Finally, garage floor tiles are an excellent option for a custom look. There are more styles and colors available than epoxy paint or floor mats, and the tiles themselves interlock for easy installation. They are more expensive and only slightly more difficult to install than floor mats, and range in price from $3 - $6 per square foot. The tiles come in wood, rubber or polyvinyl. Wooden garage floor tiles have a plastic interlocking system underneath them and provide a cushioned surface for standing, but they are noisier to walk or drive on than polyvinyl or rubber tiles. Rubber and polyvinyl garage floor tiles usually interlock themselves, without a plastic frame underneath, and are durable, withstanding up to 50,000 lbs of pressure. They absorb sound, do not damage easily, and maintain their good looks for years. All three types of garage floor tiles are porous enough to allow liquid to drain through them without allowing small pieces of hardware to fall through, making them an excellent choice for flooring if you regularly hose down your garage floor.
This type of flooring surface is good if you are attempting to clean up a garage floor for re-sale. Again, you can apply this type of surface yourself with relative ease. You can also touch up spots that become too dirty or stained in time. It is very important that you repair any cracks or other damage with a good sealer. If you fail to do so you will find that many surfaces will wear out quickly and tiles may come loose making it difficult to repair in the future.
You can now begin to apply your new garage floor paint once you have properly cleaned your flooring. You may have to mix some coating solutions together depending on the paint or coat you choose to apply to your garage flooring. Once the mix is ready, apply the paint or coat thoroughly onto your floor with a small bristle shop brush or floor painting type brush. If you want to, you can even add paint chips to your coat or paint for a more unique and outgoing paint job. You just sprinkle the chips around the floor or in the locations you want them. Once you do this, repeat the paint or coat application to make sure your floor is completely covered.
