Epoxy Flooring: The Benefits of Epoxy
Epoxy flooring is a mix of various resins that combine with hardeners to make a plastic like substance known as epoxy. Epoxy can be made with different types of materials. This results in different types of flooring. Some people have probably seen epoxy flooring but was unaware of what it looked like.
Epoxy is available for commercial and industrial buildings. It can be used for outdoor settings as well as indoor settings. It is also available for patios, sidewalks, and porches. It is very resistant and is suitable for many different flooring options. Most people like epoxy because it is known to last. It can protect your concrete for years. It is resistant to mold, chemicals, and oil. It also helps to cover up any spots and imperfections that a floor may have. This is repaired before the epoxy is applied. Many people decide to get their basement and garages done with epoxy. If you epoxy your garage you don’t have to worry about spills and stains again.
There are different levels of durability when it comes to flooring. Make sure you choose the durability that best suits your needs. When your flooring is complete you will notice the durability and a wonderful finish. Getting your floor done with epoxy is a good way to offer protective measures to your floor. Epoxy keeps the floor from constant exposure. The flooring is offered in many different color treatments. It can be customized by adding paint chips. The paint chips help to create different looks. If you run a business it is a good idea to invest in your flooring. It helps to make a business safer. Most people put epoxy in high areas of traffic and in work areas. Epoxy is environmentally friendly and reduces costs due to it being low in maintenance.
If you have decided on the type of flooring you want then you may proceed to the next step. The next step would be to hire a professional. There is a lot of hard work that goes into epoxy flooring so it is not a good idea to do it yourself. A professional knows what type of epoxy works best for the area that you want done. If the epoxy is not applied properly then you will not get all the benefits. It requires special tools and techniques to perform the job that most people don’t have. Professionals can get the job done quickly and safe.

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.
