Color Notice:  Colors can vary in shade from web site image, and also from sample material.  Production batch color shades can vary from different production runs.  If adding to an existing project please call and speak to us about color matching options.  It is highly recommended that you order enough material for your project in one order, as we sell high volumes of the grey it’s very unlikely we will have the same dark grey batch a customer has ordered from.  If you need assistance with tile quantities call our sales staff with your measurements.

Tile Calculation:

Center Tiles are 20″ x 20″

Take the width in feet multiplied x 12″ and divide by 20″ = A

Take the length in feet multiplied x 12″ and divide by 20″ = B

A X B = quantity of tiles needed

Quick estimate for 20″ x 20″ tiles:

Total sq feet divide by 2.77777 = quantity of tiles needed

Say no to Epoxy Paints and Yes to an easier long last solution.

Epoxy painted floors are popular for covering concrete in the garage, warehouse flooring, military floors and other applications.  If you have a new concrete floor, then epoxy may work for you.  However if your concrete has stains or is in disrepair then putting down epoxy is very labor intensive, and expensive.  We offer some easy long term solutions for covering old cracked painted floors.

epoxy_old
Removing old epoxy

Repairing concrete that is stained or has old paint requires several days and steps of cleaning and prepping the concrete.  To remove old paint or stains, you will acid wash the floor to loosen the epoxy and scrape away the old paint.  If stains have penetrated the concretes top layer, you will need to grind down a layer of concrete to remove the stain.  Acid wash is a  harsh chemical, and protective gear is highly recommended.  Then any cracks will need to be filled and leveled.

New concrete can have epoxy paint issues as well.  If you have concrete that has high ground moisture, then once the paint is installed, the ground moisture can rise up between the concrete and paint causing the paint to lift and peel.  High moisture concrete has a tendency to peel within 6 months to a year.  If you have a high moisture it is recommended you hire a professional to install.

We offer some alternatives to Epoxy Painted Floors, and our solutions are easy do it yourself installation.  No experts needed.  You can install an area in just a few hours and be using your garage or work space that same day.

Don’t waste days fixing and prepping your concrete!

4 Steps to an Organized Garage

By Haily Wilson


Most of us crave organization, but some of us don’t even know where to start. It’s a daunting task and sometimes it’s easier to close the garage, shut off the lights, and avoid looking at it. However, we all want to be able to leave our garage door open and not be afraid of someone seeing the mess. It also makes your life so much easier; With an organized garage, you can know where all your tools are! You can do that project you’ve been neglecting/have always wanted to do! You can even park your car in your garage!

That basketball that your son popped two months ago should be thrown out. It’s not going to be fixed and honestly, its taking up space. Go through everything. Sell things on craigslist that you know you’ll never use again. Throw out or recycle those items that can’t be sold. Get rid of what you don’t want. Drop off items at goodwill or salvation army.

At the same time, organize the things you do have (and want to keep) by type. Put all your tools together, put all the sports balls together, painting supplies, Christmas lights, workout equipment you haven’t used since 2003, you get the idea. Get an understanding of what you have.

Getting storage tubs is a great way to keep your things organized and you can also know where your things are.

Clean your garage and get ready for the next phase. Get rid of those spider webs and dirt.

Flooring is one of the most important decisions you can make for your garage. Many people use Epoxy, but it does not last as long as our tiles; it peels and stains. If you already have epoxy and it still looks good do anything you can to protect your epoxy from peeling and staining. One great option is to get some parking mats to keep your tires from causing damage to the floor.

Decide what flooring option is best for you. Flexi-Tile is an easy Do-It-Yourself interlocking PVC Tile that is stain resistant, affordable, and has a 25 year manufacturer warranty. This flooring will transform the way your garage looks in a short amount of time. Below is a customer’s photo of their garage after installing Flexi-Tile in Coin pattern.

Once you’ve decided on your flooring, choose storage systems. We offer Hercke Stainless Steel CabinetsHandiwall Slatwall systemsmonkey bar storageoverhead storage, and more. Some people choose to do many of these options, while some stick to one option.

Herke Cabinets are easy to customize according to your vision for your garage. Just call us and explain what you’re looking for and we can send you a design!! These cabinets can be mounted on the wall, or you can have wheels on the bottom so that you can move them easily if needed.

Now, I suggest using pinterest as a tool for your inspiration. We can help you achieve your goals, but if you want to get a vision for yourself, pinterest can often help with that. If there is something you want, but you don’t see it on our website, please talk to us about it. Most likely, we can help you to figure out how to do what you’re wanting to do!

Once you know what you’re looking for, you can request samples, request a quote, or simply order from us. You can order online or over the phone.

In order to request a sample, there is a “request sample” button on the main product page. If you have trouble finding this, please give us a call and we can take your sample request over the phone. You may request more than one sample.

Also, pay attention to our sales. For example, over this month of September 2017 our sale is on Homestyle Slate. We also have a labor day sale running all month long.

We also offer large quantity discounts, please refer to the product you wish to purchase for these discounts.

Some products take a while to be shipped out. So it is important to plan accordingly. If you need the tiles within one or two weeks, please talk to us about it and we will see what we can do. However, you generally need to have a larger time window to allow your order to be made and shipped to you.

The best thing about ordering our products is free shipping.

Installing our products couldn’t be easier. You won’t have to hire anyone to do this for you. This is something you can do on your own, or a family member or friend could do for you if needed.

You won’t need any kind of adhesives for our flooring products. Simply loose lay.

Watch this video below to see how easy it is to install Flexi-Tile. This was done here at our office.

Installing all of our products is super easy. Your garage can look Pinterest worthy for a low price and little work to do it.

How to keep pests out of your garage

Creating a tight seal on your garage door and closing off exposed cracks or holes will help keep out dirt, pest, critters, and rodents out of the garage. We want the critters to stay outside, so closing off any gaps will help to keep them out.  Additionally it will help keep any rain and water out of your garage too.

Get the clutter off the floor, items that bugs, spiders, snakes, or rodents might want to make their home.  Getting stuff off the ground with overhead storage racks, or garage cabinets.  If you keep storage containers in your garage be sure the lids are tightly sealed.

Rodent Block Garage Door Bottom Seal Material

Rodents can get into the smallest of holes, so using a RodentBlock seal on your garage door will put a seal on your door that they can’t chew though.  Xcluder’s patented fill fabric create a tough barrier that is virtually impenetrable to rodents, resulting in reduced maintenance cost and improved compliance. Compatible with our bottom seal retainers, and fits many standard door retainers.

We offer the Xcluder material by the foot, so that it can be added to other style garage door bottom seal materials. Or get it in the 3″ or 4″ Rubber Seal already attached.

  • Effective barrier against rodents and other pests
  • Installs easily and permanently
  • Non-toxic and non-corrosive
  • Approved by the USDA as an effective barrier against rodents

Xtreme Weather Guard Garage Door Threshold

If you have a gap on your garage door that is caused by uneven concrete, a garage door bottom seal may not be enough.  You may need to add a garage door threshold to get a good tight seal.  A garage door threshold is adhered to the concrete where the garage door comes down and meets the ground.  The threshold has a peak that helps fill in the gaps that a garage door bottom seal may not be able to because of uneven concrete or an unusual large gap.

We carry three brands of garage door threshold kits that include the adhesive, the threshold and instructions.

Close off side and top gaps around your garage door.  We offer several solutions to closing the gaps.  The least expensive and easiest solution is our vinyl top and side seal, it attaches to the garage door frame and rest against the edge of the garage door, closing the gaps.  Click here for more information on our side and top garage door seal.  Another solution for closing off side and top gaps is our weather brush seals.  The brush seals fit into an aluminum retainer, most side gaps are closed off with a straight retainer, and along the top of the garage door an angle retainer.  The brush comes in many styles and lengths, the most popular is the slim line brush seal.

Last, fill in cracks and gaps around your garage by stuffing the Xcluder Rodent Block into the holes or filling with a silicon.  Any side doors that lead into the garage should also be weather proofed with brush seals or bottom seals.

While roll-out garage flooring comes in different styles and colors, and is thinner, you cannot pattern mats. However, you can create patterns with the different styles and colors of interlocking-tiles that are conveniently rigid and durable. The flexible-tiles are thicker, acoustically absorb sounds, and are also a garage flooring product that you can create patterns with.

If you want to easily and affordably clean up your garage, then BLT Ribbed Garage Floor mat has been the preferred garage flooring product for many customers.
