Garage Floor October 11th, 2017 - 18:58:33
When it comes to garage flooring, many of you may have heard or seen the epoxy floor coverings that are available today, possibly even on TV. You see what looks like a simple process and beautiful results. What you dont see or hear is that most epoxy floor coverings fail and the process is extremely time consuming and difficult. The biggest reason the epoxy garage floors fail is adhesion, they simply dont stick well unless the surface has been properly prepped. That doesnt sound bad, right? Wrong. Here are some of the things you need to do to "prep" for an epoxy floor:
The garage is a place in the house, which is overlooked for various reasons. This is a place where you park your car, and you forget that this place needs to be looked after. The garage floor is a place which attracts all sorts of stains and dirt. When you drive in, the car tires bring with them all sorts of dirty things from outside. Usually the garage is used as a storeroom. Everything which is not needed in the house is stored here, instead of given away or sold Some of the most commonly stored stuff includes the swimming pool needs, tool boxes, brushes, brooms, paint containers, and lawnmowers, as well as many other things. Therefore the garage flooring might often be affected by leaks.
Soft tiles are a rubber like material. Actually made from PVC, soft tiles usually come in a peel and stick variety. The popular rubber garage floor tiles manufactured by Better Life Technology are manufactured at an impressive 95 mil base thickness and include a peel and stick backing that makes installation a breeze. BLT garage tiles are available in 3 colors including Midnight Black, Absolute White and Slate Grey. They are available in levant and diamond tread patterns in both a 12? and 24? tile.
You will find that tile garage flooring comes in many cool and unique styles for your viewing pleasure. You may choose a diamond pattern in many different colors like blue, red or sliver to name a few. If you enjoy something more traditional you may want to choose the classic checker board look. If you decide to apply an epoxy type garage flooring it is less expensive, but may not have the longevity that you are looking for.
