If you’re considering new flooring for your garage, you may feel overwhelmed with options. We’ll help you understand the differences so you can have the garage you’re dreaming of.
What to consider:
- Personal Style
- Rubber tiles, or snap-together tiles, are available in a wide range of colors and design styles. They are easy to clean and give your garage a softer, less industrial feel than other tile options.
- Porcelain tiles are a thicker version of ceramic tiles that you may find in your home. find inside houses. This option is also easy to clean but they are made for heavy-duty floors and are extremely durable.
- Vinyl composite tiles also come in a variety of colors and styles and, again, are easy to clean. This type of tile is often used in grocery stores because it is durable and doesn’t stain.
- Stepping down in price, we have Epoxy Paint which is the most popular option for garage door flooring among our typical consumer. It’s stain-resistant, durable, and easy to clean. However, your color choices are more limited and this flooring will have to be installed by a professional with the proper equipment.
- Simply painting the garage floor is the cheapest way to go. You have even more color choices with paint than with tile, but the floor is more likely to stain. Latex-based paint and acrylic paint are typically used, depending on the supplier.
Before you begin replacing or refinishing your garage floors, ensure that all cracks are filled properly. Always consult a flooring expert prior to any DIY work to make sure you’ve prepared the floor properly and you have the necessary equipment.
