Epoxy Flooring for Gray Concrete Floors
Are you sick of the cold, damp, cracked concrete garage floor that you have? Do you want to finally “finish” your garage, so you can entertain guests in style? Epoxy flooring is a hot new way for you to create a beautiful, durable, long-lasting garage surface.
“Boring Damp Gray Concrete Floors”
Have you ever been working on your antique car on your concrete floor and noticed how cold, damp and smelly the environment was? Damp concrete floors can hold in a lot of moisture, leading to a heavily musty smell. You might also have sharp, jagged edges if the concrete cracks.
“Wireless Internet Garage Entertainment Center”
Wouldn’t you be embarrassed to invite your important business clients over to see your classical car, if your garage was damp, smelly and uninviting? They might even trip over a crack protruding from your floor.
You can connect your home or business Internet throughout your entire property. Set up a large-screened television, computer or radio out in your garage and enjoy the interior environment while you work on your cars. You can enjoy your hobby in comfort.
Nowadays, the top residential and commercial garages are replacing their old, outdated garage floors with modern epoxy flooring. This is a heat-treated resin that binds to create a solid, cushioned, easy-to-clean garage surface.
“Beautiful Epoxy Colors Available”
You can change the color of the flakes in the resin to get exactly the shade you want. Metallic color schemes are particularly popular, along with a variety of different standard paint chip colors. You can even add special aggregate to create a non-skid surface. Another unique coating can protect against “hot tire pickup.” How many concrete surfaces offer this much variety?
Colored concrete usually starts to crumble after a couple of years. Epoxy has a special curing process that makes the substance bind together to create a solid surface. This epoxy flooring is resistant to oil, gasoline, anti-freeze and brake fluids. They won’t stain the resin, simply wipe spills up with a mop and everything is good as new.
“Renovate Old Home”
Some experienced carpenters like to purchase old homes, renovate them and make a little profit through “house flipping.” Upgrading the garage can be a great way to add value to the resale price. This will especially attract wealthy buyers who might have extensive antique car collections.
The process for application of the beautiful epoxy flooring is quite extensive. First, the old concrete floor must be made level – holes must be filled in. Then, professionals will need to perform floor grinding, shot blasting or acid etching for surface preparation.
Since there are a number of chemicals that need to be combined for the perfect epoxy floor, you should find certified garage floor resurfacing services to ensure the job is done correctly and safely. The highest quality epoxy garage floors may involve a number of different layers, including substrate, primer and the top epoxy coat. Create a durable, absorbent, chemical-resistant epoxy garage floor that will make everyone happy.

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.
