3 Steps to Storing Water Sports Equipment in Your Garage
Are low cost and accessibility just a couple of the reasons that influenced your decision to store your personal watercraft in your garage? There are many advantages to keeping your boat, Jet Ski, or kayak at your home, so make your space as functional as possible with these tips:
Take size into consideration by making measurements where needed. If you have a dry boat rack or a kayak rack you can outline and measure the area where you’re planning on storing it. Measure the watercraft to make sure you have enough room and you will eliminate the potential of space problems later.
OPTIMIZED FLOORING SYSTEM
A garage that functions in this manner and sees this much action needs to be protected. Of all the garage flooring types available, epoxy floor coating systems offer the most durability. They boast a moisture barrier that keeps water damage at bay. They can stand up to chemicals often used in marine mechanics and fuels. Spills and messes are a breeze to clean up. Protecting your garage with epoxy will allow your garage to keep on protecting the things that you love.
OTHER STORAGE CONSIDERATIONS
Consider implementing organized functional storage solutions for all the gear and tools you might want to have close to the watercraft. Some of these items may include life jackets, tackle gear, fishing poles, mechanical tools, repair kits, coolers, and oars. Maximize space by stacking storage options vertically as well as horizontally. You’ll appreciate having a convenient location for all of your gear when you’re in a hurry to get to your next adventure on the water!

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.
