Anyone have these garage floor tiles?

I was going to paint my garage floor but the floor is 15yrs old.its not in bad shape or stained but I thought tiles would be easiest.I worry about mold growing under them when they get wet & found these vented tiles.Pretty expensive at 3.00 each.I also saw someone used linoleum tiles.Anyone try that idea? Thanks

My only worry would be garbage falling in the holes like dirt and such, unless you don't really work in your garage. Would they hold up to pressure from objects like shelfs and cars. What about chemical and fluids can they stain them? How would you wipe up the mess? Just some thoughts.

My father had someone come and install those in his climate controlled 6 stall garage where he keeps his corvette collection. He paid something like $15k to have the entire garage done and two years later it was all ripped out and he had someone come in with an epoxy based paint. That was a couple years ago and it still looks new.
I will ask him what all of the issues were, but one of them was his girlfriend breaking her ankle when she stepped out of her Mercedes and caught the heel of her shoe on one of them.
Funny, I see they used a corvette in one of the pictures!

Good points you bring up.Id put the tiles in that arent vented because they seem stronger but Im afraid of mold growing under them when they get water trapped beneath them.

I bet the epoxy paint/process that gets used by the pros is a lot better than the stuff I could get from a store.I just dont want it coming up in a year or two.

I've had friends use that rustolium brand floor epoxy with good results. Also if you add some flakes to it then it makes it look even better.

I have been around several of those Epoxy floors in industrial applications around Plating And Chemical tanks.....man that stuff works !!!
I don't know how much it would cost to do a garage floor, but it's worth it too me if you like to be a neat freek, keep your floor nice and clean.
I have also read about the new Rustoleum product....All good so far. I think the main thing here is preparation, take your time and do it right.....
Good luck what ever ya do..... "BH"
