Is Recycled Rubber Flooring Expensive?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: June, 2021 - Modified: July, 2023

Recycled rubber flooring is not only eco-friendly, but it can be friendly on the wallet. With that being said, there are many varieties of recycled rubber flooring and you’ll find quite a range of prices depending on the thickness, manufacturing processes and more.

Expect to find rubber flooring options ranging from $1 to $20 per square foot - all of which have long life expediencies when used and cared for properly.

Another thing to keep in mind is shipping costs. Rubber is a heavy material, which generally results in higher shipping costs than lighter weight materials. You may find some smaller rolls or tiles available with free shipping. Most large rolls, mats and tiles require freight shipping, which can significantly impact the overall price.

There are recycled rubber flooring solutions that can be used in a variety of applications or settings, from a home or commercial gym, garage, playground, basement, and more. There are mat, tile, and roll rubber flooring solutions at Greatmats, with the following 6 being among the most affordable and popular:
