Having Your Garage Floor Finished
When people think of home renovations and maintenance the garage is often one of the last places that they think of. However some simple renovations to your garage floor can reverberate to increase your home value and make your garage a more attractive and practice place to work.
One garage renovation that is particularly useful to a home owner is the application of an epoxy coating to your garage floor. Many people think of an epoxy coating on their garage floor as something akin to painting their floor. While this is not a bad way to think of an epoxy coat, the benefits of an epoxy quote are so much more than an simple paint job which is more of an renovation done for purely aesthetic reasons and one that does not last a significant period of time.
Having said that an epoxy coat on your floor even has an aesthetic advantage over paint; it can be done in a wide range of colors and even with unique and customer designs (such as your initials or favorite sports team), and has a quality of having people stop when they see an epoxy coat, simply stunned at how beautiful it looks on your garage floor.
As noted above, an epoxy coat on your garage floor is more than just a pretty paint job. It protects the garage floor from oil stains and the like which can protect the floor. Further it prevents your garage floor from chips in the cement and other damage. Epoxy is made from an acrylic latex substance which hardens through a chemical reaction that gives the epoxy strength and makes it a more durable substance.
This strength helps to protect the garage floor from chemicals, chips and breakage, and just day to day wear and tear. In addition, an epoxy prevents from damage from moisture which can crack and freeze. The epoxy coat on your garage floor prevents it from seeping into the cracks and expanding when it freezes leading to more damage.
An epoxy also prevents uneven looks if it is applied properly. Some people will try to apply an epoxy coating only to find that they are not up to the job or don’t apply the epoxy effectively. Overall it is not only easier but also better to have a professional apply an epoxy themselves.
When an epoxy is applied it needs to be applied to a perfectly clean surface so it can effectively bind to the concrete. Professionals use professional grade power washers and make sure the floor is clean and dry before the epoxy is applied. Any paint that is on the floor as well as stains need to be thoroughly removed so the epoxy can be properly applied. For a home owner trying to do it himself this is too big a job but a professional can easily apply the epoxy coating in s beautiful manner that lets your garage stand out in 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.
