Garage Floor November 02nd, 2017 - 21:56:40
Almost everyone that lives in a house has a garage. But not everyone cares about their garage. And lets be honest, most of the garages dont look too well. Some people really dont care because they think that the garage is only for storage or for the car and that no one can see how the garage looks. However, I am sure that people who spend a lot of time in their garage, usually end up spending a lot of time working on their vehicle, and they do care a lot about how their garage looks.
Garage floors have been a growing home improvement project in many houses today. They add comfort, warmth, safety and beauty to a normally cold, hard place. The most popular types of floors are rolled (sometimes call rubber garage floors) and garage floor tile. When it comes to garage tiles there are many types to chose from including hard and soft. The hard garage tiles are floating tiles and they are either perforated to allow water and spills to drain below them or solid to somewhat keep spills above the tile. They usually have some kind of an attaching system that allows them to snap together and stay in place. There are various types of plastic tiles and the quality of these tiles will vary greatly. Always be sure to know the type of flooring you are buying because when it comes to plastic garage tiles, price is not nearly as important as quality. Cheap garage floor tiles can warp and break under heavy loads.
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.
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.
