These days it’s easy to have experienced professionals come in and quickly transform your garage floor into a true thing of beauty.

Using the right garage floor covering not only makes your garage look better and become more versatile, it can also improve your the value of your property. That means putting down a new garage floor covering can actually put money into your pocket while enabling you to get more from your garage.
Types Of Garage Flooring
Home and business owners are spoiled for choices when it comes to covering their garage floor. They can coat their garage floor with products like epoxy paint, standard concrete floor paint or concrete stain. They can also choose to use floor mats, rollout mats, rigid snap-together tiles or flexible interlocking tiles to instantly improve the way their garage looks and the things that can be done there. Some people simply have concrete sealers put down on their garage floor to improve its look and function.
Making The Best Choice
Deciding which type of floor covering to use is your garage is an important decision. It can decide how your floors will look, how durable it is and what types of activities can take place in there. You should call in an experienced flooring professional to help you with the decision. They can weigh what you plan to do in your garage, how long you want the surface to last and how much money you want to spend and help you decide which floor covering product is best suited for your needs. That can help you to make an intelligent, informed decision you can live with.
Using epoxy to cover garage floors is the best choice for most home and business owners. Epoxy not only makes the garage floor look good, it also protect the floor’s substrate from wear and tear, abrasions, oil, grease and chemical spills. Plus epoxy won’t peel when it comes in contact with hot tires. Many people choose epoxy floor covering because in addition to its durability, beauty and water resistance, it also comes in a wide array of textures and colors. This allows for the creation of many unique designs and color combinations. Plus installing it is fast and affordable.
People no longer have to keep plain-looking concrete floors in their garage. There are many great choices when it comes to choosing a garage floor covering. However, your choice should be informed by how you plan to use your garage. Taking the time to meet and discuss your options with a skilled professional can help you make the best choice. They can identify the floor covering that stands up best to the local weather as well as wear and tear. Plus the right garage floor covering can help to extend your living or working space as well.

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.
