Garage Floor

Since moving into the house I’ve disliked our garage floor. It’s 100+ years old and very ugly and worn concrete. I had planned to put an epoxy floor in but after researching my options, I decided to do Racedeck tiles instead. An epoxy coat looks great, but it’s expensive, I didn’t want to do it myself because it’d take me several days and require too much prep work and wouldn’t fix the unevenness in the floor. Racedeck’s Free Flow™ tiles stay cleaner and drier because dirt and water falls through to the floor below. Plus, it’s cheaper and much easier to do myself.

The kids helped me, which included moving stuff out of the garage, vacuuming the floor and snapping all the tiles together. It only took us 90 minutes to do all that and cover most of the floor.

It took me several more hours over a couple days to finish the edges by scribing and cutting the tiles to fit the walls, stairs, garage door rails, etc. I’m very happy with it, the garage is much more pleasant place to be.
