Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NOLAEvac2Dallas The perfect touch to freshen up my garage space.
These floor tiles look great and hid a lot of the imperfections in my garage floor that an epoxy coat would have left behind (stains, cracks, uneven spots). Walking on the floor is also less intrusive than a hard concrete floor. When its cold outside, the floor doesn’t get unbearably cold to walk on without shoes or socks.
Preparation seemed to take the most time. Cleaning a concrete floor with 30 years of grunge seemed next to impossible. After covering the walls with plastic, scrubbing with a broom and detergent and rinsing with a pressure washer most of the dirt was gone. Imperfections larger than a quarter (holes, cracks etc were filled with concrete filler and all of the drywall compound that was present and stuck on the surface was scraped off to a somewhat even surface. I worried about adhesion since there was still some surface dirt that was impossible to remove. I had no worries after putting down the first tile as NOTHING was moving that tile out of place once I pressed it onto the concrete. I had a helper and it took about three days to complete a 540 square foot garage. We figured out after cutting the last couple of pieces that the easiest way to cut the tile was by scoring the adhesive paper side with a straight edge and bending the tile back and forth a few times. Old pillows would have made for less pain from sitting/laying on the floor to align the tiles up just perfectly.
This product is of high quality. I tried some other brand of interlocking tiles with no adhesive and they came apart, separated, and slipped from foot and vehicular traffic. It is easy to clean. For the OCD personality types, you will be happy that you can sweep and mop this floor once you see any signs of dirt and debris. My car sits in the garage for four days at a time and no indentations are left on the floor from the tires. There isn’t much competition on the market for a similar product; therefore, this product is on the upper end of a garage floor price point
