Reasons Why Epoxy is A Premier Flooring Option
Epoxy flooring in Wayne, PA has become a popular flooring option for commercial and residential buildings and industries. The coating is a combination of polyamine hardener and an epoxide resin. Prior to applying the coating on the concrete, it is recommended for you to remove all greases and repair cracks and chips. You can use in walkways, floors, and ceiling.
What are some ideal settings for epoxy flooring?
• Garage and auto mechanic shops
• Kitchen and laundry areas
• Hotels and grocery stores
• Warehouses and manufacturing buildings
• Watercraft storage
Strong and Durable
The epoxy flooring offers a hard surface that is able to withstand a much more impact weight. Being a solid polymer prevents chemical breakdown. One will not need to worry about floor chipping, damage, and abrasion. This enables the floor to rarely get worn-out and thus ends up lasting long. It is perfect for covering imperfections and flaws in the concrete. Epoxy facilitates faster material movement which increases productivity.
Aesthetic Value and Brightness
The coatings are available in different colors and decorative patterns. You can choose to use one or several colors to get an attractive surface. Many companies have used it to enhance the company’s brand. It is used to direct traffic or communicate safety information. Epoxy flooring gives you a high gloss shiny surface that increases brightness by more than 150%. It improves the lighting of a building due to reflection. The aesthetic feature can increase the morale of your workers and attract more customers.
Safety and chemical resistance
Epoxy is able to withstand more heat and cold than other floors. You can choose to install a surface that is slip, heat and fire resistant. This makes it ideal for industries that deal with hot machinery and fluids. The flooring can resist corrosive chemicals. The coating maintains its appearance even when in a harsh chemical environment.
Low maintenance and quick Installation
Whether you are using epoxy on an old or new concrete, the installation is easy. It will save you time and money as installation will cause minimal disruption. Being a smooth surface makes cleaning easy, as you can use a pressure washer or a mop. Another advantage of epoxy is the fact that it is non-porous, meaning it is fluid and stain resistant. The easy to clean and resilience to abrasion and chipping saves you money that could have been used to purchase more chemicals for cleaning and repairs.
You require few materials to install and maintain epoxy flooring. It does not erode into the air or water as it is non-toxic.
With the above and other benefits of epoxy flooring, you can never go wrong if you chose it for your new building or if you need to redesign the old one.

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.
