Three Tips for a Better Garage Floor Tile Project

Garage Floor Tile TipsGarage floor tiles have become a hot commodity and for good reason. They require very little preparation and installation is a snap. But there are a couple of things that you can do to take the garage tile project from being ‘good’ to being an outstanding project that will exceed what even the professionals do.

    Whatever saw you are going to use — and likely a combination of a good table saw, circular saw and or jig saw, spend a few dollars and get a very good laminate or plastics cutting blade. Depending on the rotation of the blade, how you will cut will vary. Take one tile and make a cut with the tile up versus down with each saw you are going to use. Make note of which way the saw performed best. There will be a major difference in many cases.

    Protect your concrete! People misunderstand ‘no prep required’ to mean that they should not do anything to protect their concrete. At the end of the day cement is the structural part of your garage floor and you need to protect it. Installing the proper densifier and waterproofing product will reduce damage to concrete from freeze-thaw and permanently increase its resistance to abrasion — whole reducing dusting. We suggest B4 Tile & Mat Prep solution as an affordable way to protect your floor before installing your garage tile.

    Lastly, go down to your LOCAL lumberyard or hardware store and purchase a roll or two of synthetic landscape fabric. Cover your entire floor with it, before you install your tile. It will act as a slip sheet between the concrete and your garage floor tile. It will make a tremendous difference in the way your garage ‘sounds’ after you complete your install.

Obviously we also think you should start with a quality, American Made garage floor tile like our TrueLock HD tiles from $2.39. But, whatever tile you use, these three tips will make a major difference in your satisfaction with the overall project.
