Orlene Garage Floor November 02nd, 2017 - 21:25:43
Garage floors make a nice addition to any home and they are a fantastic home improvement project. There are many types of garage flooring products available with the most popular being rolled garage flooring, sometimes called rubber garage floors. With the wide variety of textures, colors and thicknesses available, choosing the right garage floor can be a difficult task. Whatever type you choose you will need to determine how much flooring you need to purchase. If you have a rectangular or square garage, that calculation is quite simply length x width.
Epoxy coatings do an excellent job, be it for floors or otherwise. There are various types of epoxy coatings, each prepared for a particular type of treatment and application. Yet they all have a few common characteristics -high resistance to chemicals, extremely durable, high bond strength low porosity, and other chemicals like oils or greases cant seep through them so easily. Irrespective of its characteristics, the paint has to be applied in a professional manner to get the surprising results. The better the floor operation, the better you can expect the results. The floor should be devoid of dust, dirt or debris. Unless the floor is absolutely clean, the paint will not deliver the expected results.
For example, if your garage is 24 x 20, then you simply take 24 x 20 and determine that your garage is 480 square feet. If you were going to purchase rolled garage floors then your best option would be to choose a roll that is 10 feet wide and purchase the length you need for each 10 foot increment. In our example 2 rolls of garage flooring that is 10 feet wide by 24 feet long would be perfect. But what if you garage is 24 x 22? If that is the case the best option would be to purchase rolled garage flooring that is 7.5 wide and then buy 3 rolls at 24 long.
As experts in creating the perfect fitted garage we are often shocked by the condition that home owners across the UK leave their garage in. The general problem is that most people leave the garage to become a cluttered and dusty mess where everything is out of place and all those tools, sports and gardening equipment can never be found. The second biggest issue that we find is the condition of customers floors. Over years of neglect many garage floors can become damp, cracked and dusty, creating unstable and uncomfortable floors that can even create structural issue with the garage. However, with new garage flooring solutions being introduced all the while there is no reason why every garage across the UK cant have a comfortable and hard wearing floor that creates a perfect finish within the garage.
