Installing Garage Floor Tiles in an Angled Garage

Angled Garage Floor Installation

When it comes to transforming spaces, few things are as versatile and visually striking as modular flooring systems like GridFlex Pro. These interlocking tiles are not only durable and easy to install, but they also offer a wide range of design possibilities. However, working with GridFlex Pro on an angled floor can present a unique set of challenges. To achieve a flawless result, it’s crucial to follow a few key steps.

Assess the Angle

Before you dive into cutting garage floor tiles, carefully measure and assess the angle of the floor. The angle will determine the complexity of the cuts and how the tiles will align. Use a protractor or angle finder to accurately determine the slope.

Plan Your Layout

Designing a layout that accommodates the angle is paramount. Start by laying out full tiles in a dry run to visualise how they will fit within the space. This step helps you anticipate where partial tiles and cut edges will be necessary.

Gather the Right Tools

Cutting garage floor tiles on an angled floor requires specialised tools to achieve clean and precise cuts. A jigsaw or circular saw with a fine-tooth blade can be used for cutting the tiles but are much harder to get a clean straight cut. All our installers use a specialised tile cutter, but these will set you back thousands. For the one time DIY’er we recommend a circular saw for straight cuts and a jigsaw for more intricate cutting. Additionally, having a straight edge, a marker, and safety equipment like gloves and eye protection is essential.

Measure and Mark

Measure the dimensions of the partial tile needed to fit the angle. Mark the tile’s surface with clear and visible lines indicating where the cut should be made. Double-check your measurements to ensure accuracy.

Cutting Technique

When making cuts on the tiles, remember that you’re working with an interlocking system. To maintain the integrity of the tiles and ensure a snug fit, cut along the ridges on the underside of the tile. This helps maintain the interlocking mechanism intact.

Practice Safety

Safety should always be a top priority. Wear safety goggles, gloves, and a dust mask if needed. Work in a well-ventilated area and avoid rushing through the cutting process to prevent accidents.

Test Fit and Adjust

After cutting a tile, test fit it into the angled space. Check how well it aligns with the neighbouring tiles and the overall design. If adjustments are necessary, trim the edges slightly until you achieve a seamless fit.

Finishing Touches

Once you’re satisfied with the fit of the cut tiles, secure them in place according to the our recommendations. This may involve connecting the tiles using the interlocking mechanism or using adhesive for added stability.
