Flooring Options
Your garage houses your vehicle, important tools, family toys like bikes and scooters, and so much more. Having important items in an area makes it important to have them on a resistant and durable surface. Below are the best garage flooring options for any garage need or want!
Floor Paint
Flooring Options
What in the world is floor paint? Well, if you’ve ever painted a wall, then you’re more than halfway there. Floor paint is a little bit stronger than wall paint that has been made to be applied to your garage floor. Even though floor paints are not resistant to damages, if you are someone who doesn’t constantly use your garage for storage and you aren’t worried about rain, snow, moisture, or heat damages, paint can be a good affordable option for you.
The average cost for floor pain is around 15 cents per square foot or less and can be easily found on the shelves of local stores.
Epoxy Coating
Epoxy Coating
If you are someone who uses your garage for more than just occasionally, an epoxy floor coating is what you want! These floors are quick to install and extremely resistant to weather and vehicle damages. It is important to note, store-bought DIY kits are not the same quality in resistance, maintenance, or longevity as professionally installed materials. Epoxy floors can be quickly installed, are nontoxic, resist all forms of damage, and last for decades. Costs may vary between manufacturer and professional installer; however, the average would be between $3-$10 per square foot depending on the style and type of epoxy coating.
Concrete Stain
Concrete Stain
For a decorative coloring solution that will not peel, lift, or crack, stained concrete is where it’s at! These floors have natural tones that cannot be found in other harsher coloring options. Even though the stain itself does not protect your concrete, there are sealers and other topical additions that will do just that. The precautions you take on maintenance and prevention for your floors is completely up to the amount of usage and traffic your garage sees on a daily basis.
Rigid Snap-Tiles
Concrete Stain
Made from stiffer plastic materials, these floors are meant to feel and be strong. They can handle heavier loads than other rigid floors without cracking or scratching and do not crumble when exposed to adverse weather conditions. The best part about these tiles is that they come in all sorts of different colors, patterns, and designs to help your floors look and feel authentic. Mold below the tiles is highly unlikely if they have been installed correctly and vehicle fluids and chemicals will not break these bad boys down! They are quick and easy to clean/install, don’t wait!
Rollout Mats
Concrete Stain
Just like the name implies, you simply roll them out! Mats come in a variety of lengths, widths, colors, patterns, and textures. You can use roll out mats to cover your entire garage floor or only portions of it, whatever you fancy most. Installation can be done by the homeowner or professional without extensive mistakes being made. For garages that need floors to be resistant to common damages like abrasions, sharp items constantly being dropped, or kickstands for motorcycle’s, these mats may not be the best choice. However, they are affordable, long-lasting, and can be installed by the owner alone.
Flexible Interlocking Tiles
Rigid Snap-Tiles
The best part about these floors is that cracking, and damages caused by cracking are highly unlikely because they move with the flow of the area. These floors are slip-resistant and are highly comfortable for bare feet. If you damage a tile, unlike roll out mats, the individual tile or tiles can be replaced without having to completely redo the floors.

All in all, your garage flooring options are there, but what are you going to be using this space for?
