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.
A garage floor covering will also allow you to keep the floor much cleaner as a covering is easier to clean than the concrete base. If you happen to spill some gas or oil, it is a whole lot easier to clean off a covering than it is off a concrete floor. If you have always desired to have your garage floor looking like a showroom floor then that is the way to go. You will be able to impress your friends and relatives with your new garage floor. In conclusion, if you are not happy looking at your concrete floor or it is starting to look shabby then why not consider installing a garage floor covering. These covers are excellent for protecting a concrete floor and for giving your garage a clean new look.
Aluminium Chequer Plate: Although this is not a particularly common finish for the garage floor, aluminium chequer plate flooring can be a great hi-tech looking solution if used correctly. As it comes in sheets instead of flooring tiles it is fixed to a subfloor of marine plywood / sealed mdf or applied onto a self-leveling PVA adhesive. As aluminium chequer plate flooring is made from a stronger and more durable flooring material it can look exceptionally good as a whole floor within a workshop or as a focal floor strip in the middle of the garage
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.
