Default Race Deck Garage Flooring

Has anyone had any experience with Race Deck and or seen it for sale for $2.00 sq. ft. or less?

Customer service is a nightmare...

one person doesn't know what the other is doing.

When speaking to sales ordering they say you will have it in 3 weeks.

Well they really mean it will be shipped with in three weeks.

then after you cancel the refuse to credit your CC making you call you CC comany to have payment revoked.

IMO get it local.

never seen this used, but a friend did their long one car garage with the epoxy stuff for around $65. Required some time to clean and prep the surface, but that cost was all the necessary items for it.

I haven't seen that used before, but I have seen the epoxy stuff, we did it to my grandparents garage, its pretty simple, you just need 2-3 days to put whatever you had on the garage floor somewhere else...turned out great too!

There are probably hundreds on epoxy type flooring versions of which I've heard that the 2 part types are considered the more favorable. As for the modular, tile type, again many different types out there of which Race Deck is considered the best then the Costco/Sam'* brand which I've heard gets shipped from the same warehouse at a much lower cost if you don't mind minimal colour selection.

At this point I want to see if there is someone out there selling the Race Deck brand for about $2.00 sq. ft. shipped.

I've recently seen graphite grey/black ceramic tile with dark grout in a garage, it is now officially what I want to do.

I don't know to many that would be daring enough to do a textured ceramic tile in a garage.

I've been to several Corvette members houses where as they have porcelin (sp), ceramic tiling and they don't like it. They say it tends to chip when using jacks and stands and is much colder in the winter then the Race Deck flooring. The grout tends to stain over time,with oil grease etc. even when you use grout sealer. They've even had cases where the tile cracked possible due to improper instalation of a crow bar etc. falling on the tile. Bottom line, they wouldn't do it again.

Ya, I can imagine that, but this guy had his garage set up like a showroom not a working garage, 2 BMW motocycles and just enough room for his Porsche, I'm sure it wasn't a space for wrenching.

Due to pricing I've decided not to go with Race Deck or even the Costco Sam'* flooring. I'm not looking for the best choice of Exopy Flooring. Keep in mind the price is always a factor.
