Choosing the Right Flooring for Your Garage

Your garage floor gets a lot of wear. It is host to spills, stains, breaks –you name it. Too often this wear and tear goes uncared for. Lucky for you we’ve put together a list of a few different ways you can protect your garage floor.

Covering vs Coating

If your garage floor is in pristine condition, or at least good condition, then either will work. But if you’ve got one of those garage floors well loved and worn from years and years of use, a covering is the best choice because it covers and conceals these damages. If you are willing to put in the work to get your floor prepped and ready for a coating, the beautiful aftershine of a coating might just be worth it.

Coatings

There are several different kinds of coatings to choose from. If you’ve decided to go this route, epoxy might be a good choice for you. It’s cheap and a little goes a long ways. The main downsides of this coating is that you can’t drive on it for a good while after setting it.

If you really want to get the whole works done on your garage, throw a concrete stain on your garage floor. This kind of coat doesn’t protect your garage floor but it does give it a nice decorative touch. It is perfect for a lesser travelled garage floor.

Use a sealer on the garage floor for both decoration and durability. The bonus to using sealer is that garage it is easy to apply. Grab your roller of the shelf and get to work. Garage sealant also comes pretty cheap.

Garage Coverings

Have a stained, damaged or cracked garage and you want to cover it up? Coverings will be your best friend in this situation. But be warned, you’re going to have to pay for the extra convenience that a garage covering provides.

Rollout flooring is as simple as laying matts. They can be very durable but won’t withstand everything. Some damages to watch out for include burning-hot tires and glass cuts. They can also be vulnerable to the weather.

Interlocking tiles

The last garage floor covering that we’ll share is the interlocking tile mat. These are slip resistant, flexi-plastic tiles that you can easily install in your garage to provide it with covering. Though they are also vulnerable to things like stains and damages, the bonus to using tiles instead of roll mats is that they are very easy to replace.

The kind of covering or coating you will choose will depend on the way your garage is commonly used. Of course, there are even more choices to choose from if you are planning a different kind of garage. Making an art studio or turning your garage into an extra living space? Carpet or tile might make for a nice touch for your custom garage.
