Epoxy Flooring – The Perfect Solution for Different Areas
There is an area in every home that is exposed constantly to the different elements such as the mud, the oil, dirt and the snow, this area is the garage. Due to this fact, it is important to make sure that the flooring of this area is strong enough in order to withstand the elements, and the foot and car traffic. The most popular garage floor coverings that are used are epoxy and rustoleum. These two options are great for covering the concrete flooring of the garage. If you are planning to implement any of them, you will first have to prepare the garage floor.
Garage floor epoxy coating is available in different colors and it might come as a surprise to some but this kind of flooring is not only suitable for garages as it can also be used around pool areas, driveways and patios. Epoxy can also be used for indoor spaces such as living rooms and office spaces. This is because there are many materials that can be added to the epoxy to enhance its appearance. This way, it is not just a highly durable floor covering but it is also a decorative flooring. These epoxy concrete resurfacing products can be shiny or they can be dim. If you are looking forward to having a shiny surface, you can look into the different polishing options that are available.
There are other options such as stained concrete, colored concrete and others. Whatever it is that you chose, it is vital to prepare the old concrete floor before applying anything. This does not only include cleaning the concrete floor as it also includes patching up the old concrete, which is not that difficult, it is in fact quite simple if you follow a few easy rules. These rules and steps will work for a simple crack repair or a complicated job. Despite being an easy job, it can take a lot of time. This is why it is advised to hire the services of a firm that specializes in garage floor epoxy coating. They will be able to patch the floor, clean it and make sure it is ready for the implementation process.
According to the location of the epoxy floor, some additions might be needed. For instance, if the epoxy concrete resurfacing product is going to be applied in an outdoors area that is regularly exposed to sunrays, a UV protective layer is essential. This is because over the course of time, the surface of the epoxy floor might start to yellow and it will lose all of its great qualities. The UV protective layer is placed on top of the finish layer of the epoxy.
If you find all of this overwhelming and you do not have enough time to patch up the cracks, clean the floor, choose the suitable epoxy and implement it, you can outsource the task by hiring any of the epoxy flooring firms that will do all of that for you.

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.
