After building my house over the last few years my garage had become the dumping ground for any leftover building materials. Made me crazy, every time I was looking for something and took me longer to find stuff than doing the job I had planned to do, I am sure you can sympathies!
I finally cleaned up the garage, gave it a new coat of paint and built some storage cabinets. The truly finishing touch was to put down some flooring, after researching on the web the best product and price was from Garage Flooring. Ordered Coin Grid-Loc Tiles, they shipped fast and did not disappoint!
Please see my photos of finished garage.
I did our 3 car garage in two afternoons (had a lot of stuff to move around, etc.) Used foam underlay from local builder's supply store so their is no clacking when walking on it. A jigsaw with a fine blade did a good job for all the cuts, etc. The order process and delivery co. was absolutely "first rate" and it arrived much faster than I ever expected. I also painted the concrete edging around the garage floor wall with a color matched paint for a finished look. I really like it and personally think it looks better than my friend's epoxy garage (for about half the price) plus it is much more comfortable to walk on/kids to play on/etc..
As others have stated in their reviews this is a very good product. They ship quickly and the product goes down easily. I did put down the roofing felt that others had recommended but I still did my whole 19' X 19' garage by myself in about 4 hours. One tip... instead of using a hammer, I would align the corner connecting to the others in place and kick it in with my leg/feet. Kept me from having to bend over very much. I wound up being short 3 pieces due to my own error, so I ordered those. They promptly sent them to me without any shipping charge! I would say these are great folks.
The interlocking flooring is better than advertised, and extremely easy to install even for the novice do it your-selfer. The flooring goes down with a stomp of the heel or a rubber hammer. I chose a rolling stool and a rubber hammer as I have a 3 car and a single car garage, (AND I'M 70) A saber saw or table saw is also needed to trim some of the perimeter pieces. Cleanup is quick and easy with a wet mop, and wala - no stains from dripping auto HVAC condensation, oil, etc.
This product is far superior to an epoxy floor with sprinkles - which I have had and experienced paint lifting due to hot tires and also discoloration which is impossible to remove.

exelent delivery, good comunication, my garage floor is fixed, as professionals does.
I transformed the garage floor for a friend/former co-worker after my brother did his - once done, she was extremely pleased and repeated ... "exceeded my expectations !!" Thanks for a great ,and easy to install, product - no need to paint ever again!
In July I sent pictures of the garage floor thinking that the colors of plastic tiles, gunmetal and graphite, were fading. I found that I was in error when I showed Mr. Steve Smith, floor installer, about the fading the next day when he returned to tile the two shelves in the garage. He stated that the color was a marking for his making sure that the tiles were aligned correctly. I immediately called you and left a message that the tiles were not fading and I made a big mistake and please disregard the pictures of what I sent showing the marking on the driveway.
You were so kind in returning my call which I was embarrasses and very apologetic about to my incorrect statement. I told you that I will send you pictures of the shelves that Mr. Smith covered with the same tiles of the floor. Enclosed are pictures of the shelves, as well as the newly painted garage walls and repairs of the walls. My garage looks as if it were recently built on the home. The enclosed pictures will show the walls repaired as well. I really love the color of the attic opening that is painted in gunmetal to show the distinction of the ceiling and the attic opening. I have two friends wanting their garage floors installed with the plastic tiles.
I would like to thank you, Alyssa & Kim/Alice for working with me in having my garage beginning to look like a showroom. Kim was the first representative I had the opportunity to speak with and she gave me and Mr. Smith very informative information to assist in completing the garage floor. She is very knowledgeable and answered all concerns we had. She sent samples of the plastic tiles, as well as the rubber underlayment.
Kim went beyond just selling the products. She gave instructions how to lay the tile, especially from the walls for swelling. She also explained the reason for order the rubber underlayment to keep the plastic tiles sound proof from the cement garage floor. It would have been a disaster for me to have ordered the tile and only to find out the clicking noise from not having purchased the rubber underlyament for sound proof.
Thank you again for your concerns. Most companies would not have shown the interest as you did after a customer has purchased the products. It tells me about your company and the wonderful employees.
Also, your company rates are cheaper than your competitiors. Before closing, mr. Smith took samples of the plastic tiles to show his customers how they can also improve the look of their garage. It will give your company, as well as him more business.

My 9 year old daugther & I made a two day project out of it.
DAY 1: I laid the tiles in place & she used a rubber mallet to set them in place. We did one bay of a 2 car garage.
DAY 2: We did the other bay of a 2 car garage. My daughter placed the tiles & I used the rubber mallet to set them in place.
This was the first time she worked with me from start to finish on one of my projects!
Easy Install, I did have to use a band-saw to cut the top row & side row to fit.
Water, grease & oil spills clean up really nice.
I was worried about parking a heavy SUV-sized vehicle on it. After one month, I don't see a problem with it. I think these tiles should last a very long time. (Much longer than any type of paint job!!!)
I saw product online and was hesitant, took a dive and purchased and was not disappointed one bit. Friends and neighbors are at awe on how it looks.
Our church had a concrete floor in one room of our Sunday School which could not be repaired easily, so we decided to cover it with these tiles and have a bit of fun as well by incorporating a giant checker/chess board. The floor was installed by two members that are mechanical engineers, and we both agree that the product is very well designed and manufactured. We had no issues at all with the installation, and completed the 450 S.F. project in about 3 hours. The membership is very impressed with the floor, and some are looking to purchase these tiles for their home use.
Floor arrived in a timely manner. It was easy to install and looks great - very satisfied.
Worked great with the Vented Grid-Loc Tiles.
Works great for my man cave theme.
Hey there everyone. Just letting you know the black and white coin tiles are fantastic. The installation is extremely simple with the snap together design and they look absolutely magnificent. I love the new look of my garage floor.
I wanted to cover my cement garage floor so that the garage could be more useful. My husband installed it in a weekend. Everyone who sees it comments on it. My only regret is that I didn't do this earlier. We love it.
The product is amazing. Well conceived. Strong yet so easy to install. I did 700 sqft in 8 hours with perfect trims. It’s. Like a lego set.
This has been the easiest order ever, received my order after just a few short days. Received the perfect amount of tiles, installation was super easy. Over all very pleased with the product, would buy again if in need.
Although not meant to be used in a working garage, but for a average Joe, it's perfect.
Strong, durable and easy to maintain. Personally I'd recommend the coin style over diamond plate for cleaning and upkeep, the edges of the diamond plate catch dirt and debris. But either are visually stunning.
Spent months working out a design and made sure I really liked the overall way it enhanced and brightened the garage.
Easy to cut edges with a fine tooth circular saw blade for excellent edging.
Will be thinking seriously about using the same product for the upstairs workshop!
Had these tiles for years in another garage. Just installed in my current garage.
I bought this flooring for my garage/ workout room, me and my wife loved it!!! At first my wife was skeptical because it felt like cheap plastic but after a couple weeks it settles.
