We recently purchased your Diamond Grid-Loc Tiles. We chose royal blue & beige for our Garage floor. It was very easy to put the tiles down, once we got the hang of it.. However John had to do some cutting when it came time to fit into the corners and places where a 12" square would not fit.
We received our tiles on Wednesday, May 6th, and finished up the job on Saturday May 8th. That included John putting a quarter round board along the baseboard we already had down.
We are so proud that we could do this project ourselves. We are not young people either --John is 84, and I am 79. SO needless to say, it was a little hard on our feet, legs, and backs. But we got the job done that we set out to do!!! We are proud of our Garage now and have shown i to several of our neighbors.. they liked it too!
We have extra tiles left, so we will use them if we need to replace any in the future.
I'm enclosing some pictures of our Garage floor- before & after the tiles were put down..
P.S. Wish we had known about your company 9 years ago.. we had painted the floor with Epoxy paint, but it hasn't held up like we thought it would.. oh well, live and learn I guess!!!
I ordered four colors of the product, laid out a pattern, and completed a 24 by 30 garage--all in a weekend. It was easy to lay out. I used a box cutter with a new blade to cut all the tiles. And, it looks great when I was done. Also, the product shipped very quickly and complete! Thanks.
Installing this floor in my garage added an extra room to the house...not only is the garage a great place for our cars it also was setup for a nice workshop and party room. The installation was simple and fun...the material is very durable but easy to work with.
Garage looks outstanding! Everything came perfectly. Installation was pretty easy. When cutting tile, first tried a box cutting blade but it was too arduous. The jigsaw worked great and cut my time exponentially. Stomping on the tile to join them worked most effectively. Having a rubber mallet handy proved beneficial for the edges. These tiles are durable but not soft. You will hear the flexing of the tiles when walking on them but since they'll be in the garage it's an easy trade-off. Would highly recommend. I've seen some waterproof tiles but they were at least twice the price and required a lot more prep and finish. Excellent customer service!
I had installed regular vinyl floor tiles over the concrete Garage floor about 20 years ago. They had become brittle and had holes from Motorcycle kickstands, generally shabby looking. Internet research for a suitable covering led me to www.rubberingflooring.com. After checking pricing for other methods of repair/replacement I decided to go with the Diamond Grid-Loc Tiles with an underlayment of 30# roofing felt, 423 square feet at a cost of about $35.00 at the local big box store. The underlay took most of the hollow echo out of the tile when walking across them, however one still hears the creaking of the tile but not objectively so, small trade off for the clean looks. My garage/workshop is 24' x 30' and I keep a 12' x 20' area without any covering so as to be able to use jacks to lift cars as needed, the manufacturer of the tiles states not to use jacks on the tile to prevent damage. This is consistent with the prior floor covering layout. I purchased edging for the separation of concrete and tile, really neatens things up, in addition to allowing a smooth transition from one flooring to the other. All cutting of tile was done using a band saw with a standard wood cutting blade, just went slow to avoid overheating tile. Installation went very easily using a leather mallet to join tiles together. No undue surprises with install. All in all I am very pleased with the outcome. I did order samples to evaluate construction of tiles, I then placed my order after utilizing the custom design feature on the web page which was a big help in determining colors and lay out. I received my order 10 days after placing order on a Saturday so actual order wasn't received until Monday, so rather good shipping times considering that it was very near Christmas. UPS delivered all 10 boxes into my garage so I only had to move them into place, a big labor savings. I had no reason to contact the company after placing my order as there were no problems with shipping and order was as I placed it. From the reviews I read I suspect if there were any problems the Company would be very supportive.
I have been looking for a permanent solution to eliminate the garage concrete floot chipping until I come across this garage rubber tiles. Installation is just a piece of cake. All I need is just a rubber hammer for interlocking the pieces and a jigsaw for fitting the tiles at the bottom of the staircase. It merely took me 3 hours to cover up the whole floor of a double garage.
I measured our garage by myself and ordered online the Diamond grid lock garage flooring as a surprise for my husband for his new 3 car garage. The person I worked with online to order the flooring was very kind and professional with me and...very patient. The day it arrived, my husband came home and I surprised him with a pallet of flooring, he couldn't believe it! Well...let's just say he was floored. He wanted to start installing it right away. He and our grandson installed all of the flooring in our 3 car garage, with cuts in 7 hours. It looks fantastic and he loves it!!
Easy, fast and relatively inexpensive way to transform a dusty garage into a car showroom!
I found the floor very easy to install it has improved my garage floor appearance i would highly recommend buying this product
We recently bought a new house and designed our interior flooring and we where looking to do the same for our garage, these tiles where the answer to get our custom look, and stand out from the standard epoxy look. They were extremely easy to install myself, and I thought it was worth the extra money compared to epoxy as epoxy took more time to install. The flooring looks great overall and we have been getting no stop compliments on the flooring.

We installed all black diamond grid loc tiles in our garage as my husband & myself both have black vehicles. We were having some salt caused tiny holes starting to appear in the floor. As our garage is completely finished & newly painted the cement just didn't look very nice. I was thinking of the rubber interlocking tiles but when I saw the grid loc tiles, I read the reviews & watched the installation video. I ordered tiles & entryway ramp. They came very quickly. We laid landscaping fabric down as underlayment & began the install. Took us about 5 hrs total, was easy & fun to do. Our floor looks amazing, makes the garage look bigger & like another room. We are very happy with the result!!! I would recommend renting a tile cutter, makes the install quicker & easier. We love our new garage so much, we are having a new driveway put in to go with the floor. Haha. We had planned a new driveway for a couple of years down the road but decided to have it done now. I highly recommend this flooring; easy to sweep & mop!
Easy to put down! Took two of us three hours to install on a 25' X 24' garage floor. Did the border trim (end pieces the next day which took about six hours as there were cutting requirements that required precision. It looks great and our cars thanked us for the luxury.. :-)) Am going to put it down in our pool house as well as our outside balcony that has to be painted every two years.
I hated my garage and I was buying a new car. I wanted it to have a nice home. Years ago, I had the floor painted with epoxy and it was a disaster. It didn't even look good new. It started to peel within a week and continued until I couldn't stand the sight of it anymore, 5 years later. I thought I would have to remove all of it before using the garage tiles, but I didn't. I only need to sweep and clean. The tiled hide what's underneath, so it could remain. Also, I was skeptical about the installation. I tried to hire a tiler and a handyman but no one wanted the job.
My garage is 300 ft/sq. The full size tiles went down quickly and easily. It only took 2-3 hours and we used a mallet. The next day we cut the irregular pieces. It was tough with a utility blade but simple with a jigsaw.
It looks great. Because the floor looks so good, I had to continue and redecorate the entire garage, and I'm glad I did. It's my favorite room in the house.
Installation was a snap. The Diamond Grid-Loc tiles seem indestructable. Several spills wiped right off. We changed our design and it was easy to remove and reinstall tiles in the center of the garage floor.
I absolutely love the garage floor tile (Diamond Grid-loc). It's reasonably easy to install, looks great, and is easy to clean.
Only two issues thus far (a month in) -- we have a gravel driveway, and if your tires bring in any of the rocks, they can pierce the tiles (I've had this happen only once, and I easily replaced the tile). My solution (whether it works long-term is yet to be seen) is to drive very slowly into the garage to make sure that no rapid direction or speed changes drive the rocks into the tire treads.
The other issue -- when driving out of the garage, be sure NOT to quickly brake when halfway off the tiles. This caused (again, only once) the tiles to pull apart from one another in rows. Again, this was quickly fixed (I just put them back together with my trusty rubber mallet), but now I slowly enter and leave the garage.
None of this changes my love for the product -- I just have new "garage driving rules"!!
I did the checkerboard pattern and couldn't be happier. I laid the tiles in just a few hours, including the trimming. Tiles trim Quick and easy using a table saw. Highly recommend laying the rubber matting underneath to eliminate chatter. Tiles snapped together quickly using a rubber mallet. I did screw up and start from back corner of garage which meant my front edge ended up not aligning with the front of the garage, oops. I had to pull the rows down to align with the front edge, and then trim new tiles for the back wall which wasted a few tiles. Don't make that mistake. You'll need the male or female attachments on the front edge if using the ramp pieces which I also recommend to give the floor a cleaner look and smooth transition to your driveway. Tiles are very durable and not at all deformed from even my SUV parked on them. Clean up easily with a wet rag. Only complaint is that the sales associate who helped me with the order suggested I needed 3 rolls of matting, and I only needed 1.5. Now I'm stuck with a $70 roll of rubber. The cost to send back was over $100. They should reimburse, even half the cost. It seems that should be an easy thing to know if you do it everyday. I obviously provided the correct dimensions because the tiles were spot on.
Before and After Garage
Extremely easy to install. Two seniors completed a two car garage in five hours. Am very happy with the product and so is my corvette.
I installed my flooring a couple weeks ago and couldn't be more happier with the results. It did take a while to break the tiles apart since they ship in 4's but it was worth it. I used 2 layers of synthetic weed barrier underneath the tiles to help with sound deadening and it worked like a charm. Now the real test is to see how the tiles hold up over time. If you're thinking of getting these don't hesitate; you won't have any regrets.
Installed 200 square feet it looks great. Tired of my Camaro sitting on a wet crappy floor when the humidity gets high. The materials are excellent quality. Used a small no blow plastic hammer saved my hands. Found it easier to make a whole row then tuck it under the installed row in knock it in place. Clean and tidy. I may do my other garage side with perf tiles since it is the side snow will be. Love it.
