Springtime is a popular time to clean up your garage. But, why stop at simply removing clutter? A new or refurbished garage floor could be the beginning of a makeover that gives you a great deal more useful space.

Options can include a range of treatments, from smoothing and painting your existing floor to resurfacing it with a new coat of concrete. You could also consider coating your garage floor with a new compound or membrane in the form of a poured synthetic; or, installing interlocking tiles made of recycled materials such as old automobile tires. One of the long-term benefits of a new garage floor could be the ability to retrofit your garage into an indoor workshop or an expanded living area.
