Epoxy Flooring – The Perfect Solution for Many Spaces
Choosing the flooring is one of the most important decisions that has to be made, whether for industrial plants, commercial businesses or residential homes. Different types of flooring have their own benefits as well as their drawbacks, there isn’t a perfect type of flooring but there are flooring types that come with minimal drawbacks. One of the best types is epoxy flooring. This is because the epoxy floors come with a long list of benefits and they are also cost effective.
Epoxy is a flooring surface that is made out of different layers of epoxy and it is applied to the floor with a depth that is less than 2 mm. The material itself is made out of a hardener and resin and they are mixed together through a chemical reaction that creates a rigid and a very strong plastic material. This material is resistant against degradation and it has the ability to adhere strongly to different surfaces including concrete floors.
Epoxy flooring is incredibly strong that it is one of the first choices for demanding and rough industrial environments. This is because they can withstand heavy machinery as well as chemical spills and any kind of abuse. This is why this kind of flooring can be found at factories and hangars.
Epoxy can also be used in museums as well as residential homes because now, epoxy floors are not just strong but ugly floors, as they can come in great designs with beautiful colors. High grade resin is used in order to upgrade the surface of the epoxy and enable it to obtain different colored effects so it can be used in non-industrial areas. This is why epoxy coating is the best method that will make shop floors, commercial floors and residential floors look their best.
In order to apply epoxy flooring, you do into have to tear down the old one because the whole goal of epoxy is to breathe life into your old floors. This is because epoxy can be applied to the existing floors as well as the new ones.
Epoxy is also one of the most commonly used garage floor coverings because the floor of the garage is the most abused part of the house. You have cars getting in and backing out of it, hot tire marks and it is where we keep all of our heavy tools and equipment and we most likely drag them on the floor of the garage. This is why the flooring of the garage has to be tough to withstand all of that.
Also, what most people do not know about epoxy floors is that they are great fire-retardants. This is because the coating includes pigments that will expand very quickly when they are exposed to heat. This forms a barrier of protection that can last long enough for you to put out the fire or for the fire to be put out naturally.

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.
