Ring in a New Year With a New Garage Floor
The New Year has been historically known for people renovating their lifestyles, but what about your garage floor? More and more home and business owners are starting to trade in traditional polyurethanes for high-quality epoxy flooring. Epoxy paints and finishes are beginning to gain preference over acrylic and polyurethane finishes due to their heightened resistance and longevity.
The main focal point to consider when looking for a new garage floor, is of course the functionality surrounding each option. Although polyurethane coatings can present themselves in a striking manner, they are not always the most sensible choice when it comes to garage floor options. Garages are known for their high levels of moisture, and epoxy products are rich in moisture-resistant properties in order to prevent future damage.
Even if your concrete floor has cracked while setting, epoxy coatings come equipped with the ability to camouflage any imperfections. The lifespan of the garage floor epoxy options also plays a huge role in the finish’s functionality. Even in conditions where a floor unit may endure maximum wear and tear, epoxy flooring still stays in superb condition for upwards of 20 years. Traditional coating options tend to only hold up well when cleaned with auto-scrubbers each day, but epoxy floors maintain their quality overtime, even with minimal maintenance.Durability and functionality aren’t the only reasons why garage floor epoxy finishes outweigh it’s competitors.
Many feel as though epoxy is also the best option when considering cosmetic factors. Not only do epoxy products come in a more wide-range of colors as opposed to other polishes, but they also come with anti-scratch components to protect your floor from any future blemishes. Epoxy finishes are also the leader in ensuring that stains don’t permanently set into your floor’s finish. Epoxy paints and coatings are known for being highly stain-resistant, which is perfect for those who tend to work on mechanical projects in their garage space. With it’s scratch-protecting and waterproof technology, your garage floors will look stunning years after the initial renovation.

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.
