You don’t have to be a car enthusiast or professional mechanic to appreciate high-quality garage flooring.
After all, for many working people in Calgary, the garage floor is the last thing you see in the morning when you leave home and then the first thing you see when you return in the evening. It should be more than an afterthought.
Substandard floors quickly get “found out” by our harsh climate here in Calgary. Installing a new garage floor can resurrect a tired-looking garage or be the final finishing touch to a new home or business.
Fortunately, there are far more options available now than simply a plain, unsealed concrete floor that constantly looks grubby.
In fact, you’ve never had more flooring options available – and it needn’t cost you a fortune to finally get the garage floor you want.
Following is a closer look at the many garage flooring options available from our team at The Garage Store:
Whether you are looking for a garage floor to simply augment your home or you plan to spend hours at the weekend working on your car, your choice of flooring matters.
You will need to consider the following factors:
Once you’ve considered the basic qualities of what you need, it’s time to consider the main types of options available.
Thankfully, the days are long gone when you had to tolerate a dirty, dusty, cracked, damp, and dank concrete floor, creating an unhealthy and unsightly garage environment.
The world of garage flooring has moved on. Now, you too can have a premium quality floor that looks a million dollars but doesn’t break the bank.
A new floor can add a new dimension to a garage with a beautiful gloss finish and an instant facelift, creating a healthier, brighter, and more welcoming environment.
Resins can be used to seal your floor and make it waterproof. They are easy to keep clean and durable enough that you won’t have to worry about repairs or too much maintenance for years ahead. They have excellent bond strength and offer long-term abrasion and corrosion resistance.
Following are the main types of garage flooring now available:
Polyaspartic floors use a solid colour coating system that provides premium scratch and wear- resistance and anti-slip traction. They hide wear and tear, are easy to clean and are backed up by long adhesion warranties.
Polished concrete and decorative floor sealers and densifiers are excellent alternatives to polyaspartic floors, offering a wide array of finishes.
If you have a cracked concrete floor, cement overlays are a cost-effective alternative to replacing the entire floor.
Our garage tiling systems are simple to install and a popular alternative to standard concrete and coatings.
With a wide range of materials and designs, tiling is a popular choice for homeowners looking for a unique garage style.
Installing a garage floor is no DIY job. For starters, there are health and safety risks with installing industrial-grade chemical-based products such as polyaspartic and epoxy.
The experienced installation team at The Garage Store will simplify the process and we always put safety first during what can be a complex installation process.
Almost two decades of experience in garage floor installations enables us to offer long-term adhesion warranties for your floor.
After your free consultation over the phone, we can schedule you for a complimentary site visit. We will find out what you want, answer any questions you have, measure up, and provide a digital model of your garage with a quote for the various options available.
Once the design has been approved and signed off, our professional installation team books you in at a mutually convenient time and we get to work on creating the garage floor you always wanted.
