Epoxy Flooring for Garage Floor Options Instead of Pure Concrete
Most people who have homes with garages will use their garage more frequently than they do other areas of the home. For most people, the garage is not simply the place to park their car but also the area where they place their lawn and garden items, where tools are kept and where they will work on their cars when need be. For this reason, you want your garage floor to be easily maintained. One of the best options for someone who owns their home is epoxy flooring.
The benefit of epoxy style flooring is to protect your garage floor as well as the ability it offers to improve the appearance of the garage itself. Here are some other added benefits to using this type of flooring.
Will Help Protect Your Floor From the Elements
One big problem that people have with concrete floors is that it is easily separable from elements. What that means is that when you have a concrete floor and the ground beneath your garage shifts due to weather and the shifting of the earth. When this occurs, your concrete floor will showcase cracks, can crumble and even cause more damage to other items in your garage. When you apply the epoxy floor to the garage, the epoxy is going to help to ensure that your items are at less risk of being damaged. The water that could seep into your garage from the cracked foundation is not as much of a big deal with the foundation covered in epoxy.
Protection from Stains
One problem that people have in their garage is stains from things like motor oil and liquids that could cause a stain. If you keep paint in your garage from repainting a room in your home, if the paint spills over in your garage, the epoxy floor is easier to clean than what your concrete floor is. Spills are easier to clean as well when you have epoxy floors.
Improvement to the Look of Your Floor
If your garage is home to many neighborhood get together’s, the appearance of the epoxy flooring is better than what your concrete floor is going to look. Many people who come to your home will take note as to how nice the epoxy flooring is and will compliment on the appearance versus what your concrete floor looks like. Your floor will have more to the appearance than just being shiny. It will cover nicely and can be done in more than just one color. You are able to customize the appearance of your garage through the colors of your favorite sports team as well as to a favorite color.
There are many different types of flooring that can be used in your garage but the one that most people are comfortable using and comes back to is epoxy floors. It improves the appearance, can handle stains and is easily customized, that is why epoxy floors are far better than any other option out there.

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.
