So, you have a garage and you want it to last. You want to protect the floor from grease, oil and all other spills and marks that can occur in a busy garage setting. What type of garage floor covering should you consider purchasing? There are many different types of garage floor covering options for you to consider. You can choose floor tile that is available in many different types of materials. You can even paint your floor with a special type of floor paint.
Tiles are actually quite easy to install. Theres very few left on the market that dont install by simply sticking to concrete or clicking together. By far, the biggest concern when it comes to installation should be the condition of the concrete garage floor. Do you have a damaged or really badly stained floor? Youll probably want to avoid the sticky type, then, and go instead with the snap together type. Does you floor still look like new? Peel and stick tiles tend to last longer, and are often cheaper.
Aluminium Chequer Plate: Although this is not a particularly common finish for the garage floor, aluminium chequer plate flooring can be a great hi-tech looking solution if used correctly. As it comes in sheets instead of flooring tiles it is fixed to a subfloor of marine plywood / sealed mdf or applied onto a self-leveling PVA adhesive. As aluminium chequer plate flooring is made from a stronger and more durable flooring material it can look exceptionally good as a whole floor within a workshop or as a focal floor strip in the middle of the garage
