Customer Reviews for: Max Tile Raised Floor Tile
Perfect flooring for my daughters dance needs. Added subfloor to use over carpet. 5x10 gives sufficient room for turns and leaps. Works well for tap too. Highly suggest subfloor with carpet. Fast shipping and excellent customer service.
I bought this floor after watching a video of someone tap dancing on it. Just the product I was looking for. I am an Irish dancer and wanted it for hard shoe. I bought 54 tiles (6ft * 9ft). The floor looked beautiful, the light wood color was enhanced by the black edges. Excited, I stepped onto the floor and found it very slippery. I duck tapped my shoes (known trick for slippery floors) and started again. When I found myself lying on the floor after a fall, I wasn't sure which hurt the most, my body or my ego. Swallowing my pride, I decided to call great mats to find out if I could apply a product on the floor, convinced that the dancer that demonstrated the product most have used something. Being told there was no such product, I had no alternative than to return the tiles. My beautiful looking floor had to go, I needed a surface I could dance on. Two employees at Greatmats, Joanne Schmidt and Tina Hoverman worked with me, arranging for the product to be returned and recommending another product, more suitable for my purpose. I am very grateful to these individuals and I am looking forward to many hours dancing on my new floor. I am writing this for one reason only. I had such a great experience with the employees at Greatmats I feel that someone at Greatmats should re-evalue the Max Tile Modular floor for dancing with hard shoe. Had I not seen the video I would never have considered buying it. I can't submit the review without rating it. The rating is meaningless.
My daughter loves her new floor! We love that we can add more pieces at a later date if we want to make it larger. Customer service was excellent and it came so quick. It was a great Christmas present for a dancer!!!
FROM MY FIRST CONTACT WITH THE WEBSITE TO TALKING TO RYAN NOLL TO DELIVERY TO INSTALLATION MY EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN GREAT. PACKAGING WAS EASY TO HANDLE, NO DAMAGE, TILES WERE EASY TO CUT AND INSTALL, AND IT WENT MUCH FASTER THAN MY CONTRACTOR (CLOVERNINE GB, W HARTFORD, CT-JOHN POWERS) THOUGHT IT WOULD. FLOOR LOOKS EVEN BETTER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD. EVERYONE WHO SEES IT IS IMPRESSED. I AM EXPECTING LONG LIFE AND GREAT PERFORMANCE FROM THESE TILES. I EMAILED PICS TO RYAN ALREADY - THESE MAY BE THE SAME

Floor - daughter loves. Some of the attachments to have broken hoops ( however I able to use) 4 of the mats were slightly broken( hoops) must have broken off during shipment. Otherwise - no issues ( getting ) a ton of action from daughter

Works great. We had to put a piece of plywood underneath since it sits on carpet, there is too much flex if you don't have a solid surface underneath (not a product flaw, just a fact). When we set it up on a solid surface, it's great.

Having used this product before I felt quite comfortable using it again. It is great.
We wanted a floor product in our basement that would withstand dampness and provide some level of insulation from the cold concrete. The MaxTile product was easy to install, feels great on bare feet and has completely eliminated the musty smell we had with a carpeted basement. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone with a finished basement and modest DIY skills.
We installed the tiles in our basement. One hint for the install - you can save a couple hundred dollars if you start on one wall with a partial tile and then work across the room. You can use the remainder of the first row of partial tiles for the last row. This saves a ton of scrap - the consequence is you have to make a few extra cuts. You will have to start by installing one row from wall to wall in order to know how wide the first row needs to be.

Arrived safe and well packaged.Easy to assemble and all pieces fit perfectly.Floor was installed on top of medium thickness carpet/pad and only problem is where the sub-floor is not level and one of the tiles has to be re-snapped occasionally.. Myself and dance partner are quite impressed--Thanks for offering a quality product..bill

After reviewing multiple websites for quality and price, Greatmats was the perfect choice. I ordered an 8x8 area for my daughter to practice her turns for dance. It works perfect!!! She put it together in our garage and will move it to basement this winter. If you want something for your dancer this is perfect!!! Her dancer friends had mentioned some other dance floor company that is outrageously prices d for the same thing!! We couldn't be more pleased with this floor!!!
My hard to please wife says this was the best decision we have made for the house. I t looks totally awesome and it was easy to install compared to other floors. We had carpet and laminent in the basement before the flood. Now we will not have to replace this if it ever happens again. My insurance liked that idea also.
Here is my new MAX Tile floor. I used it for my daycare business that is run out of my basement. We got hit with hurricane Irene about two weeks after installation and all we did was pop them up let the under floor dry out and simple pop them back in. The best part is how easily they clean which is important in a daycare. The kids like it because the cars go real fast on it and it makes a great floor for dancing as well. I saved and waited a long time to get this floor and I have not regretted it for one single moment. I HIGHLY recommend this!! Sincerely, Alice Everhart Alice's Family Daycare Pittsfield, MA
We chose the portable flooring primarily as a carpet protector for the new carpet we just put in our sanctuary. We needed something that would support a baby grand piano and the bell choir equipment and allow them to be moved around without damaging the backing on the carpet. After we decided to order the flooring, our musicians informed us that the sound quality of the instruments would be enhanced by being on a hard surface, thus an added benefit. The flooring is working extremely well and really compliments the new carpeting. Ron Walke Board Chair First Christian Church (DOC) Morehead, KY
I was having moisture problem on my basement,floor and this product was the solution that problem. Thank you Great Mats for such excellent product.
I ordered the Walnut tile and its nice looking for the price and does the job. I took the tiles to a restaurant for a quick family event since they didn't have a dance floor. It was a little difficult for me to put it together the first time which I was attempting at home before the family event, but after several tiles, I got the hang of it. It does require some hard stomping to put the tiles together. Taking them apart is much easier as you can sorta peel them apart in a downward motion. I'll definitely order more in the future to expand the size of my dance floor.
