Quick Step flooring products


Hello...this is my first post here.  Nice forum! 

We are in the process of updating the house for eventual sale and so we can downsize to a smaller place at retirement.  One of the projects includes new floors in the kitchen and baths to cover the original linoleum floors (20 years old).

My cousin told me about a product that he used in his kitchen called Quick-Step Uniclic flooring.  He used the Quadra series of ceramic, stone-like tiles that "click" together without grout or adhesives.  Here is a link to the web site:  http://us.quick-step.com/

He was very impressed but I am looking for other recommendations and experience.  Has anyone used this material?  From what I have found in my early investigations, it is a good product for kitchens but not for bathrooms where there is moisture.

Thanks  for any input!


edit...fixed link...poncho

My son used this exact product in his home,,  at first he only did the family room, but decided to do the entire house.

 He has 2 large dogs that are allowed in the house at times.. and with their long toenails clicking on the floors, it sounds like a train going through,, but doesn't cause any damage to the floors,
 
He did the complete house [ 2800 Sq ft] in 1 W/E ,, I helped him for most of one day, and he finished it up the following day.. he works construction, but not with flooring,,sothe instal is simple enough

Good luck with what ever you choose to use,,,

Oh Yeah,,, Welcome to the handy man show,, ump in and enjoy your self,, and please don't take anything said on here seriously,, we're a bunch of ding dongs,, and just enjoy being here,, Welcome ,   Bill,,,,,, AKA as Bad Rat, or a multiude of other under the breath thingsbiggrin

Thanks for the welcome guys....I am going to look into this product in a little more detail.  It looks very impressive on their slick web site!  I located a dealer that is fairly close to us so I will go see what kind of product samples he has to look at.  One thing I learned from the web site is that the product they sell with the beveled edges on it is NOT recommended for potential wet areas like bathrooms.  However, they say their product without the bevled edges is fine for bathrooms.  Most of their product lines are wood laminates that look really nice, however, we are not in the market for wood laminates.

Anybody ever use the Konecto tiles with the adhesive edges that you overlap?  Here is the link:
