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.
Garage floor mats are economical, improve the look of the floor and are quick and easy to install. Costing less than $2 a square foot on average, they are the fastest of all three options to put down. They can be purchased online, as a roll or a complete mat, and installation is as simple as cutting them to fit the garage as needed, and then unrolling. They create a seamless look in a smaller garage or can be used only under the car in a larger garage. Manufactured with raised patterns to reduce slipping, they are not a good solution for use on unsealed cement floors, as the ground moisture seeping upwards through the pores of the concrete will be trapped under the non-porous polyvinyl of the mat, causing mold and bacteria to flourish and eroding the floor over time.
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.
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.
