Greatmats - For Products To Cover Cracks In Garage Floor Surfaces

The flooring solutions highlighted here would perform really well in a garage environment - even one with a damaged and cracked subfloor. They are easy to install, and they deliver so many features and benefits. Just remember that the more uneven the subfloor, the higher the likelihood of tile separation, especially if you find a significant elevation change in the cracked concrete underneath a seam in your finished garage flooring. As a general rule, if the change in elevation is greater than the thickness of your tile, additional prep work is needed to create a more level surface.
