Then, how one should avoid making their garage as a thrown away room? Epoxy Floor coatings are sturdy and long lasting solutions for any surface. Such coatings provide an ultimate protection and decorative versatility to the floor. As in comparison to the bare concrete floors, epoxy concrete floors require nominal maintenance and offer improved resistance to stains, corrosion and cracks.
Finally, garage floor tiles are an excellent option for a custom look. There are more styles and colors available than epoxy paint or floor mats, and the tiles themselves interlock for easy installation. They are more expensive and only slightly more difficult to install than floor mats, and range in price from $3 - $6 per square foot. The tiles come in wood, rubber or polyvinyl. Wooden garage floor tiles have a plastic interlocking system underneath them and provide a cushioned surface for standing, but they are noisier to walk or drive on than polyvinyl or rubber tiles. Rubber and polyvinyl garage floor tiles usually interlock themselves, without a plastic frame underneath, and are durable, withstanding up to 50,000 lbs of pressure. They absorb sound, do not damage easily, and maintain their good looks for years. All three types of garage floor tiles are porous enough to allow liquid to drain through them without allowing small pieces of hardware to fall through, making them an excellent choice for flooring if you regularly hose down your garage floor.
Aluminium Chequer Plate: Although this is not a particularly common finish for the garage floor, aluminium chequer plate flooring can be a great hi-tech looking solution if used correctly. As it comes in sheets instead of flooring tiles it is fixed to a subfloor of marine plywood / sealed mdf or applied onto a self-leveling PVA adhesive. As aluminium chequer plate flooring is made from a stronger and more durable flooring material it can look exceptionally good as a whole floor within a workshop or as a focal floor strip in the middle of the garage
In each of the examples above it is important to know the width and length of your garage. Many of the garage floors available come in various patterns and are generally rolled out from the back of the garage to the front. By doing this, the seem will run along the length of the garage. To determine the width of the rolls you will need you simply take the width of your garage and divide it by the various widths of flooring available. The most common widths of rolled garage flooring are 7.5, 8, 9 and 10. If your garage is 22 wide then the best choice would be 3 rolls of the 7.5 width flooring. That would give you the least amount of waste when you install your floor. Three rolls at 7.5 wide would cover an area 22.5 wide providing only 6 inches of waste.
