Question Garage Floor Tile

Anybody put tile on their garage floor?
Lots of options or there...
I'm thinking of doing this over epoxy.

Cheers...

I guess the question is what do you want to do in there ... Dropping heavy tools or axel stands on ceramic will lead to chips and cracks.

A lot of industrial machine rooms use ceramic tile.

have you considered industrial type mats? i built a garage a few years ago and decided on two 33'x 9' "industrial" mats from these folks. 2+ years of British car fluids and no problems so far.

Jack Olsen's garage is very impressive and practical.
I found 1sqft coin tile on floor junkie.com for $1.93/sqft
I like the fact that it is floating floor and can be removed and placed elsewhere.

Yes - i did in my last house - i used the lows 12x12" PVC/vinyl tiles in a black and white chessboard pattern with trowel on glue. It worked really well and the only issues i ever had in the 4 years after i did it was one tile pulling up due to hot tires from my 911.

it looks sharp and it was pretty easy to do. it also cleaned up well and oils did not penetrate the tiles as fast (it would get in the cracks if you left it too long though) - also you can fix the tiles individually in minutes if needed.
100% better than the epoxy paint i used previously which would pick up with any hot tire on it.

This is a fairly new style of flooring that is glued down. It is extremely durable and comes in a bunch of colors and styles. I have used it in Doctors offices as it is a compliant flooring for hazardous spills etc. It is pricy however.
