Misconceptions About Epoxy Floor Coating
Epoxy floor coating is a great option for floors that take a beating and see a lot of traffic, but there are still some misconceptions about this flooring type. Here are some common myths and the truth behind them when it comes to epoxy flooring:
It has to be reapplied every few years: A professionally installed epoxy coating resists wear from foot traffic, vehicle traffic, and heavy machinery, and can last for up to 10 years. Other floor coatings do have to be reapplied often, making epoxy an option that saves more time and money in the long run.
It has a slippery finish: Epoxy flooring is less slippery and more skid resistant than other smooth flooring surfaces. Epoxy coating even comes with slip-resistant options, making it a great choice for places where it is crucial to prevent slips and falls.
It is too expensive: Because epoxy flooring requires less repairs and maintenance, it is a cost-effective choice in the long run.
Paint coating is the same as epoxy coating: While they may look similar, a paint coating will not bond to the concrete that it is applied to like an epoxy coating will.
It can be installed without professional assistance: Professionals who specialize in installing epoxy floor coating have been trained to properly prep, apply, and cure your epoxy flooring to ensure the coating lasts. Attempting to install your epoxy coating on your own could lead to more expenses down the road.
There are a few misconceptions about epoxy flooring, and knowing the facts will help you, as a consumer, to make the best flooring choice for your needs. Visit Floorguard.com to contact an epoxy flooring specialist near you.

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.
