Concrete for garage floors

McHugh Concrete delivers high-quality concrete in smaller amounts that many domestic customers require, ideal for small- and medium-sized jobs, including garage floor bases.

In order to prevent your garage floor concrete slab from cracking, it’s important to get the right concrete for the job. 

What type of concrete do we recommend?

C20 C25 or C30 / PAV1 are the most suitable types of ready mixed concrete for garage floors.

Standard thickness of the garage floor slabs used worldwide is 150mm. Depending upon the load placed on the slab, the thickness should be adjusted. Typical examples are:

  1. Light Loads – For one to two light cars, the concrete should be at least 100mm thick
  2. Medium Loads – If the garage is used for average-sized vehicles and/or medium to heavy trucks, the concrete needs to be 150mm thick
  3. Heavy Loads – If your garage floor is going to see constant traffic from heavy vehicles, it is recommended the concrete is 150mm to 200mm thick. The floor must also be treated and sealed properly to avoid heavy loads, like large trucks, cracking the concrete
