Best PVC Garage Floor Tile

I’d prefer my garage floor concrete not commit suicide by sucking in the winter salt and snow. To protect it, I will put down a PVC floor tile specifically made for garage floors. I found several really good brands, so choosing the “best garage floor tile” was just a matter color preference. That’s why I’m going to show you the brands I like so that you can pick from a good set of choices.

The best garage floor tile for me is a PVC interlocking floor covering from IncStore. It’s easy to install, holds more weight than I’ll ever drive into the garage, is slip-resistant (can’t say that about epoxy), and it has a 25 year warranty.

IncStore is the Best Garage Floor Tile that You Can Bring into the House

The first thing I like about IncStore floor tiles is that it doesn’t off gas into your lungs. I bought a hand exercise back last Christmas that made the house smell like a tire fire. IncStore tiles unpack without a scent.

Not Slippery When Wet

Next I loved that these tiles have a grippy feel to them, which the raised “coin” design only enhances. One of the major reasons I rejected epoxy (besides that I would never be able to do a good job without professional help) was that my garage floor gets wet, and wet epoxy is slippery. IncStore tiles have an anti-slip coating and the raised coin design only adds to that grip.

Oil Doesn’t Sink In

Besides protecting the floor from salt, sand and moisture, I also want to protect it from oil, gasoline, adhesives and paint. I want to be able to fill the leaf blower gas tank without worrying that my floor will melt. IncStore garage tiles have a tough barrier that oil, gas and magic markers can’t penetrate. The interlocking tabs lock so tightly that nothing falls into the seams.

Not Cushioned, But Definitely Cushion-y

If you have a modern upscale kitchen floor, you’ve experience the cushioned, anti-fatigue properties of modern plastics chemistry. PVC tiles are superior to polypropylene tiles because they share some of the soft, anti-fatigue qualities of an indoor floor. IncStore tiles are tough enough to park a tank, and they still have a bit of a cushion-y feel to them, giving them a somewhat anti-fatigue feel.

How About a Gym?

I’ve always wanted to put a “gym floor” down in our extra bedroom. Because IncStore tiles do NOT off gas and because they have a slight cushion-y feel, these tiles are perfect to use in a home gym. Businesses put them in retail locations, so you know they can handle the traffic. They protect the floor form gym equipment while being just soft enough that you can’t claim the floor is too hard when it’s time to do pushups. IncStore says that people put  these in utility rooms, sheds and, if you have one, airplane hangars.

How to Buy IncStore Tiles

When you size out your garage floor, assume an extra 10% for waste. This is less important than when putting down carpet or wood, because you do not have to cut anything to put down PVC tiles.  You want a little extra because if you under measure, the next batch you buy to finish up might have a color variation. Each tile is 20.5 inches x 20.5 inches and weighs a whopping four lbs. An 8-tile pack covers just over 23 sq. ft.

For example:

  • garage floor is 18 x 20 ft.
  • that is 18 times 20 = 360 square feet
  • the box carries 23 sf.
  • divide 360 x 23 = 15.6, round up to 16
  • get a minimum of 16 boxes
  • add 10% if you’re feeling cautious: 15.6 boxes x 10% = 1.56, so add 2 (round) boxes for a total of 18
  • based on current prices, that’s about $1710 for the whole garage floor

GarageTrac is the Most Garage Floor Tile for the Money

GarageTrac Diamond interlocking PVC tiles don’t sacrifice quality but still sell for a bargain price. The diamond raised design acts like the IncStore coin, it gives you a bit of grip to your floor.

Don’t Fall Down

The whole point of my anti-epoxy rant was that it’s too difficult to apply. But there’s another really good reason I prefer PVC, and that’s because epoxy is slippery and PVC is not. The GarageTrac tiles are made of a proprietary anti-slip plastic formation to prevent slipping. The raised diamonds give you traction on top of that.

Also Lung Friendly

GarageTrac’s 12 x 12 in. Diamond tile is also free of off gassing, so when you take it out of the box, it doesn’t punch you in the lungs with fossil fuel prep gas. This makes the GarageTrac tile suitable for indoor gym, utility room and mud room floors as well.

Clean it When You Want

The GarageTrac tile is engineered to repel oil, gas and household chemicals. Clean the floor with a soapy mop for sticky messes and a vacuum cleaner for the rest. The interlocking tabs seal together to prevent any spills from falling through the seams.

How to Buy GarageTrac Tiles

Each tile is one square foot.
Each tile is one square foot.

Multiply the garage width and length to get the square feet. I like to add 10% to my floor orders but it’s a little bit less necessary with floor tiles as there’s no cutting involved. You don’t need any installation tools but a rubber mallet is always a nice helper. The GarageTrac Diamond tiles are 12 x 12 in.  and there are 48 tiles (and therefore 48 square feet) per box.

For example:

  • garage floor is 18 x 20 ft.
  • that is 18 times 20 = 360 square feet
  • the box carries 48 sf.
  • divide 360 x 48 = 7.5 boxes, round up to 8
  • get a minimum of 8 boxes
  • add 10% if you’re feeling cautious: 8 boxes x 10% = .8, so add 1 (round up) boxes for a total of 9
  • based on current prices, that’s about $1179 for the whole garage floor
