Your garage flooring can be subjected to a wide variety of substances that can erode your floor including battery acid, grease and oil. Some form of protection for the garage floor is necessary, if it is to be expected to last.
If you choose not to install garage flooring then you are putting your garage floor at risk. You really should either paint the floor with epoxy resin that will coat the floor in a very durable layer or use some other method of protecting your garage floor.
If you are serious about transforming your garage into a space to be admired and not only to provide a function then floor tiles are definitely the way to go. They vary in price according to the material and design but if your garage space isn’t very large then you can tile your garage floor quite cheaply.
In my opinion it is easier to lay garage flooring than it is to lay a carpet in your home for the simple reason that garages tend to be a very simple shape. Very few have alcoves or piping to manouver around and with interlocking garage tiles it is even easier so you don’t have to worry that laying a garage floor will be beyond your abilities. It is so simple that you might even enjoy it and be very pleased with yourself for completing the job.
Garage conversions are becomming more popular than ever and because of this more manufacturers are increasing their range of garage flooring to meet the ever increasing demands of their customers. The materials have improved along with the strength and durability.
Many people are seeing the garage space as a way to either increase the amount of space available, for a growing family for example, or as a way of increasing the value of their home easily and quickly without the need to build.
There really are no limits to what you could use your garage for. Just apply a little imagination and you can transform your garage into an important part of your home that can be enjoyed by the whole family as well as increase the value of your home.
