Benefits of Epoxy Flooring
It can be difficult to find a floor solution that can withstand chemicals, stains, and spills. Almost every kind of flooring has some form of disadvantage. However, epoxy floors seem to have more advantages and fewer drawbacks. Here are the primary benefits of epoxy floor coating.
When compared to the traditional garage floors, garage floor epoxy looks bright and professional. Its appearance alone will entice you to use it. It also has a smooth and even surface that makes it very simple to sweep and maintain. Not much sticks on garage floor epoxy. Thus, it is very easy to clean up a mess.
Compared to other types of floors, it is tough to beat the cost of the epoxy floor. Since you can install it over concrete and other types of floors, the cost of installation is quite a bit lower than others. Price is one of the greatest and most immediate benefits of epoxy floors.
Epoxy flooring is quite resistant to just about everything—gasoline, transmission fluid, bleach, cleansers, oil, and much more. This is one of the principal reasons it is often used in garages and the automotive industry. Apart from withstanding chemical spills, an epoxy floor coating is also water and heat-resistant. It is impenetrable to most chemical spills with no adverse effects on the surface. Another advantage is that an epoxy floor coating is resistant to germs and bacteria. Thus, sanitizing it is very easy. This is why epoxy is the perfect choice for clinics and hospitals.
An epoxy garage floor coating is distinctly valued for its strength, and it lasts longer than many other types of floors. Concrete is the only substance that can beat it, but it must be properly sealed and maintained. Furthermore, an epoxy floor coating requires concrete beneath it anyway. Thus, an epoxy garage floor coating renders the concrete exceptionally durable. It also has the advantage of anti-fatigue. Thus, it can be set on the cement without using glue or mortar.
Epoxy floors protect the underlying concrete from stains, moisture, cracks, and grease. In the end, you can save a lot of money on the maintenance and cleaning costs by doing away with the need to clean the carpet or grout. They also have a very fair price for the level and duration of protection they provide.
Epoxy floor coatings last longer than many other types of floors. When properly installed, they can last for many decades without peeling or cracking. Besides their durability, their lifespan makes them popular for industrial and commercial use.
Industrial plants, factories, and warehouses can benefit from epoxy floor coatings because they reduce the wear and tear on transport vehicles. They also allow for faster movement of materials and prevent floor damage. These benefits translate into more money into the business and less expenditure on repair and renovation.
Epoxy floors have many advantages because they look attractive, are very affordable, durable, and last longer than other floor types. However, for safety and excellent results, ensure that you consult a professional for the job when you want to install an epoxy floor in your garage or business premise.

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.
