3 Garage Flooring Types to Consider
When looking at improving the concrete floor in your garage, it’s important to consider all of your options. Finding the right floor refinishing option will involve balancing your budget, your preference for how it should look, and how difficult it will be to apply. Here are three garage flooring types you may want to consider in your search:
Painted Concrete: This affordable option for your concrete floors can be applied quickly and easily, but it’s not a long-lasting solution. Paint doesn’t offer the same stain and slip-resistant as other materials and is prone to chipping and cracking.
Epoxy Floor Coating: This slip-resistant and stain-resistant moisture barrier protects your concrete from normal wear and tear while making your garage look professional and polished. An epoxy floor coating like Floorguard® also lasts, making it a long-term investment in your garage look and performance. However, it will take appropriate cleaning and preparation to apply it.
Rubber Mats: This garage flooring option, available in mats, rolls, or tiles, can be placed over unfinished concrete, painted concrete, or epoxy coated concrete. While versatile, it only offers partial protection from moisture, stains, and spills. It can also be very expensive depending on your garage size.
At Floorguard®, we recommend epoxy floor coating as the best option for your garage, not just because it’s our product, but because we know it works. It offers long-lasting protection that looks professional and really ups the value of your garage space. Learn more about our garage flooring types and see if it’s the right choice for your home.

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!

Covering our old, gray garage floor was a great aesthetic and functional improvement. This project requires 2 days: first day preparing the surface (major job requiring right equipment), putting down first coating and sprinkling the flakes. This requires about 4 hours. After this dries, they come back next day and apply the topcoat. They notified us when they would start the work and arrived as promised. They worked diligently, completed the work efficiently, left the work areas and our driveway clean. The owner Steve is a great guy to deal with.

It was a pleasure dealing with the company’s owner Steve Chaloult. When we called him to give us an estimate, he arranged to come within a few days. We have a very large two car garage. His estimate was a bit more than the first company we called but he seemed very well prepared in showing us samples and very knowledgeable about his product and we just liked him. For personal reasons , we had to delay installation for about a month and he could not be more accommodating. we finally we able to have it done this past week and it was worth the wait. The garage floor is just beautiful and I never would have thought I would say that about a garage floor! We also had the lower walls around the floor done and very glad we did. At one time we were thinking we could do this ourselves using a kit. WHAT were we thinking? This is a job for a professional and we are so glad we used Steve.

The owner Steve Chaloult was easy to work with and he’s very good at what he does. I highly recommend Floorguard as your contractor if you’re wanting to have a garage floor finished with a durable epoxy like colored finish. Floorguard came when they said they would and cleaned up after they were finished. Floorguard also installs garage storage cabinets.
