Rolled garage floors are the lowest cost and easiest type of garage floor to install. These floors are simply rolled out and the seems are either overlapped or butted together. They do not need to be glued down and the seems do not need to be taped. If you are interested in securing a rolled rubber garage floor, there are seeming tapes and floor adhesives available but they are certainly not required. Rolled floors are available in widths from 7.5 to 10 feet wide and various lengths. Custom lengths are also available if you are unable to locate the right size roll for your garage. Rolled garage floors are available in 4 patterns including diamond tread, levant, coin and ribbed. Various thicknesses are also available ranging from 55 mil to 85 mil and in 6 different colors.
People who work in garages have a way of not caring too terribly much what their garage floors look like. Most guys and gals that work on cars are really only concerned with getting it clean. Of course, theres always the vaunted checkerboard pattern that you can find on just about all types of coverings. There are options, though, and you can usually find multi-colored and solid colored tiles. You might even be able to find some garage floor tiles that are as varied in colors as paint. However, if work is not in your garages future, you might want to think about staining your concrete instead. Its not only cheaper, but could very well last longer.
Once you determine the width of the rolls you need the length is easy. Purchase each of the rolls in the total length of the garage. For example, if your garage is 24 long then you will need each of your rolls to be 24. But what if the necessary length of garage flooring is not available? The better garage flooring retailers can special order the perfect length of flooring you need. This eliminates waste and generally saves you money. Because there are usually custom order cut charges, it is best to order a single long run of flooring instead of 3 separate rolls. In our 24 long garage, that would mean a total roll length of 72, (24x3).
