It will also act as a safety feature in preventing people from slipping on the wet or slippery concrete. If you choose tile as your garage floor covering, you will have many choices in patterns and colors to choose. An interlocking floor tile is quite easy to install and does not take a lot of time to install either. It can also be used in a basement or workshop as it is not limited to use in the garage.

Garage floors have been a growing home improvement project in many houses today. They add comfort, warmth, safety and beauty to a normally cold, hard place. The most popular types of floors are rolled (sometimes call rubber garage floors) and garage floor tile. When it comes to garage tiles there are many types to chose from including hard and soft. The hard garage tiles are floating tiles and they are either perforated to allow water and spills to drain below them or solid to somewhat keep spills above the tile. They usually have some kind of an attaching system that allows them to snap together and stay in place. There are various types of plastic tiles and the quality of these tiles will vary greatly. Always be sure to know the type of flooring you are buying because when it comes to plastic garage tiles, price is not nearly as important as quality. Cheap garage floor tiles can warp and break under heavy loads.

As it comes in sheets instead of flooring tiles it is fixed to a subfloor of marine plywood / sealed mdf or applied onto a self-leveling PVA adhesive.
