Planning for Epoxy Floors
When constructing a new building in West Chester or expanding an existing one, it is imperative to have a very detailed production schedule. This way, you are on time for your grand opening, and you won’t end up cutting corners to speed up the project. Most of the time, this isn’t the case. Towards the end of a building process, the construction gets sped up and corners get cut in order to complete the project by the chosen date. A lot of this is because production managers simply don’t include enough time for the smaller parts of the project, such as having your epoxy flooring installed.
When your epoxy flooring West Chester technician arrives, he will need a clean floor to work no, free of work boots and construction debris. This means that killing two birds with one stone will be nearly impossible during the days in which your epoxy is being installed. It is better to play safe than be sorry in this case. This is because you could end up ruining the epoxy, or compromising the durability and life of your brand new flooring. Therefore, you should give your flooring technician ample time to survey the workspace, estimate, the time needed for the project, and complete the project.
On top of this, concrete needs time to cure. An epoxy flooring technician will not be able to apply your new epoxy flooring unless the concrete has cured. To ensure the concrete has completely cured, it is best to complete the project as much as possible, at least until the HVAC system can be turned on, run for a few days, and assist the concrete in releasing moisture until it is completely cured. You will also want to build time in your production schedule for proper moisture testing. Often times, a moisture tolerant primer will also be required. You will want to plan for this in advance, the last thing you want during your production process is any kind of surprise, so be prepared.
You want your project to be everything you imagined. So, avoid having to cut corners or speed up production by allowing ample time to complete every part of the process, especially your floors. Flooring is the foundation of the whole new facility, so don’t skimp on it! It will look awesome if you simply plan for every part of it, allow ample time for your flooring technician to complete it, and don’t try to kill two birds with one stone the days that your technician will be installing your floors. You want this project to be something you’re proud of, so don’t rush it!

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.
