How to Seal Old Concrete
Epoxy coatings are an excellent way to seal old concrete. Homeowners can count on the experts at Floorguard® to turn their concrete slab from drab to fab with high-quality epoxy concrete sealant and professional installation services. Coating or “sealing” concrete surfaces allows for increased longevity and protection. When it comes to sealing concrete, our process includes:
- Removing all dirt, debris, and moisture from concrete.
- Deep cleaning the surface.
- Mopping and thoroughly drying the concrete.
- Removing a thin layer of concrete using our ‘Shot Blast Machine’ to rid the floor of any contaminants that could interfere with your new floor coating.
- Applying a ‘Bond Coat’, which penetrates deep into the concrete slab or floor, creating a secure bond designed to withstand the test of time.
- Applying a heavy media blanket to excess into the Bond Coat creates a heavy-duty foundation for the final coating.
- Finally, once the previous coating cures, we then apply our chemical and UV resistant topcoat and Encapsulation Coat.
Sealing old concrete is a job best performed by the experts so that you can have those beautiful epoxy floors you’ve always wanted. Additionally, sealed concrete enhances the appearance of the floor surface by making it lustrous and shiny by preserving the surface’s patterns, colors, and textures.

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.
