After much shopping around, I'm going to go with these unless I get a shout for something else better at the same sort of price:

https://duramat.co.uk/product/garage-flooring-pack-7x5/

That kit is for 7m x 5m and this new garage is 8.5m x 5.5m, but of course I have to take off the area of that toilet / washroom and the staircase in both rear corners, so with a couple of dozen extras added onto that pack I should have about enough I reckon. Some upvc skirting all round as well to hide the few mm expansion gap around the edges.

If anyone knows of anything else better that will cover this area for less than £600 I'm all ears, but I don't want to paint it.

I'm thinking of using something like this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CHECKER-PL...-/361479118824

Cut to size, stuck down with proper construction adhesive and sealed at all the edges. Should come in quite a lot under your budget and should be DIY.

I am aware I've been very fortunate in finding this property with such a building. I've been looking for 18 months, pretty much daily for a suitable property with even a half decent garage for my budget and all bar literally a couple of places which I've lost to another buyer (which were nothing like this one), I've come up with zip until I saw this.

That said, and without wanting to get the old 'woe is me' violin out, I've had a pretty horrific 5 or 6 years personally with family bereavements and other personal family issues (some of which are still going on), that I do think I was owed just a little good luck, and I think this new house, garage and workshop was it. I'm very much looking at this as a whole new chapter in my life and not simply a house move.

Hmmm....interesting, thanks for that, I've popped that in my 'watch list'.

I'd need 4 lengths at the 9m then, which as you say does come out cheaper than the tiles.

There should be other suppliers who offer 30 m long rolls or even more, or more locally to you, this was just one a quickly found on the Bay. It has the added advantage that nothing gets under it, unlike tiles, such as insects, dirt, leaves, etc., and if installed with a rubber skirting, can be washed down with a hosepipe.

Dirt and leaves? Oh no no no, not in my gaff! Insects maybe........I'll just get a wee pet spider or two for that

Seriously, though, I think what was steering me towards the tiles was the 12mm thickness and the 3000kg per tile resistance for jacking up on for eg.

Still, it's another option to consider I'd not thought of, so thanks again for the shout on that

If have just fitted this product at the weekend, great product but phone them first to make sure they have the stock in before you order
Looks great down but i would use a wood spreader under a jack
