Car Parking Lifts

It's becoming more and more common for people to own several cars but not have enough parking spaces for all of them. If you have limited parking space in your home you should opt for car parking lift systems to optimize the space you currently have.

At Potomac Garage Solutions we have many car parking lifts that can help solve this problem.  Since there is growing demand for car parking lifts, there are some things you should know before purchasing one. 

Measure well before you go to buy a car parking lift

Car Parking Lifts
Take proper measurements before you go car lift shopping so that you can tell the parking lift installers the necessary specifications. Even if you are shopping online, you will need exact numbers. First of all, if you are thinking of buying a car lift your garage ceiling must be at least 11 to 12 feet high. Consider all scenarios, where will the lift go, is there proper space for the door to open and close, the size and weight of your vehicles, etc... The knowledge of these numbers is important. 


Know what type of car lift you want


Parking garage lifts come in a variety of different weight capacities and configurations depending on your needs. Single column lifts do not have the carrying capacity of heavier-duty models, but have a small footprint and can still effectively double your available parking space. Multi-column lifts have a higher carrying capacity. All lifts carried by Potomac Garage Solutions are functional for both indoor and outdoor locations.

Our car parking lifts have a great warranty and we offer them at reasonable prices at Potomac Garage Solutions

Whether it’s you or your kids, most houses build up a large supply of balls, bats, baskets, rackets and other pieces of sporting equipment over the years. We can easily create some shelves with the help of some hooks, hangers and other cabinets to organize your sporting gear instead of dumping them in a box.  Then you can simply hang your tennis and badminton rackets on the wall and take them off when you need them. 

Beyond basic shelving and hanging, we can organize your sports equipment with overhead storage, and our  garage storage lockers. 

Your floor needs a makeover too
Many people don't pay attention to their garage floors and that is probably why their garages don't look as good as they could even when you have made other changes. If your floor is starting to get cracks or look unclean, change it. Go for water resistant epoxy flooring: it is highly durable and gives the garage a clean, shiny look. While working in a garage a lot of dirt, paint and grease tends to get spilled on the floor but if you have used epoxy coating, you will be able to clean it up easily and your floor will still look great. If you come to our showroom, we will be happy to speak with your about our garage flooring options.

Garage Flooring in Maryland

Today, garage floors are one of the growing home improvement projects in many houses. They add comfort, warmth, safety and comfy to a normally cold, hard place. The rolled (sometimes call rubber garage floors) and garage floor tile are the most popular types of floors. Garage floor comes with a wide array of textures, colors and styles, giving users the opportunity to choose the one that best suits and keep their garage functional.
Garage Flooring in Maryland 
If you are looking for style, then you might be looking to install a fancy tile floor. If you simply want to protect your garage flooring; then, you have several other options to consider. At Potomac Garage Solutions, we want you to know that there are plenty of options for garage flooring in Maryland.
Below are some of the different options that are available and how you find a great flooring solution for your lifestyle:

PVC Interlocking Floor Tiles: Interlocking PVC flooring tiles form a great thermal, noise and dust barrier, so are the perfect choice if you are using your garage as a multi-use room such as a garage gym or play room. They are also extremely durable floor tile and so can cope with the everyday wear and tear if you are looking to transform your garage into a home workshop. Although not waterproof like the porcelain floor tile or the epoxy flooring, they are very easy to separate, wipe under and re-attach should you spill anything onto the floor

Aluminium Chequer Plate: Although this is not a particularly common finish for the garage floor, aluminium chequer plate flooring can be a great hi-tech looking solution if used correctly. As it comes in sheets instead of flooring tiles it is fixed to a subfloor of marine plywood / sealed mdf or applied onto a self-leveling PVA adhesive. As aluminium chequer plate flooring is made from a stronger and more durable flooring material it can look exceptionally good as a whole floor within a workshop or as a focal floor strip in the middle of the garage

Epoxy Flooring: Epoxy resin floors are common in industrial environments but are also ideally suited for garages. They provide a hard, durable coating to the floor and are available in a variety of colors and are very stylish. If you are looking for an epoxy flooring for your garage its best to opt for one that contains a quartz bead - these add not only another dimension and style to your floor but also an anti-slip coating.

Porcelain Floor Tiles: Porcelain Floor Tiles are common in automotive workshops and showrooms as they are very hard wearing. These high quality and contemporary tiles are normally used for professional automotive workshops. However, as porcelain tiles are available with raised patterns and have improved anti-slip properties over normal tiles when wet, they are an ideal flooring solution for home garages. Though slightly more expensive than other options, porcelain floor tiles provide an great investment as they last a long time and are easy to keep clean.
