Hiring Professionals To Apply Epoxy Garage Floor Covering
Why Get An Epoxy Garage Floor Covering?
Epoxy is kind of floor coating that protects the surface of concrete floors from dents or other wear and tear that can occur from driving vehicles, moving heavy material, or just typical workshop usage of a garage. It’s an extremely durable covering that when applied right can last for many years, and it makes for an easy job cleaning and maintaining the garage. It also gives your garage some cosmetic appeal because instead of having just a rough patch of concrete slab making up the floor, it also has some color tone in it and the top coat that’s applied has some gloss in it to give the floor a cleaner shinier look.
Why Have A Professional Do Your Floor?
Most professionals that apply garage floor coverings charge a flat rate based on square feet that will be covered, so when you hire a professional you’ll usually get a fair quote right away. Also professionals will be able to tell you if your floor or garage is suited for an epoxy covering and if there is anything that needs to be done to prevent any elements such as moisture vapor from coming from the garage floor. And since applying epoxy coats has to be done just right to get the best results and ensure the garage floor is not damaged by any mishaps, professional installers are the best choice for the job, especially since most offer their customers an installation warranty.
What’s The Process Like For Installing Epoxy Covering?
Usually epoxy garage floor coverings are installed in multiple layers of coats with some prep work done on the floor before they’re applied. Usually the installer will grind the floor with a cement grinder and get rid of all the dust so that the surface has the proper feel for the epoxy resin. Then a primer coat is usually applied first so that the main layers have a good surface to bond to. Then usually the coating that contains the floor color is applied next, followed by the finish layer that serves as the luster layer or to give the floor its shine. Depending on the professional’s recommendations, they may install an extra layer in the process to give the floor protection from the sun if the garage has windows that take in direct sunlight.

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.
