Does Your Garage Floor Need Repair?
When it comes to garage floor coatings Westchester PA homeowners have a wide range of options. Moat homeowners dislike the bare cement present in most garages; the cement floor stains easily, and it cracks far more readily than other floors. There is also how drab the gray floor is as well. Basically, a plain cement floor is hard to clean, difficult to repair if something happens to it, and is hardly the most attractive possible floor. Most garages are in need of repair, and it can thus benefit from some sort of repair; however, usually those repairs are not easy to do. An epoxy covering can seal the cement while fixing the problem.
The problem with repairing the garage is the nature of cement itself. Once damaged it needs to be replaced in its entirety, or at least replacing a segment is almost expensive as replacing the entire floor. There is also the issue that a botched repair can create other problems, especially for those areas that receive a lot of rain as cracks in the floor can let in the water. This can create the potential for water damage for anything left in the garage, especially those memories made of paper or cloth. Repairing the garage floor right needs to be done right. Using epoxy to cover the crack repairs the cement effectively as well as dealing with any potential leaks.
Of course, any improvement of the house not only makes it easier to sell later on, but also allows the current owner to increase the price of the home when it is placed on the market. Having the floor done professionally not only makes for a much more attractive flooring, but makes it safer and easier to clean. Given the potential for error and how expensive cleaning up that error can be, not to mention the safety issues involved when it comes to dealing with epoxy (most notably the vapors and dealing with an extremely hot substance), it is highly advised that only professionals be allowed to do the surfacing.
However, the flooring is well worth the price. When it comes to doing a good garage floor covering Westchester PA offers a wide variety of options. The floor itself does not need to be done in a basic black covering as may well be imagined, but can be done in a variety of different textures and colors. At the very least it can be done as to mimic a variety of different floor textures ranging from granite to slightly pebbly. The epoxy surface not only ends up looking great, but resists damage and can be cleaned rather easily and resists most stains.
By repairing the floor using an epoxy of some sort, the garage can be easily repaired and actually be improved. It can be used as a rec room, an additional television room, or just a place to send the kids when they get too rambunctious in the main house. With the right garage floor covering Westchester PA garages become a great place to do more than fix cars.

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.
