This type of flooring surface is good if you are attempting to clean up a garage floor for re-sale. Again, you can apply this type of surface yourself with relative ease. You can also touch up spots that become too dirty or stained in time. It is very important that you repair any cracks or other damage with a good sealer. If you fail to do so you will find that many surfaces will wear out quickly and tiles may come loose making it difficult to repair in the future.
PVC Interlocking Floor Tiles: Interlocking PVC flooring tiles form a great thermal, noise and dust barrier, so are the prefect choice if you are using your garage as a multi-use room such as a garage gym or play room. They are also extremely durable floor tile and so can cope with the every day wear and tear if you are looking to transform your garage into a home workshop. Although not waterproof like the porcelain floor tileor the epoxy flooring, they are very easy to separate, wipe under and re-attach should you spill anything onto the floor
Garage floor mats are economical, improve the look of the floor and are quick and easy to install. Costing less than $2 a square foot on average, they are the fastest of all three options to put down. They can be purchased online, as a roll or a complete mat, and installation is as simple as cutting them to fit the garage as needed, and then unrolling. They create a seamless look in a smaller garage or can be used only under the car in a larger garage. Manufactured with raised patterns to reduce slipping, they are not a good solution for use on unsealed cement floors, as the ground moisture seeping upwards through the pores of the concrete will be trapped under the non-porous polyvinyl of the mat, causing mold and bacteria to flourish and eroding the floor over time.
All types of garage floor coverings will improve the appearance of your garage, increase its durability and add to the value of your home.
