It used to be that a garage was just a place to park your car or do a little work. A little oil on the floor was nothing to be concerned about. Now, a garage is something to be proud of with finished walls, organized storage and beautiful floors. So how can you spruce up your garage? Interlocking floor tiles are affordable, easy to install, durable and improve the appearance of your garage almost instantly.
Two of the most popular garage floors recently are epoxy floors and floor tiles. Both products are priced similarly. The advantage to using floor tiles is that they require almost no tools and are easy to install without any experience. The pieces snap together like puzzles and can be done by almost anyone in just a few hours as opposed to the days it takes for the epoxy flooring to dry.
Interlocking floor tiles are also incredibly durable. There are two options, a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and a more ridged polypropylene tile. Neither option requires prepping of the existing floor other than a good sweeping. Both are flexible and made with rubber-like material that allows the new flooring to conform to your existing floor as well as providing traction and anti-fatigue properties. Both options are rated for 5,000 pounds of pressure per square inch and 50,000 pounds of rolling weight. They can handle storage cabinets, jacks, hand trucks, tool boxes, freezing temperatures, sun, etc.
With a computer program available on the vendor’s site you can design the floor you want using the dimensions of your garage. You can choose a solid colored floor, a checkered design, borders, stripes, or any other design. Simply print out the design you made yourself, and follow the pattern as you snap your floor together. It’s that simple.
If you are looking for a beautiful garage floor that you can create and install yourself, interlocking floor tiles may be just what you are looking for. It is stylish and can withstand everything you put it through.
