How to Measure Garage Thickness

Thickness rules the realm of garage floors. It’s the driving power behind your floor, making sure it’s not just pretty to look at but also a strong barrier against everyday wear and strain.

There are two methods for determining a garage floor’s thickness:

  1. Use a measuring tape. If the garage floor is visible, you may quickly gauge the distance from the top to the bottom using a tape measure.
  2. Make a floor hole with a drill. You will need to drill a hole in the flooring if the garage floor is covered with flooring material to determine the thickness of the floor.

Drilling too deeply runs the risk of damaging your home’s foundation. After hitting a hole, feed a piece of wire through the gap to the bottom.

Where the wire touches the top of the floor, mark that location. After removing the wire, measure the distance from the mark to the wire’s end. Your garage floor’s thickness is indicated here.

Here are some more guidelines for estimating the thickness of a garage floor:

  • To obtain an accurate average, measure the thickness several times.
  • Be careful not to harm any plumbing or electrical cables when drilling a hole in the floor.
  • It is essential to speak with a specialist if you know how to gauge garage floor thickness.

Knowing the thickness of your garage floor can help you select the best flooring choice and installation technique.

For instance, if your garage floor is thin, choose a flooring material like epoxy or self-leveling concrete for light floors.

Additionally, lay the flooring material on plywood or OSB as a subfloor.
