If you are installing garage floor mats or garage floor tiles in the winter months, or even if you are installing a containment mat, there is a really really simple thing you can do to make your install go much smoother. Let your garage floor warm up!

To some people it sounds like common sense and to others it sounds overly simple, but letting your garage floor warm up from its cold journey is a very important part of getting your garage floor installed properly.

PVC mats are vert rigid when they are cold. Containment mats are very hard to assemble when they are below freezing. Simply letting the products warm up in the house overnight will make your installation much easier.

With garage tiles, the locking mechanism will be easier to work with if you let the tile warm up. The locks will also be less brittle — they are designed mostly for horizontal flex as opposed to vertical flex.

Once your floor is warmed up, you can install it in any temperature. Cool temperatures will not affect a garage floor mat or garage floor tile once it has been installed.
