So youve figured out what garage flooring you plan to buy, and its now time to choose the specific tiles. Garage floor tiles are capable of doing just about anything as well, if not better than, every other type of flooring, which means that you should decide which qualities are the most important for your situation before beginning to choose the tiles for your garage. Is money the biggest concern? Are you installing the flooring yourself? Are tools and parts likely to impact the garage floor covering? Do you plan to show off your garage? These are all things to consider while deciding which particular tile to choose.
When it comes to garage flooring, many of you may have heard or seen the epoxy floor coverings that are available today, possibly even on TV. You see what looks like a simple process and beautiful results. What you dont see or hear is that most epoxy floor coverings fail and the process is extremely time consuming and difficult. The biggest reason the epoxy garage floors fail is adhesion, they simply dont stick well unless the surface has been properly prepped. That doesnt sound bad, right? Wrong. Here are some of the things you need to do to "prep" for an epoxy floor:
For example, if your garage is 24 x 20, then you simply take 24 x 20 and determine that your garage is 480 square feet. If you were going to purchase rolled garage floors then your best option would be to choose a roll that is 10 feet wide and purchase the length you need for each 10 foot increment. In our example 2 rolls of garage flooring that is 10 feet wide by 24 feet long would be perfect. But what if you garage is 24 x 22? If that is the case the best option would be to purchase rolled garage flooring that is 7.5 wide and then buy 3 rolls at 24 long.
