Four Good Reasons to Choose Epoxy Garage Flooring
Your garage floor is undoubtedly one of the surfaces needing the toughest construction materials you can find. Show your garage some love by having an expert apply an epoxy coat on your garage floor; it is a tough and durable finish. Epoxy garage coatings strengthen your surface while transforming the general appearance of the place. Here are a few reasons homeowners are increasingly choosing epoxy garage flooring:
It Catches Attention
Who wants to have a garage floor with a boring or even ugly appearance? No one. If you have decided it is time you gave your garage floor a facelift, consider having a professional apply an epoxy coat. Everyone who walks into that space will notice the captivating shine and beauty. They will say “wow! Who did this for you?”, and you will connect them with the company you hired to handle the task.
The Coat is Durable and Tough
Cars and other objects can damage a weak floor. That is the reason you want to have the toughest coat you can find applied to your garage floor. Do not think an epoxy coat is just a cute layer of paint. Epoxy is a mixture of one part of epoxide resin and a part of polyamine hardener. The hardener gives the material its characteristic strength. It is considerably thicker than regular paint, even epoxy paint, and forms a powerful bond with the underlying surface. Epoxy is so durable that it is highly resistant to chemicals, stains, chipping, impacts, and abrasion.
It Keeps the Garage Floor Clean
The thick coat does a great job of covering minor flaws in concrete. It seals all cracks and has anti-dusting properties. A cement floor can produce a lot of dust from the powder it sheds. Normal garage use deposits this dust onto other surfaces such as car exteriors, tool benches, and onto other storage objects. Some of it ends up in your house. Use epoxy coating and stop worrying about dust everywhere.
Epoxy Coats are Moisture Resistant
Epoxy naturally resists moisture. It is the kind of coating you want if you live in snowy climates. Road salts that end up on the floor during winter are easy to clean if you have the right kind of coating. Cleaning an epoxy-coated garage floor just requires you to use water and some soap, and you are done. You can then collect debris and dust with a mop after the floor has dried up.
What about the issue of Hot Tire Pick Up?
Heat from car tires can end up damaging an epoxy-coated floor. However, that only happens when you use lesser quality purchases from the local store such as water-based coatings, which contain only 50 percent solid epoxy. A professional epoxy floor installation company uses products consisting of 100 percent epoxy, which is way thicker than what most people typically buy from the store. Always hire an expert.
Do you need to have your garage floor coated with a tough, durable material that is also chemical, moisture, dust, and abrasion resistant? Choose epoxy.

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.
