There are mats available in many different sizes. This form of garage floor covering is quite simple to install as you just throw it on the floor wherever you want it. This is probably the easiest way to cover your garage floor. If you choose to paint your garage floor, make sure you purchase the right kind of paint for the job. The paint is a special epoxy that is designed to protect the floor from spills and general wear and tear.
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.

Epoxy coatings do an excellent job, be it for floors or otherwise. There are various types of epoxy coatings, each prepared for a particular type of treatment and application. Yet they all have a few common characteristics -high resistance to chemicals, extremely durable, high bond strength low porosity, and other chemicals like oils or greases cant seep through them so easily. Irrespective of its characteristics, the paint has to be applied in a professional manner to get the surprising results. The better the floor operation, the better you can expect the results. The floor should be devoid of dust, dirt or debris. Unless the floor is absolutely clean, the paint will not deliver the expected results.
