How to Properly Protect Concrete
Have you ever walked across a concrete surface? The answer is most likely, yes. Concrete is used everywhere in society. It makes up driveways, parking garages, sidewalks, residential garages, and so much more. Concrete is a very large investment from individuals and their government. Billions of dollars have been spent on the utilization of concrete. Now, have you ever noticed damaged concrete? Maybe the concrete is stained, or maybe it’s cracked. The concrete could be so damaged that part of it are uneven and hazardous. This is because the concrete has not been protected for many, many years making it more and more expensive to repair or even replace.
What many citizens, business owners, and homeowners don’t realize is that protecting concrete is so much easier and cheaper than repairing it or replacing it. Many people also don’t realize that there are tons of options for protecting concrete. However, only one of those options is the most cost-effective, longest lasting, and quite simply, the most aesthetic. This solution is epoxy. Many homeowners and business owners use paint. However, paint is easily damaged. Because of this, it needs to be replaced semi-annually. Sometimes, it needs to be replaced even more often than that. Some also decide to use carpet or plastic tiles that snap together. However, carpet does not provide very much protection and the plastic tiles allow liquids to seep through and stain. They also don’t add any structural integrity to the concrete itself which means it can still be damaged over time. This is why epoxy is the leading choice amongst concrete protectants and the professionals who apply them.
Epoxy does, in fact, strengthen the structural integrity of the concrete itself. This is the best part about epoxy because it means that the actual concrete will be stronger and be much, much harder to damage. This is because concrete has a porous nature. This porous nature helps epoxy to seep through the concrete, fill its pores and strengthen it from the inside, out while also providing a beautiful new finish of your choice. Yes, epoxy is completely customizable, much like paint. You can pink any color, or any logo to be imprinted on your epoxy flooring in Wayne, PA. This means that your business’ branding will show from the moment customers step through the door. It can also mean that your wife has a garage floor covering she can be proud of!
For all of these reasons, it is highly suggested to choose Epoxy for all of your concrete protecting needs. Don’t waste your money on paint, carpet, or tiles. You will only need to spend more money, later, when your concrete is damaged and unsightly. Instead, choose epoxy for an extremely durable, long-lasting finish that you will love for many years to come.

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.
