Planning your Garage Floor Resurfacing Project
Hiring someone who does garage floor resurfacing is an easy thing to do. But you also need to know what to look for in the person, as well as what to ask. The person who does your garage floor resurfacing should be someone who is easy to talk to. You should be able to sit down with them face to face and discuss your needs. This is a huge investment on your part. So your investment in your garage floor resurfacing professional should hold just as much equal value.
Request a visit from someone you trust. Have them come to your home and assess the job and what needs to be done. This is part of the value and investment. A professional like this knows exactly what type of resurfacing your home will need. He or she can also advise you on the materials that may be needed. Remember, they are the experts. So trust in what they have to say to you.
When you guys discuss the materials, look into materials that adjust to the climates. You may need something that will withstand the cold, depending on where you live. So ask your guy what will suit your home best. Ask as many questions about this as possible. That is what he is there for.
Discuss what exactly you do in your garage. Which spaces are used more and what you do in those spaces. Depending on the activities, you may want to have something that won’t stain. Your guy can go over the details with you. That way nothing is left out.
There are many types of surface materials to consider. Some like cement. Some prefer the stone look. Others prefer padded materials. So go over the different options and what will fit well in your space.
The biggest thing to go over with your contractor is the budget. You need to stick with your budget. So don’t invest in something that will put you over it. If you budget is $12,000, than stay within that limit. Some materials cost more than others. They may look really good, but they may not be affordable. So stick with what you have to work with.
Your contractor may suggest certain things. Pay attention to what they have to say. But also be prepared to say no. If something is not working for you than discuss it with your contractor. Look at other options. Talk to them about how to best get rid of the water from your garage space.
Even if you don’t feel that something is a big deal, discuss it anyway. Once you have discussed everything in detail you must move forward with the project. Never let the contractor have free reign to do whatever he or she has to. He or she may be the professional, but you are the one in charge. So pay attention to what they are doing. If something doesn’t feel right, than talk it over, keeping it positive all the way.
My garage was so cluttered and a total mess, I was always embarrassed to have the door open! Not anymore!! Floorguard® helped me design a perfect system for my family, it’s amazing!! Now I keep my garage door open for all to see, it’s organized, and absolutely beautiful!!!

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.
