Common Misconceptions about Epoxy Flooring, Part II
In part I of this blog we debunked the misconceptions that epoxy concrete floor coverings are hard to maintain, not worth the investment for a garage, and that they are the same thing as a paint covering. Here are a few more misconceptions about epoxy flooring:
You can install epoxy flooring on your own: Floorguard’s technicians have the tools and training to properly install your epoxy floor coating so that it lasts for years to come. Attempting to install the coating yourself could result in defects or a floor that needs to be replaced soon after, costing more money in the long run.
It’s an expensive flooring solution: Opposed to other flooring types that need to be reapplied or replaced more frequently, epoxy floor coating seals to the concrete below it and resists damage, meaning it will last for many years.
Epoxy floor coating is slippery: While an epoxy concrete floor has a highly reflective shine, it is not slippery, and additional slip-resistant options can even be added to your coating for additional safety. (Bonus: The high shine of the floor reflects the room’s lighting, making it even brighter without needing to add additional lights.)
If you still have questions about whether an epoxy floor coating is the right option for your home or business, the team at Floorguard is happy to answer them! Visit us at Floorguard.com to learn more.

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.
