PVC garage floor tiles
paint roller (optional)
Interlocking, non-skid PVC garage floor tiles come in many colors and textures.
Tiles can easily be laid on top of existing floor. Design a floor pattern using different colors and/or textures.
Tile must be conditioned to space for at least 24 hours prior to installation, and the room temperature must be 65 to 75 degrees F.
Start by thoroughly cleaning floor.
Mark center points of walls and snap two chalk lines through center of room, dividing room into quadrants.
PVC interlocking tiles do not require adhesive.
Begin at center of floor.
Lay one tile in corner of each quadrant to create central square.
Use rubber mallet to tap interlocks into place.
Expand square by snapping additional tiles around perimeter.
At walls, trim partial tiles with a utility knife.
Leave expansion gap around walls of 1/4 inch.
Tip: If floor is exposed to wet conditions, apply special coating.
