Are You Allergic to Dirt and Dust? Epoxy Garage Flooring Can Help
Are you constantly sneezing every time you get out of your car in the garage? Is your garage just simply a place where you throw everything that doesn’t have a place otherwise? There are simple epoxy flooring options that can dramatically change the way that you look at your garage.
Epoxy flooring is a type of garage floor covering that transforms your garage floor from a dusty, cracked, and stained slab of concrete – to a surface that you wouldn’t mind walking barefoot on. The permanent epoxy bond adds a dust-free sheen that prevents all of the dust and dirt from collecting on your garage floor. Spills require just a quick wipe to clean rather than sawdust, bleaches, and scrubbing on your hands and knees.
That being said, it is a messy process that can be nearly impossible to fix if you don’t get it right the first time. Fortunately, there are professionals in the area that can apply these protective garage floor coatings and get it right the first time.
Some people confuse epoxy flooring with being a special type of paint. While it appears to be the same as paint, it is actually a resin that sets and hardens as a result of a chemical reaction when the resin is mixed with a polyamine hardener. The result is more of a protective shell, than simply a brushed on coating. This means no more tough stains, small visible cracks in the floor, or dust that is a byproduct of concrete itself.
Epoxy flooring forms a seal over the concrete that traps the dust underneath, and helps to make sweeping up dirt a more productive task than simply stirring concrete dust into the air. Suddenly you won’t mind spending time in the garage. Tough winters aren’t as tough on this protective barrier as they are on bare concrete floors. Cleaning up the mud and slush from a big storm is a breeze with epoxy flooring. Say goodbye to muddy and dirty winter garage floors!
Why not get the most out of ALL of your house? Epoxy garage flooring makes your garage a much more appealing area to spend time in. You should take just as much pride in your garage as you do to the rest of your house. After all, it’s all a part of the mortgage payment at the end of the day too.
A new and updated garage can breathe new life into a part of your home that watery eyes and sneezing have had you avoiding, and turn it into a space that you want to show off to friends and neighbors. Now you may even have the necessary space to tackle all of those around the house projects that you have been avoiding!

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.
