I have a concrete slab that I would like to put plywood on before installing the tiles. Will they stick to it? Do I need to seal the plywood? I think it will be warmer and softer if I can utilize the plywood. Thanks.

Sealing the plywood is your best option. The tiles should stick fine to the plywood without being sealed - obviously make sure the woods is clean and free from dust or dirt.

If you are concerned about the tiles lifting, you could apply a light layer of tack cement to the plywood (instead of sealing it) which will assure that the wood surface is stick. Read Less

mymtcabin,
You certainly could, however be aware that your adhesive may not stick as well to the plywood, especially new plywood which may still have fresh sawdust on it.

Hello Dela2037 and thank you for your question.
The TrafficMaster Brown Ribbed 18 in. x 18 in. Carpet Tiles can be installed on a vinyl tile surface as long as it is dry, clean, smooth, and level. At the time of installation, the room temperature should be at least 50°F for best results.

Answer: 
that depends on what you are going over. If you are going over concrete it would not be a bad idea to seal it first. If you do, make sure you use a penatrating sealer not a topical one.

Hi Sue,
Thank you for asking. No you don not need to seal the floor. However if its painted, you need to make sure the paint is bonded well. Im including a link to the installation instructions. I believe the information you need is on the first page under "Preparation". Good Luck and if you have any other questions, please call us at HomeDepot.com Customer Service

Answer: 
If your room is exactly 40x40, you will need 46 cases (16 tiles / case). Your room will require 730 tiles. 40 feet divided by 1.5 feet (18 inches) = 26.7 tiles. So you'll need 26 full tiles and a little more than 1/2 of a partial tile to complete the 40 foot length.
46 cases will give you 736 tiles, so unless you have some really od edge configurations, you should end up with a few extra tiles (about Read More

I hope this is helpful for you. I applied these to a clean concrete floor and they seem to stick well - but they are not very thick, so on the concrete the final result was not a "soft" plush carpet, but more of a short commercial carpet finish.
Application was very easy - by just removing the backing strips to expose the self adhesive strips on the underside and simply press the tile onto the flooring surface. The only tools you will need will be a knife or cutting shears. Read Less

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 81 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works & Looks Better Than Expected! We recently moved into a home that had sectioned off a portion of the basement/family room to use as an optional extra bedroom. It had not been completed and the floor was simply concrete with an area rug. Not only did it look bad, it was cold and dirty - we certainly didn't want to put an extra bed in the room. We were looking for an inexpensive alternative and examined everything from laminated wood to wall to wall carpeting to vinyl floor tiles. We ended up trying the carpet tiles and couldn't have been more pleased with the result. The carpeting look won't fool anyone but the ease at which the squares were laid, the cleanliness of the floor, and the warm feel to room now has us considering additional uses for the space. Carpet is very thin but that didn't affect the look nor the viability of the product. Very economical yet solid way to cover the concrete floor. January 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just Can't Beat It This product is super! It looks nice, is reasonably priced and is easy to install! We put it down in a BR that we're turning into a little home gym...and it looks great! With the checkered pattern it forms when you lay it as instructed, other people can't even tell it's not a single roll of carpet. It is thin as most of the reviews point out, but for the price, you really can't expect more. And the advantage to having them so thin is that you don't need any tools to put them down -- we were able to cut and shape them for crooks and nooks with a pair of scissors and a box cutter. That's it! Again, great product that adds nice soft texture to hard flooring. Finally, it vacuums like regular carpet. Just can't beat it! July 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Surprisingly good when installed. I knew from the other reviews that these were going to be thin, but I had no idea how thin! I was skeptical when I opened the box (they feel like colored packaging material), but figured I'd install them since they were inexpensive. I was surprised how well they looked when I was done. Yes, they are thin, but that made them really easy to work (particularly if you have to cut in around obstructions). The adhesive worked well over our old vinyl tiles and they didn't lift during vacuuming. Personally, I wouldn't put them in a main living area, but think they are great for a basement, laundry or utility room. I have purchased much more expensive carpet tiles and these certainly don't compare, but they are also a fraction of the cost. Depending on where you want to use them, I'd certainly recommend them for the price. Just don't expect "luxury." October 23, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Inexpensive way to update I bought a "fixer" home that had terrible carpet because of the dog that used to be there. Since my first floor was a concrete slab, this was a fast (2 days) and inexpensive way to carpet my entire first floor. It seemed too light and way too thin, but the reviews convinced me to try at least one box before judging. 3 weeks later, and I am happy with the results. I washed and dried each section as I went and it seemed to help the carpet adhesive hold. December 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy for the price Installs easily easy to cut they are a little thin but you get what you pay for when on floor has optical illusion of being different shades stick to floor really well. September 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works for us Our home is a converted 105 year old brick house in a small "company" town. Faced with a room size that is outside typical carpet parameters (not a 10x12) and baseboard configuration that could not be altered, we opted for carpet tiles to replace well-word commercial grade flooring. Some reviewers noted the tiles are flimsy and perhaps they are. But any thicker and they would not have been useful in our case. Installation was easy enough. We did not follow the exact directions as starting at true center would have meant cutting a large number of the tiles. Instead we began slightly farther than center on the room length and flush against one wall. The result still looks great. Maneuvering the tiles under the baseboard with a plastic spackle knife was a quick process. In six boxes we found only one tile with a small flaw in the pile; so small that we opted not to replace it with one of the leftovers. The only complaint we offer is that the cellophane backing did not come off cleanly (in one piece). I'd estimate 20% good, 80% not good. More often than not we were lifting slivers and shards off edges and corners with a putty knife or finger nails. Adhesion is good. Vacuuming has not disturbed any tiles, edges or otherwise. The old flooring was in the room 17 years and took a beating from 4 growing girls and 2 rowdy dogs over that span. Only time will tell if these tiles will last, but since they will be subjected to 2 older adults, typically in bare or slipper-clad feet, and one mild-mannered pooch they just might.. June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVED THESE! An inexpensive way to transform a room. I read all of the reviews but was still unsure as to whether these would work for me. I ordered them thinking if they were too flimsy I would return them. My husband started the installation and I finished it. We were both impressed by the ease of installation & the quality for the price. I did a gigantic basement room very inexpensively. I'm not sure if I would use these in a high traffic area, but for a secondary recreational room, they work perfectly and the price is right! February 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly As Described Some of the reviews had me expecting a paper-thin inferior carpet square, so I was pleasantly surprised when I opened to box to find a more substantial product. One of the advantages of this kind of carpet square is the ease of cutting around obstacles. I just used scissors and had no problem. I wasn't looking for ultra-fancy, but rather something simple, yet presentable. All in all, I was very satisfied. March 12, 2015
