I recently bought a new home. Well, it’s new to me anyway. It’s what they call a “fixer-up” that requires a significant amount of work in order to get it into top-notch condition. This home has a garage that comes with it, and I plan to use the garage as a work shop, where I can do woodwork and work on cars. However, the garage wasn’t suitable for this by my standards when I purchased the home. In this article, I will discuss how I used quality garage floor covering in order to help get my shop into operating condition.
When I bought the home, the garage was a mess, particularly the floor. It was covered with oil stains, cracks, and chips. It was totally not presentable. I would be embarrassed if friends showed up unannounced and seen this place. After doing some research, I decided to install some tile garage floor covering to make the floor more presentable. This floor covering works great. It covers up all of those ugly stains, chips, and cracks. It protects the floor from further damage that might result from liquid spills or something being dropped on the floor. It is somewhat more comfortable to stand and walk on than the old cement floor underneath. It looks great as it reflects the overhead lighting, to really brighten up the place. It comes with a variety of designs on it, helping you to customize the appearance of your garage. Because I like cars, I went for the NASCAR logo with a checkered flag in the background.
This floor covering is very easy to install. The tiles are interlocking, as they simply snap together by hand. There is little to no surface preparation involved, other than for a little bit of cleaning. If you can install frosted privacy window film, then you can install this easily. There is no adhesive involved. If you move out, you can pick up the tiles and take them with you to your new place and install them there. Due to the modular nature of tile garage floor covering, if one tile breaks, then all you have to do is replace the defective tile, which can be done in a matter of minutes. Other floor coverings can be much more difficult to repair. These tiles are hard, rigid, and stand up very well against wear and tear. They even give me option of converting my shop into an entertainment center later on if I want to.
This article just described how I used quality garage floor covering to improve the appearance of my garage and protect the underlying floor. Perhaps, you should consider doing this in your garage.
