Homeowners have long known how practical and versatile a garage can be for their vehicles. Choosing the right flooring is just as important as the door and the roof. In this article, we provide an overview of the most popular options in the 21st Century.

Epoxy

One of the leading favourites is floor epoxy that’s mixed with an A and B compound. This mixture is tough and applied in multiple coats. Homeowners get the option of coloured chips to create some texture. Most building companies offer up to 15 years of warranty for these tough floor coatings.

Tiles

Garage floor tiles are fast becoming popular as they are available in different colours and materials. You can opt for interlocking tiles, peel and stick, porcelain, or even vinyl composite. Some of these tiles can be installed in as little as a few hours, or you may hire a professional tiling expert to do this task. As long as you colour co-ordinate the look and design of your garage décor with the flooring, you will surely create something luxurious.

Vinyl floor mats

For an easy and convenient option, why not choose rubberised vinyl floor mats. These are available in different colours and textures. In addition, you have the added advantage of installing cushioned under-flooring that’s simple to install and you can even hide cracks. Best of all, these mats can be taken with you if you decide to move.

Floor sealer

If you like the natural look of concrete, then a floor sealer may be all that you need. A good quality sealer will prevent water or oil from penetrating, and it will also protect the floor from road grime and stains. It would be a good idea to ask a few companies for a price quote before proceeding.

Before you start shopping for the best garage flooring, you should take a few factors into consideration. The most important decision you need to make is how you plan to use the garage and the finished space. This will not only determine the type of flooring you select, but you can also choose the colour and surface finish. Keep in mind how often you will be using your garage, and whether it will be for storing your vehicle or just tools and household goods. There are many reputable companies that offer same-day flooring installation, but it is worth taking a look at some websites to determine the right design of flooring.
