Choose This Flooring Option For Your Garage

Most new homes these days have carpeted garages

If you’re like most homeowners in New Zealand, your garage is simply a place to park your car and store some household items. Many people don’t use this space to its full potential; carpeting your garage is one way to change that.

Carpeting your garage may seem an extravagant idea, and not particularly useful in a working garage situation. It is, however, one of the best flooring options for your garage, and can significantly increase the value of your home. There are a number of benefits associated with specialist garage carpet as a flooring option. From increased comfort to extra protection for vehicles, carpet can transform your garage into a functional living space—at cost-effective prices.

If you’re still deciding whether to carpet your existing garage floor, read on to discover its main advantages.

Why Work with GaragePro?

1.Improves Garage Insulation

Most garages are not insulated, which means they can be very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer. This can make your garage an uncomfortable place to be: as well as being impractical for garage storage, if you wish to store items sensitive to temperature changes.

By carpeting your garage floor, you can provide an extra layer of insulation. This can improve the comfort of not only your garage but your entire home, as less heat is able to escape under doors.

2.Secure Against Car Wheels

There are many types of garage carpet—including carpet squares. Carpet squares are made of thinner materials that can easily be damaged by the wheels of your car. Often loose-laid, these can shift when walked on or driven over. Garage carpet, however, is glued down, making it much more durable and less likely to pose tripping hazards.

3.Great for Wet Days

Because garage carpet is synthetic, it is waterproof. This means you can drive in and out on those rainy days without fear of ruining the carpet. People who re-use offcuts from their house carpet in their garage will soon find they have damp and mould developing, giving off an awful musty smell. Garage carpet doesn’t do that, because it doesn’t hold moisture.

4.Extremely Durable

When it comes to choosing a carpet for your garage, durability should be one of your top considerations. Fortunately, garage carpets are designed to be extremely durable, able to withstand heavy use and plenty of spills, scratches and stains. They’re usually made from materials like polyester or polypropylene, which are both very strong and resistant to wear and tear.

If the kids have come in with their muddy footy boots or ridden in with wet and dirty bikes, garage carpet stains can also be cleaned easily. Every now and again, give it a good rug doctor or even a water-blast to freshen it up.

Of course, no carpet is completely indestructible, but a good quality garage carpet will give you many years of reliable service. 

5.Low Maintenance

Unlike other types of flooring, you don’t have to worry about sweeping and mopping garage carpet on a regular basis. Instead, you can simply vacuum once a week to remove any dirt and dust that has accumulated. If any stains occur, they can usually be removed with a little soap and water. 

If you love wood-working and have your lathe set up in the garage, it’s easy to vacuum or blow away wood chips and sanding dust off the carpet. You can easily blow leaves away too, as they creep inside the garage. 

6.Versatile Living Space

Not everyone has the luxury of a large home with multiple rooms: each devoted to specific functions. For many of us, our homes have to serve a variety of purposes, and that often means getting creative with the space we have. One way to maximise the utility of your home is to install garage carpet. 

Maybe you’ll leave your home gym equipment set up, now that it’s warmer and more comfortable in the garage. Or, you can bring the projector in for the kids for a fun Friday family night. Whatever your needs, garage carpeting can help you make the most of your living space.

7.Absorbs Noise

Garage carpet absorbs more noise than a concrete floor, so it’s perfect for those noisy family activities – the teenage garage band, the banging and hammering of the amateur inventor, the giggling girls’ sleepover, or the lively table-tennis competitions. The garage can also make for a peaceful workspace, allowing you to minimise outside noise and distraction.
