Top Garage Flooring FAQs
What’s The Most Popular Flooring?
Concrete is the most used foundation for attached and detached garages. Nothing beats the stability and reliability of a concrete pad, and it’s your best bet for a safe, long-lasting garage.
Why Is A Concrete Pad Necessary?
A concrete floor will anchor the structure, providing stability and helping the garage withstand outdoor elements. A concrete slab will handle the weight of vehicles, lawn equipment, refrigerators, and other heavy equipment with ease and will last decades without showing signs of wear. It also can endure the abuse of gasoline, oil, antifreeze, and other liquids that might leak onto it over time.
Are There Other Flooring Options?
Gravel and wooden floors also can be used in a garage, but they work best if you're not planning to store vehicles or other heavy equipment. However, these alternatives are far less durable.
Do I Need A Floor Coating?
A coating will protect your concrete garage floor and give it a clean, finished appearance. There are many options, offering everything from waterproofing to aesthetic appeal.
