Epoxy Flooring Has the Versatility to Fit Your Upgrade
A garage space is traditionally used as a place to park and wasn’t given much thought beyond that. These days, savvy homeowners are realizing that they can add value to the house by upgrading the garage into a clean and comfortable living space. If you’re interested in making some of these improvements to your garage, epoxy garage coatings are an integral part of the process. No matter what you decide to do with the area, epoxy flooring has its advantages in every situation. This special coating is a smart investment for all homeowners giving that garage a facelift.
If you decide to turn your garage into a new entertainment area, you’ll immediately notice the advantages of epoxy flooring when you clean. This type of coating is strong enough to repel all sorts of dirt and debris and can even stand up to oil stains. You’ll have an incredibly easy time cleaning up when a drink spills or food drops on the floor. The composition of epoxy coating as an adhesive allows it to prevent stains and keep your new living space looking sharp.
One of the most popular uses of an updated garage is turning the space into a fitness center. If you are one of millions of people who use free weights while exercising, you might be concerned about a dropped weight ruining the floor. The reality is epoxy is so durable that it can resist impact damage from heavy objects. This coating reduces cracks and dents from all sorts of impact. In fact, the same benefits apply to any use you find for your new garage space. Sharp tools, machinery, and lawn equipment all can stress or damage the untreated floor. However, epoxy has the capability to handle these items with ease.
Concrete is an excellent building material used for various projects. However, this material can sometimes become damaged for various reasons. If the underlying ground shifts the concrete might easily become cracked. In addition, varying temperatures and humidity have a considerable impact on how concrete expands and contracts. Fortunately, you do not have to be concerned with concrete’s issues affecting your epoxy coating. The coating is flexible enough that it will move with the floor if it happens to shift slightly. Epoxy will also remain in place no matter how the weather is or how damp the concrete becomes. Its sturdiness is a reason that so many people have turned to epoxy to upgrade the garage.
In addition to the benefits of its practical characteristics, epoxy flooring just looks great. Any homeowner with an untreated garage floor has probably noticed the surface appearance degrade over time. This is normal for a floor without a coating, but it can be prevented altogether. Using epoxy as a treatment on your garage floor will enhance its appearance and keep it looking like new for a long time. You’ll immediately gain the advantage of having your floor protected, but you will also enjoy the sight as you walk out into your garage. Epoxy flooring is an all-around enhancement for your home.

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.
