Do You Spend a Lot of Time in Your Garage?
With so many garage floor epoxy coating systems available on the market today, finding one that fits your budget can become quite daunting. Epoxy garage floor coverings are one of the most durable finishes you can apply. It can instantly change your tired, drab concrete into a highly polished floor. An epoxy garage floor coating is hard wearing and easy to clean, creating a seamless surface that is resilient to chipping, stains and surface scrapes. The thicker epoxy coating does a great job of covering small cracks and flaws in the concrete.
Because epoxy is a topical sealer, it also protects against the dust in a garage that a cement floor can shed. Normal wear and tear on concrete can form a dusty powder that covers your cars, tool benches, and storage containers. It can even be tracked into the house. Epoxy is naturally moisture resistant which is an added benefit for people who live in the North where record snowfalls can be had. Road salt can be easily cleaned up during the winter months instead of corroding the bare concrete.

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.
