Don’t Let Your Garage Be An Afterthought
Improvements to the house are an integral part of being a homeowner. Whether its a simple paint job or a complete renovation, maintaining and improving your home is always an important task. Unfortunately, many individuals overlook the garage. Even though it is not always considered part of the living space, the garage incurs the most wear and tear over time and eventually has to be updated. One simple solution to keeping your garage in good shape is the application of epoxy garage flooring. With this inexpensive addition to the garage, your entire home will reap the benefits.
If you’ve ever seen an untreated garage floor, you know what the surface looks like after years or even months of use. Dirt from outside gets into the garage and covers the floor. A car leaves tread marks from where it enters and exits the garage. Possibly the worst factor is the deep oil stains that happen from any parked vehicle. When you decide on epoxy flooring, your garage floor can repel both oil and dirt and make cleaning out off the surface an easy task. In addition, those stains from oil will not be an issue anymore because of the coating’s tight seal. You can easily keep your garage floor clean with the addition of an epoxy treatment.
The garage is traditionally associated with parking your car, but modern garages are used for storage and even everyday use. Heavy items such as free weights or lawn equipment are kept in the garage, and you might even use the space as an extra room for recreation. If something were to fall and create a severe impact with an untreated garage floor, it can possibly crack or dent the surface. Repairing or replacing your garage floor after contact damage is incredibly expensive. Simply having it treated with epoxy coating is an effective to prevent damage and keeping the floor pristine.
You might not think of the weather impacting your garage as much as an outdoor space, but the elements can take their toll on the floor as well. The UV rays of the sun will deteriorate the appearance of your garage floor over time, with windows causing an uneven look across the surface. Debris from wind or flooding from excessive water can possibly impact the garage floor, possibly making it soft and susceptible to cracking. An epoxy floor coating protects against both UV rays and water damage, keeping your floor looking great even when mother nature is being harsh.
The best part of using epoxy flooring as a solution for your garage is the value it adds to your home. Your entire household is an investment, making the upkeep and renovation of any space an important project. Epoxy coating protects the garage floor and helps it to last longer than normal. The addition gives lasting appeal to potential buyers and a better property value if your home ever hits the market. Going with epoxy flooring for your garage is a solid investment and is well worth the expense.

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.
