Garage Floor November 02nd, 2017 - 22:32:45
Many times, the fact that garage floor tile can be purchased in only the quantity needed is one of its biggest draws. However, as tile is much more pricey than just about any garage floor paint, you will probably only be able to cover a part of it. If you cannot afford to spend a ton of money, be sure that you choose tiles which you can add to later on. Make sure you stick to known names, and do some shopping around to assure that youll be able to find smaller sets down the road.
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.
Once you determine the width of the rolls you need the length is easy. Purchase each of the rolls in the total length of the garage. For example, if your garage is 24 long then you will need each of your rolls to be 24. But what if the necessary length of garage flooring is not available? The better garage flooring retailers can special order the perfect length of flooring you need. This eliminates waste and generally saves you money. Because there are usually custom order cut charges, it is best to order a single long run of flooring instead of 3 separate rolls. In our 24 long garage, that would mean a total roll length of 72, (24x3).
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.
