Garage floor tiles vs epoxy
Epoxy is a popular solution for garage floors. For years it was a popular choice to hide unsightly stains and give concrete a different look. However, many find epoxy to be more costly, harder to maintain and inferior to the protection provided garage tiles. If it’s damaged and needs repair, it can mean a costly repair bill for a professional to reapply. Epoxy only comes with a 2-3 year warranty and only when applied by a professional. Backed by a lifetime limited warranty or a 7-15 year warranty, we have been known to be called upon when an epoxy floor has become unsightly from wear and use over time.
Bottom line. Epoxy doesn’t protect.
When it comes to protection, garage floor tiles vs epoxy is unfair. Epoxy is a thin layer over the concrete it can’t really protect your floor from damage. From stains to cracks in the concrete, epoxy floors can endure imperfections from many situations post-application. Our tiles rise to the challenge and exceed expectations. Our tiles are rugged, standing tall with a height up to .75″ to protect your floor from damage.

Unlike epoxy floors, our flooring tiles don’t need a multi-day layered install process, typical standard sized garages can be transformed in hours by almost anyone. With Swisstrax tiles, you’ll always have a great looking floor that is as easy to install as it is to clean. Our tiles are low maintenance, using a hose or pressure washer will keep your tiles looking great for years.
