Garage Flooring Options
Whether you're building a custom home from the ground up or would like to update the current flooring in your garage, there are many types of flooring that you can choose from. Each flooring material alters the appearance of your garage. The main types of flooring options available to you include everything from epoxy and vinyl to stone and rubber tile. The following guide should give you all the information you need to determine which flooring option is right for your garage and home.
Epoxy is a type of polymer compound that can provide your garage with a beautiful appearance. This option is particularly beneficial if your current garage has an existing flooring that you don't want to tear up. Epoxy is a long-lasting and durable coating that can last for upwards of 10-20 years if properly maintained. While you can apply epoxy to practically any type of flooring, it works best with concrete and stone flooring materials.
Vinyl tiles are affordable flooring materials that are ideal for garages that don't have a considerable amount of foot traffic. When vinyl tiles are coated with urethane, the tiles become comfortable and flexible, which makes them a great option for practically any garage.
If you want your garage floor to have a natural and beautiful appearance, stone is a fantastic flooring option. The most popular types of stone for garage flooring include flagstone, sandstone, and graphite. Keep in mind, however, that stone floors are costly and can be cold during the winter months.
Rubber tiles are a more flexible flooring material that's easy to install and comes in a variety of patterns. In most cases, rubber tiles can be selected as 12x12-inch or 24x24-inch tiles. It's possible for you to install rubber tiles on nearly every type of sub-flooring, which includes concrete floors.
Polished concrete is the ideal flooring option for many homeowners. If you want durable flooring that will stand up well to high amounts of foot traffic, polished concrete is the way to go. These floors are exceedingly resilient and can be surprisingly affordable. Because the material is polished, it can provide your garage with a sleek and elegant appearance.
Installing new flooring materials in your garage is a great way to enhance its appearance and even improve the value of your home. The five flooring options discussed above are all considerably different from one another while also providing distinct benefits. With these benefits in mind, you can choose a flooring option that matches the style and appearance of the rest of your home.
