Choose Advanced Technology and Superior Materials to Install an Epoxy Garage Floor
An epoxy garage floor can revolutionize the appearance, durability and utility of a garage. These days, fewer and fewer garages are being used to store the family car. People are converting garage space into workout rooms, auto shops and garden facilities. When it comes to creative ways to put that spacious garage to better use, the sky is the limit. Now it’s time to do something about that ugly, dirty and stained garage floor.
The application of epoxy floor coating can turn a residential or commercial garage floor into a colorful showroom for fun or business. Epoxy coatings provide an affordable flooring alternative for entrepreneurs, hobbyists and everyday homebodies. The available color patterns and design styles allow home and business owners to literally transform any boring concrete floor into an exciting room or facility.
Although there are paint products that contain epoxy, epoxy floor coating is not paint. Adding epoxy to paint may offer increased durability, but it’s still paint. Epoxy coating, on the other hand, is a serious thermosetting resin. Epoxy is created by combining polyamine hardener with epoxide resin. The polyamine hardener is what makes epoxy extremely tough and durable. An epoxy coating actually goes through a curing process, unlike paint which merely has to dry. The exothermic curing process forms interlocking polymer structures to produce an unbelievably tough flooring surface.
An epoxy garage floor coating is much thicker and more durable than paint. It should be mentioned, however, that a properly prepared surface is one of the keys to the proper application of an epoxy floor coating product. Investing in a do it yourself epoxy flooring kit often leads to disappointing results for this very reason. A properly installed epoxy finish should resist damage caused by chemicals, impacts, chipping, abrasions and stains.
Epoxy Flooring Benefits
Epoxy floor coating can do wonders for a dingy garage floor crawling with unsightly spider cracks. An epoxy topical sealer also gets rid of all that irritating concrete dust. Believe it or not, garage floors actually shed concrete dust that is regularly tracked into the house. The dust also collects on anything that is stored in the garage, including vehicles, canned vegetables and camping equipment. Epoxy surface coatings are easy to clean and naturally resistant to moisture buildup.
The possibilities are almost endless when it comes to installing an epoxy topical sealer on a garage floor. Variegated color patterns, color flakes and nonskid surfaces are only a few of the enticing possibilities. Cleaning up oil and other automotive fluids is unbelievably efficient with an epoxy floor. Moreover, the permanent elimination of oil stains and the smell of gasoline are bound to ensure marital bliss for many years to come.
Depending on the desired finish, epoxy floors can brighten any environment by reflecting light in every direction. Maintenance free epoxy floors can add value to any home or business. The use of advanced technology and superior materials will ensure that an epoxy floor coating endures far into the future.

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.
