It does not allow spills to the concrete.
The great thing is that it is a large roll,, so few seams, and from what
I could tell Flexible and laid flat.

Allow your garage to be as attractive and inviting as the rest of your home. The VersaRoll PVC flooring installs in your garage in minutes. The signature tread plate (diamond plate) pattern provides a superior finish and look which can be cut to fit your exact garage dimensions. The tough roll floor is non-porous and can withstand common garage chemicals and changes in temperature. Cleaning the floor is easily done with a spray from the hose or sweeping.

I don't know if it was mentioned, but lighting is extremely important.

Below is my Lab that I made 14 years ago. To the left you can see the Rubber flooring.

In here I build small precise prototypes, so many small items that need to be shelved/boxed on my pegboard for quick access. To the right you can see thin drawers. I should have bought the bench/shop type instead.

If you buy a Tool drawer chest, don't go cheep. I bought a large, barely used one last year and I want another

Lastly, if you have a wife, finish the garage quickly before she plans on renovating the bathroom, or building a new kitchen

Lighting is all important and I strongly suggest the "fun" colors you use to paint in there be light and reflective to take advantage of any future light improvement plans. You may not have the same projects that I do but great lighting makes a world of difference in enjoying any project. One of the many reasons I stopped detailing cars for extra income was having lousy lighting in the garage for old tired eyes. Had I cured that problem as soon as we moved here it would have helped me immensely in my work....the lights, not the eyes.

agree; hence my chagrin at the single bulb and outlet

Your new two-car garage has only a single bulb and outlet? The builder and contractor cut some corners there! But it should be easy to add more outlets and illumination. A competent electrician would be able to do that rather quickly and without it being expensive especially if there is no drywall where the wiring would be routed. And they should know the electrical building codes.
