As experts in creating the perfect fitted garage we are often shocked by the condition that home owners across the UK leave their garage in. The general problem is that most people leave the garage to become a cluttered and dusty mess where everything is out of place and all those tools, sports and gardening equipment can never be found. The second biggest issue that we find is the condition of customers floors. Over years of neglect many garage floors can become damp, cracked and dusty, creating unstable and uncomfortable floors that can even create structural issue with the garage. However, with new garage flooring solutions being introduced all the while there is no reason why every garage across the UK cant have a comfortable and hard wearing floor that creates a perfect finish within the garage.
Tiles are actually quite easy to install. Theres very few left on the market that dont install by simply sticking to concrete or clicking together. By far, the biggest concern when it comes to installation should be the condition of the concrete garage floor. Do you have a damaged or really badly stained floor? Youll probably want to avoid the sticky type, then, and go instead with the snap together type. Does you floor still look like new? Peel and stick tiles tend to last longer, and are often cheaper.
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.
