The garage floor is one area that is often overlooked by homeowners, but it can make a major impact on the appearance and function of the garage. There are many flooring options to choose from that can be customized to meet any homeowner’s needs.
Concrete stain could be a suitable option for those with a garage floor that is not already covered with stains or other damage. This is a really customizable option as there are many colors to choose from. Also, unlike many painted floors, you do not need to worry about the stain chipping away with time. Concrete stain will allow the natural look of the floor to be seen, so this is not the best option for those with oil stains on their floors.
Epoxy is a durable coating that is applied and often etched into the floors creating a long lasting finish that is able to resist oil stains and is easily cleanable. These floors are often noticed for the tiny colored flecks embedded in the surface. Homeowners can choose between several color options for the base color and also different colored flecks that can be added during the application process.
Vinyl or Rubber
For those who have a garage floor that has sustained some minor damage such as oil stains and small cracks, a vinyl or rubber floor option may be the best choice. Vinyl flooring is available in a solid sheet, peel and stick tiles and also inter-locking tiles. This flooring has a notable textured surface and comes in a variety of colors and texture patterns. Both peel and stick tiles and inter-locking tiles are a good option as they are able to be individually removed and replaced if they sustain any damage. Vinyl and rubber tiles are also the best option for those who are looking for a truly customized appearance as they come in many colors and can be arranged in the unique patterns of a homeowner’s choosing.
With all of the great options available it may be difficult to choose just one, but the folks at Precision Overhead Garage in Orange County are available to answer questions and help to determine the best flooring option for your garage.
