Comparing Your Options for Concrete Floor Coverings
Almost all garage floors are made of concrete. Many homeowners decide to complete a garage floor resurfacing project with carpet, panels that snap together, paint, or other materials. However, most of these products don’t provide much extra, long-lasting, structural strength to concrete. Enter epoxy floor coverings. Epoxy is an up and coming product in the floor covering world. Many homeowners are beginning to choose epoxy over other floor covering solutions because of the long list of benefits it has.
Most homeowners choose to cover their garage floor because it is unsightly. Between cracks, holes, stains, and other blemishes, concrete can become a very unappealing flooring choice. So, to solve the problem, many homeowners simply masked the problem, but this didn’t actually solve the problem at hand. This is why epoxy was introduced to the market.
While carpet can somewhat absorb possible stains and maybe cushion a falling object and preventing a bad crack or chip, epoxy is completely cleanable so anything you spill will come up and never stain your concrete. It is also incredibly durable. This means that no matter what you drop, it will not chip or break the floor. Paint is often chosen to enhance the looks of a garage. With so many colors to choose from, you can see why so many homeowners would choose this route. However, epoxy can be completely customized. If you want a certain color, a design, or even your favorite football team’s mascot on your garage floor, you can do that. Epoxy is customizable start to finish. If you work in your garage a lot, you can even ask for a non-slip epoxy finish to prevent slips and falls in your garage workshop.
A popular choice, lately, has been puzzle-like boards that snap together in a configuration that sits on top of your garage’s floor. However, this can easily be tripped over and moved around. This is another reason why epoxy is your best bet because garage floor epoxy permeates and adheres to the concrete floor beneath it and will never budge. Epoxy strengthens your concrete from the inside out while covering up stains and cracks to give your garage a much more appealing, durable floor. Epoxy is actually so durable that it won’t need a touch-up or a repair for many, many years! Unlike paint, which will need a touch-up yearly, if not, semi-annually.
This is why it is best to choose epoxy if you are in the business to replace, resurface, and repair your garage floors. If you’re tired of seeing a stained, cracked garage floor, then call a professional epoxy service now. They will have your garage floor feeling safe and looking brand new, in no-time!

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.
