Raised Floor Carpet Tiles, Waterproof Base Modular Carpet Tile
When selecting our CarpetFlex Floor Tile, receive the unique flexibility and durability of modular carpet tiles. These are available in two popular colors, and they represent an easy option for home installations.
With these floor carpet tiles, gain warmth and attractiveness in areas where it wasn’t possible in the past. Our floor carpet tiles are a very popular choice for covering basement floors, where a traditional carpeted material is not desired because of potential moisture seepage problems.
Raised Floor Carpet Tiles
These are ideal for basements, for family rooms, and for light duty office space. End up with a unique area that features sturdy construction with airflow beneath the waterproof base, which prevents potential dampness from reaching the carpeted fibers. This is an amazing design that can solve a lot of problems in damp basements.
With traditional carpeting, which has a foam base, any dampness on the subfloor will soak into the foam layer. And with no airflow underneath, the dampness will persist. From there, it could result in a mildew smell in the foam, it possibly will encourage the growth of mold, or it could seep into the upper layer, creating a damp spot and visible staining.
However, with our waterproof modular carpet tiles, the seepage never reaches the carpeting. The bottom makes use of plastic pegs that raise the surface a fraction of an inch upward, allowing some airflow for natural drying.
Additionally, these pegs are thick and strong enough to support the weight of people walking on them and of furniture sitting on them. The plastics will not absorb moisture.
As an additional benefit of using this model, the plastics will not transmit any cold temperatures through them. If walking on the floor carpet tiles in bare feet or lying on them, there’s insulation from cold subfloors.
Because they have a bit of height to them at 1/2 inch of thickness, many customers will choose to order our finishing edge pieces that provide a ramp, which should reduce the possibility of tripping over the edges.
Maintenance is an easy process. Vacuum them as with traditional layouts. Understand that the top surfaces will slightly absorb liquids. However, the bottom layers will not absorb water.
Floor Carpet Tiles Colors and Textures
These are available in either a charcoal or a tan color. Both colors have some texture to them, so other slight shade variations are visible. These are not a solid color throughout.
Additionally, variations in shades sometimes occur. This is common with all carpets, because dye lots vary among different batch production runs. Therefore, we recommend laying them out first without connecting them together. Then look at them from a distance. For obvious variations between side-by-side parts, move them for a better aesthetic fit.
These options will be shipped with both vertical and horizontal textures. Half of the order will have vertical orientations, and half will have horizontal orientations. By alternating the pattern, creating a pleasing appearance is simple.
For a fun checkerboard pattern, order both tan and charcoal, alternating them for a pattern. Or try creating an island with the middle consisting of one color, and then use the other for the island border. For someone operating a daycare or preschool facility, for example, this can be a great way to create separate areas for a reading area and for a general free play area.
Understand that they are not reversible. The products consist of sections of carpets attached to an underside base of firm plastic. The total thickness is 1/2 inch.
If trying to decide where to put them, consider the following tips for help.
Calculating coverages: Calculating the coverage space takes very little time. Each measures 12 by 12 inches, covering 1 sq. ft.
Expansion in sunlight: Please note that this flex tile will expand and contract slightly with exposure to sun. We do not recommend installing them atop a carpeted surface. These are not made as outdoor carpet tiles or for three season rooms with outdoor carpet squares.
Installation prep: Prior to installation, we suggest placing them in the same spot where they'll be installed. This will allow them to acclimate to the temperature and humidity. Give them at least 24 hours to adjust to the environmental conditions, and allow up to 48 hours if they are coming from a cold environment.
Movable: To remove CarpetFlex to use the subfloor for another reason, quickly disassemble them, stack them in storage, and then reassemble them back in the room later. Keep in mind that they are designed for permanent or semi-permanent installations and should not be assembled and disassembled repeatedly.
Single person installation: When installing them, one person can easily handle the work alone if needed, as they weigh only 1 pound apiece.
Expansion spaces: Leave a slight gap between the edges and permanent items, like a wall. The length of the room and the average temperature of the room determine the size of the gap. Consult our customer service team for more information.
Working with stationary objects: Don't put heavy objects on top of them, as this could damage them. Instead, cut them to fit with a utility knife and a straight edge to go around the objects. As a basic rule, if the heavy object will remain stationary, such as a washing machine, fit them around it. If it may move, such as a couch, set it on top of the flooring.
Flex Tile Flooring
Although our flex flooring is not recommended for use in locations with high foot traffic, the peg design is tough and will stand up to moderate weight being placed on it. The plastics are tough enough to stand up to general roughhousing, as potentially happens when children are playing.
Feel comfortable placing furniture atop the modular carpet tiles and don’t worry about cracking a peg. The furniture’s legs will cause indentations over time, so consider moving them regularly to limit the indentations.
Consider using plastic coasters under the feet of furniture or pool tables to minimize the indentations and to spread out the weight of the object slightly.
We would not recommend placing a bulky object that will stay in place over them, such as a large cabinet. Instead, cutting them for fitting around is the better choice.
Add new sections whenever required. Say the original layout included cutting to match the edges of a large entertainment center. Later, after switching to a smaller TV cabinet, the original subfloors may be visible. Disassemble the nearby cut segments and replace them with new full ones.

FAQ Modular Carpet Tiles Q&A
What are modular carpet tiles?
These consists of small pieces that are combined to be laid out in rooms. Each piece resembles a square, and they just need to be lined up side by side. The modular carpet tiles design may involve self stick carpet tiles, adhesives, or a locking system that holds the square in place. There are endless configurations available to provide specific coverings for any sized space. Modular carpet tiles offer easier transportation options than full rolls too.
Do you need padded carpet tiles?
The type of modular carpet tile product we offer has a pad already attached to the back, which means no additional padding is required. With standard carpets rolls, a separate roll of padded material should be laid down first. Modular carpet squares are made to go on directly with no padding layer.
How to install modular carpet tiles with no mess?
With our interlocking carpet tiles, each one will snap together. The tabs and loops are hidden on the underside, so nobody sees them once the job is finished. This DIY project requires no previous experience. This non-glue style is not suitable for laying as commercial carpet squares in busy traffic areas, however. A peel and stick carpet tile is another option to avoid a messy layout.
Are residential carpet tiles cheaper than carpet rolls?
As a DIY job, these carpet floor tiles are offered at a significantly good price point. Save on costs for labor, delivery, and cushioned pads. Ours will yield a much better value than modular carpet tiles offer. Ours will last much longer than clearance carpet tiles too, providing impressive value. As an added value of our interlocking carpet squares, if a significant stain appears, pop out the damaged sections and replace them. Understand, though, that they are not going to give you the durability of commercial carpet tiles.
Can you lay modular carpet tiles without adhesive?
Yes, depending on the model. Ours have a hidden interlocked edge that allow for assembling and disassembling as needed with no glues. Additionally, peel and stick carpet tiles create a minimal mess. Self adhesive carpet tiles have a protective film backing that will be removed just before laying them in place. Others require a separate type of glue, which can complicate the layout and which can create a big mess.
I would highly recommend this flooring to anyone that is thinking about a basement area. It was easy to install and did all the work myself. I have a finished basement with 2 bedrooms, full bathroom, TV room and a walk in closet. My prior floor was a subfloor with wall to wall carpeting but was destroyed by the town back flushing the sewer line into my bathroom. So I wanted to but down an easy but durable flooring along with something that I would be able to pull up if anything happened again. It just seemed like this was the perfected match!

We picked the CarpetFlex tiles to be able to lock them to our previous Greatmats tiles. They worked great with a smooth flow between the hot tub room and the laundry/hallway area. I used my box saw freehand to cut the carpetflex tiles where needed. No problem. The family loves the tiles.

The floor is great. We needed a solution to cover a hole in our floor. This has been amazing.
Angie in customer service was great. Called a number of times because of a concern about the street we lived on. she made sure the delivery trucker was aware and the delivery went off without a hitch. The products look good but havent have time to install them as of yet.
I ordered a second shipment a year after my first and had the same great customer service and product delivery. I could not be more satisfied with the whole process and tiles. I may just keep ordering as my project grows. Must thanks everyone for such a fine experience.

I received my orders in record time, with 3 days. Great product and durable. Looking to enjoy this product in the near future.
They really look nice. Easy to work with. Wish I would have put them in basement years ago. Thanks
Love these carpet tiles.Very easy to install and I didn't have to take out all the furniture. Also they look very nice.

Carpet Flex arrived quickly. The end result turned out to be better than expected. It installed with ease and once the basement was completed everything looked really high end. The only drawback is the price, but I would not have it any other way.
Did my basement with carpet flex and tile flex. I like the carpet flex more then the tile, easy to install, I used a fine cutting tool to cut tiles. That was easier then using snips. The tan carpet tiles looked more gray then tan, but we are still happy with the results.
these tiles were easy to install, look great, easy to vacuum. they are comfortable to walk on. not too bad price for the value of the carpet.
I have always had a problem with a little water in the basement. This product seemed like the perfect solution, so if a little water came in there would be no damage to the carpet. Bought a sample to see how it would look. Liked it, so went ahead and ordered enought to do my basement. It looks fabulous. Love it. Great product.
Couple of comments from putting it down. The squares lock together. I found the best way to engage the locks was to use a rubber mallet to connect them. Also, these are difficult to cut, but they should be given how they are made. I used a heavy duty pair of mental cutting snips. Also, got the trim pieces for the door openings -- glad I did, they look fabulous.
Overall, slightly expense product, but worth it. Looks great. Would highly recommend it.
Also, I got the 3 x 8 rubber mat to put under my treadmil. Also, a well made product.
Great product. The tiles are expensive, and a challenge to cut and fit - but they are a fantastic solution to flooring a basement - particularly if there is a chance your floor could get wet.
Effiecient delivery, nice product

I could not be happier with this product or the customer service I received from this company.
Great product! Looks great. I put down 300 sq ft of carpet and tile in about 5 hours single-handed!
From ordering with your truly professional customer service staff through quick delivery to the easy installation, I could not be happier with my decision to purchase this terrific product from your company.
I have already recommended Great Mats to two people.
I also plan on ordering more in the very near future.
Thank you so very much for being here.
We recently had the opportunity to install Greatmats carpet flex tiles in our basement. At first I wasn't sure they would work. We ordered a sample and decided to go ahead and purchase enough to do parts of the basement. After installation,my wife and I loved the way they looked in our basement.They were the perfect solution. The whole experience, from the ordering , to receiving,to installing was flawless. The ladies that I talked to during ordering were great and had excellent phone manners. A pleasure to deal with you. Thanks again for a great product and excellent service.
