Very easy to put down, just snaps together. So far mine has been great, no worries and cleans easily.

The only thing that was a pita for me when doing mine was it came in 4x4 sections consisting of 4 pieces. I had to separate them out to do what I wanted and that was a bit tedious and tricky.

It is a great product though and cleans up easily. It will discolor a bit over time if you don't keep after cleaning it and your car is a daily driver.

That looks so awesome. I can't wait to do that one day.

Thanks! I debated over the traditional black/white like the checkered flag but knew that white was gonna be an even bigger PITA to keep looking nice, so I went this way...

Keep in mind this was at least 5 years ago I did this so the prices were lower. But I shopped and haggled with a few vendors and got my 20x20 garage Racedeck materials (main tiles plus tapered edges for the entrances) for 1000.00 shipped.

Just googled it real quick and found a place selling the Diamond pattern I have for 3.49sq ft so not too much higher....

Also do not use jackstands with sharp bottoms otherwise it will dig into the race deck.
