There are mats available in many different sizes. This form of garage floor covering is quite simple to install as you just throw it on the floor wherever you want it. This is probably the easiest way to cover your garage floor. If you choose to paint your garage floor, make sure you purchase the right kind of paint for the job. The paint is a special epoxy that is designed to protect the floor from spills and general wear and tear.
As far as a garage floor cover is concerned, homeowners have several options. Covers are usually associated with mats. And a good number of consumers settle for floor mats simply because it is the easiest one to install. Floor mats are good to go after laying them on the floor. They are not like floor paints, which require strict preparation and long drying time. And compared to floor tiles, garage mats are the much cheaper option. Installing a garage floor mat requires an hours worth of your time at most. These mats are sold in rolls. To know how much you need, measure your garages floor area from each of the corners. Then go to the store to choose the design you liked best.
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.
For example, if your garage is 24 x 20, then you simply take 24 x 20 and determine that your garage is 480 square feet. If you were going to purchase rolled garage floors then your best option would be to choose a roll that is 10 feet wide and purchase the length you need for each 10 foot increment. In our example 2 rolls of garage flooring that is 10 feet wide by 24 feet long would be perfect. But what if you garage is 24 x 22? If that is the case the best option would be to purchase rolled garage flooring that is 7.5 wide and then buy 3 rolls at 24 long.
