Considering Epoxy as a Safety Measure
It does not take long for a garage floor to become ugly looking. You park heavy vehicles, equipment and all sorts of toys in the garage, and the floor takes all the beating. As the years go on, your garage floor may become a hazard to your safety.
With all the oils spills, chemicals and different detergents you put on your garage floor, the protective coating you may have once had on the floor, has now disappeared. Your garage floor is most likely slippery and even damaged a bit from all the heavy cars sitting on the floor.
Heavy cars and equipment can cause crevices and cracks throughout the floor. Heavy equipment can also cause problems over the years just sitting on your garage floor. A garage floor that ends up with deep cracks may even create a problem with the structure of the garage. Once the structure of the garage has been compromised, you will have a major repair job on your hands. It is better to fix the problems in your garage while they are small before they become major expenses. A garage epoxy coating will eliminate your problems and brighten up your garage.
If you do have a garage floor that has cracks and is becoming slippery, there are professional garage floor experts that can help you make your garage safe. Before an accident happens, have an expert explain to you how he can reinforce your garage floor with an epoxy coating to make it safer and beautiful again.
A good epoxy coating will give you the slip resistance coverage to keep everyone safe while using the garage. The epoxy coating will sink into the concrete and give your floor a tough finish, better durability, and keep it from pealing, flaking and cracking. A final seal coat will keep your epoxy floor surface ready to handle any sorts of weight and traffic.
Most epoxy garage floors can be installed in a day. The experts will make sure they take care of the cracks and flaws in the floor before applying the epoxy. The original surface has to be repaired and cleaned really well before the epoxy is applied. A special epoxy product for repairs is used. All the imperfections can be fixed and the floor can be sanded down smoothly.
A new epoxy garage floor will never need waxing or any demanding upkeep. It will hold up to all the heavy traffic, chemical spills and kids running their bikes in and out, for a long time. You can have your garage brightened up with a new epoxy coating, put on by a professional expert.
Your garage floor can also become a beautiful floor to look at by using color epoxy to match different styles. The professional experts can wow you with bold solids, a granite or terrazzo look or give your floor a special colored flake coating. You can even get a splashy metallic epoxy coating to enhance the look and make your garage floor easier to clean.

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.
