Professional Concrete Resurfacing Companies
Concrete is kind of like your spouse after 25 years of marriage: a little worn around the edges, but still durable. When that’s what we see looking back at us in the mirror it’s time to get a face-lift. Likewise concrete resurfacing is a way of making your tired old concrete look like new again. Actually, tired, old concrete is at an advantage because it doesn’t moan and complain. It will however diminish the appearance of your home.
Resurfacing on the other hand is the most economical method of increasing the “livability” of your home, not to mention the economics of maintaining a home. Resurfacing concrete is cosmetic: nothing more than creating a brand new look at a fraction of the cost of removing and replacing the old concrete with new.
Concrete use is a no-brainer: concrete is used to create/construct driveways and floors, walls and patios. With your resurfaced concrete, you can then start on the decoration of your house and create a new look which is not only more beautiful but allows for an “extended shelf-life”. Not to mention that it will can increase quality and value of your home.
Concrete resurfacing can be accomplished in a variety of colors and textures and can be adapted to suit any home design. Some surface options include brick and sandstone. But home-owners are limited only by their imaginations. Resurfacing work has often been called “art created in concrete” and while that might be like a stretch in terms of creativity; the surface to be refurbished really is like an open canvas for the designer who completes the work.
Without getting over-technical, concrete resurfacing is accomplished using polymer resins which represent one of the best resurfacing sealants available. For best result, the resin overlay is applied in layers depending on what is necessary for your surface.
Professional Resurfacing Services
It goes without saying that you should leave resurfacing work to the pros. The best results come from those who do the work best: professional resurfacing company. The work to be completed might seem easy enough but if it was then the home-owner would do it! Any professional resurfacing company worth its weight in cement will listen to your ideas, make suggestions of their own and provide you with complete estimates and guarantee. Shop around and talk to as many companies as possible to ensure not only the best deal but the best work. It’s just smart business on your part.
So You Resurfaced. Now what?
Resurfacing gets the best results on a clean and level surface. Cracks and fissures are easy to fix but larger breaks in the cement need to filled and leveled. Resurfacing can solve your concrete appearance issues in the short term but “foundation shifts” represent another story for another time.
Just like a spouse, if you treat your concrete with regard, it will treat you well for years to come (and you never have to buy it flowers).
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.
