Garage Floors


I am thinking about installing a garage tile floor I saw at Lowe's called FlexiTile Interlocking Tile in my garage. It is a soft vinyl tile. Any one use it? Is it easy to install?

It's easy to install. Just whack it together with a mallet. I'm not convinced this stuff if all that great for a garage. I've heard all kinds of people wanting to use it but I've never heard good or bad after than. Supposedly it can withstand commercial traffic, like fork trucks rolling over it.

Thank you, They tell me it is good for the garage traffic and will not buckle or move with cars. But they are getting a new one thicker and a bit harder for commericial that you can drive a fork lift on. I like that it is soft and doen't sound like walking on hard plastic like race deck

Regular urethanes probably won't hold up the best in a garage. A high solids urethane should work fine. I sell one from P&L called...High Solids Urethane. Comes in 4 colors and clear. From what I've seen it holds up better than the Rustoleum type DIY kits you but at the box stores and it's easier to apply. It's got some powerful fumes though and costs just as much as the kits do.

our garage floor will not be used to park cars in, it will be primarily used as a wood shop and storage. im interested in knowing if a concrete stain/sealer can be used.
