If you are looking for a natural alternative to hardwood, you may consider completing your look with stone. Many options ranging from granite and marble to various types of flagstone.

For durability and resistance against water damage or stains, epoxy floors may be the option of choice. This works great inside a garage, especially if you want to use it as a workshop for woodwork or cars. Epoxy cleans easily and offers a seamless solution that is practical.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best flooring for a garage?
The most economical floor type for a garage is usually concrete, and most are built this way. However, you can improve the look and durability with polished concrete. This creates a seal for the concrete, and also steps up the look and feel above the norm. If your budget allows, we also recommend epoxy. Epoxy can be poured over any surface, including concrete. It will stand the test of time, and you can specify the design of your choice, while maintaining ease of cleaning as well as moisture and stain resistance.
What is resilient flooring?
Resilient flooring refers to the subset of floor types that fall between hard and soft surfaces, offering the benefits of both worlds. For example, hardwood or stone floors maintain firmness as opposed to carpet floors which are soft and have give. Resilient floors would be any type of floor that maintains its firmness, yet still has some bounce or play in the material. Vinyls and laminates along with epoxy are popular examples of this. Asphalt or cork are also resilient options commonly used outdoors in place of concrete or brick.
What is the best way to clean vinyl plank floors?
The easiest way to maintain vinyl plank is to clean it on a regular basis. It does not require any special washing technique or solution. Mopping with a bucket of hot water (2 quarts), mixed with a small amount of dish soap (1/4 cup), and a splash of white vinegar (1 cup) will do the trick. The dish soap acts as a solvent to help loosen dirt, grime and grease. While the white vinegar disinfects surfaces, and is safe for pets and children. This method is not only good for vinyl plank, but is also effective on other surfaces such as tile, epoxy, concrete or stone.
What is better? Laminate vs Vinyl
This really comes down to your preference of price vs benefits. Laminate floors tend to be a bit softer, and also more cost effective. However, with the lower cost comes less durability over time. Laminate can succumb to moisture and need to be replaced every 10-15 years, especially when used in areas like kitchens, bathrooms, or basements. On the other hand, vinyl floors have come a long way. Many are waterproof and very durable. These are especially effective for investment or rental properties due to the ease of installation and value for money. Although vinyl tends to be a little higher in price when compared to laminate, it is still cost efective when compared to other types of floors. Vinyl holds up in high traffic areas and will stand up to moisture in kitchens and bathrooms a lot longer than laminate.
What is the best low maintenance flooring?
When considering which type of floor is most suitable, many raise the question about maintenance. In the short term you may be considering the ease of cleaning, however there are also long term considerations for durability and upkeep of your floor. For the purpose of short term maintenance, vinyl, epoxy and hardwood floors are likely the best choice for low maintenance cleaning. You will avoid having to clean grout, and are able to use multiple traditional cleaning methods like vacuuming, sweeping or mopping. As for long term maintenance, to avoid having to refinish your floors an engineered hardwood may be suitable. Engineered variations are longer lasting and less prone to scratching and issues related to pressure or temperature changes over time.
How soon can you put furniture on vinyl plank flooring?
It is generally recommended that you wait at least 24 hours before placing your furniture back onto your newly installed vinyl plank. This will ensure proper adhesion and settling. It’s not as big of an issue for light furniture, however heavier items may cause problems with your installation. We also recommend using some sort of padding underneath heavy furniture, which can be found at your local hardware store. This will ensure extra protection against scratching or scraping from. heavy furniture legs.
