When you think of a garage floor, your mind is probably immediately filled with the image of a dingy concrete floor complete with greasy oil stains. For a long time, this was the sad truth of the matter. However, these days there are many far more attractive and practical garage flooring options out there on the market.
Concrete is still a great option, especially with all of the advances in floor coating technology, but beyond sealed or painted concrete, there is a whole new world of options for garage flooring materials that are durable, long-lasting, and resistant to the stains most commonly experienced in the garage.
At first blush, the idea of installing carpeting of any sort in a garage setting may seem a bit counterintuitive, but with recent advances in materials technology, some companies have managed to produce incredibly durable, easy to clean carpeted garage tiles. These tiles are designed to be resistant to most common stains likely to occur in a garage. They are also designed to be incredibly easy to clean in the event of a spill.
Some of the benefits of carpeted tile in the garage include its sound dampening and insulating qualities. In addition to this, a carpeted garage floor offers a padded surface that is very comfortable to stand on for extended periods of time in addition to being gentle on your joints. Carpeted garage tiles come in two designs: Peel-and-stick, and interlocking, which are both available in a variety of colors. They're the perfect way to add a splash of color to a space that is usually dominated by more muted tones.
Rubber garage flooring is another option that allows for variety in color, as well as supreme comfort without sacrificing durability. Rubber flooring comes in two forms, roll-out and interlocking tile. Both of these options are extremely viable candidates for DIY installation and offer comparable levels of performance. The major difference between them is that rollout floors have no gaps that liquids might find their way into, whereas the tiles offer a better level of moisture protection and insulation for sound and temperature, due to the space beneath the tile that results from the floating design.
This is an inexpensive and effective way to protect your garage floor. The sheet vinyl used in garage flooring is designed to be extra thick and resistant to chemical spills, physical impact and wear. Simple, affordable, reliable, and easy to self-install, sheet vinyl's ability to withstand anything your garage can through at it make it well worth consideration.
