I live in one of the boroughs of NYC. Our property is 80 x 100 so the back yard is not too large. We have a nice size shed and a 12' above ground pool, grill and nice outdoor furniture. The concrete was cracked and would be such a pain to replace. My husband had filled the cracks with a silicone and needless to say, it did not go with my decor.... ha ha... I would purchase a large outdoor carpet every summer to try and hide the cracks and finally decided to purchase these tiles. My husband was very concerned on how they would hold up with the winters in NY or the summers for that matter.
I have to say this has been the BEST purchase ever. When it snows, we have to shovel the back and three is no issue at all as a matter of fact, it is so easy to shovel. I just said the other day,, all the sidewalks in NY should have these it makes it so easy to shovel. The freezing cold winters to not crack the tiles at all. We had a basketball hoop in the back and my son would play ball on it,, bouncing the ball like crazy on them, jumping up and down to the hoop and they have stood up beautifully.
We have the tiles in the yard for at least 4 or 5 years now and they are as good as when we first bought them. We scrub them down a little when the warm weather comes and give a little shot with a power washer (on light). and they look brand new.
If you are hesitant to purchase these, dont be, not matter what weather they hold up beautifully.
I cannot say enough about how these interlocking tiles have filled the bill! We have a balcony with a view of the Hudson River. It was okay before, but the floor was concrete. Now that I have laid these tiles (forest green) it is a great pleasure to be out on the balcony! In less than an hour! We can now walk barefooted on our balcony, without discomfort. We eat our dinners out there in good weather. It feels like an extension of the apartment. Whenever we decide to relocate, I can unsnap this flooring and relocate it with us! I don't usually write reviews. but I just want to share with others the pleasure we have derived from this home improvement!
This is Coki, our cat, with her litter box behind her. The flooring traps all of the kitty litter so none of it gets past this room! Any cat owner can appreciate that!
I used this tile to creat a 25x30' sport court in our backyard for the kids. This is the cheapest tile available on the market per sf. It was a breeze to install and it looks great!
The flooring was better than expected and holds the hot tub off the concrete very well. Also it is high enough that I can drain the water without touching the bottom of the tub. Also is good on the feet barefoot and looks good. I installed 12 X 9 ' area in 15 mins complete, and that includes using a utility knife to cut the 12' edge.
I had a unique basement utility room floor problem. The concrete was never finished, so it's very rough and bumpy. The room has also flooded at least 4 times in 20 years, 2 water heater disasters, one washer hose rupture and one drain problem. And I didn't have much money to fix it. As a result, my options for floor coverings were exceedingly limited. This product solved all my problems, it's thick enough to smooth out the concrete, it's strong enough to support 2 freezers and washer without denting, and it's "vented" if we flood again. It was under $500 for a 12 x 14 room. It was very easy to install, once we figured out how, (some very minimal instructions would have been nice on how to snap them together as well as the best method to cut them,) and went down very quickly. It's not really barefoot friendly, but some throw rugs solve that problem. We were expecting something with some give to it, so the rigidity was a surprise, but probably better suited for the room. I would whole heartedly endorse this product, actually 4 of the 5 people who have seen it took the web address so they could order some for various applications. Oh, did I mention it was ordered on Thursday evening and delivered on Monday?
The tiles themselves are great. Tough and serviceable but did not match the ones I had laid down a while ago. Maybe my older ones are out of production. But if you're buying them for the first time, go for it. However, if you are adding on or replacing some older ones it wold be best to ask for a sample first.
I love it, I don't have to keep on paint my deck every other year. I recommended to anyone
very easy to install. It took me about 4 hours to complete. I wish they make an end piece for the angle cuts.
Before hurricane Irma, my previous decking was exposed to intense UV, wind, rain and chair legs pushing into them for over four years. The parts I recovered still have a lot of life left in them. They still lock together and show no signs of cracking. In fact I only found one storm damaged tile that had a small piece missing from the edge.
I decided to replace the entire deck vs just the missing parts in case of fading. What I found was the old tiles had no real color change when compared to the new ones. The corner/straight edging did show some fading, but were still usable.
I will use the old tiles for something else or spares. This product is definitely able to stand up to severe outdoor exposure.
Perfect for our showers in our bathhouses. Easy to install!
I bought these to put in my boat compartments and they work perfectly.
I had a problem with leaves clogging the zipper drain in my driveway. I placed these tiles over the drain and they have greatly solved the problem. My neighbor had recommended them.
Bought this for my deck. Live on the Oregon Coast and my deck gets slippery. This is great!
After hurricane Irma our down stairs laundry room was flooded with several feet of muddy water. After cleaning, painted the walls and installed new washer and dryer. Decided to add these Rugged Grip-Loc tiles and glad I did. The tiles look great, cut to size very easy and fit together nicely but most of all the price was right. Buy these you won't be disappointed!
Very easy setup and awesome product!
These tiles were easy to cut and assemble. Plus, they look great!
