How much does it cost to install garage floor tiles? The contractor cost to install garage floor tiles is $993 vs. doing it yourself for $730 and saving 26 percent.

Remember Tim, the tool guy? Well, we’re sure that, with all the time he spent in his garage, he would just love to redecorate it with floor and drain tiles designed specifically for a garage. The 12-inch by 12-inch tiles, which are packaged 10 per box, come in a variety of solid colors or with open grates for flow-through.

They can be installed easily with a simple overlap and tap process, so there’s no adhesive needed. The tiles are made from a high-impact polypropylene, so they’re a hard durable surface. It’s a good bet most people would spend much more time cleaning out the garage than actually installing the tiles.

To install the garage and drain tiles in an 18- by 22-foot two-car garage, a handyman service will charge $993. You can buy the 35 boxes of tiles needed to cover the floor for $730 and do it yourself, saving 26 percent. When the floor is empty and everything is removed, wash the floor with a mild soap and let it dry. If there are any surface cracks larger than a half-inch wide, patch them with a floor resurfacing material and allow it to dry.

Figure it will probably take more time to clean out and empty the garage than to install the tiles. Consider having a garage sale first, since there’s no better time to get rid of everything you didn’t know you had in there.
