The tiles were everything I had hoped for and more. The quality is top notch, and instalation was a breeze.
We completed our basement workout room floor last week. The hard part was moving all of our stuff, but the floor was easy to install and really looks great. Very Professional. We actually installed the slate pattern tiles on 1/3 of the room the week before. That is an area that I do Zumba Fitness on. The slate has enough slide ability to be easy on the knees for dancing. That floor was also very easy and fun to install. Then the next week we installed the rubber floor on the rest of the workout room. We now have a great gym. I highly recommend the products that we used and the service was wonderful. I was happy to get the samples so quickly, that made my decision on color very simple. Great products, great results!!!
Thank you, RubberFlooring.

This flooring is awesome! I installed it downstairs in our home gym. The interlocking parts go together perfectly so that they almost become invisible. It's easy to cut with a sharp utility knife - just make sure you have something underneath (like a scrap piece of wood or a scrap piece of this rubber flooring) for when the knife goes through. I found it easiest to do the first cut with a straight edge. Then take away the straight edge, bend one side of the tile down to expose the cut line, and then make multiple passes with the knife. After each pass with the knife, the cut opening will get bigger and bigger, making it easier and easier to cut.
The interlocking tiles installed cleanly and are working well for moderately heavy gym equipment. As a novice I thought the 36" tiles covered 36"Instead they cover somewhat less due to interlocking overlap. My five across tiles did NOT cover 15 feet. It was about 4 inches short. Rubber Flooring Inc was helpful in shipping me a roll of same rubber type at reduced shipping cost to help me fill the gap - which I have done.
Aside form my novice error - great experience!
The product is excellent and easy to install. My only comment to anyone who orders is to measure your room twice and consult with Rubber Flooring to make sure you have the correct number of tiles. I measured my floor and estimated the number of tiles needed which was 42. I called to place my order and the representative told me I only needed 32. I questioned her three times and she said we do this everyday and I know you need 32. I agreed because they are the experts. That said when it arrived and I installed I was short 10 tiles. I called and said I told you so! They apologized for the error and said they would send me 10 more tiles and they would take 5% off for their error. I asked for free shipping and they said no as I would have paid for the additional weight if the 10 tiles were on the first order. I did not agree with their analogy and was disappointed they only gave me 5% off for their mistake and inconvenience.I had to wait another 5 days to get the tiles to complete the room and move our equipment back in.
Would I recommend,yes - great product, easy to install. Just check and double check room size against tiles ordered.
The room is 17 by 17 feet, and we are in the process of adding some mirrors and more equipment.
Great product and process. From the Website, to the transportation delivery, to the install. The seams disappear and the edges are easy to try and tuck under the finished base board.
We have received many compliments and numerous requests for the website.
Thanks for making a great product.

The product arrived as scheduled. Was easy to install. We did it in a couple of hours. Our home gym looks like a commercial gym. Word of caution, follow installation instructions and definately leave a gap between perimeter tiles and wall to all for tiles to adjust during installation since no walls are plumb. This will give you some play. Although I was concerned about the odor other reviews mentioned, it was not as bad as I anticipated. We have a completely open floor plan spanning three floors. There is an odor, but it as not overwhelming. The floor has been in about two weeks and every day it is less and less. Once we are able to open windows and continue to air out the area, I am confident it will completely disappear.
Totally worth the money. Would not hesitate to use the product again.
I installed these rubber tiles in my basement for a gym floor and it turned out great. Very easy to work with and it looks seamless. TIP: I used a drywall t-square from home depot as my edge to make my cuts with a regular box cutter with a new blade.
Great and attractive product, great service over the phone. The pre-cut straight edges are worth a fortune in your labor time -- cutting these is no fun, even with a power tool, like one of those vibrating small hand saws. Only minor complaint is the smell -- never overpowering, even from day one, but it has taken a month to get rid of the traces of it. The edging that I bought with it made it look really professional, and provide a safe transition at the edges.
Love this product. The tiles are heavy enough that I didn't need any carpet tape or adhesive during install and the don't move. I had to make several cuts with one of them very intricate. With a sharp blade and some effort the results were flawless.
They went down easy and look great

We are really happy that we decided to use these rubber tiles for our new work out room. Shipping was quick, installation was very easy. Good quality product, nice heavy stock. We'd recommend it.
We used the 3x3 tiles to install flooring over our existing hardwood floors to convert a study into a small home gym. We ended up getting the grey speckled pattern. Great color, keeps the room a bit lighter. Easy install by myself. Had to cut several of the tiles, used fresh sharp exacto knife and worked very easily. Looks very professional with minimal effort. Very happy.
Product is excellent, and was incredibly easy to install.
I'll definitely be purchasing more products from Rubber Flooring, Inc.
Great product, goes together easy. However, only small gripe is that the "shade" of black is a tad different between the different pieces -- corners vs edges vs middle pieces. Therefore, for complete uniformity, I would suggest buying all center pieces and just cutting the edges off when used on edge or corner.
The tiles fit together pretty nicely and if you have to cut to fit, using a box cutter/drywall knife works pretty easily.
I am very pleased with this flooring. It was shipped fast (ordered on a Thursday from PA and received Tuesday). I was a little concerned at first about what the quality would really be like since I never asked for a sample - I just took a chance. It was easier to cut than I thought it would be for being so thick. Just a couple passes with a utility knife along a straight edge and it's cut. Very easy and fast to install - I finished a 14x14 area in less than two hours and that included fine cuts into doorways. I read some reviews about some complaints about the strong smell of rubber. I expected rubber flooring to smell like rubber flooring so no complaint here. Besides, it is not a foul odor or anything like that - just a mild smell of rubber. Doesn't bother me a bit. I am completely satisfied with every aspect of this order, from the shipping to the quality to the ease of installation! Must be a good company with great people!
Better then Rolled rubber, tight joints and well made.
Quick ship, easy install, looks great, heavy duty!
