Caring For Your Overlooked Garage Floor
The floor in your garage is one of the most neglected areas of your home, and you must ensure that your garage floor remains in good repair for years to come. Your home’s value will drop when the floor has not bee cared for, and you must find a contractor who is expert in applying epoxy garage floor coatings. The coating for the floor helps keep the floor in good condition while improving the functionality of the room. This article explains how a professional will help you transform your old garage floor.
The Floor Must Be Cleaned And Repaired
The floor in your garage is likely not very clean, but cleaning the floor will reveal cracks that have occurred over time. The epoxy garage floor coating you use will not cover up these cracks properly, and you need a professional contractor to fill in the cracks for you. A contractor will fill each crack completely, seal the cracks and sand over the cracks to make them level with the floor. This service is not something you can do on your own, and you must ask the contractor to help you before they seal the floor.
Why Use Epoxy?
The epoxy coating you use on the floor must be applied by a professional with a roller. The epoxy will quickly coat the floor in a heavy substance that helps protect the floor from foot traffic and damage. You are driving your cars into the garage every day, and you must ensure that the garage floor is protected. Your diligence in this matter will allow you to keep the floor in better condition, and the floor may be cleaned quickly as a result.
Transforming The Room
The garage you have today may become a brand new room after you coat the floor in an epoxy. You have designs for the room that may include a completely finished look. You are free to turn the garage into a workroom or playroom. You may do anything you like to the room, but the floors must be sealed first. You cannot carpet the room or put down hardwood floors unless you have sealed the floor, and you cannot walk comfortably in the room unless the floor has been sealed. The traditional garage floor is grimy with a proper sealant.
Your Garage Becomes Valuable Again
Your garage will become valuable again when you have invested in sealing the floor. The sealant you use for your floor will help you create value in the room again. Buyers for your home will look past the garage if the room is dirty or grimy. A brand new garage floor will make your home much more valuable because it is clear you did quite a bit of work on the house.
Contact a professional painter or contractor to seal your garage floor today. The room will become much more useful, and you will add value to your home at the same time. You are ensuring that your garage is a usable space.

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.
