Choosing Floor Coverings for Concrete Floors
Whether you’re looking to remodel your basement or make your garage the space it was always meant to be, it’s important to choose the right upgrades for your concrete floor. After all, the spaces where you spend the most time deserve to not only look great, but also perform under pressure!
High traffic spaces like basements, recreational rooms, or garages need floor coverings that can stand up to frequent use while being easy to clean and maintain. If you’re looking to add floor covering over your concrete, be sure to consider the options that might best fit your home or workspace:
How Will the Space Be Used?
Concrete is a popular flooring option for a variety of spaces, but when looking at adding additional floor covering, take a look at the space overall and how its used. For example, in a finished basement carpeting or laminate hardwood may be a great pick for giving your room a more finished look. On the other hand, garages will benefit from epoxy floor covering for concrete floors that can stand up to stains and messes that come from your work bench or vehicles.
– How much exposure will your flooring have to the elements?
– Will the space be exposed to spills or moisture?
– How easy will the flooring be to clean once you’ve selected a material?
How Much Space Do You Have to Cover?
Many renovations to your space often come down to cost. Keeping within a budget for your project is going to be key, so begin by mapping out the square footage of your space for coverage and then pricing out the cost of each material. Ceramic tile, carpeting, or wood may bust your budget while vinyl or epoxy floor coatings for concrete may be the better option.
At Floorguard, we offer a popular and affordable epoxy option for both indoor and outdoor spaces when you want to refinish your concrete flooring. Contact us today to learn more about our epoxy floor coverings for concrete floors.

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.
