Garage Floor Installation
FLOOR INSTALLATION FOLLOW THESE DIY STEPS BELOW
Using a measuring tape, measure the length and width of your garage.
Once you have your measurements, design your garage floor on racedeck.com/designer
When your floor arrives, take everything out of your garage and give your existing concrete a good sweep to eliminate any dirt or dust.
When beginning your installation, line up your new floor (with room for edging to be attached) at the garage door opening, to ensure that when the garage door is closed the floor and edges are inside the garage door.
As you begin laying your tiles, make sure that the loops are all facing the same direction – the direction you want to install the floor. Lay your floor in an L shape- along the garage door opening and left wall *REMEMBER to leave proper space for expansion between your floor and any walls, poles, cabinets etc…
Reference your online design as you continue to layout your floor. Continue laying as many full modules as possible until your floor is mostly complete.
Trim tiles to fit any walls, stairs, poles etc. make sure to leave the same
¼- ½” gap for expansion. Always measure twice, cut once.
Install ramp edges.
YOU ARE ALL DONE!
You now have the coolest garage on the block!

HOW TO REPLACE & REMOVE A SINGLE GARAGE TILE
Your RaceDeck garage floor, interlocks using a patented PowerLock® system, which is one loop and one peg, which positively interlock. If you need to disengage this system, for any reason, to remove a tile from the center of the flooring, you can do so, using a simple putty knife, while following these easy steps:
- Determine the loop and lock orientation of your floor, by checking either front corner of the garage to see which way the loops and lock are facing
- Insert the putty knife, between the modules, on the lock side of the module you wish to remove
- Gently angle the putty knife to compress each lock and remove it from the loop, repeating for each lock
- Using the putty knife, lift the bottom of the module up, so you may grab and remove from the floor
