Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RBH Ready to tear it all up and return it!!!!!
We bought 160 of these to do our expansive concrete front porch. The porch is level.
We're experiencing the same poorly machined, uneven size differences in the tiles that others have mentioned. I wish we'd read the reviews before buying the product and spending so much time on it.
The tiles are so poorly machined that the size differences make a huge difference in trying to get them to line up/hook together. In addition, several of them are "warped"; they're not even machined with a straight edge on all 4 sides.
We've experienced the same "pop up" problem that others have mentioned in other reviews.
The clips? A whole other frustration of the process. The little spaces that the clips fit into are inconsistent. Some clips fit, some don't.....and the mallet only causes a bounce and they don't "seat" into the cracks. Even with a bit larger clips sent to us by the company to try, this didn't help. They're so big that they don't cinch the tiles together and the gap becomes a great dirt collecter size.
We keep trying to figure out a way to make them work, since the overall look and feel is nice. But, man...a little more care and consistency in machining these tiles and their clips would've made a BIG difference in installation. We are nearly ready to pack up the whole lot and trot it back to HD. :(
Oh? And cutting? Yeah...a utility knife works and there are so many for us to cut that it seems like we'll be here for another 6 months making cuts. We tried other saws (circular, with a few different type blades, a jig saw, a multi-tool, linoleum cutter). No luck. Utility knife gives the best cut. We do have a Japanese saw that we have yet to try. It looks promising.
We've spent hours and hours and hours on trying to get this product to look nice on the porch.
And...forget installation being done by Home Depot. They don't provide installation services for this product. No wonder.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by velcro ugly uneven sidewalk in back yard
Very bad sidewalk cracking, had to patch year after year. So I bought 34 tiles and this is the result. Some corners up slightly but I'm sure they will settle in time. Used clips on EVERY square due to unevenness in concrete. 100% improvement for us. Just wish CLIPS were a little thicker, they just rest in the tile grooves no mallet tapping required. Hoping to glue down just two corners on two tiles!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY2inPB Easy to work with...
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 4.0 out of 5.0 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by HANK Covers a lot of surface imperfections,as long as surface is somewhat level. The finished result is short of beatiful!
I refinished my roof covered porch area at my cottage using brown cobblestone. My luck is that it was East facing. I thereby do not get direct sunlight during the day and keeps the dark brown tiles cool and comfortable. Cutting the tiles takes a bit of experimenting . I ended up using my table saw (with much care) I cannot imagine cutting thru the tough rubber with a utility knife. I did have to go to Home Depot with a tape measure to select the size to +/- 1/8 inch tolerance. Went thru at least 150 blocks to fill my need of 90 pieces Even then I had to select placement of the pieces to give a satisfactory alignment. The end product was beautiful! I get many compliments on the floor. Wonderful to walk on barefoot. I am now looking to cover my beat up wood deck at home but, I'm looking to use a lighter color because the deck is in direct sun,

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AJnSJ Great potential but lacks the details....
Great idea, but poorly executed. Tiles don't match in shape, size, or even color. Random color patterns look okay, but too many gaps due to size variances, even when using clips at all locations. I laid it over concrete patio, but it traps water, etc underneath, especially due to large gaps. Rust from hammock legs stained it too. Does look good, just wish it fit better and cleaned easier.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Granpy Recycled Rubber, Made in Canada - Great !
The product seems great – 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.
