Rated 3 out of 5Â by Granpy Recycled Rubber, Made in Canada - Great !
The product seems great â Recycled Rubber, Made in Canada, durable and comfortable to walk on.We have installed it around our pool.
The problems are inconsistent sizing, colour differentiation (lack of quality control), clips do not come close to fitting and tiles are difficult to cut.( but using a good quality jig saw blade works)
The tiles do get hot for bare feet on sunny days but a slight sprinkle with a hose corrects that.
I have written Multi Home via email regarding some concerns (no reply), I followed up with two phone calls (still no one called me back). It is a shame that a product with such great market potential is produced by such an unsupportive company.
But I still recommend this product.

After considering cement pavers, calculating weight, amount of sand needed & installation we decided to go with this lightweight alternative and were very pleased with the product. It required less sand than cement pavers and were lighter. The best thing about them is that they were easily cut with a standard utility razor knife.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by OldBob Great product for the price.
I purchased 50 of these to place on a front entryway to cover a crack and to eliminate a lip from raised concrete. I sorted through them while I was selecting them in order to get 50 that matched in color. When I got home, I found at least 15 that in the sunlight had a slightly different color. So back to Home Depot to find 15 more that matched the ones that I had.
Installing the pavers was easy. I had to cut many of the tiles in order to fit them into the entryway. Cutting the tiles was easy using a sharp utility knife. The biggest problem that I had was the uniformity of the tile size. The description says 18 inch by 18 inch. None of the tiles measured 18 inches. Measurements ranged from 17 5/8 inches to 17 7/8 inches. I ended up using the shorter tiles in the places where I had to cut the tile. Even so, some of the joint lines did not line up perfectly.
Overall, my wife and I like the tiles. They look good and the joint lines that don't line up perfectly are only noticed if someone is looking for them. We have found that because of the way the tiles had to be fitted into the entryway, a couple of the tiles raise and buckle in the Summer heat. This was fixed by trimming the tiles somewhat. The crack that was in the entryway is no longer visible and the 1/2 inch lip from the raised concrete is gone. The cost of the tiles was a lot less that the cost of removal and replacement of the concrete entryway.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by seagirl Looks good, durable to lots of foot traffic. Expensive if covering a large area.
We placed it on a short walkway leading to an inground pool as a trial to see if we wanted to invest in enough of the tiles to surround the pool. Well, NO. It does look good and is super durable. Also, stays in place and never had to be adjusted or shifted. But, hot, hot, hot. Not a good product for lots of barefoot traffic. Much hotter than the concrete. Great for walkways where shoes are usually being worn or shaded.

I bought these to put on two roof decks over torch-down. They are relatively easy to install (with one caveat) and even easy to cut for the necessary trimmed edges. Most of the time the coloring was fairly consistent, tho when I got some from another branch it was apparently a different batch as the color mix was noticeably different. There is also an occasional and noticeable difference in a tile size (up to 1/2") so if you end up w/ one of those in a row it can mess up the whole alignment - I've had to go back and replace the 'off' one to keep things looking nice. They are really dense but somewhat cushy, nice under the feet. These have only been laid for a month so don't have any long-term opinions yet.
