How to Protect Your Garage Floor from Winter Weather

Share Article

Winter weather can wreak havoc on garage floors. Rain, sleet and snow -- plus salt and grime from the roads can weasel its way in with your car and deposit a slippery mess on your garage floor. Over time, this kind of accumulation can also cause severe water damage to concrete floors.

Focus of water damage prevention when choosing a garage floor covering.

Several easy, inexpensive garage floor covering solutions can be found online at JNKProducts™, but the main thing you want to keep in mind when choosing a product for wet weather climates is avoiding concrete deterioration in your garage floors and walls.

Choose a garage floor cover with a ribbed or textured surface.

These products are designed to capture dirt and channel melted snow and rain out of your garage. Roll out garage flooring will often feature this type of textured surface as it is designed to avoid heavy accumulation in any one area. And, since it catches dirt and debris, it also reduces messy tracks into the house. You also want to be sure whatever you install is durable, stain resistant from oil/mud/dirt, and easy to maintain.

Check the estimated installation time before you buy.

Be sure to review the installation process before you order anything for your garage floors. Often it's as easy as unrolling the mat and sealing it, taking as little as 30 minutes! You'll find it's best to choose garage floor covers that do not require any sort of adhesives as they are much easier to install.

Decide how much of your garage floor you want to cover.

You can buy a garage floor mat or simple parking pad that just targets the area beneath your car, or you can cover a larger area -- even your whole garage. Visit JNK Products to request a free estimate for covering your entire garage floor.
