Among these four products are rubber floor rolls suitable for workout spaces, traditional garage floor tiles suitable for parking everything from a motorcycle to a truck on, rubber gym tile, and multi-purpose pvc flooring. Each offers high quality performance, value, ease of installation, and simple cutting processes.
This garage flooring solution is very simple to install. Each tile weighs just 3 pounds, and the product’s modular design allows the tiles to easily be snapped together without adhesive. Just start in one corner of the coverage area and add additional tiles one at a time. To cut tiles to fit around spaces or objects, you just use a straightedge and sharp utility knife to make easy, accurate cuts.
These garage mats have an interlocking edge design, so you simply piece them together like you would pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Just line up the tiles next to each other, ensuring the tabs on the edge of one lines up with the slots on the edge of the adjacent mat. Then, just step on them to pop the tabs into the slots.
To cut these garage mats to fit as needed, just use a sharp utility knife. You can deeply score the tiles on one side while laying them across the face of a 2x4 piece of wood. This causes the score line to pull open, allowing you to finish cutting through it more easily.
Rubber Flooring Rolls offer an economical and resilient solution for a garage. They are available in many different thicknesses and color fleck options, and they offer a surface with excellent traction, durability, and slip resistance. The rubber material can easily be laid over wood, cement, concrete, ceramic or other smooth surface. If you choose to adhere it, just use double sided tape. Even for a dry install, it should be taped at the perimeter and seams to keep them in place. But installing these rolls is as easy as unrolling them and cutting them to fit with a straight edge and utility knife.
This option features a tight-fitting snap-together connector system, delivering a simple installation process. They have female loops on two sides and male pegs on the other two. Just line them up so the loops point in the direction where the next tile will go. Place the peg of one over the loop of the other, and step on it lightly to pop it into place. To cut them to fit in wall to wall patterns, use a power saw to cut through the plastic - making every edge straight to fit tightly against walls. You can alternatively use a sharp utility knife and straightedge to score it repeatedly before snapping it apart. The utility knife method will require significantly more elbow grease.
