Just saw it at Menards today. Priced between 79c-1.89 a sq ft. Seems like it would be good for rentals.
You can use double sided tape on the edges and a couple of x's in the center. Seems interesting but just not sure how it would hold up.
It is easy to take up unless it has been down for a long time in a high traffic area. In those cases then the bottom of the pad sticks to the floor and peals off the carpet/pad and is likewall paper to get up. I would not put it in a property I owned mainly because I think there are better products out there.
Is this the commercial carpet squares or is it on the roll? Is it the really low-pile commercial-looking stuff?
In a lower-priced rental area it might be worth a try but with high-traffic areas and/or picky tenants it might not be a good fit. I have had very good experience with Lowe's and Home Depot carpet installs. Lowe's and HD have an instock Stainmaster carpet called Park Meadow with a 45 oz. face weight (feels really thick) and it can be installed with 6 lb 7/16 pad for under $2 per square ft. It's worked out very well for me in 2 rentals and 3 flips.
