3 Different Types of Garage Floor

3 Different Types of Garage Floor
  • Opening Intro -

    When it comes to thinking about what material your garage floor should be made from, it may depend on the extent to which you use your garage.

    Whether it is simply to keep your vehicle in, somewhere that you work, or somewhere you plan to work on vehicles.


An individual or family may want it aesthetically pleasing, whereas a mechanic will be looking for it to be a practical surface, too. The epoxy floor coating for garage will, for example, satisfy both these requirements.

This article will explore 3 different kinds of surfaces and their benefits.

Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring represents the perfect choice for a surface that is long-lasting and looks good. It can be laid on top of concrete to increase the garage floor’s durability. This tough material is easily cleaned as far as maintenance goes.

Epoxy is available in many colors to please the eye. To use, you just need to make sure that no dampness can be observed on your existing floor and that it is resistant to any moisture. Other than that, you are good to go.

Epoxy, as a material, is ideal for commercial or industrial premises because of its high quality and durable surface. This superior surface is resistant to sudden impacts from many things that might be dropped or spilled on it.

Neither incident causing damage to the floor’s surface. Furthermore, epoxy flooring reduces damage to machinery and will bear the weight of it.

This seamless surface is much more forgiving than alternative types of flooring that machinery might travel over. It is resistant to chemicals, withstanding exposure to them whether momentarily or continued, such as a mechanic regularly working on the surface.

The epoxy coating is resistant to high temperatures, such as that caused by fire, so excellent from a safety point of view. Visually, epoxy floorings look attractive and will bring an old and tired floor to life, causing it to gleam.

As well as being available in different colors, there are also different textures to choose from. A further benefit is that epoxy flooring is easy and quick to apply, meaning that a business will not have to shut down for a long period of time and disrupt its profits or activities to have laid.

From a cleaning point of view, epoxy does not collect the kind of dirt or bacteria that the crevices of other kinds of surfaces attract, because it exists as a completely smooth and sealed surface. A simple wash over with soapy water will have it looking like new again.

For those concerned with the environment, the manufacturing process involved in producing an epoxy coating is minimal and the materials used free of harmful substances. While cleaning it, no harsh chemicals are required, either.

In terms of cost, epoxy floors are cost-efficient because of not needing to be replaced for many years.

Concrete Flooring

As a flooring, concrete is hard and resilient, so will bear the result of falling items without significant damage being caused, although it is not as hard wearing as epoxy flooring in protecting itself from damage. A polished concrete surface has the potential to look attractive, and as with an epoxy coating, it is stain-resistant and easy to clean.

Rubber Tile Flooring

The benefit of rubber tile flooring is that it is easy to install, but then so are many other surfaces. In their favor, too, rubber tiles are flexible and available in interlocking patterns which provide additional stability and strength to floors.

Generally, their dimensions will be either 12 x 12 or 24 x 24 inches. They are pleasingly priced, depending on how many you require. They require little maintenance to keep clean and are easily and individually replaced. The downside to them is that they are not as hard wearing as the above types of material for a more permanent flooring solution.

In conclusion, apologies for spending so long on epoxy flooring, but we do think it is a wonderful material for families wanting a pleasing sight, and for commercial situations where the surface is required to be extremely hard wearing.
