Garage Cabinets Naperville and Palatine
The garage cabinet is very important because it is the place where we temporary store different unwanted items as well as storing the sports equipment, large tools, gardening tools, recreational gadgets, left over materials from previous home improvement projects and seasonal appurtenances. Whenever a garage gets overcrowded, it will become quite hard for homeowners to find anything they are looking for. They will be sure that it is in the garage cabinet but they will not be able to find it. So when that happens, it is time to remodel and organize the area with garage cabinets Naperville.
Moisture-Free TFM Garage Cabinets Palatine
Garage cabinets don’t have to cost a lot as they can be quite cheap. In fact, the garage cabinets are better if they are made from TFM (thermally fused melamine) materials. These materials are anything but expensive and they are considered as the best solution for a garage cabinet. This is due to the high resistance of TFM materials to moisture build up. This means that homeowners will feel free to store steel or metal items in closed storage and these items will not suffer from corrosion.
TFM materials are basically décor paper that is combined with resin. It is then attached by heat to a particleboard so it can have a wooden like panel form. Since the back and the front of this particleboard are bonded with TFM, the material becomes non porous which means that it will be less susceptible to any expected moisture buildups. So in a way, TFM is like a laminate but much cheaper because laminate consists of numerous sheets of paper, so it is thicker and more expensive than TFM.
Some people might think that because of the lightweight and the small thickness of TFM, it will not be able to hold heavy gadgets and tools. There is no truth to this as the truth is quite the opposite as TFM can hold up to three-hundred pounds without sagging at the very least. Every shelf of the TFM cabinet can be adjusted and it is reinforced with steel in order to increase the structure integrity. The shelves can come without center posts or dividers or with them, it is a matter of preference. This is why such cabinets are very versatile as they can used as compartmentalized or large storage solutions.
Loft and Off Floor Models
There are other forms of garage cabinets such as Off Floor & Loft type cabinets. The Off Floor models are appended to the garage wall but without touching the ground as they are placed several inches above the level of the garage’s floor. As for the Loft type, it comes in the form of attachments on the ceiling in order to maximize the space that homeowners have in their garages. They can come in several shelves that are appended next to each other. They can be used in order to store seasonal sporting tools like skateboards, poles, fishing rods, oars and skis alongside other equipment.

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.
