So youve figured out what garage flooring you plan to buy, and its now time to choose the specific tiles. Garage floor tiles are capable of doing just about anything as well, if not better than, every other type of flooring, which means that you should decide which qualities are the most important for your situation before beginning to choose the tiles for your garage. Is money the biggest concern? Are you installing the flooring yourself? Are tools and parts likely to impact the garage floor covering? Do you plan to show off your garage? These are all things to consider while deciding which particular tile to choose.
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.
Giving your garage floor a deep and thorough cleaning will help prepare it for its new paint job. Scrub your floor with a shop brush and soap and water to remove all the oil, grease and dirt. You must do this before beginning any steps to applying your new garage floor paint. If you have some old, deep oil stains try removing them with chemicals and abrasive scrub pads. Before you apply any paint or coating your floor must be completely free of all grime, dirt and grease. You can also spray your floor with prep cleaner and then rinsing it to better prepare and your floor for the new paint application.
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).
