Overview of Floorguard Epoxy Floor Coating
Epoxy Floor Coating Systems
You may love the look of designer epoxy floors, but you may be wondering what exactly is epoxy? The beautiful flooring you see is the finished result of our unique polymers or organic compounds that have natural adhesive properties. This makes the epoxy floor coating naturally bound to the concrete that is below it. The molecular structure of polymers such as epoxy grants them durability, toughness, and elasticity.
Epoxy floor coating systems are practical and a go-to for so many applications. Floorguard even offers an epoxy flake color chart, so you can personalize your floors to the color scheme you want.
A few examples of prime uses of epoxy floor coating systems include:
- Concrete floor repairs
- Pool decks
Since there are no seams or rough textures in our floor applications, cleaning is a breeze. Its easy upkeep makes it perfect for daycare centers and schools, so kids don’t have to worry about staining floors or causing unintentional damages. Since kids in daycare spend a lot of time sitting on the floor, epoxy flooring is often the preferred choice amongst these centers because of the protective layer. Epoxy flooring is essentially impervious to damage caused by water, chemicals, bleach, acids, etc. In addition, many types of epoxy floors are slip-resistant, so kids and adults alike are less likely to slip and fall.
It’s important to note that epoxy flooring is flame-resistant, making it an optimal industrial concrete coating used in daycare centers, hospitals, and restaurants. Epoxy also offers a level of protection from harmful UV rays from sunlight, keeping it cool to the touch when compared to options like tile or bare concrete. Epoxy flooring is similar to concrete in this regard.

How it works
Floorguard® Concrete Preparation is second to none! We mechanically prepare the concrete by removing the top thin layers of the concrete substrate using a Shot Blast Machine—the ultimate concrete preparation. By doing this, we ensure there are no contaminates to interfere with the bond between the Bond Coat and the concrete substrate. Our Bond Coat material penetrates deep into the concrete, creating a tight bond that will last for years to come! Floorguard then broadcasts a heavy blanket of Media to excess into the Bond Coat, which creates a heavy, durable foundation. Once this has cured, we then apply our Encapsulation Coat, which is a thick, chemical and UV resistant topcoat made to encapsulate the media, giving you a rich, tough, and beautiful finished Floorguard® 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.
