Adding Beauty and Benefit To Your Garage
For many people the garage is just as important to a home as much as any other room is. There are people who convert garages to a leisure rooms, and there are some who use them strictly for work rooms. The standard of course is to use garages for storing cars. Either way, it is very important for people to get the most out of their garage for as long as possible.
Just like living rooms and dining rooms are decorated and designed garages can be too. The first and arguably most important part of decorating a garage is the flooring. When people walk into a room they naturally tend to look at the floor. The obvious reason is that they need to look at where they are going. Shouldn’t the flooring of any room make a great impression for guests? Most homeowners at one time or another come to a point where they contemplate getting a set of garage floor coverings.
Garage floor coverings are one of the many products designed in recent years to inexpensively create a cozier more modern environment. The options for what to use as a garage floor covering are vast. Most home improvement companies offer a wide selection. Customers with vague and even specific tastes are sure to find the right fit for their home. Among some of the options for garage flooring are: tile, porcelain tile, epoxy coatings, carpet, carpet tiles, or fabric mats. Aside from these, there are even soft covering, wood flooring, resilient flooring, and seamless chemical flooring options.
With such a wide field it is important for people who want to ‘floor’ their garage to be pointed in the right direction. For safety reasons, it is more important for homeowners to hire professional flooring workers to install any and all flooring options. Without a professional team of workers, homeowners and loved ones are potentially exposed to present and future dangerous conditions. For example, if a homeowner decides to install a vinyl floor in their garage there is a procedure they follow.
They’ll measure their garage, go to their local hardware store, talk to the cashier or associate to get tips on flooring, and then install the floor with hopes that they did everything the right way. What they might fail to realize is that vinyl flooring can be dangerous if not handled by professionals. PVC is the ingredient that makes vinyl flexible. It is also extremely toxic and can be dangerous. If professionals don’t properly gas out the harmful chemicals before installation, the safety of everyone in the household becomes at risk.
Without a doubt, garage floor coverings are a great addition to any house. If they are installed properly by professionals, most families can expect to enjoy their high quality flooring for years to come. Thankfully, with it being professionally done, the family also has the knowledge that the health and happiness of their family is not on the line.

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.
