Epoxy flooring is an accumulation of epoxy resins
Epoxy flooring is an accumulation of epoxy resins that provide a durable and reliable means to cover the flooring inside of your garage. However, epoxy can been used in many different facets such as dental work, coating for metal fabrications, electrical insulation, and much more. Epoxy, for lack of a better term, is like the duct tape of the resin world in terms of its versatility and usability.
If you’ve ever taken a step into a higher end garage you may have noticed an elegant glass-like finish to the floor you’re walking on. This is one of the many reason so many individuals choose to use epoxy flooring within their space. It’s classy and highly versatile while providing water resistant properties that would often ruin a concrete floor.
Similarly, epoxy can be applied in a multitude of different styles and colors to fit the theme within a garage space. The garage is a workplace that takes a beating after a hard day’s work. Epoxy provides a resilient and durable floor surface that does not falter to dings, chips, scratches and heavy drops. It takes a lickin’ and keeps on kickin’ with whatever you can throw at it!
Seeking Professional Installation
Seeking a professional is always of the highest priority when laying down Epoxy in your garage. There are two chemical ingredients that go into the process – Polyepoxide and Epoxy resin. When the flooring starts to dry and harden up, fumes are emitted into the area that can be harmful to your health.
The particles in the air can lead to inflammation and buildup in the throat and the airways to the individuals in the area. Over time the fumes can lead to long term problems such as shallow breathing and Asthma. It’s highly recommended that you consult a company that takes the proper safety precautions and allows the space to ‘air out’ in a sense. The installers will often use high-tech masks and breathing equipment in order to keep the resin particles from flooding into their lungs.
The money you spend on consulting a professional company is pennies in comparison to the life-long problems associated with Asthma. Please, do yourself a favor and avoid following a D.I.Y. (do it yourself) method of applying Epoxy to your garage floor.

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.
