With the right storage systems, you can keep all your tools in the garage.
Start with interlocking PVC garage floor tiles. PVC tiles are durable and resist cracking and splitting.
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.
Room temperature must be 65 to 75 degrees F.
Thoroughly clean the floor.
Tip: PVC interlocking tiles do not require adhesive.
Put spacers around walls for 1/4-inch expansion gap. Lay first tile in left corner, smooth edges to walls.
Snap second tile onto first, pegs into loops. Use rubber mallet to tap pegs into place.
Build wall storage system with metal interlocking tracks and pegboard.
Locate wall studs, and secure upper track to stud.
Interlock lower tracks.
Snap hooks onto tracks for tools. Cover edges with end caps.
On second wall, install upper track. Insert 1/8- or 1/4-inch pegboard into groove in track. Anchor pegboard at bottom with second metal track.
Insert hooks for tools.
Put together metal shelving for big, heavy tools like saws.
Get a rolling tool chest with ball-bearing drawers for small tools and supplies.
