Your garage is a functional space, so it’s important to have the most durable flooring possible. Whether you use your garage as a workspace, a storage area, or simply a place to park your cars, here are four of the best flooring options available.
1. Concrete Paint
Concrete paint is one of the fastest and most economical ways to cover a garage floor. Simply clean the floors and prep them with concrete filler, and then you’re ready to prime and paint! Concrete paint is similar to the type of paint used on walls, so it can be applied with a normal paint roller.
The downside to concrete paint is that it isn’t as durable as other flooring options; you may need to touch up your paint job every few years to maintain the look of your garage floor.
Epoxy is another solution for garage floors that is similar to paint in the way it is applied. As with concrete paint, epoxy is very budget-friendly. This flooring type is also quite durable, making it an ideal choice for those who don’t want to touch up their garage floor every few years.
Epoxy can be tricky to work with, as it must be applied within a very short window of time. Once properly applied, however, an epoxy flooring job should last you for many years to come.
3. Garage Flooring Mats
Another popular solution for garage floors is vinyl roll-out flooring mats. These work similarly to vinyl locking floor tiles. Their ease of installation makes flooring mats an excellent solution for quickly hiding scrapes, scratches, stains, and any other flaws in your garage floor.
The mats also come in a variety of colors and patterns, allowing you to easily customize the look of your garage. Vinyl floor mats are simple to install, as they just need to be rolled out and trimmed to your garage floor’s dimensions.
The downside to vinyl flooring mats is that if one section becomes damaged, the entire roll will need to be replaced. This makes vinyl roll-out mats a slightly less economical solution for covering a garage floor.
4. Interlocking Floor Tiles
Interlocking floor tiles are a near-perfect solution for any garage floor remodeling project. They are available in a wide variety of materials, including PVC, rubber, and vinyl. They also come in a wide variety of colors, designs, and patterns to add a pop of personality to your garage floors.
As their name suggests, interlocking floor tiles are designed to snap together. Their design creates a waterproof seal that can withstand the most extreme garage conditions. As with vinyl roll-out mats, interlocking floor tiles are great for quickly covering dingy and stained garage floors.
Unlike flooring mats, however, interlocking floor tiles can be easily replaced one by one as they become damaged or worn. When properly applied, interlocking floor tiles will give your garage floors a gorgeous, uniform finish that remains non-slippery even when soaking wet.
The above are just a few excellent solutions for covering garage floors quickly and economically. Contact us today for more information about garage flooring options.
