Last month (February, 2019) we installed Motordeck Polypropylene Garage Floor Tile from The Home Depot in our two-car garage workshop. We absolutely love the upscale look the tile provides for the space and how easy it was to install.
For complete installation instructions and additional pictures, visit our How to Install Garage Floor Tile tutorial.
We intend for this article to be a long-term review of the tile that we’ll revisit in future years to see how Motordeck is holding up 1, 3, 5, and 10 years out! We hope that our initial impressions will be confirmed over the long run.
Initital Impressions – 1 Month (March, 2019)
Here’s the space after 1 month of use:
Looks: So far the tile is looking fantastic.
Sound: We installed Motordeck with a double layer of landscaping fabric between the slab and the tile. In reading several people’s posts about the tiles, we found one complaint was that the tile can sound “clicky” on the slab and that landscaping fabric tends to mitigate this. So far, so good. The double-layer of fabric has significantly muted any clicking sound from the tile.
Clean-up: We also have found the tile cleans up really nicely. If someone tracks dirt or mud in on the floor, a quick cleanup with a damp mop seems to do the trick. The tile is also very easy to vacuum. Some sites promoting other garage floor methods have noted that plastic tile can dull over time. We’ll be looking for that with these tiles.
Issues: So far, we’ve encountered no issues with the installation.
Check Back in the Future!
We’ll be updating this post in March, 2020 with additional details on how our installation is performing! If we’ve forgotten, shoot a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to update it with a few pictures!
