At the end of the day, theres only two major varieties of garage tiles: theyre either made of rubber, or theyre not. If you tend to work in your garage, then rubber tiles are the way to go. Youll pay more up front, but the additional resistance to damage will make it worthwhile. You might even save money on tools that would have otherwise been damaged by dropping on a harder surface. This is why painted garage floors so often have a layer of rubber garage floor mats as well. If it seems like a waste of money, wait until you drop a tool and put a big crack or dent in your nice, pretty floor.
Giving your garage floor a deep and thorough cleaning will help prepare it for its new paint job. Scrub your floor with a shop brush and soap and water to remove all the oil, grease and dirt. You must do this before beginning any steps to applying your new garage floor paint. If you have some old, deep oil stains try removing them with chemicals and abrasive scrub pads. Before you apply any paint or coating your floor must be completely free of all grime, dirt and grease. You can also spray your floor with prep cleaner and then rinsing it to better prepare and your floor for the new paint application.
All types of garage floor coverings will improve the appearance of your garage, increase its durability and add to the value of your home. A garage floor takes a lot of abuse, quickly becoming an unsightly and smelly mess that can be dangerous to work on. With so many products currently available, anyone can change their garage from an eyesore to a luxury car showroom overnight, while adding years to the life of the original cement by protecting the floor from wear and tear. There are three methods to covering the floor surface: epoxy paint, garage floor mats and garage floor tiles. All three can be installed easily and inexpensively and are simple to maintain.
