No special skills required.

This is a frequently-asked question we get from prospective customers and those researching the subject.

The adhesive on self adhesive flooring (well, at least the brand we sell) is very strong. Tiles can easily be repositioned if you don’t set them perfectly the first time. Within minutes, the adhesive grabs the surface and the bond gets stronger as the adhesive cures over the next several days.

The tile I removed in this video was installed in April, 2011 (and you can see the video n our YouTube Channel of this installation). All the tiles from the original installation are still firmly in place.

Benefits of Peel & Stick Floor Tile

One of the great benefits of self-sticking tile is that if a tile becomes damaged for any reason, such as the moving of furniture, or dropping something sharp or heavy, the tile can be removed and replaced. We always recommend our customers to order enough to have left over material. An extra box of tile is like a cheap “insurance policy.” With it,  you can keep your floor looking great almost indefinitely.

Removing Tile From My Garage Floor

In this video, I removed a single tile from my garage floor with ease using a heat gun designed to remove paint. I purchased this for about $20 from a hardware store. The only other tool needed was a 3″ putty knife/scraper. Almost zero pressure was needed once the heat was applied. After the tile was about half way removed the remainder peeled of easily and the tile ultimately came up in one piece with no additional effort needed. I replaced the tile with a new one.
