By | Garage Floor, Garage Floor Coating, Garage Tips

We’re almost there; the end of 2019. That means, planning for 2020 is already underway. People everywhere are booking their vacation rentals, organizing big events and deciding what to do in the coming year. The same should go for anyone planning a remodeling project.

Renovations slated for next year have already begun. If you want to end up with the garage you hope for, now is the best time to start. Here are our suggestions for the best ways to use the final weeks of the year to properly jump-start your 2020 goals and finally get the garage of your dreams. 

Decide your Garage’s Purpose:
In order to get the most out of your garage, you must decide exactly how it’ll be used. Garages without a defined function end up accumulating all the odds and ends of your home and never fully look their best. 

Do you need it mostly for vehicle storage or is it a family game room? Another popular option is an at-home gym. Consider the needs of your family, too. If yours is growing you’ll need to create ample storage. Or, if everyone has moved out, now is the perfect time to create that man cave or hobby room!

From Pinterest to online shopping, homeowners eyeing a garage makeover are always collecting inspiration. If you’re one of them, start streamlining your tastes. Look through all the images you’ve saved. Do you like the luxury garages or a more lived in and functional look? My Gorilla Garage colors can help you accomplish both.

Ways a Garage Can Benefit You This Winter: 

By | Uncategorized

When cold weather hits, no one wants to step foot outside. Kids have little desire to play in uncomfortable temperatures and household chores typically done outdoors must move inside. If you have a garage, it’s the perfect place to move these activities to enjoy in a more comfortable environment.

Get the most out of your garage this winter with these great ways to utilize the extra space:

Home Entryway

Instead of dragging slush and snow into your home all winter long, use an interior access garage as a place to kick off shoes and take off outer layers before coming inside. Garages provide the perfect barrier between your clean home and the harsh elements outside.

Indoor Gym

No one wants to venture out before work during dark winter morning hours or on frigid nights. Using your garage space for a home gym means you can still keep up with your health and exercise routine without enduring the cold. You’ll also save time by not driving to go workout!

Workshop

Home repairs and car maintenance don’t stop over the winter. That means, you need a place to keep up with the to-do’s and chores while staying out of the cold weather. The perfect place is your garage! Clear out enough space to add a hip-height and sturdy surface to work on, an area to store your tools and equipment and a good light source.

Don’t forget the benefit of a finished garage floor while deciding what to do with the extra space this winter. Whether your garage falls victim to grease stains, piles of sawdust or high-impact exercise, My Gorilla Garage will protect it.

In a single day, you can make your garage the most versatile room of your home. There’s no risk and no cost for an estimate of your home! Contact your nearest My Gorilla Garage location today.

Caring for My Gorilla Garage Flooring

>ne question we are asked more than any other once the weather starts dropping is, “How does My Gorilla Garage hold up to the slush, ice and mud when parking the car in my garage after snow?”

In a standard garage with concrete flooring, a winter snowstorm’s mess is agonizing to deal with because of salt stains, broken seals from snowmelt freezing and thawing, and damage from deicers. Actually, most adverse weather leads to dirt and debris that takes a big toll on normal concrete flooring.

My Gorilla Garage flooring is tough. When it warms up,  throw some water on it, a little swishing with a broom and it will look exactly how it did when first installed.

My Gorilla Garage floor coating is stain-resistant and stands up to the worst of deicers, mud and salt. Your garage may still collect the usual winter grime this season, but after the 1-day process, your garage floor will be easier than ever to clean with just water. The surface beneath will remain in great condition, too.

If you need a floor coating that will stand up against slush, ice and mud in Cincinnati, Dayton or Indianapolis, give My Gorilla Garage a call today for a free estimate and say goodbye to dirty, grungy garage floors forever!

Wrapping up Summer in Your Garage:

By | Garage Floor, Garage Floor Coating, Garage Tips

The weather is getting cooler, which means it’s time to wrap up summer activities and prepare for fall. Before the holiday season takes over your schedule, there are a few things that need to be done after a summer of fun. Not sure where to start? Here’s what we suggest:

Put Away Summer Toys:

If there are bikes, balls and games littered around your yard, it’s time to clean up. Spend a day finding places to safely store everything. Families who accumulated new toys during the season might need to get creative in the garage! It’s the perfect place to store your summer items. Hang bikes from the ceiling or wall with heavy-duty hooks and install organized hanging or overhead storage to keep the floor clear.

Weather Stripping Garage Door:

If you’ve noticed water or dirt accumulating in your garage near the door, the problem is likely a worn weather seal. Most garage doors come with this bottom seal to keep water, wind and dirt at bay but are so big, that the strip wears down quickly. Re-sealing your garage door is simple and protects all its important contents during the months ahead.

Insulate Your Garage

Do you have an attached garage with an uninsulated door? It’s costing you money. Make your home as energy-efficient as possible with an upgrade. Even if you only insulate the garage door, it will significantly improve heat retention and could make a difference in your utility bill. Take full advantage of the improvement and do it now, before fall or winter.

Protect Your Floors:

Families will soon spend more time indoors and your garage will see more action. Whether you use the space for watching the games, working on your car or just some quiet time over the holidays–protect it. My Gorilla Garage flooring not only prevents spills from staining and covers unsightly cracks, but it makes the room much more inviting.

Call or contact My Gorilla Garage today for a free, no-obligation estimate for your new garage floor.  It’s a great investment in the comfort, usability and market value of your home. Call (844) 674-5521 for our Cincinnati office, or (941) 216-1964 for our Florida office.

If you use your garage space for home maintenance projects, as a workshop, or if it serves as a center for outdoor family activities, it is an unpleasant place in the summer when not cooled.

There are several methods for an enjoyable garage depending on your climate. Areas with mild summers get away with basic ventilation, but if your summers are hot and muggy, a full-blown air-conditioning unit is the most effective solution. Read More
