Create an Inviting Atmosphere Using Epoxy Floors
The concrete floors of the garage are usually neglected, but over the course of time, we will always get tired of how dull and boring it looks. So in order to add a touch of live to the concrete gray floors of your garage or even basement or home office, the best way is to apply epoxy flooring. This will not only create an inviting atmosphere by giving the space a stylish showroom look, as it will also provide it with the protection that it needs so it may live longer. On top of that, the epoxy coating is also the solution for other problems such as slippery surfaces. It is also better than the regular polyurethane or acrylic paints as it gives the floor the protection it needs against the UV rays of the sun.
Epoxy is a durable material that is resistant to chemical exposure, corrosive materials and atmospheric pollution. This is why it is perfect for the garage floor because it will leave your floor unaffected by any chemical spills, oil or grease stains that might leak from your car. Due to the fact that epoxy floors are designed to overcome almost every obstacle, starting from the hardest stains to enduring tough environmental situations, it is used in almost every heavy duty facility such as kennels, hospitals, garages, factories, showrooms warehouses and any other institutions that demand a heavy duty floor. This is why choosing to install epoxy flooring for your garage is certainly a smart investment as it will help you create an aesthetic appeal that will stay for more than seven years.
When you are shopping for epoxy garage floor coverings, make sure to look for a brand company that supplies a high quality epoxy, as there are many cheap brands on the market that are of poor quality. The epoxies should also match you specifications and your needs. For example, some epoxies come with extra resistance to chemical solutions and others have impact resistant properties.
When it comes to epoxy garage floor, there are 3 types. These types are 100% solid epoxies, water based epoxies and solvent based epoxies. 100% solids are the strongest and therefore, they are the most expensive kind. As for the solvent bases ones, they are not as tough as solids as they compromise of 40 to 60% solids. Lastly, the water based epoxies, which are the least durable, on the other hand, they are very user friendly which makes them ideal for non professional use. Of course, if you want the ultimate protection, you should go with the 100% solids, on the other hand, water based epoxies are more than enough for residential use.
The key to the longevity of the epoxy floors is the installation. If it is applied correctly, it will last longer than you can imagine. This is why it is always advised to deal with experienced epoxy installers who can get the job done for you perfectly and in the least amount of time possible.

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.
