Are you thinking about upgrading your garage flooring? Whether you’re wanting to create an easy-to-clean surface, protect your current floor from structural problems, or simply add pizzazz to your garage space, we’ll tell you about the most popular materials used in garage flooring today.
The Best Garage Flooring For Your Garage Design Needs
If you change oil or work with paints and chemicals in your garage, you know how quickly standard concrete floors become stained. And then what about other chemicals that may be lingering? It’s important to make sure there is no danger lingering before you consider upgrading your garage floor.
Aside from taking this proactive step, as it pertains to the aesthetics aspects, let’s not forgot the safety hazards that spills and leaks can create. By installing these custom garage flooring materials on top of your existing floor, clean up becomes a breeze while eliminating health and safety concerns — and giving your garage a fresh new look!
Garage Flooring Tiles
Let’s get right to the fun stuff. Of all the garage flooring ideas, vibrant and sporty RaceDeck floor tiles are an automotive enthusiast’s dream (you can even choose from 10 garage flooring colors to match your car or favorite sports team!). Simply snap the squares together in any pattern from stripes to checkers to one solid color, and you have a durable, easy-to-clean floor that your friends and neighbors will envy. What’s great about Rackdeck garage flooring is that it fits over existing cracks and chips, saving time and labor, and it’s resistant to oil, antifreeze and all kinds of harsh chemicals — just squirt it with a hose and washes right off!
- Create a custom, unique look for your garage.
- Tiles are backed by a 15-year warranty.
- Mold and mildew resistant so you don’t have to worry about moisture problems.
If you want to give your space a smooth, classic look, consider Epoxy flooring. Oil spots, paint stains and cracks don’t stand a chance against this impact-, chemical- and abrasion-resistant material. It comes in as many garage flooring colors as you can imagine, and it adds texture to your floors so you don’t have to worry about slipping. Because we have to make sure your current concrete is free of cracks and gaps, we’ll grind the surface of your garage floor and fill any cracks, gaps and control joints.
Then we’ll pour the durable base color Epoxy which seeps into the concrete and apply the flecks of any color you choose. Finally, we’ll cover it with two coats of clear, chemical resistant and UV stable topcoat that won’t yellow or discolor. In just a few days, you’ll have a sleek, no-wax surface that you’ll love for many years to come!
- Bonds permanently with concrete for long-term sealing, keeping air and water out.
- Fade-resistant, so it’s not susceptible to sun damage.
- Easy to clean; just sweep and mop with a damp sponge.
Polyaspartic Garage Flooring
Like the idea of a high-gloss smooth floor but don’t want to be without a garage for several days? Polyaspartic coating can be applied in just a day since it only requires one coat. It can be made in various garage flooring colors, has a beautiful finish that makes any garage look great, and it’s 3 times more abrasion- and impact- resistant than Epoxy.
And don’t worry: even harsh St. Louis weather isn’t an issue with this garage flooring material. Salt chemicals in winter will wipe right off, and hot tire pick-up won’t happen even on the hottest summer day.
- Increases the value of your home.
- Pours and dries within hours.
- It doesn’t emit VOCs so there are no chemical odors.
What is the Best Garage Flooring for You?
It’s hard to say what the best flooring is overall because everyone’s needs are different. When you’re considering garage flooring ideas, you’ll need to keep the following things in mind:
- Design. Are you looking for that “WOW” factor on your garage floor? You may like the colorful, versatile options of floor tiles or you may prefer the subtle colored flecks in Epoxy.
- Time. If your car is your baby, you’ll have to decide if you can stand to keep it in the open air for several days while your garage flooring is installed. Floor tiles and Polyaspartic flooring can be installed in a day, while Epoxy takes 3 or 4 days.
- Budget. How much are you willing to spend to have a great looking garage floor, and are you willing to pay for professional installation to make sure it’s done right? We’ll give you an estimate of what you can expect to pay for each type of garage flooring.
Why Hire a Professional Garage Flooring Installer?
Whether it’s laying tiles or pouring Epoxy or Polyaspartic coating, there’s a lot to consider when it comes to doing garage flooring right. How damaged is the original concrete? What type of moisture level are we dealing with? Is the air temperature and humidity going to allow the surface to dry as quickly as it should? Our installers do this every day and know exactly which answers we need in order to get the most out of your flooring investment. And don’t forget: A professionally poured garage floor can actually increase the value of your home!
