Came across this searching on Lowes:

Barrette 8-ft x 8-ft HDPE Storage Shed Floor Kit

Comes in 2' x 2' panels, and is $128 --- just $8 each for the 16 panels. Not in stock at my local store, and wondering how solid / thick it is, but if it's solid and 1/2" or thicker, would be worth getting for me for spoilboard and material.

Anyone have it in stock locally and able to check it out? I'm worried that it's hollow underneath w/ some sort of lattice pattern molded into it....

If this doesnt work, i order my hdpe from iplastics, eplastics or online metals depending on whose cheapest at the time. The last batch of 1/2" 12x12 sheets i got was like $8 per.

Not in stock in my local store but the last house I purchased had a very similar shed. It had an extruded floor like this and wasn't solid. In fact the "ribbing" you see in the pic is probably the ribs underneath showing through from the top after extrusion. The pattern on my shed was about that tight when you looked underneath.

If it has ribs in a grid pattern, it can't be extruded; it's probably injection molded.

You can get sheets of HDPE at Sams Club or Costco - sold as kitchen cutting boards.

as far as a substrate I have had very very good results with the Menards HDPE. They sell 1/4" black in the stores for $55. You can special order 3/8" 4'x8' sheets for around $80.
