Garage Floor Tile Installation
Easy installation is one of the many benefits of garage floor tiles. Compared to epoxy or other floor coverings that can take days or weeks to be entirely ready for use – floor tiles take only hours. Below are a few different installation methods you should keep in mind as you shop.
Most garage tiles are designed to interlock when you press the connecting pieces of them together. Many tiles also come with edge pieces, so you can create smooth, finished edges where you need them. If one tile is ever damaged, you can easily pull up the tiles in that row and replace them with a new tile before laying everything back again.
Many of our carpet tiles are designed with the peel and stick method, and they feature a self-adhering back that secures each tile to the floor without the need for glue or tape. While these tiles aren’t going to move around or peel up on their own, you can still easily remove them, and they won’t leave any residue behind.
