Considering a dirt floor in your garage?

by Abby Mwesigwa on November 22, 2018

For most women, the heart of their home is their kitchen but for most men … it’s their garage. And like choosing the flooring for a kitchen, choosing the flooring for your new VersaTube garage can be a difficult decision, too.

If you’re looking for affordable flooring options for your new garage, you may be considering leaving the floor bare. We get this question a lot, actually. But it’s really not the right question to ask. Rather, read this blog and then ask yourself: “Do I want to?”


One of the by-products of having a bare dirt floor in your garage is dust. If you’re strictly using your building as a garage, it may not be a problem. But for those who are using their garage as a place to store tools and other valuables, this may prove to be a nuisance.


Inevitably, when water and dirt mix they will create mud. Now, you may be wondering, how did the water get into your VersaTube garage? It’s actually pretty simple. If you are storing your car in the garage, it’s possible that you may find yourself in a rainstorm … and the water would be carried in on your car and drip down, mixing with the dirt your bare dirt floor. In this scenario, anything that has moisture on it may also lead to a muddy mess, including the bottom of your shoes, tires …


Over time, your car driving in and out of your garage may create divots in the bare dirt floor. This may cause a problem after an extended period of time. To help prevent this issue from developing, you’ll need to regularly rake and re-level the dirt floor.

At VersaTube, we understand that you may not be able to install the recommended concrete flooring right away. If you choose to go with a bare dirt floor, you will still need to pour concrete for footings and piers for your garage to ensure proper construction.
