What Could You Create?

Back in 2009 we provided one of our ceiling “T” Racks to the magician Paul Daniels.  He wanted to store ladders on a support that hung from his garage ceiling and couldn’t quite find the right product to take the size of ladder he had.  With a little bit of DIY and a few additional materials, Paul created his ideal product from our standard “T” Rack and is now the proud owner of a ceiling rack to hold his ladders.  In fact, see for yourself how Paul did it as he posted a video on youtube showing how easy it was.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lmr334kw3gU

Or let us do the hard work.  If Paul’s idea has struck a chord with you and you would like us to create something similar, get in touch and we can talk through what you want, how much it will cost and when we can get it ready by.

Case Study – A Cleaner, Tidier Garage – Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire

Mr Azzouzz based in Gerrards Cross was looking for a solution to keep his garage cleaner, tidier and more importantly, bug free.  He had seen the Garageflex advertisement in the Gerrards Cross Exclusive magazine and were impressed with the look of the garage and the solution that was offered.

“Everything has just worked out so well, the finish is great.  The solutions that actually come with it, such as the shelving, keeps everything off the floor, keeps everything clean and tidy.  More importantly, we can still get two cars in the garage which is fantastic.  The flooring is very easy to keep clean.  Its just a great all round solution.”

Case Study – Messy to WOW in 4 days! – Weybridge, Surrey

This is our Weybridge Case Study.

Our clients wanted to get rid of all the mess on the floor, hide the boiler and spruce the garage up to make room for their gym equipment.  Once Alastair Broom arrived, he talked to the owners about exactly what they wanted to get in and how they wanted the finished garage to look.  He then took measurements, planned the space and presented it to the clients for them to see and contribute to.

Once the customer agreed, a date was scheduled for our professional team of fitters to transform the garage.  As you can see, the space is now transformed into a clean, dust-free place, perfect for some home exercise.  The team also worked around existing pipework and a boiler to ensure the client still had access should the need for servicing or repair arise but in the meantime have clean lines with everything hidden away.

Treat Your Garage to the Floor It Deserves

Let’s face it, most garage floors are pretty ugly.  Usually made from concrete and covered with stains or dust.  But that doesn’t have to be the case, Garageflex’s floor tiles give you a smart, low maintenance and tough garage floor.  All completed in a day.


Why should you consider our floor tiles?  Here are 9 fantastic reasons…

    1. Beauty – why have an ugly floor when tiles provide you with a solution to be proud of.  You can even post your photos on Pistonheads.com!
    2. Durability – our floor tiles are four times more resistant to abrasions than a concrete floor plus fluids are more easily cleaned up as they are not absorbed into the tile
    3. Low maintenance – dust is reduced requiring less cleaning
    4. Made in the UK – British made from recycled PVC
    5. Measurements – each tile measures 500x500mm and has a thickness of 7mm
    6. Quality finish – this may not be the cheapest solution but paint usually flakes off in under a year where as our floor tiles come with a 10 year guarantee
    7. Quick and easy to lay – our tiles use an interlocking system, can be laid directly onto a concrete base and a typical 1-3 car garage can be laid in under a day
    8. Safety – concrete floors can become slippery, our floor tiles provide grip for when its wet outside
    9. Weather proofing– tiles create a surface on the floor which helps insulate your garage from the cold and damp, allowing you to be confident your stored items will be safe

So whether you want checkerboard style, all one colour or something a little bit special, we have tiles to suit every garage.

Case Study – How to Give Yourself A Dream Garage – Cobham, Surrey

Retired businessman Lyndon Cole decided that he wanted to spend more time working on his cars but had one big problem: he hadn’t been able to get the cars in his triple garage for the 12 years he had lived in his house in Surrey.

Having refurbished all the key areas in his home he didn’t know what options were available in his garage until he noticed an advertisement in a lifestyle magazine for a company that carry out exactly what he was looking for: a makeover for his garage.

From the very first meeting with Garageflex, he knew he had found the answer.  Alastair Broom understood his problem and used his state of the art software to show Mr Cole exactly what the garage would look like when finished.  “They gave me a very informed, courteous and helpful presentation and when we agreed to go ahead their fitters were equal to the sales team.  They were a pleasure to have working on my garage” he added.

And how does he feel about the end result? “Absolutely delighted! We didn’t realise how much space we actually had and not only have we got everything we want in the garage, we have so much space left.  I never thought it would look so good when full – and I can even work on my E-type when time allows” says Lyndon Cole.

And the best part? He actually feels that whilst the walls and storage offer all he wants it was covering the ceiling that has made the most difference.  It has lightened the whole garage and actually makes it a real pleasure to be in.

“I would not hesitate to recommend the Garageflex system to anyone who wants a garage to compliment their home.  It has made a massive difference here and I wish I had done it years ago” concluded a satisfied Cole.

April 2013, Mr W, Wales

“Redundant toys, all my tools, garden equipment, fishing gear, two bouncy castles, three bikes – all tucked neatly away in our single garage.  And I can still get in and out of my car in there! Thanks Alastair – exactly what I needed.”
