If your garage drain does not have a cover or has an old and rusty cover, it’s time to find something new. It’s important to have a durable and reliable garage drain grate to keep debris out of your garage drain as well as prevent anyone from tripping over the drain hole.

A customized garage drain grate will enhance the overall appearance of your garage, while also keeping your drain unclogged.

With a simple garage drain cover, you can avoid the headache of more problems associated with the clogged drain.

If you’re ready to replace your garage drain cover, there are four different styles from you to choose from. Measure the size of your garage drain and how it was built to learn more about what garage drain grate is right for you.

#1 PVC Drain Cover

A PVC drain cover will fit most standard PVC garage drains. The circular design of the cover ensures easy installation over your garage drain for safety and longevity. It’s important to find a garage drain grate that comes with a lifetime warranty to ensure its durability. Carbon coated steel garage drain covers are ideal for a long-term solution.
