For years, porcelain tile flooring has been used in auto dealership showrooms and many other commercial applications. Today, this solution is gaining popularity among homeowners looking for a stylish alternative for their garage flooring.
The main appeal to porcelain is that it looks luxurious and is the most durable and easy to clean material of all garage flooring options. Contrary to popular belief, a porcelain tile garage floor will not be more slippery than standard concrete when wet, and sometimes even less so.
Porcelain tile absorbs very little moisture because of its extremely high-density construction, making it almost impervious to any kind of stains. It will not fade in sunlight, and porcelain is frost, scratch and chip resistant, as well as impact and heavy loads. It will take a significant impact to break a porcelain tile. It is very resilient to abrasion, and not affected by chemicals or cleaning agent. It is manufactured as a through-body tile, which means the colour and materials run through the thickness of the entire tile. If a chip, crack or break occurs, a tile can simply be removed and replaced with a new one. Available in limited sizes and colours, you can still get creative when designing the floor pattern of your tiles. For installation, the grinding of your garage floor may be required beyond cleaning the concrete. Contraction joints will need to be filled and it is important to make sure the surface is even with no extreme high or low spots. Most of the time, single garages cannot be considered for that reason.
