I am getting a new double width roller garage door installed in a few weeks (by Skinner :thumbsup:) and this has prompted me to have a bit of a clear out and possibly put a nice looking floor in. I'm thinking of black and white tiles.

Will normal Lino self adhesive floor tiles laid on the sealed concrete do the job?

I was looking at something similar with tiles from Machine Mart. These look superb.

make sure the floor you lay it on is even and dry (not damp) i guess??

apart from that order some spares because the jigsaw sometimes has a mind of its own when cutting end tiles :shocked:

used a large trolley jack to jack up the 355 slight impression from the metal wheels but nothing major - for garage queens only

I've been down two routes.

The tiles in my workshop are from Heuga. Nice look, easy to lay and very durable (dropping a spanner won't chip them). Also, the way they interlock leaves a straight line rather than a dovetail pattern as some tiles do. Looks neater IMO. Problem is that in grey, as I have, my bike tyres make an un-removable brown stain for some reason. Wouldn't recommend the grey for cars then, unless you are going to have carpet tiles or something underneath the tyres. They do other colours but black may not be ideal unless you have a ton of lighting in there.

My garage is epoxy, fitted by Joe from this board. Very durable but will chip if you drop something heavy and sharp. Also looks great and easy to wash.

Cabinets are from Bott btw. Top stuff. www.bottltd.co.uk

Hope this helps.

I'm thinking of black and white tiles.


Perhaps consider this. It's a resin floor, done by Joe :thumbsup:

It's not tiles, but alternately black/white coloured resin poured on in squares, over concrete.

These guys - http://www.tacttiles.com - a lady called Pippa was very helpful. Very easy to lay (like a huge jigsaw puzzle for 2 year olds) - just need a mallet and a jigsaw for cutting round corners. they were about 2.50ish a tile I think - total cost to of the floor was about 450ish, paint was 50ish and various ebay purchased flags/blown up photos in frames/ikea red stools for me to be even sadder and sit on to admire (not done yet) (3 each!), etc came to probably 100, so overall went from cobwebby revolting place to what you see above with about 600 squids and a lot of hard graft.:grin:

In that case, another three gallon of paint this summer....:cry3:

Joe, out of interest, what "stick" will the epoxy coating actually take?

Cheers.

Thanks Steve. Here's another view of both.

Fraccie, the epoxy is pretty tough. Way better than paint. No staining from tyres either. However, you can't go throwing screwdrivers at it or dragging metal cabinets across it!

If I had to do another garage I'd get Joe in again, no question.

What Stick?? well if you aplly the levelling resin @ 2-3 mm its pretty tough ade? .... but will scratch if you gouge the surface with sharp heavy object.

I have very good Industrial system for working workshop areas:thumbsup:

Dont forget guys that the resin system can have a clean up every year or so to bring the original finish back .... bit like a restoration coat:thumbsup:

Will post up so pics soon :thumbsup:

You can see what i`ve done to my car Joe, will it take a car on axle stands being left on it, oil being spilt on it etc etc, or would one of the heavier grade industrial use stuff be better for me?
