I found another company with interesting tiles, Swisstrax. They did Jay Leno's garage and have some skeletal tiles for over drains, etc. Looks pretty nice. I am awaiting a quote from them and RaceDeck on my two, two-car garages.

I'm looking to finish the floors in my shop. The cost of the tile floor is killing me. The Racedeck for my 28x30 is going to be close to $3k with my labor to install.

I just got a quote from a contractor to epoxy the floor for $1200. He said I should have no troubles out of the epoxy on new concrete. He also said he uses a urethane clear to lock in the color coat to prevent peeling.

I'm still on the fence as to which way to go.

I just did my own epoxy in my three car garage for a lot less if you are willing to do it yourself. I used off the shelf garage floor paint, primer and epoxy sealant from Home Depot. I think I spent around $250 to $300 all in.

You can see the floor in this picture. Let me know if you want any other information.

I had a local company that sells a floor covering tile come out to give me an estimate on my shop floor. Their brand of flooring was more like a rubber interlocking tile. I was not too impressed, but any how she was going to quote me some prices on cabinets also.

I had Emailed Racedeck last week and received some literature in the mail. Surprisingly I got a phone called Tuesday from a representative and today I received a full tile sample! This is a much superior product to the local installers.

Cutting of these tiles to custom fit them to your room can be easily done with a fresh utility knife and straight edge like a yard stick or ruler. Material – Constructed entirely of a proprietary and durable blend of flexible PVC. This blend ensures that the tiles are flexible and have the anti fatigue qualities similar to rubber flooring but also the durability, long life, and chemical resistance associated with polyvinyl chloride.
Bump... Interesting stuff.

I'm thinking of spiffing up my tight 3 car garage.

I got a sample in the mail from raceDeck..I was not very happy with it as its "Plastic" and appears to be slippery. I am more of a fan of the rubber tile and I am looking for a dealer. I saw one at an auto show but lost their card. I must say though it was cool of racedeck to send me a sample in the mail but they did not include a price for my 20x20 garage.

Did the Lowes 2-part epoxy 7 years ago and it's still is perfect however be sure if you or anyone else pick-up cans with the SAME LOT NUMBER as one of my three cans was a shade off the other two.........had to repaint that section. Otherwise specles and all are perfect.

A friend of mine redid his garage with racedeck as his epoxy lifted after two years.

I like the rubber tile idea more, that's something I will investigate. Wife also mentioned the Costco stuff, I've not seen it, I will poke around. So the rubber tile stuff could be $300-500 per spot, so for tight 3 car, maybe $1200-1500?

If you opt to use a non-slick rubber type tile, just remember not to turn your wheels at all on the tiles. With the plastic RaceDeck tiles, you stand a better chance of not popping out an entire section of tiles because the tires will actually rotate on the plastic, for the most part. With a rubber type tile, the tire and the tile will kind of stick together a bit and turning the wheels will likely twist the tiles out and damage the attachment points between the tiles.

I know the perfect thing! Got some a while back. Rubber Tiles are well your best option? Take a looK.

Anybody try the Griots Stuff??

I've used Rustoleum, Baer, Sherwin Williams, and about to pull the trigger on some UCoat it until I got my catalog from Griots today.

Reviews say its great.

I like the house garage to have a great floor too, but for some reason, nothing lasts like an industrial coating.

Thoughts
Ivan?

^^ I had Racedeck at a different place and if you don't try to lift more than a Motorcycle, you're good to go.

I didn't have any luck with it and provided, its great to look at, it's not for the operational/always doing projects in the Garage type DIYer.

Gladiator Garageworks

Not just because we sell it, but because it's a great product. We had Gladiator boxes and flooring in our shop long before we started selling it.


No problems with jacking cars or trucks on this stuff, load rating is nuts, and lifetime warranty.

My next door neighbor did epoxy 1.5-2 years ago, and it's already coming off. I just noticed that.

I had a pilot line I ran epoxy coated The real trick is to thoroughly clean the floor, and repair any places the concrete might spall. Also any oil spots ought to be cleaned with TSSP and then muriatic acid etched.

Finally during application, some small amount of glycol ethers will help the epoxy to level perfectly. Also you need to apply in the summer, or plan on allowing 3 days if you've got cool weather.

For those garages with serious damage, go to DIY websites and spend a few nights preparing the floor. I did all of this on mine, and applied the last 10 gallons of epoxy we never used on my lab floor. Came out beautiful, with about an 1/8 " build on a large 3 car garage.

Part of the final treatment is about 3 gallons of clear that are used to deal the white and blue plastic specks under a clear coat.

Anything other than a cement base or hard material will not hold up well if you do heavy work on it. I just went and bought some close out tile and put it in.
