What Type of Floor Should I Choose for My New Garage?

If you are about to start the process of having a new garage built, it is essential that you consider the type of floor that will be placed within the structure. In this guide, we will outline the top options that are available. At the base of your floor is concrete. That is a given.

Each garage must have a concrete floor that is capable of withstanding the weights and activities that it will be exposed to on a regular basis. So, the true question is what type of flooring will be placed over the standard concrete floor in your new garage? 

Penetrating Sealants

Your first option is a penetrating sealant that is designed for concrete. This is a fluid system that is poured over the concrete. It has no aesthetic value. It is more like a standard protective measure for the concrete.

If you are in the market for an inexpensive solution, this is the way to go. While it won’t make the flooring any more attractive, it will protect the concrete from stains, environmental factors, moisture, and more. The downside is, it will have to be redone every few years or so. 

Floor Mats

The next option you have is floor mats. You may choose from decorative mats and containment mats. The best option is the decorative mats that may be installed wall-to-wall. You should go with black or else you will be unhappy when stains develop – and they will.

You will need to consider the fact that the floor will contract and expand and this may result in ripples. Containment mats simply keep debris from your car from staining up sections of the garage floor. 

Garage Floor Coatings 

Garage floor coatings are specially-designed epoxy or polyuria films that may be decorative in nature. Not only are these available in safe anti-slip options, the coating improves performance and appearance. Best of all, floor coatings are easy to clean and maintain.

If you want your garage to be both beautiful and functional, this is the way to go. This type of flooring is seamless and resistant to stains. You may choose from colors, the addition of chips, and many more options when you elect to go with a garage floor coating.
