Create a New Room in Your Home with Garage Flooring
Space in any home can be a premium. Many homeowners just like you find they need to look for more space in their homes as their families expand. A new baby may bring with her the need for all kinds of equipment such as a stroller and a high chair that needs to be stored properly. A homeowner may also want to have extra space so they can have a place to gather on weekends and relax or provide an extra bedroom for visiting guests. When considering an expansion, many people find that it makes sense to consider an existing garage space for an entirely new room.
Easy Access to Space
Using a garage for an extra room can be the perfect solution. Many people do not use all of their garage space, they may have a three car garage and only have a single car. Or there may be ample street parking, making it easy for the person to park right next to their homes. A garage space is often right next to the house, making it easy to get access to it from a kitchen or an outer room. Many garages also have additional outside access via a separate door, making it even easier to use the space as an extra room.
One of the most important steps when using a garage for extra space is proper use of the right flooring. A standard garage space will have flooring in place. However, that flooring may be in poor condition. Over the years, the flooring may have been stained as a result of repeated oil from cars and other vehicles that are commonly stored there. Floors in any given garage may need to be entirely redone in order to make the space useful as part of the planned new room.
Garage Floor Coverings
Fortunately, having the flooring in the garage is much easier than many people think. Many people find that they can have their garage floor redone at less expense and less inconvenience than they might have thought. An epoxy garage floor coating can be the ideal solution to help make a garage floor look brand new again. This kind of floor coating helps protect the flooring against stains and provides a seal that makes the floor strong and soft enough to walk on in bare feet at the same time. A new coating on the floor can also make the floor look great at the same time.
Working with a Professional
Applying a garage floor coating on your own can be very tricky. Many things can go wrong. This is one of many reasons why many homeowners find it very helpful to hire an expert professional to do the job for them. The professional will be someone who frequently works with such chemicals and knows exactly how to apply them to the garage floor. The result will be floors that look great and allows the homeowner the kind of extra space they need in their house.

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.
