Professional Epoxy Garage Floor Installation
Perhaps you have noticed the marked difference in appearance between untreated cement and the shiny covering on a durable, high quality epoxy garage floor? Asking a professional to apply a glossy or plain sealant to the floor of your garage holds many benefits. Two of the most important advantages include: enhanced protection for the floor and an attractive surface appearance.
Safeguarding a High Impact Area
Many people prefer the application of a durable epoxy stain in order to enhance the functional utility of the garage floor. This surface over the course of time in most households sustains especially heavy use.
Not only must garage floors frequently bear the weight of vehicles, heavy yard and lawn equipment, shop tools and other weighty items, but for practical reasons (such as fire prevention) this area of the home typically cannot obtain the surface protection afforded by carpeting. Yet just like the driveway, the garage floor must sustain the impact of repeated pounding from tires and foot traffic. Small wonder then that so many property owners prefer to have sealants applied to offer some additional protection to these hardworking structures.
An additional reason to seek the application of an epoxy sealant concerns the nature of the concrete or cement flooring itself. This superficially smooth surface typically appears rough and pockmarked on a microscopic level.
As car tires acquire pebbles and roadway contaminants within the interior treads of the tires, they eventually carry these materials into the garage. Small quantities of debris on tires can function in an abrasive way when these tiny particles fall onto the garage floor, only to be ground into the surface repeatedly as vehicles park. Even worse, the small quantity of moisture contained in raindrops and melting snow on car exteriors drips onto the garage floor. Epoxy sealants help prevent this material from damaging the underlying surface.
Adding Beauty to a Garage
Yet another important reason for asking a technician to apply an epoxy sealant concerns the general appearance of this garage upgrade. A correctly applied high quality epoxy offers a clear, durable finish that shines. Your floor enjoys a much brighter and scuff-resistant appearance!
The coating sinks into microscopic cracks and crevices within the floor’s surface, making it more difficult for dirt to embed in these locations. The results appear visible in terms of a glossier, attractive and more easily cleaned epoxy garage floor.

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.
