A good garage floor covering can save you money in the end because it will be protecting your concrete. It will also act as a safety feature in preventing people from slipping on the wet or slippery concrete. If you choose tile as your garage floor covering, you will have many choices in patterns and colors to choose. An interlocking floor tile is quite easy to install and does not take a lot of time to install either. It can also be used in a basement or workshop as it is not limited to use in the garage.
There are more types of garage floor coatings. Some of them are: epoxy garage floor coating, vinyl garage floor coating, interlocking garage floor coating, roll over floor coating and so on. The most common and one of the best garage floor coatings is the epoxy garage floor coating. It isnt very easy to install, you have to watch out for a few things before you install it, but if you do it right it will last for a very long time and it will protect the concrete very well. Moreover, it will give your garage a gorgeous look. So, if you want your garage to look good, the first thing to do is install a garage floor coating.
So why wasting your time scrubbing, cleaning or refinishing your garage when epoxy coating can protect your garage against spilling and chipping of any variety? It is the most economical, aesthetically and pleasing way to enhance the beauty of a plain gray concrete garage floor doing wonders for the appeal of your garage. Theres practically no reason that your garage should remain a dingy and unpleasant place. A seamless floor coating like an epoxy minimizes the need to constantly making repairs and clean up the floor. In lieu of a total remodeling, an epoxy coating if applied to your concrete floor spruces up your old ugly looking garage hiding minor imperfections and increases resiliency to stains.
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.
