Repair and Resurfacing Garage Floors Have it Done Professionally
Has your garage floor started to look its age – worn, cracked or stained? If your garage floor has become unappealing to look at and is need of repair and restoring, you can fix your garage floor and its imperfections to give it a, like new, appearance that you are proud to drive your car onto every day.
Having your garage floor repaired or resurfaced will not only help bring back a youthful look to your garage floor but will make it visually appealing. It can also add protection against certain surface stains and general wear-and-tear. There are several options to choose from when deciding on how to repair or resurface your garage floor. Each has its advantages, and choosing the best one for your floor may depend on the condition and type of your existing flooring.
Types of Garage Floor Repairs and Resurfacers:
Maybe your garage floor is in pretty good condition, aside a few minor cracks or blemishes. If you want to spruce up the flooring or repair cracks before they worsen, try using a polymer base concrete repair product. This can usually be done if the repairs are small repairs. Polymer concrete repair products may not be the answer if you have substantial damage to the flooring.
If your existing flooring is concrete, an added layer of regular concrete will not bond to the old. Instead, it will start to crumble and break away due to the fact that there are no bonding agents in regular concrete. On the other hand, to resurface with a concrete resurfacer, there are distinct bonding agents that help the new concrete bond and adhere to the old.
Concrete resurfacer is convenient in the fact that it doesn’t require you to break-up your existing slab, which can be difficult and costly. Another convenience is that it’s self-leveling. This means you won’t have to spend much time trying to level the concrete. Once you’ve laid the new surface, simply spread it out evenly, making sure to get all areas of the floor.
Concrete resurfacer only comes in one color – gray. However, you can add a concrete colorant to the mix to give it a unique look. Keep in mind, if you want the entire floor to look the consistent, you’ll want to resurface the entire floor and not just a part. Otherwise, you will have a mix-match of old and new looking concrete which is not visually appealing.
Many people enjoy the easy care of an epoxy covered garage floor. Some of the best attributes of epoxy are that it is strong, resilient and it lasts a long time. Epoxy helps to repel oil spills, stains and won’t easily chip or crack.
Giving your epoxy floor a unique look is easy. If you don’t want a plain gray epoxy, try adding specialized chips to your epoxy for some individuality or flare. You can customize the look of your epoxy flooring to give it the look of granite, terrazzo or another unique look.

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.
