How to Install Rubber Garage Flooring in 2 Easy Steps

rubber garage flooringWhether you use your garage for parking your collection of cars, or you’re using it as a storeroom, laundry room, private family gym, your DIY project room, or as a “Man Cave” where you can watch the rugby and enjoy a cold beer with your mates – the bottom line is that a garage can be used for whatever tickles your fancy, which is why rubber floors make the perfect solution for garage flooring.

Regardless of how you use your garage, you need garage flooring that can survive just about anything. Whether you’re dropping hammers, blasting loud music, playing instruments, or spilling paint, chemicals, corrosive oil, grease or radiator fluids, rubber floors can take the beating. Providing an insulated, cushioned and anti-slippery surface, not only are they unbelievably cheap, but they are also super easy to install. In fact, installing rubber garage flooring can be done in two easy steps.

  • #1 Prepare the Floors – whether your floors are damaged, concrete, asphalt, tile or wood, rubber floors always look best when laid on a clean smooth floor. Simply take a broom and use it to sweep away dust, dirt or any other foreign materials. After, use a mop to remove grease or any marks that are removable.
  • #2 Lay the Rubber Floor – if using rubber sheets, using a seam cutter or a bladed knife, roughly cut them to the required length and width, and correctly position them. To keep the rubber sheets in place and to prevent anything from getting down the seams, use adhesive or double sided tape at the bottom of each seam to join them together. If you are using interlocked rubber floor tiles, then your job is even easier. Using your fingers or a mallet, simply press the tiles together like a puzzle and they will be locked and sealed. A really great feature of rubber floors is that they are not permanent, and can be dissembled and reassembled over and over again.
