3 Garage Flooring Options

3 Garage Flooring OptionsWhen it comes to garage flooring systems, the coating can be just as important as the layout, design, and the fixtures that you may want to put into your garage. The flooring needs to be compatible with the purpose of your garage. Otherwise, you’ll just waste money in the end.

So before we go to flooring options, ask yourself this simple question: How do you plan on using your garage? Do you intend to use it as a heavy-duty repair shop for your muscle cars? Will it be reserved for your kid’s laboratory projects? Or maybe a showroom where you can take your guests and friends to see a display of your awards, collections, or artwork?

Then after figuring it out, it’s time to decide how much money you’re willing to invest in your garage flooring. After that, you can proceed to the planning stage. While you can go down the DIY route and finish the project yourself, hiring a professional almost always assures the best results.

There are at least five types of garage flooring options out there, but the following are the top 3 picks.

1. Polyurethane

When it comes to heavy-duty activities, polyurethane floors trump the rest of the options, and this is supported by a number of heavyweight reasons.

They don’t wear off easily either, and they’re easy to maintain. But aside from those, poly floors have a strong grip. This is one of the reasons why indoor parking lots, steep ramps, and game courts are coated with this material.

Polyurethane is not perfect, however. For a standard-size garage, you’ll end up shelling out around $500 (or even more), which is considered expensive when compared to epoxy floors. Also, polyurethane doesn’t adhere well to a concrete base. You still need to apply a primer coating such as epoxy to act as a glue between concrete and poly.

2. Epoxy

Epoxy floor coatings are the recommended option for DIYers. They’re not complicated to set up, they’re relatively cheap, they’re durable, and they give your garage a clean finish. And if you want to go fancy or unleash your creativity, you can add glitters or other forms of art pieces to make your garage look cool and unique.

The only problem associated with epoxy floors is the vapors that may have a detrimental effect on your health. Plus, you might need to invest in special kinds of tools and devices such as the following: paint rollers specifically for epoxy, safety goggles and gear, and a pair of gloves.

3. Carpet Floor tiles

Carpet floor tiles are the emerging favorites of homeowners who hate the long-hour preparation involved when other flooring options are considered. With floor tiles, you don’t need to clean or scrape your floor’s surface imperfections before installation.3 Garage Flooring Options Carpet Floor Tiles

As a matter of fact, you can put in these tiles right away. And just as they’re easy to install, they’re also easy to take off. Plus, these materials are thick enough to withstand the impact of heavy objects when they fall.

The only con related to floor tiles is the cost. You may spend $3,000 to cover your garage with these modular tiles.
