New project. Opinions?

Ok. I finally got the house with a 3 car garage
House is new, so I have a clean slate

Plans are for a new garage floor to start with and then progres to a storage lift in a year or so

The floors I'm looking at are RaceDeck
Race deck | Garage flooring |Race deck garage flooring | Race Deck.com

And TechFloor
Welcome to TechFloor; A MacNeil Automotive Product | TechFloor

I have talked to Ron from the forums and he speakes highly of racedeck.
I recieved samples of both floors and I really like the techfloor due to its more rubberized feel.
Has anyone used the Techfloor?

Any other advice is welcome

The Garage Journal is a great place to ask for opinions on this stuff.
The Race Deck guy posts on there often. FWIW.

And either type of flooring would not be conducive to rolling heavy engine cranes and toolboxes around.
I suggest epoxy if you're going to wrench.

Hmm...

Nice house Andy, now the fun begins. I painted my walls gloss white, it cleans up easy and is bright as well.

Wow! that looks fantastic. I love the way the floor complements the color of the car. I wish that I had that much room around my cars. Nice Mini, my wife has a Countryman in Royal Gray with a white roof. It looks like you also installed the floor correctly, from the front to the back, unlike me. And you have plenty of room for a lift. Good job, now the fun begins. It is cool that you dog also is in the same color range.

Looks awesome! Which cabinets are those?



Back in 2005 I did RaceDeck, epoxy floor and commercial slatwall on every wall.

I think yours looks much better!

Love the slatwall and the Lotus sign.

I purchased these metal cabinets from wayfair
NewAge Products RTA Series 10pc Cabinet Set | Wayfair

Reasonable price and pretty good duty

The parade of cars continues. My wife told me to grow up! I might not be able to "grow Up" but my garage sure can . Time for another lift

Anybody have experience with these flexible PVC tiles? They're quiet to walk on and also easy to install.
