    We had the LVT installed and grouted this week. It looks really good and feels great to wheel across. Supposed to be virtually indestructible , but after looking at the ugly 20 yr old sheet vinyl anything would look good. It cost $400 more to have it grouted but it looks so real with it and it was worth the extra cost!

    I put down a floating click/lock type. My powerchair tears the planks apart in both directions. I had thin screws added to the perimeter which prevents the planks from separating. Not the best solution but stopped the problem. Would never do floating with a wheelchair.

    We had ours glued down as the dealer didn't recommend the floating floor for that and other reasons.
