Advantages of Choosing a Garage Floor Epoxy Coating
Durability and Resilience
Besides looking great, epoxy also offers a hard and thick coating that is resilient to stains, impacts, chemicals, chipping and abrasions. The floor coating is very durable such that you will not worry over any tools falling hard on the floor surface. The thick coating offers a great cover over the floor imperfections like spider cracks and concrete flaws.
Epoxy is classified as a topical sealer thereby making it possess some anti-dusting qualities. Most of the dust in a garage emanates from the powder shed by the cement floor. Normal traffic on the garage floor usually leads to dust collecting on your cars, storage items and tool benches while some of it finds its way into your house. You will not suffer from dust once your garage floor gets an epoxy coating.
Epoxy is a topical coating and that naturally makes it to be moisture resistant. This is a great advantage especially if you live in areas that are snowy. It usually makes it easier for you to clean the road salts and icy brines that tend to collect on floors during winter. A little water and mild soap will go a long way in helping you clean the surface well.

It is for this reason that this floor coating requires to be done only by professional and certified service providers who should be highly experienced in epoxy coating. There are so many low-quality epoxy floors out there and using unqualified professionals will leave you with a sub-standard epoxy coating that will not offer all the above advantages.

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.
