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.
Finally, garage floor tiles are an excellent option for a custom look. There are more styles and colors available than epoxy paint or floor mats, and the tiles themselves interlock for easy installation. They are more expensive and only slightly more difficult to install than floor mats, and range in price from $3 - $6 per square foot. The tiles come in wood, rubber or polyvinyl. Wooden garage floor tiles have a plastic interlocking system underneath them and provide a cushioned surface for standing, but they are noisier to walk or drive on than polyvinyl or rubber tiles. Rubber and polyvinyl garage floor tiles usually interlock themselves, without a plastic frame underneath, and are durable, withstanding up to 50,000 lbs of pressure. They absorb sound, do not damage easily, and maintain their good looks for years. All three types of garage floor tiles are porous enough to allow liquid to drain through them without allowing small pieces of hardware to fall through, making them an excellent choice for flooring if you regularly hose down your garage floor.
A garage floor covering will also allow you to keep the floor much cleaner as a covering is easier to clean than the concrete base. If you happen to spill some gas or oil, it is a whole lot easier to clean off a covering than it is off a concrete floor. If you have always desired to have your garage floor looking like a showroom floor then that is the way to go. You will be able to impress your friends and relatives with your new garage floor. In conclusion, if you are not happy looking at your concrete floor or it is starting to look shabby then why not consider installing a garage floor covering. These covers are excellent for protecting a concrete floor and for giving your garage a clean new look.
