3 Garage Flooring Types to Consider

When looking at improving the concrete floor in your garage, it’s important to consider all of your options. Finding the right floor refinishing option will involve balancing your budget, your preference for how it should look, and how difficult it will be to apply. Here are three garage flooring types you may want to consider in your search:

Painted Concrete: This affordable option for your concrete floors can be applied quickly and easily, but it’s not a long-lasting solution. Paint doesn’t offer the same stain and slip-resistant as other materials and is prone to chipping and cracking.

Epoxy Floor Coating: This slip-resistant and stain-resistant moisture barrier protects your concrete from normal wear and tear while making your garage look professional and polished. An epoxy floor coating like Floorguard® also lasts, making it a long-term investment in your garage look and performance. However, it will take appropriate cleaning and preparation to apply it.

Rubber Mats: This garage flooring option, available in mats, rolls, or tiles, can be placed over unfinished concrete, painted concrete, or epoxy coated concrete. While versatile, it only offers partial protection from moisture, stains, and spills. It can also be very expensive depending on your garage size.

At Floorguard®, we recommend epoxy floor coating as the best option for your garage, not just because it’s our product, but because we know it works. It offers long-lasting protection that looks professional and really ups the value of your garage space. Learn more about our garage flooring types and see if it’s the right choice for your home.
