Standing water can produce mildew and various unpleasant odors in your garage, and if your flooring is bare concrete, it will slowly eat away at the surface. In the event of a flood, the water will have nowhere to go, filling your garage and potentially damaging all of your belongings.
Rust and corrosion will break down the materials in your garage floor drain cover, and if left alone for too long, pieces will start to break off. Some covers will cave in entirely, fall directly into the drain, and create a massive blockage that you cannot reach by hand. This blockage introduces the same problems as before, but now, you do not have the ability to just pull it out.
To solve this issue, you will have to call a plumber to come to remove the broken metal drain grates and potentially any damaged PVC piping. This will cost significantly more than proactively replacing your garage floor drain cover, so we highly recommend acting as soon as possible.
Why Choose Our Garage Floor Drain Cover?
Ohio’s weather can be harsh and unpredictable, so you need a garage drain cover that can endure a variety of environmental factors. Fluctuating temperatures, humidity, chemicals, road salts, and flooding are just a few things your drain cover will encounter. Many garages use cast iron covers, and while cast iron sounds strong, it is incredibly vulnerable to rust, corrosion, and cold temperatures. They also have issues with discoloration, chipping, and expansion during corrosion, which damages the surrounding floor.
Our garage floor drain covers are designed with powder-coated carbon steel and manufactured in the USA. These materials offer exceptional resistance to rust and corrosion as well as harsh weather conditions. Carbon steel also has a significantly higher density and tensile strength than iron, making them extremely difficult to break.
Longevity is one of the most important considerations when you choose a garage floor drain cover. Iron covers require frequent replacements due to their susceptibility to corrosion and having something that rusts so easily just increases the chance of larger issues. Our garage drain covers not only use superior materials, but we will also offer a lifetime warranty. Even in the unlikely event that these covers do break, you do not have to worry about spending any more money.
We also offer virtually unlimited sizes and configurations for our drain covers. We will customize our drain covers to fit perfectly with your drainage system.
