Remodeling your Garage Flooring for Hassle-free Maintenance

Rarely, if ever, you pay much attention to your garage flooring and find time to clean the garage. It is important that you give some attention to the garage flooring because it is constantly exposed to damage due to oil spills, salt deposition, dirt and grime accumulation, etc.

Remodeling your garage floor will not only give it a nice look but also make it safe from further damage. The remodeling project may vary from simple floor coatings to changing your entire floor. Here are a few suggestions on how you can remodel your garage flooring.

Resolving existing issues

At the outset, you should empty your garage and look for cracks in the flooring, oil spills, etc. Your floor may be made of bricks or concrete or even wood! Replacing them completely for small repairs would be time consuming and may cost you a fortune.
Hiring a remodeling specialist would be a wise thing to do and the remodeled floor would last for years and save you a lot of money. Your contractor will take care of the entire remodeling process and make sure that the dry walls and the electrical outlets aren’t damaged while tending the floor.

Coating and covering after cleaning

Floor coatings provide extra stability and life to the floor. After cleaning the floor, coating them with sealers or paints or covering them with mats will go a long way in preserving your garage floor. Here are some options.

v  Concrete floor paints: They are the least expensive of coatings and very tough, saving your floor from chemical corrosion. You can use them to recoat the floor and touch up minor damages in the floor.

v  Sealers: They are a stronger version of the concrete floor paint and they too can be applied over the floor quite easily. In addition, they give a glossy look after they dry up. Latex sealers and acrylic sealers sell at a very nominal price. Your expert remodeling contractor will give you the best options available to match and make your floor look luxurious at a reasonable price.Floor coverings are typically more expensive than coatings, but they have longer life and you can       customize them, suitable to your tastes and likes!

v  Rubber mats: They are available in various sizes and patterns and they can cover an entire garage or just parts of it. You can install them in a short span of time and find them easy to clean too!

v  Interlocking plastic tiles: They come in great patterns allowing you to try out your own flooring ideas and make your garage look cool. The tiles are resistant to seepage and you can replace the damaged ones quickly.

These are just a few of the coatings and coverings available in the market. Both coatings and coverings have pros and cons and it is up to you to decide the type of protection for your flooring after consulting with your much-experienced remodeling contractor.

Floor remodeling is generally the costliest part of a garage-remodeling project and spending a few hundred extra dollars will surely will take off your shoulders the bother of maintenance for a long time.
