Hi, We would like to put the carpet tiles over small tiles that have a wide grouting between them that dips a little inbetween. So it is not an even surface. Would this cause issues with installation as well as the final product?
Our Ribbed Carpet Tiles can be installed over tile with wide grout lines. As long as the grout lines and the seam of the carpet do not occur in the same area, you will be fine. An underlay can be used over your tile flooring making your installation of your carpet tiles worry free.
We're putting these over a concrete slab with residue from linoleum tiles. What ind of padding would we need between the tiles and the floor. How would the padding stay affixed to the floor?
The best type of underlay under our carpet tiles is a rubber underlay. To affix this or any other underlay to your concrete slab, we recommend using double sided tape or free floating it.
Can this carpet tile be installed over an underlayment?
Our Ribbed Carpet Tiles can be installed over an underlayment. The only type of underlay we don't recommend under these tiles is carpet padding. This is due to the thickness and softness of carpet padding. It can cause the tiles to separate which can cause a tripping hazard.
I plan to lay these carpet tiles over a rustic wood floor. When I remove the tiles, will the adheasive easily clean off the wood flooring?
Ceslie Armstrong
The adhesive on our Ribbed Carpet Tiles is a releasable adhesive, but can leave a residue behind on the floor. To remove this residue you can use Goo Gone or WD-40 to help remove the residue. You then wipe up the area with a dry cloth. Repeat this method until the residue is gone.

I'm looking to install carpet tiles on 2 walls in my showroom to hang plaques with velcro so they can be easily put up and taken down when needed. The wall is a rough textured surface. What is the best way to hang the carpet tiles on our walls? What would you recommend to make sure the tiles adhere to the walls?
Trophy Shop
To put or Ribbed Carpet Tiles on the wall you will want to make sure the wall is clean of any dust and dirt. Next, you will want to place the tiles on the wall and take a roller and apply pressure to the tiles on the wall; This helps ensure the adhesive bonds to the wall. If the initial amount glue on the back of the tiles is insufficient for your application, we would recommend applying a spray on pressure sensitive adhesive to the wall and repeating the process of rolling the tiles to the wall.
