Get a lot of moisture settling in the garage during summers here in minnesota. the firebird is not happy about it. wondering if anyone has a similar problem and if there is a floor treatment that will help. im thinking a tile system will insulate the floor a bit and keep it from being the giant dehumidifier that it is.

I get that in the spring but once the floor warms up it goes away .

My garage is the worst i hate it. It is a place to keep the car from the rain and elements though.
When heavy rain or flooding hits it runs right under the walls from being rotted and travels right into the garage out the doors. No insulation so heat is useless. Oh and a tree limb fell right through the new roof so water drips in on the one corner.

Yea i would be totally happy with just a floor that got moisture on it lol

How about using a couple of dehumidifiers. I see them at thrift shops regularly in the $20-$30 price range.

This is for original poster, won't help the guy with the hole in his roof and water run off problems.

It might be as simple as better ventilation.

Lots of possibilities depending on the severity of the problem. As far as the car chambers, I think you could make one cheaper than these at carcovershop and garage-toys. Perhaps a combination of a chamber with a small dehumidifier. Heaters use a lot of electricity. Some of the chemical dehumidifiers are meant to be dried in a microwave periodically.

How about epoxying the floors it may help some? I did it to my floors about 2 years ago and seemed to help but I have a detached garage and in time will put heat out there as had it built 2 years ago. Nice about the epoxy floor it does clean up easy :).
