Global Garage Flooring & Design Expands Franchise Opportunities

North Bend, WA – May 08, 2013

Global Garage Flooring & Design franchises offer professional grade garage makeovers to residential and commercial markets. Services include resurfacing/coating the garage floor, and installation of custom fabricated cabinets and storage systems. The entire process takes only one day for the floor, and a second day for the cabinets. It transforms a cluttered, dirty garage, into a stunning display of cleanliness and organization.

GG franchisees will have numerous advantages to leverage in their protected territories. The crown jewel of the offering is a proprietary Polyaspartic coating that is far superior to the epoxy systems which is the industry standard. Only available to GG franchisees, the coating is three times harder, and three times more chemically resistant, than epoxy, plus it installs in one day, compared to 3 days for epoxy. It can also be applied in the coldest of temperatures, allowing franchisees to sell year round, whereas epoxy solutions require temperatures above 55° F, therefore limit opportunities in cooler climates.

Jensen assembled the best elements from each of the franchises that he worked with over the past 25 years to create a package that is geared for success. Extensive training, coaching, counseling and communications are the hallmark of the GG franchise system. The equipment, office, marketing and networking are all in place prior to training. Training includes one week working in an existing GG business, and one week in territory with a GG representative. The franchisor has extensive ongoing training including, coaching, meetings, visits, reviews, newsletters, etc.

GG franchises are a proven business model that comes with protected territories. The business is scalable, one trailer, one crew, at a time. Total cash investment is from $100,000, which includes equipment, inventory, a large protected territory, training, franchise fee, and working capital.

Growing awareness of “the great garage” makes 2013 a great year to be getting into this business. Global Garage grew during the down turn in the economy. Now that the real estate market is beginning to come to life, people are looking for ways to add value to their home, either to increase the sale value, or to make it more livable for themselves. The garage is the largest room in the house – the entrance, and contains the stuff people play with. GG simply makes it better.

Lance Jensen, CEO, commented. “I’ve been a franchise owner, broker, developer and master franchisee. I was looking for a company that had all the elements for a successful franchise program, and Global Garage fit the bill perfectly! The products and systems are great, and we own the proprietary rights to a far superior system that improves quality and cuts a three to four-day process down to one or two. Now we have all the franchisee support systems in place, and are ready to roll!”

He went on to explain, “GG is looking for people who want to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. The right individual will thrive in a fast paced environment, like people, and have a “finder” mentality. They will be seeking a high profit venture that can support an active lifestyle. The right person will like the sales and marketing side of business. They will also be oriented towards managing, organizing and delegating rather than to doing hands-on work.”

Rigid Garage Floor Tiles

When it comes to garage flooring tiles, there are generally two types available.  The first is the soft variety which is usually peel and stick tiles.  The second variety is the rigid type and these tiles use a locking mechanism to join them together.  In this article we are going to focus on the latter type.

Most garage floors are made of concrete which is obviously cold and hard.  Garage floor coverings, including tiles, have made those cold hard places a little more enjoyable.  Rigid garage floor tiles offer many benefits including:

  • Engineered to withstand the toughest mechanical environments and is not affected by petroleum products and most automotive chemicals.
  • Installs in hours, not days – you simply snap your floor together over any solid swept surface. No glues, no paints, NO VAPOROUS TOXIC FUMES.
  • Numerous styles and colors to chose from. Create your own custom design.
  • Full-Suspension Flooring provides great anti-fatigue and insulation barrier between you and the cold, hard floor.
  • Built to handle extreme roll capacities. Will support floor jacks, tool boxes and jack stands.
  • Edging easily snaps into the garage floor to create a smooth transition.
  • Made in the USA with a 15 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Let’s look at some of those benefits in more detail.  First, they are engineered to withstand chemicals that could destroy the tile.  This is not true of all garage floor tiles on the market today.  RaceDeck is the leading garage tile manufacturer and they are the only product we trust to provide years of use and enjoyment.  They also back up their claims with an amazing 15 year warranty.

Garage Floor Tiles – What type is best for me?

There are many types of garage floor tiles available on the market today generally divided into two categories, rigid and soft.

Garage Floor Tiles

Garage Floor Tiles

Soft garage floor tiles are generally made from PVC vinyl and are quite durable.  Much thinner than the rigid garage floor tiles, soft garage floor tiles usually are of the peel and stick variety.  Peel and stick tiles have an adhesive applied to the back of the tile during the manufacturing process and a plastic backing is put over the adhesive.  To install this tile, simply peel off the backing and apply the tile to the floor.

The advantages to a soft garage tile floor is that the height of the tile is only about the thickness of a nickel, no big raises in the floor to worry about.  Another major advantage to this type of garage floor tile is that spills and leaks are less likely to penetrate the floor tile meaning they are easier to clean up.  The biggest disadvantage to soft peel and stick garage floor tiles is that they cannot be removed.  If you are considering moving and want to take your garage floor tiles, you may be interested in the rigid garage floor tile.

Rigid garage floor tiles are usually made from high impact polypropylene and are either perforated or solid.  Many companies manufacture rigid garage floor tiles and they are readily available online.  Like many other products we may buy, rigid garage floor tiles vary in quality so do your research to find the best garage floor tile for your budget.  Some of the cheap garage floor tiles can warp or break.

Perforated garage floor tiles allow liquids and spills to drain through the floor onto the concrete garage floor below it.  The benefits to this type of flooring is that the garage floor surface remains dry and safe.  But there is a major disadvantage to this type of garage floor too, spills and liquids that fall below the floor are difficult to clean.  Water spills can become moldy over time so care must be taken to be sure the area is properly ventilated when using this type of garage floor.

Solid, rigid garage floor tiles are basically the same tile as the perforated, less all the drain holes.  Solid tiles are heavier than the perforated types.  The solid garage floor tiles do not allow liquids to drain quite as easily as the perforated garage floor tiles.  However, spills should be promptly cleaned up to prevent liquids from draining between the cracks in the tile to the concrete floor below.  As with the perforated garage floor tile, liquids that drain below the floor’s surface are extremely difficult to clean.

Rigid garage floor tiles are usually installed using an interlocking mechanism on two sides of the tile.  This allows the tiles to be secured to each other easily and solidly.  Many manufacturers also make an edging that can be installed around the perimeter of the garage to give it a clean, finished look.

Whatever garage floor tile you are interested in purchasing, be sure to do your homework.  Specifically with the rigid garage floor tile, quality can be in issue with the cheaper types.  Weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each type of garage floor tile to your application to determine which floor is best for you.
