Garage Tiles vs. Garage Floor Coatings

If you have plans to organize your garage this summer, you may have thought about the possibility of sprucing up your garage floors. There are actually quite a few options available to you when improving a garage floor, and generally include floor tiles and floor coatings. Although concrete flooring is functional, you have more practical options available to you, but how do you decide which option is best?

Garage tiles are often high end flooring options that comprise of interlocking pieces to create a durable surface. With tiles, you are able to arrange your tiles in a design that fits yours taste, but it also comes with a high cost and a few downsides. When you compare tiles to garage floor coatings, durability is a great factor.

Tiles may look great, but because they are interlocking, any liquid, oils or chemicals may seep through the tiles, making it much more difficult to clean compared to garage floor coatings. Tiles are also susceptible to cracking and scratches, and are likely to need replacing more often than a coated floor.

The wonderful thing about garage floor coatings is that they are easy to install, and are virtually maintenance-free. It’s a cost-effective way to keep your garage looking sleek, and can last for years without re-installation. What makes garage coatings ideal is that they can withstand heavy use, and won’t stain, fade or yellow; if your vehicle leaks oil, it would generally stain concrete, but with a floor coating, that hassle is eliminated.

Coating your garage floor can dramatically improve the look and feel of your garage, in addition to being easier to clean and maintain.
