Have the garage of your dreams with epoxy flooring
Considering the amount of use and abuse a garage floor gets, you may want to consider the best way to protect your investment. We don’t pay attention to our garage floor until something goes wrong. Taking a proactive approach and protecting the floor surface of your garage is smart and may save you money in the long run. There are options for garage floor coatings, but a good quality epoxy will seal and protect your floor for many years.
While you may be a do-it-yourself person, this is one job you may want to consider hiring an experienced professional. By the time you rent the equipment needed for the job, buy all the materials, and figure out the process, a professional will have the job completed and done correctly. An epoxy floor contractor will be able to properly prepare the surface and provide the necessary steps to extend the life of your garage floor. The epoxy process should be applied in four steps. First the surface has to be prepared. Next a primer and then coating are applied. Finally, the sealing process takes place. If the proper applications are not followed the floor may turn out with a slippery surface and becomes hygienic when wet. A good professional can also suggest colors that will enhance the visual aspects of your garage floor.
What are the benefits of applying garage floor epoxy? Besides acting a sealant on your concrete floor, garage floor coatings increase durability. A properly applied epoxy coating will allow your floor to resist wear and greatly extending the life of your floor. This saves you money, time and worry by not having to replace the floor for many years. If installed by a professional, the job goes quickly and easily. You don’t have the hassle of losing the garage space for an extending period of time. As far as aesthetics, you can be proud of how your floor looks instead of keeping that garage door closed. The coatings come in attractive colors that will enhance the look of your garage. Oil stains a problem? Not only will your floor look brand-new but it will now be easy to clean. It will resist stains as it isn’t porous due to the sealing process. Even harsh chemicals will not damage a good quality epoxy coating.
In addition to the other benefit of a new garage floor epoxy coating, there are safety factors to consider. Quality coatings prevent slipping, are more temperature stable, resist extreme impacts and can even be more resistant than a concrete floor in a fire. They improve lighting in your garage due to the reflective quality. Finally, the new epoxy coating is your contribution in going green. It is an environmentally good decision as you don’t have the waste of completely building a new floor. With all these benefits, consider hiring a reputable epoxy floor professional and adding to the value of your home.

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.
