I just "discovered" and ordered interlocking PVC floor tiles to replace the carpet in our Burro
. This should not be confused with the interlocking PVC "grating" tiles that are commonly used in showers or on boats - these tiles have a solid non-slip surface on them. We were looking for something that is durable, that the dogs will not scar up, nor should they slip or slide on them. Furthermore, we wanted something that will not harbor mildew, and finally will be easy to install or take up if needed (no padding needed with this stuff). As a bonus we can replace sections if they get damaged.
It occured for me to ask after the fact...has anyone had any experience with these?
We ordered the 5/16" thick "Multi-Lock Interlocking PVC Tile" in Gray with a Slate texture. It worked out to be about $2.50 per square foot for this stuff - not too bad! Here's a link for the Multi-Lock Interlocking PVC Tile System...
We plan to take out the existing carpet in one piece, then lay it over the interlocked tiles and use the carpet as a cutting template. We'll share our experiences of installing (in April or May) and living with the tiles if folks are interested.
