Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuildingLikeCrazy once you catch on installing is fine
Once I got the "method" for install it went easily. Till then - can be frustrating. I'd start at the corner where two clips go in at once sliding in tight and pressing to the outside. Position yourself behind the corner so you are pressing down and out at the same time. Slide in and forward till it snaps in place. 95% of the time the other two fell into place without much hassle. Till you get the hang of it though - because the clips are tight based on size - you may have a choice word or two. Every tile worked with every clip. In no instance did a clip not work because of tile size. We used these to cap a "waterproof flat roof". Did a flat roof, then covered it with liner for a water feature, then these on top. Very thick, great feel, great protection for our membrane. I'll let you know in a year or so how this solution worked out. :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chilly This product is the perfect size & it makes me feel good that it is from recycled tires.
This product is a great size @ 18" square. It has the look of old cobblestone & can easily be cut down if needed.
I am glad to see that old tires are being put to good use & it makes me feel good that I can "buy green".
They fill in an old dirt pathway between the house & shed that can get pretty muddy at certain times of the year & now I can walk through there barefoot if I want & not get dirty!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by poppo not sure this is worth the expense - looks okay if you follw my suggestions below.
THE SIZE OF THESE TILES CAN VARY AS MUCH AS 1/4 INCH OR MORE ---Be sure that if you purchase a large amount that they come from the same lot - if not the size difference make it difficult to fit them together. Also install the tiles on a cool day because they expand in the hot sun by about an 1/8th inch -- so when they cool down they shrink back and leave as much as an inch in the row. If you place a sturdy edge all around the tiled area it will prevent the growth of the row and the tiles will fit in tighter.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BrandiKan2 Paver BeWare!
I would never recommend this product in a million years. They claim 18 x18 and they are far from that. Many of the pavers were 17 1/2", some even less. Several were over the said 18". The various sizes makes it impossible to use their WORTHLESS clips. Tried to work the company on the various sizes of the tiles, of which I bought over 170. They played e-mail tag with me for awhile, then eventually just blew me off. I was very disappointed. Probably great for a small walkway, but horrendous for larger patio areas.

These tiles are terrible. We tried to install them on a roof deck balcony. Tried is the optimal word. After building our dream home on our own this was one of the last touches. What a disaster. The tiles are not square and none of them are of a consistent size which makes it impossible to use the clips and to lay them straight. Now we get to carry them back down from the third floor and return them to the store. Don't waste your time. Terrible product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by grunt12 Awful product
Utter garbage. None of them line up, the clips break easily, they're OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive if you have to cover a large area and they are a NIGHTMARE to clean! And even then, they're still filthy. I walked across them with a bit of dirt on my shoes and I CANNOT get the footprints to come off, even with a power washer! Awful, terrible, horrible I could go on all day. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NDDS Envirotile
I recently purchased 600 sq ft of Envirotile Cobblestone Earth. I just finished having it installed on my wood deck. Because of poor dimensional consistency it is virtually impossible to lay the tile in a straight line and avoid uneven cracks between the tile. Additionally, the tile expands and contracts with temperature changes (55 degrees F low at night to 70 degrees high) causing a change in dimension while it was being laid throughout the day and causing shifting and expansion of the tile while installation was in progress. Wide cracks appear in the morning and by noon those tiles that were positioned adjacent to one another without cracks are rising in the middle as much as two inches off the surface. Because the tile cannot be laid straight the use of Connector Clips is compromised. What will happen during the winter months? What will happen when I reposition the furniture on the deck? And, it took fifteen hours of paid labor to do what should have been a five or six hour job. Now I get to talk to Home Depot about removing and returning the uncut pieces. This is going to be a $1,000.00 up in smoke and a LOT of inconvenience. Too bad, Home Depot has always been my choice for quality products and service. Don't buy this product. NDDS

I placed this product on a deck. It weathers nicely through the sun and the snow. Like the "recycled" part. IT IS VERY HEAT REACTIVE. It grows in the heat and reduces in the cool evenings, leaving gaps and curls constantly. I used the clips to connect them originally. Anyone have a way to keep them in place?
