Any of our tiles can be used for both residential or commercial use. What type of tile a person goes with depends on what is going on in the garage. If you are using your garage as a shop where car jacks will be used, we recommend using our flex tiles as these are better suited to handle these without cracking. You can use a car jack on our hard plastic tiles, but you will need to place a plywood board or steel plate under the jack to diffuse the weight. Also, if you are going to be on your feet a lot in your garage or on the ground, we would recommend our softer flex tiles as they will provide you with added comfort underfoot. Our hard plastic tiles can be made comfortable underfoot and less noisy with a rubber underlayment. If you want to create unique patterns in your garage, then you will want to go with our hard plastic tiles. Also, if you have a car with performance tires, we would recommend our hard plastic tiles as they will not get stained by the tires.
