Self-Draining Free-Flow in a Snowy Winter Garage

Messy Winter Garage Floor Problems Solved With Modular Garage Flooring

If you live in a snowy climate, you are well aware of dealing with snow, mud, and road salts. Your car dumps these on your floor daily, creating a dirty mess that gets dragged into your home.

Winter Garage Problem Solved:

The folks at RaceDeck pioneered the the modular garage flooring industry decades ago and offer a vast lineup of garage tiles for virtually every application. RaceDeck has created a garage flooring, called Free-Flow®engineered specifically for harsh winter garage and other wet environments.

Free-Flow’s patented design is a self-draining open rib and fully channeled understructure which allows for drainage and air circulation. Now when you pull your car in and nasty road slop falls from your car, you no longer come out the next day to see dirty droppings on your floor. Many RaceDeck customers refer to Free-Flow as “the self-cleaning garage floor”.

Modular Garage Flooring For Home Garage

Why Modular Garage Flooring Is The Best Option For Home Garages

With over 90 million 2+ car home garages in the U.S.A., more and more people are looking create a cool custom space in their home. One of the first decisions in customizing your garage starts with the floor. There are many flooring options on the market, including paints, epoxy, sealers, concrete stains, rubber mats, VCT tile and interlocking modular garage flooring. So, what is a homeowner’s best option?

Let’s look at what your garage floor needs to stand up to. The garage environment is very harsh with exposure to chemicals, petroleum products, hot tires, heavy equipment, concrete leaching moisture that causes mold and mildew, and many other factors to consider.

Let’s look at some of the garage flooring options:

Paints and Epoxy Coatings

There are many options on the market which require extensive concrete prep in order to apply, taking numerous days. In many cases, even with proper floor preparation, these toxic coatings can fail due to a vapor barrier breach beneath your concrete slab, causing moisture to leach up and blister your coatings. Other issues are hot tires staining and peeling up your coatings and the difficulty with trying to patch your floor in failed areas.

Rubber mats

The first noticeable issue is the odor of rubber in your garage and home. Rubber mats are not the ideal choice for garage floor as you cannot roll heavy objects across them (which causes the floor to buckle) and they trap moisture underneath, creating odor-causing mold and mildew issues.

VCT Tile

These are the inexpensive peel-and-stick tiles you see at the big box hardware stores. It is very difficult to get these to permanently stick to a garage floor, and thermal expansion can cause them to ‘pop’ out. VCT tiles also do not react well to chemicals or petroleum products, causing them to stain heavily.

Interlocking Modular Garage Flooring

This style of garage flooring was brought to the market in the 90’s by a company called RaceDeck, which today offers numerous patented styles to choose from. RaceDeck interlocking garage floors are a full-suspension modular garage flooring system that installs in just hours. The patented design makes for a tool-free, glue-free, and paint-free installation. Another great feature is RaceDeck’s full-suspension flooring that has a patented channeled understructure to allow air, moisture and liquids to flow freely, eliminating all moisture and mold issues. RaceDeck is proudly Made In The U.S.A., with quality and durability not found anywhere else.

Racedeck garage flooring is Made in the USA

Garage Flooring that’s made in the USA

Made In The USA means more than just top quality—it means not supporting the exportation of American jobs and factories to far away lands to save a few pennies. For the garage flooring companies that do manufacture their products outside of the USA, it is all about the bottom line. Rarely are product quality, the corrupt political system, poor human rights, animal rights and detrimental environmental costs to the planet considered, not to mention the cost to all of us for exporting not only jobs but an entire factory!

RaceDeck Floors are made in the USA

One company that will never go this route is RaceDeck®. RaceDeck garage floors are proudly made in the USA. RaceDeck designs, engineers, manufactures, and supplies all of their products out of their headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. For RaceDeck and their parent company SnapLock Industries quality and value are what drives them. They have been awarded ISO 9001:2008 Certification for their Quality Management System, demonstrating their uncompromising commitment to manufacturing and providing the highest quality products and services to their customers around the world.

RaceDeck is definitely the world’s leading modular garage flooring company. Great folks and a really cool product!
