Customer Questions

Ask a Question
Can your tiles be used as waterproof flooring for wet-rooms or shower stalls. Do you have corners and right angles for going up a wall like in a shower stall?
Our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series tiles are water resistant, but are not the best flooring option for wet rooms and shower stalls. These tiles do feature a textured surface, but when wet can be slippery. We don't offer any corners or right angles for walls or shower stalls with these tiles.
Hello, can your tiles be installed over a low pile carpet? I want to use them in a room that is carpeted, as my art studio. I'd like to be able to roll a chair with wheels over them.
Our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series can be installed over a low pile carpet.
We have a sunroom that is not heated or cooled. It's over our previous deck and is 10-15 feet in the air. We were sold a laminate that is bubbling due to heat and cold. Will the slate flex garage tiles be ok in extreme heat and cold?
Helen Watson Aubuchon
Our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series tiles will expand and contract in extreme heat and cold. To help alleviate bubbling of your floor, we recommend leaving a 1/4" expansion gap around your floor which will allow your floor to expand and contract appropriately.
Can the Slate Flex Tiles be installed in a commercial type kitchen? Can they be glued if desired to the concrete floor?
Our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series tiles can be installed in a commercial type kitchen. You can glue these tiles if need be with a pressure sensitive glue, but that is not necessary.
Slate Flex Designer Tiles: What do chair and table legs (etc) do to this product. Do they indent it? -Thanks
These tiles are very durable and will be fine underneath table legs and chairs without worry of indentation.
Want to install in a smaller area of a large room over hard floors. Are there edges available for this product?
The only edging that we have available for our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series are our Rubber Floor Ramps. You would use the 4-6mm Ramp.
I'm interested in installing these tiles in my garage but concerned about melting snow/ice/salt penetrating through the seams and getting trapped in the winter. How well does the interlock seal against intrusion? Also, can they stand up to floor jacks and jackstands, etc? Thanks!
Snow melt, ice melt, and salt will not penetrate the interlock of our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series due to the hidden interlock system used. Jack can be used on these tiles, but the jack will leave an indention where it was used. In most cases, the indentation never recovers.
My floor is warped through the settling of the foundation. Will these tiles be able to handle a gradual curve in the subfloor?
Our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series tiles are made of flexible PVC plastic and are able to conform to slight imperfections in the subfloor. If the imperfections are too great, you may have issues with the tiles interlocking and thus would have to level out your subfloor.
Are there edge tiles to go along my garage doors and a door with no threshold?
Bryan Bergsteinsson
Our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series are beveled, but if you are looking for a reducer, we recommend using our Rubber Floor Ramps.
If I install in a basement, do I need to install a moisture barrier?
You will not need to install a moisture barrier with our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series. These tiles are non-porous and will not harbor any mold or mildew. If you do have a moisture issue, we do recommend sealing your concrete surface. If you don't, what you will see is some white material under the tile. This is not mold or mildew, but salts that are leaching out of your concrete.
Can this tile be used in a home gym.
It depends on what you will be doing on the floor. Please contact one of our sales reps to tell us how you will be using the room. We would like to make sure you get the proper flooring for your workout needs.
I have 4 small dogs that sometimes have "accidents". Does this flooring resist absorbing liquid and odors? What is the best way to clean liquid and stains?
Valerie Dundas
These tiles will not absorb liquids or odors. However, we do recommend immediate cleaning if this does happen. Periodic damp mopping of the tiles with a mild soap and water solution. Some common soaps often used are dish detergents and tide laundry detergent.
I asked this about another product - can I put a pool table on this flooring or will the weight be a problem? We have had to pull up the carpet in our basement due to water and I am looking for an alternative, but we have a pool table down there.
Our Slate Flex Tiles are durable enough to withstand the weight of a pool table on to of them. These tiles are constructed from flexible PVC plastic which is the same material used for piping in homes and business. These tiles were created for use in garages, but are stylish enough to be used throughout the home. The only issue you may run into is that the tiles may indent from the weight of the pool table. To combat this, we recommend using flooring sliders.
I want to add a little "padding" under these. I am installing over a wood subfloor. What underlayment should I use?
You can use a cork or foam underlayment with our Slate Flex Tiles.
Can you install over marble tile in a bathroom? Will tbe transitions work on to the carpet in hall In that situation? Can you install in a galley kitchen with hard wood at either end? How would the last tile be finished?
Lynn DiPietro
You can install our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series over marble or any other hard flat surface. The transition we offer for this product is a ramp, so it may not serve the purpose that one would be looking for. We do offer a wide range of transitions on our trims and molding page that would be more appropriate. You can install out tiles in any room in your home, so these tiles would work great as flooring in a galley kitchen. These tiles feature a unique hidden interlocking design, making the process of finishing the floor quite simple. Essentially, all you would need to do is just install the tile as needed and cut to fit. The finishing sides will have a slight beveled edge giving your floor a finished look.
Can I level the subfloor with mud like I would use for ceramic tile?
Monica Murphy
You can install our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series over dried mud. Since these tiles are interlocking, you won't need the mud to hold the flooring down.
Can these tiles be laid and connected in a subway design instead of square?
Regina Deininger
You can install our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series in an ashlar brick or staggered brick design. To do this, you will need to cut the tabs off the tiles. Next, you will need to glue the tiles in place with a pressure sensitive adhesive.
Can this be installed over OSB or does the subfloor need to be a smooth surface like sanded plywood or cement?
You can install our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series over OSB or any other hard, flat surfaces such as cement, plywood, asphalt and the like.
I want to put your slate flex tiles in a kitchen. I was thinking of using the sandstone color. Are these tiles prone to staining in a kitchen environment?
Our Slate Flex Tiles - Designer Series tiles are resistant to most household and vehicle chemicals. So they won't get stained by normal items found in a residential kitchen.
Are these tiles slippery? I was thinking of installing them in a mud room.
These tiles are great for a mud room.
Can these also be glued directly and can these be installed in a parking garage?
You can glue these tiles directly to the subfloor. One issue you may run into is that the glue may affect the interlocks on the tiles. What we would suggest is to cut the interlocks off the tile and install it like a normal tile floor over mortar. You can use these tiles in a parking garage. They were originally designed to be used in garages, but are more commonly used in the home or offices.
