Is It Time To Resurface Your Garage Floor?
A garage floor withstands the worst of the endless parade of vehicles, equipment, pets, and people that stomp over its surface for years. This constant abuse will eventually lead to a garage floor that is damaged, stained, worn, or ugly. However, it doesn’t have to remain in this condition. Garage floor resurfacing is a viable option for any homeowner seeking to renew their garage floor. The benefits of resurfacing a garage floor include:
An epoxy coating is resistant to water and does not stain. The coating will not absorb water from leaks or water being tracked into the garage. It is also impervious to extreme heat or cold, so there is no worry that hot tires or a drop in temperature will have a negative effect on the flooring. Damage resistance is an especially positive characteristic of epoxy, because it extends the life of the covering, looks good longer than a concrete floor, and will cost less in upkeep.
The resurfaced garage floor will last for years, looking new and unmarred with just basic maintenance. The flooring is designed not to show wear and, due to its resistance to damage, the coating will remain intact and unmarked.
These garage floors are easy to clean with a broom or a mop, depending on what needs to be cleaned. For serious accumulations of dirt or other materials or substances, a hose can be used to clear away the debris. Even notoriously difficult substances like oil will not stick to or stain the covering.
Little thought is usually put into the way a garage looks. It is simply a room to put things, especially things that are dirty. That way of thinking can be altered by an epoxy garage floor coating. Available in several varieties or colors and textures, the garage can become just as attractive as the rest of the house, but no less functional than its original capacity.
Repairing a damaged concrete garage floor can be expensive and there is no guarantee that an accident won’t occur to ruin the concrete as soon as the work is complete. An epoxy covering eliminates the worry of damage and will last for years. In addition, the cost is considerably less than other surfacing options or repair work. It is recommended that the services of a professional be employed to install the epoxy coating. Hiring a professional is more convenient and safer for the homeowner than doing the job themselves.

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.
