Garage Epoxy Floor Kits
If you are going to be doing the job yourself, make sure you buy the best quality epoxy flooring in Wilmington, DE kit available. You also need to prepare yourself for a couple of hours of labor preparing the garage floor. Failure to prepare the floor properly or buying a cheap epoxy floor kit will result in a definite coating failure. The major pros on an epoxy floor coatings is, cost effective, it has a great appearance, and the floor is extremely durable. The top quality epoxy floor covering can last up to 20 years.
Your garage floor will also be brighter and will reflect light. Just a damp cloth for the small spills or for larger messes take the garden hose to clean the whole floor. Your garage epoxy floor kits are available in several different colors and you can get them with or without color flakes. The kits also come in different grades depending on the amount of traffic you have in the area. The grades will meet demands like waterproofing, adhering to a previous epoxy flooring, acid resistance or even oil stained floors.
You must keep in mind that the floor needs to be grind, cleaned and etched properly. If it is not done right the epoxy will not bond properly to the concrete floor. It will only take a few hours of time and some good old fashion elbow grease. A urethane topcoat also needs to be used to protect the epoxy. This is not a difficult step, but it is very critical in the process. The down time for your garage is about 2 to 3 days, but this is only because of the dry times needed for each step.
Garage Mats that Roll Out
These are the easiest to install. You order the size you need and roll it out. All you need to do is trim it with a pair of scissors or a utility knife. It only takes about 30 minutes per mat. Mats can be fused together with a seaming compound for water tightness. The mats are easy to clean and road salt does not hurt the mat. Vehicle fluids just wipe up and the mats are very durable. They are not slippery like vinyl mats. There is no floor prep, just sweep the floor out and lay the mats down.
A good quality garage mat will have a warranty of about 10 years, but the typical warranty is 5 years. The mats are not as good looking as the tiles or epoxy floors.
Tile floors are the most durable, look the best, and logos can be embedded into them. The interlocking tiles can be up to 5/16 of an inch thick and can be placed over concrete or wood floors. The solid tiles are sound deadening and do not sound like a clacking when walked on. The tiles are guaranteed for Life.
The tiles come in many different sizes to fit any garage or floor area. They are easily removed, so if you move you can take the tiles with you. Tiles are the most costly way to cover your garage floor. They have different patterns of flat, slate finish, diamond or coin pattern.

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.
