Maintaining Your Garage Floor
Properly caring for a garage floor can be quite the task. Between pressure washing to help reduce the appearance of stains to trying to patch holes or cracks, it can be very tedious and time-consuming. However, this can completely change with the application of an epoxy garage floor.
Epoxy flooring is relatively new to the flooring market. It is a substance that seeps into porous concrete and strengthens it from the inside, out. This is incredibly helpful in the long run because it makes your concrete stronger which makes the very foundation of your house stronger. It also adds a lot of value to your home. A broken, uneven garage floor can be a turnoff to potential buyers. In order to prevent your garage floor from deteriorating, you should call for a garage floor resurfacing with epoxy as soon as possible.
Maintaining a regular garage floor takes a lot of hard work. Pressure washing alone can be an entire day’s worth of work. If your concrete has begun to split and crack, then you’re in for a treat! Patching concrete can be very hard labor. It can also be incredibly expensive. Depending on the severity of the concrete, sometimes just patching it will not be enough. A lot of garage concrete is very far past repair.
Despite all of this, epoxy can still be a solution! Epoxy can fix just about any concrete situation. Epoxy is laid over the top of concrete and fills its pores. It then strengthens the concrete while inside the concrete and then leaves a layer of epoxy on top. This layer of epoxy is incredibly durable. This durability helps to protect the concrete against cracking, chipping, stains, and becoming uneven. Epoxy is also best done by professionals which mean a lot less work for you! All you have to do is sit back, relax, and then enjoy your brand new floors!
Epoxy also makes maintenance for your floors a lot easier. You most likely won’t even have to use a pressure washer. Epoxy is so easy to clean that you could often just sweep or mop it and be good to go. Epoxy also won’t need patching or filling for many, many years. Epoxy is incredibly long-lasting, so you most likely won’t have to touch it up for decades. It also resists stains. Concrete absorbs liquids due to its porous nature which makes it impossible to completely wash away stains. Epoxy is not that way. Liquids sit on the top of epoxy floors. Therefore, all you have to do is wipe up the liquid! It’s as easy as that! So, call in a professional today to lay epoxy in your home, and make your life easier!

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.
