Garage Cabinets Chicago Homeowners Would Like to Have
Even occasionally, you make it a point to sort unwanted items; and the easiest place to use, as temporary storage is the garage. However, once you step inside the garage, you realize you will only be adding more clutter, because this is where the family keeps larger tools, sports equipment, recreational gadgets, seasonal appurtenances and leftover materials from some home improvement project; plus the portable gizmos and contraptions the family might need in case of emergency situations. If your garage is already overcrowded, then it is high time for you to start organizing things by outfitting the area with garage cabinets. Chicago is home to storage solution providers who know exactly what every Chicago home needs, “a place for everything, to keep everything in its place.”
Moisture-Free TFM Garage Cabinets
Garage cabinets do not have to be expensive. In fact, these are even better off if made from thermally fused melamine (TFM) materials. It is inexpensive and yet more ideal as a garage storage solution, because it is highly resistant to moisture build-up. That way, even if you keep things in closed storage, those with metal or steel components will not suffer from corrosion.
TFMs are actually décor paper combined with resin and then attached by way of heat to a particleboard to create a wood-like panel. Since both the front and back of the particleboard are TFM bonded, the cabinetry material then becomes non-porous and therefore less susceptible to moisture build up. TFM is similar to a laminate, but the latter is more expensive because it is made of several sheets of paper and therefore thicker than the TFM.
Customizable Storage Solutions
Look at some examples of TFM garage cabinets, which Chicago stores offer at affordable prices. You will find an array of wood-like cabinetry that appears smooth and sleek. You may think that the materials are too flimsy to serve as hold-all for heavy tools and gadgets; but these are actually capable of holding as much as 300 pounds without even sagging. Each shelf is adjustable and has steel reinforcements to enhance its structural integrity. These can be with or without dividers or center posts; thus, versatile enough to serve as a single but large storage space or as a compartmentalized storage solution. Moreover, the cabinets can have solid back panels or have panel grooves instead, as the latter can make in-cabinet organization more flexible.
Off-Floor and Loft Type Cabinets
Aside from the TFM cabinet’s non-moisture resistant quality, aesthetic appearance, strong-built and adjustable features, TFM custom garage cabinets in Chicago come in off-floor and loft forms. Off-floor models are those appended to the wall several inches above the floor. The loft type, on the other hand, comes in the form of ceiling attachments, as a means to maximize whatever space is available in your garage. You can have several shelves appended side-by-side so you can use them for seasonal sporting equipment such as skis, skateboards, fishing rods, poles, oars and other similar items that take up extended horizontal spaces during storage.
Outfitting your garage with this type of storage solution will make you so proud, you will probably hold garage sales more often than you used to, so you can show off your garage cabinets. Chicago home storage solution providers have installation technicians, who will make sure you will have a picture perfect garage.

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.
