Honestly, I don’t remember but it was more back when I bought it. It was sold through a different company too. Just have to be careful buying cheap tiles as the warp, shrink and twist, these are industrial and have not done any of this. My father put in a Craftsman tile because it was cheaper and it is SHIT compared to my floor. The ease of installation is also a plus, it’s actually kind of fun and do it with the wife. We actually just swapped out tiles last year as my original purchase I bought a yellow tile and it didn’t go with the garage makeover last summer. Literally took a half hour to swap out. I then sold the other tiles locally.

It does ok, I would say about 80% is trapped. Depending on the fluid too. The snow and Ice seem to drain really well from the underside in the grooves my floor had in it. I have spilled oil and because it was thicker it did not go through the tiles.

For ~500sqft RaceDeck said ~$1,700 delivered.



Debating pulling the trigger but can't decide if I want all solid tiles or lay in some FreeFlows as well for the snow to drain through under where the truck gets parked.

Not a fan of the tiles.. full dealership service area quality epoxy professionally installed is the only way to go.

The tiles seem like a pain to clean if you have a daily driver that brings water and snow into the garage.

I got a couple of quotes last fall to do my garage where they grind it and then put down a professional epoxy. I remember the quotes ranging from $2.5-$4 a sq ft.

The dirt, salt, and water still gets on the concrete floor and surface of the tile

How do you clean that easily in winter for example? With an epoxy floor you can easily use a floor squeegee for quick clean ups.

I would think the free flowing tile is a bad idea unless you have some sort of drainage in the garage floor. Otherwise if you don't I would go with all solid. A squeegee should work fine even with the diamond tread or coin pattern.

I don't like the idea of the tiles if you plan to park a daily in the garage. I have some mats down for the garage gym and just from the snow melting off the cars and splashing there is salt staining and crustiness on the mats. It's nice to just be able to hose the epoxy floor down and then squeegee it.

I repainted my garage floor when I bought the house in 1999. The floor was painted before I bought the house so it would have been too much work to remove the paint to epoxy it. The paint job held up until last summer when I did it again. For the $$ I am happy with it.

I have a mat that I put down in winter when my wife puts her daily driver in the garage. I did this mainly to channel water out and that works great. The drawback to the mat is when you have to work on a car, it is difficult to roll a jack along.

For those of you with tile floors how easy it is rolling a floor jack, trans jack and other heavy gear?

I think anything that is tiled or put down in sections will have leaks of some type. This will make for a hell of a cleanup after years of use if you ever removed the tiles.

This is why a lot more people go the epoxy/polishing or polyurea polyaspartic over race deck/tiles/etc.

I think for looks, tiled sections have way more potential and for the sake of argument, they are easier to install/lay down compared to Epoxy. But, cost just about the same.
