I have a car mat that catches water in my garage but it gets overloaded and
water pools in one corner of my garage.
I would like to contain the water. I thought I would glue some 2x4s to the
floor with silicone caulk so at least the meltoff would not run where I
don't want it. Would that work, or has anyone seen a commercial product
that would do this?
2x4s are too big and prone to make people trip. I'd suggest you use
the long molding strips at home depot made from plastic/wood like
Interesting problem as I had not considered that garages in the north
must be bult with floor drains or carefully sloped to the outside.
Not just for water...
It's gotten to the point where the building code up here now forbids
garage floors below grade.
Most building codes require slope and/or drainage because of gas fumes pooling
up, whether or not they have a snow problem. Electrical codes, recognize
this by having special consideration for electrical boxes in garages below
a few inches up the wall.
