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:
Garage floor covers come in many textures - coin pattern, ribbed, diamond, Levant, and clear. Choose according to the actual use of your garage. The ribbed texture is ideal for game room garage because this type of garage got loads of traffic. The friction-free design that these floor mats have is perfect for moving players. The diamond texture is made for garages used primarily for storing vehicles. The garage mats with coin pattern is perfect for people who use the garage for hobbies such as carpentry. For other garage uses, either the Levant or the clear pattern should work.
Garage floors make a nice addition to any home and they are a fantastic home improvement project. There are many types of garage flooring products available with the most popular being rolled garage flooring, sometimes called rubber garage floors. With the wide variety of textures, colors and thicknesses available, choosing the right garage floor can be a difficult task. Whatever type you choose you will need to determine how much flooring you need to purchase. If you have a rectangular or square garage, that calculation is quite simply length x width.
