During the summer months, dirt, debris and fluid spills from your vehicle can cause your garage floor to look unsightly. But during the fall and winter months, the added problem of water, snow and ice can make it unsafe.

One solution to combating all of the problems above is to install containment mat. When you park your car on the mat, any melted snow and ice will drip onto its surface. Dirt and debris will collect there as well. You can clean the mat when it becomes too dirty, or hang it out to dry when it’s too wet.

The downside to a containment mat is that it only covers a small portion of the garage floor and requires the user to be physically able to lift it as needed.

A better option is to have your entire garage floor resurfaced. I recommend the Flex-Core system.

Flex-Core is stronger and more flexible than traditional epoxy coatings. It’s non-porous and stain resistant, repelling dirt, road salt, paint, gas and oil. It’s also slip resistant, even when the chilly fall rains and freezing temperatures of winter arrive.

Flex-Core is available in an extensive palette of customizable colors, so you can match it with the cabinet or organizational system currently in your garage, or pair it with a complete makeover that includes attractive and rugged storage options.

A Flex-Core floor will not chip, blister or peel, even when temperatures dip down low. Flex-Core can be installed any time of the year and it’s backed by a 10-year warranty. Expect your Flex-Core floor to last at least 15 years or more.

Now is a perfect time to have a new Flex-Core floor installed, before the freezing temperatures and salt, slush and ice arrive.
