Race Deck Flooring

I posted this in the Hotrod forum as well. Looking for feed back from those of you that have lived with Race Deck flooring for a while. Considering doing that instead of epoxy coating. The floor is 2 years old and had oil resistant sealer applied after poured. Have had epoxy coating in my old garage but it peeled after a few years. Concerned that the Race Deck surface would wear and change colors.
Thanks for your input.

Hog,

I don't have racedeck flooring in my garage, but if I had questions about it like yours, I'd be sure to check on garage journal;

I had Race Deck in my 2-car garage for basically two builds. I wouldn't say it stayed 100% brand new, but I'm very happy with how it's holding up. I drive my engine hoist on it, floor jacks, etc. No issues. Certainly no concerns with color fading. I moved some months ago, and haven't had a chance to install it yet in my new garage. So when I showed my new Roadster build at the Detroit Autorama this past February, decided to use that as the floor covering vs. renting carpet. Here's picture of my car in the display, with 2+ year old (and used) Race Deck. Looked great.

I've had racedeck in my garage for a bit over 3 years now. I echo what Paul B. says. I've abused it plenty and it has mostly stood up very well, at least to where I have no complaints and would do it again.

I think it was a couple years old in this pic.

Just to be clear, it's not like racedeck doesn't have some issues. I have several scratches and gouges and the like. But taken overall, I'm satisfied.

Same here. Couple scratches. A gouge or two where I dropped something either sharp or heavy. Either live with it as normal wear and tear, or pop out the offending tile(s) and pop in a new one. Easy to do and they're not particularly expensive.

Any issues with water or melting snow getting trapped underneath the flooring?

I've had mine about 10 years and people still compliment it. I had two part epoxy from the home store that lasted well enough. But after 14 years the paint just wore away. The extra cost to prep a previously epoxy painted floor added too much to the cost of repainting, so I did race deck. One day to install and I can take it with me when I retire and move. It was much better in the winter when I was working on my roadster. Who wants to lie on cold concrete? This past summer (9 years old) I finally washed it and put a floor shine product on it. Had only mopped with soap and water prior to that. Looks brand new.

No. It is designed to drain on the underside. Parked our DD on it with Michigan snow, salt, etc. and seemed to work OK. I would add assuming your garage floor has the normal required pitch for proper drainage. Needed to be cleaned in the spring from the residue (mainly salt) but came back looking OK.

Thanks guys for the input. Sounds like everyone was quite satisfied with the product. I guess its time to pull the trigger and get my floor done. I'm thinking it will be a great DIY project to keep me busy now that the Hotrod is kinda done for now. Just now able to enjoy the ride.
Thanks, Neal

Mine has been down for about ten years. It's seen 5 track cars, jack stands, engine hoists, lots of brake fluid / oil, etc etc etc. The floor has held up well. It doesn't look brand new, but it still looks cool. I haven't really tried scrubbing / cleaning it. It just gets swept every once in a while.

2 things I've noticed about it:

1) Plastic floors don't like hot metal splatter from MIG welders.

2) I'm in Central FL. With the garage door open and the sun beating on the leading edge of the flooring lip at garage entry, the floor can bow up a an inch or so due to expansion in a spot or 2. It's just a quirky thing that passes. When you step on it the floor goes right down with no issue. My garage faces west so mid-late afternoon in the summer is HOT in there. It's just a quirky thing that passes.

That's it. Definitely a very durable product.
