Burke vinyl plank is a rather specilized product, that I don't think many of our members have used. It does not have broad nationwide distribution so it is doubtfull if you will get much feedback. It is often marketed to designers and decorators.

Sorry bout that Moderators, back in the penalty box for me again LOL! The beauty about LVT tile and plank is mixing and matching different products some people never knew or seen the options that are available with LVT. Greg off to work now.

Guess I had to flex my own topic splitting/post moving muscles. I moved several posts from this topic because they were off-topic and could cause confusion or frustration. You'll find them here:

Thank you for your input and follow up! Much appreciated. The fellow offering it to us has not ever installed it before. He has installed other vinyl plank, just not Burke as it is a new offering for him. We like the looks and the price of it! Any further tips will be appreciated. We are on a slab in Sunny Oceanside CA...don't know whether that tips you off to moisture issues.

Thanks much!

***************************
I'm sure I've installed at least a dozen brands of vinyl planks. From an installer's perspective I can't see much difference. Most of the material I've handled I HAVE and DO go back to those sites years later to do more work and it seems that all the products hold up very well to commercial traffic if installed over a well prepared slab. So it's hard for me to even imagine a home owner being disappointed in the durability of the standard "luxury" vinyl tiles/planks

Moisture is very likely going to be an issue near the ocean. When you factor in the cost of a proper moisture barrier you're likely going to be in the price range of some very nice ceramic, maybe even natural stone.

Those may be better choices.

In the last year or so I have put quite a bit of LVT in residential settings...I can't imagine that you could ever wear that stuff out inside of a home.
