Allen Roth Laminate Review, From Lowes

This Allen Roth laminate review is based on me installing it in a park model mobile home. This laminate flooring is sold at Lowes. I noticed it has the Swiftlock name on the label. I think its made by Armstrong.

As of the first week of May 2015, I was told by Lowe's that Allen + Roth laminate is made in the USA. As I understand, the manufacturing of laminate flooring in the USA is better controlled as far as formaldehyde is concerned.

It is a 10mm with an attached padding. It has a AC4 wear rating, which is good. AC5 is the best. It carries a limited lifetime warranty. This laminate has flush edges on all four sides. The color I installed here is Warmed Walnut.

I checked the price online at Lowes, They have it priced at 1.99, as of August of 2013. That's not a bad price for this product. Having the attached pad on the back saves a little money too.

Allen & Roth laminate flooring being installed. 10Mm from Lowes


Installing it in a small mobile home takes longer as there are a lot of extra ins and outs as some would say.

Here I started in the bedroom at the rear of the mobile home and continue all the way to the front. 

The bedroom door happened to be closed when I took this photo.

Here is the kitchen where I installed the laminate. They can be compact in these park models.

This Allen Roth laminate was easy to install as far as connecting the planks together. I was able to tap the planks together laying flat next to each other. The joints were smooth and flush, which is good to see on a square edge laminate. I have installed a lot of other square edged laminates that would peak up at the joints.

I started the installation in the rear of the home in the bedroom and continued out into the hallway, all the way out to the living room. I installed in front of the refrigerator and then rolled the frig out onto the laminate and installed the laminate behind it.
