I want your garage. How does the vinyl tile floor compare to epoxy-coated?

Yes it's my garage.

Vinyl > Epoxy

I have epoxy on the floor in my front garage attached to my house. I put in down 3 years ago and the areas where my wife and I park are coming up. If I were to do it again, it would be tile up front also. Plus tile was slightly cheaper.

Only one Miata in my household. The yellow car is my track/autocross toy. It doesn't see much street use. We have other vehicles for daily driving. The black car is one that my buddy and I bought last weekend.

The radiator is sitting on the workbench. I just picked up one of the godspeed radiators and haven't installed it yet.

Just because there isn't a FMIC, don't assume NA!

Damn your garage is pimp. I want to smell your hair.

I wish before I moved all my crap into my garage I would have tiled the floor.

Where are you generally located? I'm curious as to the weather you see... ie: north and cold or south and warmer (in winter).

I want to use vinyl for my garage floor... but am worried about it pulling/shrinking in the cold months.

Definitely a nice floor in your garage. Thanks for the tip on the tile vs epoxy. I want to refinish my garage and that looks like the ticket.

I am in SE VA, Chesapeake.

We got lucky with the garage. We bought the house with it already there. The previous owner had the garage built to store his RV. I put the floor and the lift in, but the structure was already there with a 100amp service wired in.

The funny thing is that when we bought the house, the appraisal only went up $3k for the garage. The concrete slab was more than that! I am guessing it cost him close to $50k to have it built.

If it doesnt have a FMIC, its not going fast enough IMO! The exception being those WI hoes. As for the house, when its for sale, I demand dibs.

I'm looking at a house with a similar situation. I'm trying to convince the wife it isn't the garage that caught my eye
