Residential Garage Flooring

Are you looking for garage floors? Since 2003, Potomac Garage Solutions has been offering a wide variety of flooring options to customers in Maryland, Washington, DC and Northern Virginia.

Residential Garage Flooring

For most of us, garages are pretty much an afterthought when we consider our homes. And until it’s time to make a major repair, we tend not to even think about them.

Nevertheless, the time comes when you need to make a change to the garage. And in most cases, residential garage flooring is most likely one of the most important things to change. Your garage floor does its job round the clock, taking a significant amount of traffic and load. And over time, it wears down.

From vehicles themselves to materials like chemicals and oil, garage floors take a lot of punishment. You also need to consider the fact that your garage floor is easily subject to extreme temperatures. All of this can cause massive damage to the surface of the floor - and in some cases, even go deeper.

It might take a while for you to spot repairs on your garage floor. However, you’ll eventually find these problems sooner or later. To make your work easier, here are a few signs you might want to look out for:

An increasing number of cracks

Finding cracks in your garage floor shouldn’t necessarily concern you. From natural shrinkage and expansion to the load your garage floor has to carry, it’s easy for it to get cracks. However, when these cracks get too much, you might have a problem.

As time goes on, these cracks get worse and become wider and deeper. At this point, a replacement is definitely necessary.

High levels of moisture

If you’ve not sealed your floor with weather stripping, then you might have an issue with moisture - whether from the weather or materials leaking on the floor. This moisture eventually causes the floor to expand, weakening its structure and wearing it down.

Once water starts to pool, you know you have an issue with uneven flooring and poor drainage. This could end up leading to issues like lifts, cracks, and even bad smell.

Uneven flooring

If you start to notice holes, dips, and bulges in your floor, then you could have a serious problem on your hands. There could be small, uneven parts or even an entire slab that has pretty much sunk.

Uneven flooring could be part of a much larger problem with the foundation under the floor. Whatever it is, be sure to examine that before you decide to get a replacement floor.

Old age

Finally, you should consider the effects of old age. If your garage floor has been in place for many years or you’re moving into a new house and aren’t sure about how long the floor has been in place, then you just as well might want to consider a replacement.

Garage Cabinets

Garage Cabinets

One of the primary functions of your garage is to serve as a storage location. For most of us, garages are places where we can keep items and stuff that we might not necessarily be using at the moment - old clothes, gear and tools, our cars, bicycles, etc.

To be fair, there’s nothing wrong with this. Garages can be so much more, but the mere fact that you use yours as a storage location primarily isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The problem, however, comes in the fact that most of us tend to store everything in our garages - and we do so in such a way that the garages end up being disorganized.

Helping with this is what garage cabinets can do for you. These cabinets can easily be installed, and they come with a significant number of benefits. 

Eliminating clutter and messes

One of the primary benefits of having cabinets in your garage is that they help to clear any clutter.

We all tend to make the same mistake when it comes to garages - throwing things everywhere, willy-nilly. The problem is that this creates unnecessary clutter and can even be  safety hazard. With cabinetry, you can cut down on this and create a more organized garage.

Instead of just throwing things anywhere, garage cabinets allow you to pretty much put things in place. So, when they are needed, you no where to find them. And, you can easily create more space on your floor and ensure that your garage is generally more organized.

Bolstering your garage’s appearance 

It’s easy to think that garage cabinets are more functional items. However, there is no reason why they can’t be aesthetic as well.

A garage cabinet system offers more value to your home than just acting as a storage amenity. With the right system and proper installation, you can let your cabinet be a part of the decoration in your home. Provide a modern, finished look that immediately bolsters the appearance of your garage and adds significant value to the entire home.

An improvement to safety

More often than not, a disorganized garage is also an unsafe one. When items are kept in a disorganized manner, the risk of tripping and leaking hazards immediately rises. You also need to consider the risk of damage that items like chemicals and more can have to the floor - as well as your vehicles and other important things.

With a garage cabinet, you can significantly reduce this risk. You can keep dangerous items in check, ensuring that they can be taken and retrieved when they’re needed. Cabinets also ensure that your floor space is freer and easier to maneuver.
