Epoxy Flooring Can Stop Damage Related To Your Vehicle
If you own any type of vehicle, you’re already dealing with expenses just to keep the thing running. A car or truck is necessary for many individuals to get around, but it can also have a negative impact on your garage space. Fortunately, the simple addition of epoxy garage flooring can help to keep your automobile from wreaking havoc on surfaces. In addition, the epoxy coating has the ability to protect your flooring from many other sources of damage. You can expect numerous benefits from adding epoxy to the garage floor. Each benefit equals more value to the condition of your house.
The most egregious damage that your garage floor faces most likely comes from oil. Even new cars with regular maintenance can sometimes leave drops or spots of oil on the floor. Concrete is naturally porous and will absorb the oil, making it a tough mess to clean. However, simply adding epoxy flooring can take away the frustration of having to deal with oil stains in the first place. The composition of an epoxy coating forms a tight seal to the floor and repels all kinds of staining, including oil. If you’ve ever gone through the ordeal of trying to remediate an oily garage floor, adding epoxy to the surface can be a valuable update.
Your car’s tires may not be the biggest offender, but they will undoubtedly leave their mark every once in a while. Tires are designed to stick to the road and give traction to the vehicle, which means that the rubber material breaks down over time. When this process occurs, the tires can leave marks that are highly visible on smooth surfaces. If your garage floor is exposed to tread marks, it will become worn down and dirty looking. Epoxy coating can prevent these marks from accumulating on your floor. In addition, cleaning the surface of the treated garage floor is easy.
Another source of damage to your garage floor doesn’t come directly from your car, but the tools you use for repairs and tune ups. Millions of owners perform their own work on their vehicles, but the floor of the garage can suffer as a result. Heavy, metal tools and equipment that roll across or drop on the floor can possibly leave scratches or chips in the concrete. Epoxy flooring will provide protection against impact damage, especially when it is applied in multiple layers. You can rest easy knowing that your car is maintained and your floor is kept looking like new.
An estimated 95 percent of Americans own a car, and 85 percent of these individuals use that car for regular travel to work. If you fall into this vast majority, you’re likely to see the undesirable side effects of having a vehicle. While you may have to take care of your automobile on a constant basis, you shouldn’t have to worry about your garage flooring as well. Adding epoxy coating will save you time and money by keeping the floor of the garage clean and preventing vehicle-related damage.

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.
