All of Your Options with Epoxy
Many homeowners are looking into purchasing an epoxy coating for some flooring in their house which is a sage decision. Epoxy flooring can be a great asset to a home, especially yours. However, it’s also good to know about epoxy before you hire a professional epoxy service. This way, you are aware of how epoxy works and why it is so loved by the homeowners who have it.
First of all, there are a few types of epoxy to choose from. There is a 100% epoxy choice as well as a water based epoxy. In addition, there is also a solvent based epoxy. Each one of these options offers some of the same great benefits, but also they have different qualities that set them apart. When choosing which kind of epoxy to utilize, you also need to evaluate your needs. Look at your budget, your surface, your desired level of durability.
If you have recently purchased a home that you plan to live in for a long time, then 100% solid epoxy is probably the best choice for you. Although it tends to be the costliest option, its durability pays for itself. Most professionals would recommend that you stick with a 100% epoxy for this reason. This type of epoxy is meant to last upwards of 20 years without touch-ups, and it does just that. It will still need to be cleaned semi-regularly in order to upkeep its shine. The strength of this epoxy is great for resisting tire streaks, chemical reactions, stains, and scratches.
Water based epoxy is the more economically friendly choice. It spreads a lot thinner than a normal epoxy so it makes more similarly to a sealant than a 100% epoxy formula. A water based epoxy is fantastic to upgrade your home before selling, so as to add value. It is also great for a home that you don’t plan on being in for more than 10 years. This way, you can spend less but get the same effect for the time you will be there. It still protects against all of the same things that 100% epoxy does, just for a shorter amount of time.
So, you can see that there are multiple epoxy options for different reasons. So, it’s up to you to evaluate your options and decide which option is the best for you. Between your budget, desired durability, and other factors you can decide what epoxy flooring of West Chester, PA is right for your home with the help of your local epoxy professional!

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.
