Garage Floor Epoxy Can Change Your Garage’s Look
A plain, bare concrete floor is usually not much to look at, but you can do more with it if you hire a professional coating company to put epoxy on it. Epoxy coatings make garage floors as visually appealing as new kitchen linoleum, and your garage will look much more like a car showroom if you decide to get epoxy for it. Your floor will also be protected in case you drop a hammer or drag heavy objects across it, and you can also get epoxy installed that has a slip-resistant formula mixed in with it. But you should only let professionals install your garage floor coatings because there are several things they can do.
Professional floor coating installers have experience that amateurs don’t have, and this usually makes for a safer installation of epoxy. Epoxy can be a health hazard if its not handled properly, and professionals can make sure that no injuries are caused or property becomes damaged by it. Professional installers also use high-quality epoxies, which are very different than cheap products that local home retail stores sell, and you need a top product if you want top results. Also, professional installers can inform you if you need to do any floor preparation before installation, other than clearing out tools or vehicles from the garage.
The time that it takes the epoxy to be installed on the floor usually depends on the extent of the pre-installation work. If there aren’t very many cracks or areas leaking a lot of moisture, the process should go very quickly. If there are a lot of cracks or areas that need patching, the process could take a little longer. The epoxy flooring Philadelphia PA installers will usually smooth and clear the dust off your floor before any application is done using advanced power tools for improved results.
Depending on which kind of epoxy you want them to install or the kind that they offer, they might prep the floor with a primer. A primer could also ensure that moisture doesn’t seep into the regular epoxy coatings. Once the primer is dry, they will usually lay the coating that has the finish type on it. That finish could be speckled, an mix of chipped colors, or a solid color. Then usually a top layer is placed down to seal the floor. Depending on what your installers recommend, the floor will usually be ready to use again in about 24 hours.

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.
