family.

      1. Do you happen to have any left over Mannington Adura LockSolid ALS612 Heritage Timber vinyl flooring? We are searching all over the world for two boxes to finish our downstairs. They’ve discontinued this and now it is only offered in Max and MaxApex, and we’re trying to prevent pulling it all up and starting over, considering it’s only a few years old. Any help is appreciated!

    6. I was considering Mannington till I read these comments. I have even sent away for some free samples to try (they come today) and was impressed with a video that showed just how scratch resistant they are (using a coin, no mark at all on floor). This was to replace recently installed vinyl plank that was full of scratches on day 2 after installation and planks noisy, lifting and cracking (not a Mannington product). Contractor cut corners and replaced my request with their own choice and refuses to fix. Grr. Anyway, for those that suggest going elsewhere…where? What brand should I look at? Finding hard to find a brand that does not have similar comments to these.

    7. We are considering the Mannington adura rigid for a seasonal home in Maine. Unheated in the winter. Does anyone have any experience with the Adura Rigid in a seasonal home?

      We are considering the Margate in coastline. Any thoughts?

      1. Mannington does not stand behind their product. It looks good for about a month, but anything can dent it from a high heel to a dogs paw. Mannington does NOT stand behind this product.

        1. Do you mind sending me a picture of your floor ? I have a small sample and it’s hard to tell what it would look like on a large scale. Thank You…

    8. We installed Mannington Adura plank flooring a couple of years ago. Gaps and breakage soon appeared. Overall the product is fragile. It breaks easily and scratches. We now have to replace the entire floor. We will do so with a different product. We advise not investing in this particular product. total garbage.

    9. Just had Adura Max and Adura Flex installed and we are quite disappointed in the colour match between the 2 products. We really like the Adura Max that was used in the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room but we had to use Adura Flex in the hall over existing ceramic tile. The same pattern was used in both installations but the colour is very different. The manufacturers rep came to inspect it and couldn’t see the difference however it is like night and day to us. The rep had his mind made up before he got here and wasn’t prepared to do anything. I would not recommend this company!

    10. I am looking to get my entire 2nd floor redone with AduraMax Natural or Honey Plank. I am not sure whether to remove the existing engineered hardwood floor or to lay the AduraMax over the existing floor. I was told the if the installation over the existing floor is not perfectly flat, then the floor will make noise if walked on. Anyone have any experience on this?

      1. I’m curious if you decided to install the AduraMax. I am strongly considering installing the Natural in my house. It’s the only floor I found that is a light to medium brown with little variation. I would love to know if you did install it, how do you like it?

        1. I just had the honey oak floor laid. I love the color. Only big complaint is how it shows scuffs. I’ve tried to remove them with Nathan but they keep coming back Now no shoes permitted on the floor.

    11. I’m getting ready to order lvt planks or tiles? Has anyone had experience with tiles instead of planks from Mannington Acura max?

    12. We had the Mannington Adura Corinthian installed. What you must be aware of is what is NOT covered in their warranty, the GROUT. The lvt is so flexible the grout cracks. Had it repaired 4 times to no avail. Don’t install using their grout. Mannington does not include or stand behind their grout even though they manufacture it.

    13. So disappointed in Adura Max Acacia African Sunset Mannington flooring I could cry.
      Less than 30 days old and I absolutely cannot keep this floor looking clean. It shows footprints, dog prints, marks and shadows within hours after cleaning and mopping. I bought Mannington cleaning products but the floor still won’t stay clean. I spent over $18,000. only to discover I made a big mistake in buying this flooring. Personally I feel there must be some kind of defect and/or poor quality in this floorings top layer which attacks and absorbs footprints, dog prints etc. – Again, I absolutely HATE my new Mannington flooring and my constant effort to keeping it looking clean. Very labor intensive!

      1. Makes me feel horrible. I just ordered this same flooring for my whole house. Now I’m scared what I’m getting. I even called and asked about this and of course there is no problem with the flooring–says the distributor.
        PLEASE is there anyone happy with this flooring and having no problems???
        I ordered the planks

        1. I had the adura max plank (napa dry cork) installed over 18 months ago, on my entire main floor. I love it! We have a 90 pound german shepherd. this floor is so much better than the engineered hardwood flooring we replaces. There are no scratches and it hides the fur very well! It is so easy to vacuum and wipe up this floor, too. The only thing I do notice is the water marks after the dog drinks, but only when the light shines in the front door in the mornings. If you have animals, this is the best floor, yet, and i have had tile, lino, hardwood and laminate.

        2. We are very disappointed in the flooring , we remodeled our kitchen, had the flooring placed from front door, into bathroom, laundry room, eating area and kitchen. There are so many area the floor is lifting and curling. My grandson was able to pickup half of one of the planks. Very, very disappointed In the product . Now, they said they will replace the product but not the install …disappointing!

      2. We installed the same crap! We hate it, it scratches, it shows every print, and it is super expensive for glorified linoleum, which would actually hold up better!

        1. Did mannington do anything to rectify this? My flooring is doing the same and have had it less than six months and I’m hating it too.

      3. We do not like our floor either! We do not have kids or pets. We don’t wear shoes in the house. The flooring is scratched and Mannington would not do anything about it when I emailed them. Huge waste of much money!

        1. I feel fortunate to have found this column. I am in the middle of a remodel and my contractor said everyone is doing LVT. I took down a wall between my kitchen and living room. My living room has gorgeous exotic hardwood, so I am trying to complement whatever will meet it. I just can’t get into LVT. I tried Coretec Plus but nothing looked right. Then I found the Mannington Acacia African Sunset. I took a sample home, works okay, but it was filthy just lying in the empty space. And expensive. I’m just not in love with it for the price and, reading these reviews, I think I’ll keep looking.

      4. I have this same problem! I have the the Audra sand color. Does not matter what cleaner I use, there are always foot prints. We have resorted to wearing house shoes (slides or flip flops) to stop the foot prints. I hate this floor!

      5. The problem may be the dark color not the manufacturer or LVT. I’ve had dark floors before and every crumb, footprint or piece of lint shows up. I have natural oak now. But there is nothing as beautiful as a dark floor.

    14. What a costly mistake to believe and trust in Mannington flooring. Less than 30 days ago I had installed Audra Max Acacia African Sunset Luxury vinyl flooring and paid just a little under $20,000. to cover my entire house. The color is beautiful but it is IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP CLEAN. I use only their recommended products for cleaning and every single day I have to mop because of smudge marks, footprints, dog prints and other marks that appear within hours of mopping. I am 72 yrs old and have always taken pride in keeping clean floors. However, Mannington flooring has now made me a slave to daily mopping. Spot cleaning only makes it worse! Their advertisement of low upkeep is not true! I am extremely unhappy with the quality of this product along with $20,000. out of pocket loss. It actually depresses me to think I am stuck with this flooring throughout my entire house for the rest of my life. Hopefully I can save someone else of this costly mistake.

      1. We purchased Mannington Ardura vinyl planks in African Sunset for a 10×12 ft kitchen in February of 2019. I Hate this floor.! It is beautiful to look at but an absolute nightmare to keep clean. It shows every watermark from any thing, dog drinking , scratches from paws and this is from a 15 lb mini schnauzer! I mop several times a day to try to limit the spotting and smearing. Ironically, the mannington rinse free cleaner leaves it looking worse by showing mop strokes! I bought their high gloss polish hoping I could make it tolerable. Guess what? It lasts about a day and the water spots, smears NEVER go away. I followed all their cleaning “rules” and this floor is the dirtiest looking floor I have ever seen. I am so angry and disappointed that they continue to state it is easy to keep clean.
        It is disgusting. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! Trust these reviews and save yourself daily work. Put your money someplace else in a quality floor. I hope to keep others from making this mistake.

    15. I am so surprised to hear of all of these negative comments on Mannington AduraMax. We had ours installed two years ago in our kitchen and absolutely love it!! I researched before I bought it and made the decision to go with the Napa Tannin. We have a Siberian Husky and my son brings his two dogs when he visits – an English Mastiff and a Yellow Lab. I needed a floor that would hold up to this kind of traffic and that was waterproof!! This flooring fit the bill…..I am currently looking to redo our bathroom with the Adura Max as well. We did have it professionally installed and I follow the care directions carefully including what type of rugs you can use with it.

      1. Hi….could you send me a picture of your Tannin floor. .I have a small sample but would love to see it in a bigger picture ? Thank You

    16. Am contemplating Adura Mannington Corinthia. What are your thoughts? It’s going in a heavily trafficed area–our eat-in kitchen

    17. Wondering if anyone has used the mannington adura rigid product in a 3 season room? We are in northern Minnesota and there are extreme temps. I was told it holds up under extreme temps.

        1. Hi Marlene, Save yourself a disaster and see my above comment, and I hope you find something that works well for you.

    18. I had Mannington vinyl plank flooring installed in new construction at a cost of over $15,000. The product installed in a portion of the home was to have a tile look. Instead of being smooth like tile, the surface is horrible looking and has a sticky scratchy sandpaper type finish. Your socks stick to it and there’s no way it would be an “easy clean” floor. I haven’t moved in and refuse to do so until this product is removed and replaced. I will be in the dealer’s store, first thing tomorrow morning.

    19. We have Adura Max and love everything except one thing. There are shell paths here and a worker came in when we were away, to fix something, kept his shoes on and the shells tore up the surface of the floor wherever he walked. Things dropped also dent and tear this floor quickly. We now have “no shoes” signs plastered everywhere and pray not to drop things.

    20. We purchased the adura max product for our new home. It is a great product and is holding up beautifully. We used the Aspen plank in the kitchen and love how easy it is to clean. We used the stone tile look in the bathrooms and it is just like new after one year. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to have a floor that is easier to walk and stand on than tile. Also it is maintenance free except for cleaning.

      I am a realtor and recommend it to my clients over tile all the time. I tried another LVP from a different manufacturer in my old house and didn’t like the result at all. It was the same cost and way inferior to the adura max product.

      1. I have read reviews on here that say the surface of this tile is scratchy like sandpaper and has some sort of “film” covering it… didn’t have problems with this?

    21. Patti Austin-Murray

      We installed the Adura Max Napa Tannin – ‘floorscore certified, complying to strict indoor air quality standards’ – 6″x 48″ planks. This is a multi-colored knots in the wood pattern, is waterproof, oops-proof (scratch resistant), noise-proof, kid & pet friendly (we have two small 9lb dogs). Installed throughout the house with exception of the bedrooms/bathrooms.

      Our 1965 built, 2000 sq ft, ranch style home is on a raised foundation, with 2 inch solid oak subfloors. The flooring has a satin sheen. We are over the moon THRILLED and the multi-colored wood pattern is a perfect match for our Mission style wood furniture. It is flat gorgeous – no desire for a ‘shiny floor’ – we want satin. Easy care – comfortable and quiet. We had felt tips installed on all furniture and an area rug under our reclining couch. Not a single issue – this stuff is the BOMB!

      Everyone who sees it remarks on this floor and how gorgeous it is. Am glad we waited so long and the current products have finally caught up to quality. We did a ton of research beforehand and Mannington nailed on on all fronts, handsdown. We recommend this flooring all the time.

      1. Hi Patti, How is your flooring holding up? I’m about to put in an expensive order for Mannington restoration Parchment planks and now I’m semi-terrified after reading the negative experiences. I’d so appreciate hearing how your floor is holding up…

    22. Barbara Reynolds

      My new Mannington vinyl plank flooring is extremely disappointing! I cannot get it to look clean! There is a haze on the floor that won’t go away no matter how I clean it–and I have tried many things! Don’t buy it!

        1. Same issue! Difficult to clean. Spills leave a “shadow”. I grew up with hardwood floors, and I am soooo disappointed with this flooring. Wish I had my $8,000 back! I am using the recommended products, but to get the “shadows” up, it is on-your-knees scrubbing.

    23. Shorty after install floor kept having pieces all over coming apart and leaving gaps. Had to have them tapped and walked back together. After this went on repeatedly for a year, contacted manufacturer. They had me mail in pieces of the floor. They then contacted me and said floor is performing per warranty. That per warranty, product can expand and contract up to 3/8 inches in 9 degrees temperature change and having a table or chairs on floor may cause it to come apart.

      So, they basically acknowledged their product is garbage and they covered that in the warranty language. They never sent product back and now I have to get a new floor, but not a Mannington product! They do not stand behind their product.

      1. ABSOLUTELY AGREE Steve … AVOID Mannington LVP flooring products, they are junk!!!
        Two years ago put in Adura max vinyl plank flooring in kitchen, dinette, dining room and guest bath as recommended by Nebraska Furniture Mart. This was a HUGE mistake. You can’t walk on the floor in bare feet or in your socks as you will leave smudges all over the place. Surface dents and scratches easily and is a daily maintenance nightmare. Plank to plank seams are crowning and the laminations are separating. It is the most labor intensive flooring in forty years of owning our home to keep looking good. BUYER BEWARE!

        1. We bought ours as a recommendation of Nebraska Furniture Mart also and we hate it! Smudges, dents and scratches everywhere. We are clean freaks and this floor just drives us nuts!

      What drew me to this product were the samples showing the planks were void of knots. I personally hate knots in flooring. As it turned out the Sundance saddle is mainly knots. Couldn’t return them as they were special order. I installed 800 Square feet and the installation was easy. The concern I have is with how soft the 8mm plank is. It cuts hardly without any resistance using a utility knife. I doubt it will stand up to even dropping a plate on it.

      I used a piece of the plank to temporarily support our small piano on. I was shocked to see the wheel had indented into the plank a good 1/8″. I, of course, will be using good quality floor protectors but the point is, it dents very easily. I have used other, much less expensive, vinyl plank flooring which held up better in this regard. I would not use this product again. I think Mannington is really behind the times.

    25. Need advice on accent/area rug that is compatible with Mannington AduraMax Apex LVP. We are seniors and don’t want to slip on loose rugs. Thanks!

    26. Floor is scratching like crazy and it’s only 1 month old. Already having planks replaced. Also I can’t get it to look clean. Streaks really easy. Dirt and hair shows really easy. Not happy so far and paid $9000 for my house.

        1. Adura Max, and I’m so unhappy with them. I have so many scratches and dents. They are slick and they smudge like stainless steel.

            See my reply to Catherine. I absolutely can’t keep this floor. I want to post a picture. Maybe someone can tell me what can be done.

        2. I also bought Adura Max Meridian Stucco. The day it was partially installed I asked the installer if there was a film to remove. Or if the planks were damaged. They looked severely abrasive which gave a dirty, etchy, scratched appearance. Mannington told me to wash with non sudsy ammonia. Nothing cleaned this floor. It looked dirty and we were seldom even using the rooms in which it was installed due to home renovations.

          We liked the style and colors of the planks, but could not live with the dirty, impossible to clean texture. In no way did the sample have the same rough, overly textured feature. Our stockings would catch on the floor. I would find another floor choice if I were you. It will now be a pain to replace the three month old floor just as our project is finally coming to an end. To their credit, Mannington is covering the replacement completely.

            We have had Adura Max Meridian LVT for a month. It appears dirty (like wet footprints) but we have been told it is texture and there’s nothing wrong with the tile. Using the mop and cleaner supplied with the floor, the mop head gets caught on the texture. Why did Mannington decide to replace your flooring? The store (have bought carpet and flooring from them for years) says if we want the floor replaced they’ll do near cost but labor will be usual price. Right now, I just want to be rid of the floor. I wish this comment page would allow me to post a picture.

    27. Why am I getting dust when we walk on the floor and enter another room with stocking feet? I am always dust mopping my floor but the dust keeps coming back. Thank you.

      1. Can you post pics of the dust? I’m curious if it’s house dust in general, or dust coming “off” the flooring material themselves.

    28. Extremely disappointed Mannington discontinued the distinctive plank!! Gorgeous floor. Looks exactly like real wood. Seriously disappointed…..

      1. We just decided on a Distinctive plank for our replacement and we’re going to arrange to order. Are they completely off the market? Do you have a source for that bit of information?

      2. I had adura max dockside seashell installed in a beach vacation condo. Professional installation, no problems whatsoever. We just sold the condo and bought a new one.. just looking at different options. I would not hesitate to buy again, I did have a cortec floor in the remodel before this last one and it was horrible to clean and keep clean.

      3. Do you happen to have any left over Mannington Adura LockSolid ALS612 Heritage Timber vinyl flooring? We are searching all over the world for two boxes to finish our downstairs. They’ve discontinued this and now it is only offered in Max and MaxApex, and we’re trying to prevent pulling it all up and starting over, considering it’s only a few years old. Any help is appreciated!
