During our time in business, we’ve received countless testimonials from happy customers. We’re pleased to share another testimonial, which highlights not only the Max Tile Raised Floor Tile but also the experience of working with Greatmats.

How Max Tile Raised Floor Tiles Transformed Multiple Rooms and a Hallway

Gary Watson and his wife, Robin, chose Greatmats’ Max Tile Raised Floor Tile for use in two rooms and a hallway in the lower level of their home. Watson commends the flooring for its durability. “After 10 years, the Greatmats that we put down look as good as new,” he says.

The couple were so pleased with the flooring that they chose Greatmats again when it was time to floor their utility room. “We just, in the last week, installed another 120 square feet of the white oak flooring into our utility room, which is also our laundry room,” says Watson. “It matches up perfectly.” He particularly appreciates the flooring tiles’ durability and the ease of installation.

While the floor tiles put in an excellent performance, Watson is also pleased with the experience he had when working with Greatmats. “[Greatmats has] friendly staff to work with you, including sending you samples to be sure that you’re getting exactly what you want,” he says. “We highly recommend Greatmats as a way to solve your flooring problems.”

About the Greatmats’ Max Raised Floor Tile

The Max Tile Raised Floor Tile is an ideal choice for the way that the Watsons used it. Since the tile is waterproof, it’s suitable for use in basements and other areas where moisture may be an issue. The tile’s raised base allows air and water to circulate underneath it, speeding drying and helping to prevent mold and mildew.

The tile’s overall durability is also ideal for long-term use. The tiles are strong enough to withstand repeated installations and removals, making them suitable for use in homes and also as trade show floors and portable dance floors. The commercial-grade vinyl surface helps to prevent wear and preserve the tile’s appearance.

The tile’s UV resistance also contributes to its long-lasting looks that Watson commented on. He noted that the tiles look “good as new” 10 years later and that UV protection helps to prevent color fading in areas where light travels in through windows and hits the flooring.

Watson also appreciated the tile’s ease of installation, which is made possible by its tab and loop connectors. Installing the tiles is as simple as connecting them together, and they can be removed equally easily. You can also cut the tiles to fit with a sharp utility knife, and they’re lightweight, so they’re easy to carry into the home and downstairs if necessary. All of these qualities make for an easy DIY-friendly installation that’s ideal for homeowners.

The tiles are also available in 10 color options, including an assortment of wood grain finishes. These finish options let homeowners achieve the look of genuine hardwood at a fraction of the cost. Warner ordered new flooring in another finish option, taking advantage of the multiple finishes available and bringing multiple eye-catching styles into his home.

Once the tiles are installed, they’re very easy to maintain. They can be cleaned with a damp mop, hot water, and common household floor cleaner.
