Garage Floor Installation – Case Study

With a passion for all things automotive, this recent garage floor project gets the thumbs up

Customer enquiry

A recent customer and devoted automotive enthusiast, contacted our team of flooring experts to ask, “Are Flexi-Tile PVC interlocking floor tiles suitable for garage floors?”

The simple answer is “Yes’, we design and manufacture our floor tiles specifically for garage use. PVC floor tiles are hardwearing, incredibly strong, easy to install and provide spaces with a protective comfortable surface layer.

Challenges with concrete floors

Our client was searching for an alternative flooring solution to concrete. His existing concrete floor had no aesthetic appeal and lacked comfort underfoot. Concrete floors also create a dusty atmosphere over time, and if the surface becomes damaged, the floor will easily accumulate loose debris.

In order to keep our clients collection of classic vehicles in mint condition and improve the comfort and aesthetics of his garage work space – ‘concrete’ was simply not fit for purpose.

Hassle free installation process

At Flexi-Tile, we understand the importance of a seamless and straightforward installation process for our customers.

  • Prepare the subfloor: Clean and free the floor of debris. Our tiles can be directly laid on damaged, cracked or uneven surfaces.
  • Interlock tiles: Unpack and lay out the floor tiles. Start interlocking the tiles using a rubber mallet to fix in place to create a seamless surface.
  • Ramps and edges: Finish your project with neat edging and corners. Ramps allow for seamless transition between your garage floor and surrounding areas, fitted using the same interlocking mechanism.
  • Enjoy the long term benefits: Experience the comfort underfoot, the aesthetic appeal of a well-designed space and the assurance of a durable and long-lasting flooring solution.

How to select the right floor tile for the job?

We offer a range of floor tile textures, colours and thicknesses (5mm, 7mm and 10mm). Our flooring experts will discuss your specific requirements and help you to select the right floor tiles, along with advice on ramps and edges to finish your project neatly.

Garage project tile selection: Flexi-Tile 7mm

In this project, the garage floor needed to be able to withstand multiple moving vehicles and carry heavy weight bearing loads, therefore we recommended our Flexi-Tile heavy-duty 7mm floor tile in our most popular colour – dark grey. Flexi-Tile 7mm is so durable it can withstand forklift traffic, production machinery up to 800kg (3 wheel traffic) or 1000kg (4 wheel traffic).

The result from this recent project is nothing short of impressive! We extend our thanks to our client who kindly shared the before and after photos, showcasing how Flexi-Tile can transform a garage from a mundane concrete space to an area fit for showcasing prized classic vehicles.
