It is Wise to Hire a Certified Professional for Garage Floor Resurfacing
A property owner can easily do some projects around the home or business. Other projects require the expertise of a professional. One such project is the resurfacing of a garage floor, due in large part to safety, risk, and convenience factors playing a significant role in hiring a professional to do this job. Having a job done right and in a professional manner saves the property owner valuable time, hard earned money, and risk for health hazards due to the use of chemicals in cleaning and resurfacing.
Calling in a certified professional to resurface a garage floor with any number of garage floor coverings, including an epoxy garage floor coating only makes sense. The benefits of calling a professional to do this type of work far outweigh other options.
A certified, professional make a garage floor look like new and avoids significant errors in judgment that a property owner is likely to make. Pitts, holes, deep cracks in cement, and even missing pieces of the garage floor are an easy fix for this certified, licensed, and bonded professional. Not so easy for the property owner. Property owners only stand to expect the most professional job available.
A professional has the special tools, materials, and products to complete the job correctly. This person knows what types of materials for specific floors are in the marketplace. They know what to buy and use that make the property owner happy with the outcome.
This professional first gives an estimate of cost and time to complete the work. They will clean the floor thoroughly. Their experience with concrete, drywall, and materials is needed. They know how particular elements collaborate with all types of temperatures and climate changes. When a garage floor needs resurfacing this means that the area needs to be perfectly smooth before starting work, and only a professional can assure this happens.
Whether the professional buys a concrete resurfacing material such as Quikrete, Sakrete FL-Coat or any other material on the market, they know what is necessary and what to expect. Some of these products require a pressure washing before coating the surface.
This professional knows about concrete cleaners, tools to clean the floor, the need for plastic sheeting, pressure washers, mixing equipment, and the necessity for wearing protective gear. Some old and worn garage floors have a sealer, and this sealer needs to be removed even before the floor is cleaned. It is doubtful if the property owner is aware of expansion joints in the existing floor or what to do with these in the process of resurfacing the floor.
Frequently the professional needs to have an assistant who is well versed in the course of resurfacing garage floors as parts of this process takes two people.
Not often, this professional ends up with some ridges, squeegee marks or uneven areas, all of which they can eliminate because they have the skill to avoid and correct errors.
In the end, save time, headaches from frustration, and money by hiring this project done right by a certified professional.

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.
