These are beautiful and solid -- I was very happy to find that the inner vents are metal, rather than plastic like the ones I've purchased from box stores. A great buy!
Our basement carpet was ruined by water damage (Hurricane Sandy). I chose this carpet as a low cost alternative to professional wall to wall carpet and out of fear that if I spent significant money on wall to wall carpet, that another "water incident" would ruin that as well. Pros: The carpet is extremely easy to install, just pull the plastic off the back and apply carpet to the concrete. The tiles are also extremely easy to cut either with traditional scissors or a utility blade allowing for precise trimming and nearly flawless edging. The other major plus is the pricing of the carpet is very affordable and offers a significant savings over traditional wall to wall carpet. Cons: Even though overall I'm happy with the carpet, I need to be completely honest. As I said above, all tiles were not the same color with some boxes being a light red color while other boxes were a very dark red color. The color discrepancy is very noticable and the dark red colored tiles stick out like a sore thumb. For my basement...no big deal, but if this was carpet for my living room I'd be extremely disappointed. A few of the boxes only contained 11 of 12 tiles (one tile was just missing or miscounted or forgotten). Some of the tiles were not completely square (like a little indent on one of the four sides) which means you can see tiny slivers of concrete in between the tiles. Finally, about one in 30 tiles was missing glue on one of the four sides...not a huge deal as you can use those pieces for the walls and trimming necessary areas, but needed to be mentioned none the less. Ease of Installation: 10 of 10 Color Consistency: 5 of 10 Quality of Tiles (Color Aside): 9 of 10 Recommendation: This carpet is a nice idea for a basement if you are looking to save a little money (I saved approximately $300 on a 300 square foot room) and as long as the "color issues" do not bother you. If you need the carpet to be perfect...avoid this carpet and look for an alternative or wall to wall carpet. Final Grade: B+
This rug has a very low pile, is super soft on the top, and vinyl on the edges and bottom so as to prevent moisture from seeping into the flooring. I expected it to be plastic and wiry but it's far from that. I have this size coming in from the garage and the bigger one in the large entry way. Cats love laying on them and I love the feel under my bare feet. Could not be happier with the amount of debris they collect so as not to be tracked onto my new floor. I will absolutely purchase again and highly recommend!
