Garage Floor October 16th, 2017 - 19:36:32
The concrete garage floor is hard to clean, as it does absorb the dirty stuff. The flooring options available in the market do provide some relief, as this type of flooring needs conventional cleaning. Usually it is seen that the floor of the house gets attention, in particular. The garage is being used more than before, as a working area. For performing certain jobs in the house and around the garden etc., the garage is used as a station of working.
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
The matching color can add to the decor of the house. The colors are oil resistant, therefore can protect the floor. The garage and its floor can be painted to shield the floor, and safeguard it from spillage. The paint can also handle rolling weight, like of car etc. Garage floor tiles can be used. The interlocking tiles provide sturdiness to the floor. These do not need high maintenance. The tiles are durable and long lasting, as they are made up of PVC. This material is very tough and strong. The tiles used for floor provide a better surface for working. They act as insulation and protect from dampness. Garage can be used as a store. There are companies which design the garage, in such a way that lots of stuff can be stored. They provide cabinets, shelves etc. Which can accommodate several items on the wall, thereby saving the floor from getting damaged. These can protect garage floor from the impact of items stored.
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.
