Tiled garage floors are very popular, particularly in Europe and across the United States. They are also popular in more up-market homes around Montreal. If you want to lift the value of your home, it could be well worth tiling your garage floor. There are a lot of benefits to tiling a garage floor, not just the aesthetic look.
Granite tiles are a good choice for garage floors as they deliver a finish that is well suited to that environment. Granite is tough, long wearing, has water resistance properties, and has some natural stain resistance properties as well. Slate tiles are also a popular choice, however, they may not be your best choice if you also use your garage as a workshop.
One of the best tiles for a garage is ceramic or porcelain. They offer the best water and stain resistance and are generally tough enough to handle most activities. Industrial ceramic and porcelain tiles are available, and these will handle the punishment that a garage/workshop dishes out.
