Garage Floor Finishing Options

We are in the middle of spring with summer quickly approaching. It may be the perfect time for you to spice up the floor of your garage! When deciding to redo your garage floor, you have a few options to choose from. First you should decide if you should cover or coat the floor of your garage. If you are unsure of the difference, we will help explain them!

Coating Your Garage Floor

When it comes to coating, using paint or epoxy are your two best options. Painting your garage floor is effective when you would simply like to cover up oil, grease or rust stains. Using paint is the easier of the two options. Applying epoxy to your garage floor is a more complex project. The process includes checking for moisture, cleaning and degreasing and creating texture on your floor for the epoxy to work properly. Epoxy will result in a tough, yet nice-looking finish.

Covering Your Garage Floor

Garage Floor with Tile Finish

If using a paint or epoxy does not sound like the solution for you, try covering your garage floor. There are products specifically made to hold up throughout everyday garage life. One of your options is to use garage floor tiles. Three common types of tiles for garage floors are flexible plastic, rigid plastic or flexible rubber.  All three are solid options that offer different benefits depending on your needs or budget. The other option available if you do not want to put tiles together is to use a roll-out garage mat. Roll-out mats are the easiest to install and come in a variety of colors or patterns.

Whether you decide to cover your garage floor or coat it, there are plenty of great options to pick from. Get started on your fresh new garage floor today!
