The Most Popular Flooring Options for Your Garage

Popular Garage Flooring Options

A design element that many forget to consider when designing or updating their garage is flooring. This is commonly due to the fact that most garages have cement floors, and a lot of consumers are unaware that cement can be covered and that they have options when it comes to their garage’s flooring. If you are toying with a change, here are the most popular flooring options for your garage.

Tiles

If you have ever seen a garage with flooring in a checkerboard design, that person used tiles to create the checkerboard effect. A big benefit of using tiles is that they are easy to install. There are two kinds of tiles and both kinds provide a homeowner or a shop owner with an easy installation process. There are tiles that interlock and let out a *click* when they are in place and there are peel-and-stick tiles that simply require you to, you guessed it, peel and stick them onto the floor. They are made using either PVC material that is flexible and rubbery, durable polypropylene (which is a strong plastic composite with a high density), or peel-and-stick vinyl.

Rolls

Garage rolls are a low-maintenance option that are easy to install and offer a simple look. Maintenance is simple and merely requires hosing off or sweeping the floor on occasion. Another benefit to using garage rolls is the price. They are one of the lowest flooring options available. The downside to rolls is that you don’t have as many options for customization as you do with tiles.

Epoxy

Paint, glue, and seal; that is epoxy at work. It acts as glue, paint, and sealer. With that being said, it does not act like glue during its application. It goes on easily, like paint. Aside from its low price-point, epoxy has the option to be non-slip and gives you an array of opportunities for customization. The downside to epoxy is that it does not last as long as garage tiles or rolls. If the subfloor (i.e. the concrete flooring) experiences a crack, it is likely that your epoxy will crack as well. If that happens, you cannot just repair the crack in your epoxy. You have to address the crack in your subfloor first, which can be time-consuming.

About the Author:

Owner, Dotan Bar, has always possessed an intense passion for problem-solving and mechanics. This love led him to work for years as a sub-contractor for larger construction and re-modeling companies. As he dialed in his specialized training to garage door service, he realized that the tactics of many bigger companies were not up to his standards. His beliefs of fair pricing, community support, and overall, HONEST business practices were not upheld in many of these larger companies. He realized that the customers, who are the overall drive of business, were often being taken advantage of! Whereas many workers may just continue with the flow, Dotan broke off on his own to begin doing business he could believe in. This dedication continues to grow our satisfied customer base, daily.
