Roll-Out Garage Flooring vs. Snap-Together Tile


Roll-out garage flooring is a visually-appealing flooring solution that can suit just about any budget. The flooring is easy to install, doesn't require an adhesive and protects the concrete of your garage floor from stains and debris. The floor is available in a variety of styles and colors, and can be customized to fit any garage.

Another popular garage flooring solution is a snap together tile system. A snap together tile system can handle heavy loads and is installed by stepping on the tiles and interlocking the male and female tiles together. They too are available in a variety of colors, sizes and styles.

So which one is the superior option for your garage floor? When comparing a G-Floor Garage Mat from Better Life Technology to a typical snap tile system, there are a plethora of indicators that suggest roll-out garage flooring is the more prudent choice. For starters, the installation process of a G-Floor is usually much faster than snap together tile systems. The tile system forces you to interlock each tile on every side. Conversely, a G-Floor floor protector is easier to install as the mats can be laid next to each other and requires less labor. The entire process usually takes less than hour.

Additionally, many snap together tiles have a 12" to 18" seam where water, dirt, chemicals and other debris can channel through and stain the concrete floor below. On the other hand, a typical two car garage that uses a G-Floor floor protector would only have one seam. The myriad of extra seams can increase the buildup of unwanted debris below the cover's surface.

Another tangible advantage is that the G-Floor protector is comprised of flexible and durable PVC (polyvinyl chloride) material. The PVC provides more cushion than solid tile would, but is still strong and tough enough to withstand the rigors of an industrial garage. PVC has a thinner layer and expands and contracts less polypropylene.

Lastly, the G-Floor is often less expensive than a tile system. So wouldn't you rather have the floor that has more tangible benefits and is a better bang for your buck?
