We lay miles and miles of commercial LVT and have never had issues. Now if the material is loose laid then of sure you set yourself up for complete failure. We have installed a lot at hospitals. They clean daily with wet mops, still no issues.
We had one large scale failure with a Konecto type floating LVT. The biggest part of being Incognito is I don't want to name names and point fingers. I suspect (and have seen) where some corporations are chasing down bad online reviews or comments to rebut them. I imagine they'd have a problem with a shop that they felt was badmouthing them--------deservedly so or not. There's REALLY no privacy or secrecy on the internet. If you think there is you're not being realistic. So I'll not mention the brand or specific product. To be honest I'm one of those guys who figures it's all the same crap anyway to the extent that they're all copycats of each other. I didn't do the install. I only saw a portion of the failed floor in a lunch room maybe 10'x15'. The bulk of the replacement I did was already demoed out when I got there. The issues were seams curling, distortions/tweaks from what I assume was poor storage and/or mishandling----but who knows. ..........so basically this was a conglomeration of all the nightmare stories I've read about on the internets about these floating floors that glue together with overlapping/underlapping tabs. It was just under 4K square feet. The factory offered full replacement but nothing for labor. Other than that the handful of jobs I've done went smooth but I haven't had a reason or opportunity to check 1-5 years down the line how they're holding up. I have no concerns about the surface layer as it's the same as the glue down products we've done by the tractor trailer load. So what I do need to learn more about is how it telegraphs my prep. I can assume it's better than glue down over slabs with movement like saw cuts/cold joints/trenches and such that ripple or crack VCT and at least show through LVT/LVP. But for me it's yet to be determined what level it needs to perform well over the long term. I've been prepping as if it were VCT figuring it's all going to mold down eventually, if not crack. I'm also not very confident in the adhesive bond system for commercial applications. The one larger job I did was in fact a market--------tons of refrigeration units to fit to and work around. It just doesn't seem like it'll be a good long term choice for that. If I could remember the name of the market I'd go scope it out next time I was in south Orange County. Not all the jobs are public places you can just wander back into.
