When a homeowner says they are in the market for new flooring, what immediately comes to mind is probably options like shiny hardwood, plush carpet and stone tile—unless, of course, they’re referring to a garage floor installation. Remember, many people use their garages for more than just parking vehicles. Some use their garage as a workshop, home office, workout space or entertainment room—all types of spaces that can benefit from an updated floor.
So, what makes good garage flooring in Tyler, TX? The right option for you depends on a few factors, including your needs, how often you use the garage and your budget. Let us help you narrow down your choices! The following is a guide to four popular flooring ideas for your garage.
The majority of garage flooring options require special equipment and installation processes, but that’s not the case with paint—and you probably already have painting supplies stored away from past home projects. Hands down, the best thing about painting a garage floor is affordability. A can of paint and some paint rollers can do wonders for most garages, which almost cancels out the fact that this flooring option is somewhat labor intensive. Before starting, you have to prep the area—repair any cracks with concrete filler and clean the floor. Be sure to get durable primer and paint designed specifically for use on floors.
Another easy and affordable garage flooring option is epoxy, a type of paint with a built-in hardener. Like prepping for a paint application, you need to repair and clean the floor before applying epoxy. You may also need to etch the floor. All you do is blend the epoxy paint and hardener, then apply it to the garage floor as soon as possible (ideally within two hours). To create a strong, stain-resistant, easy-to-clean surface, scatter color chips across your freshly epoxied floor and seal with a clear coat.
One of the best garage flooring ideas is roll-out vinyl flooring. This product is easy to install. Simply unroll the material over your garage floor, cut off any excess vinyl and you’re done! However, it’s important to note that although roll-out vinyl flooring is easy to install, it’s probably not the best choice for people who want to create custom patterns, and making repairs is not so easy.
As far as simplicity and affordability go, an interlocking tile installation for garage flooring in Tyler, TX is a top choice among homeowners. These tiles are made from heavy-duty rubber or vinyl, and come in solid colors as well as patterns. They snap together to ensure stability instead of sticking directly to your garage floor. Interlocking tiles offer a way to hide cracks in concrete flooring, but they work best when installed on a level surface. If you want a garage flooring option that lets you combine multiple colors to create unique patterns and borders, then consider interlocking tiles.
