Some Information about Covering Garage Floors
Garages are places where vehicles and various forms of equipment are sometimes stored. Garages are also areas where a lot of work may be done, such as car and bicycle repair. Tools are also sometimes kept in garages, and dropping tools on a concrete garage floor may cause cracks in that concrete surface. Oil and grease are also sometimes found in garages and they can stain concrete if they are dropped on a concrete garage floor. There are a number of options available for those who are looking to change their garage flooring. Paint and tile are two options that a person could choose to use as garage floor coverings.
Some Information about Using Paint as a Garage Floor Covering
If a homeowner is interested in changing their garage floor, they may want to consider covering it with a more functional and attractive surface. Paint is one kind of garage floor covering option that some people choose. There are some types of paint that are made to be applied to concrete and they help cover spots and scratches that may be undesirable to a homeowner. The paint option also has the benefit of being easily changed. Paint can be removed using paint removers or paint can be covered with another layer of paint. One of the disadvantages of using paint, however, is that it may be easy to scratch or chip a painted floor. Two other benefits of a painted garage floor is that paint is relatively cheap compared to some other kinds of garage floor coverings, and paint is easy to change.
Some Information about Using Tile to Cover a Garage Floor
Tile is another kind of material that is used to cover garage floors and it is more durable and more expensive than paint. Plastic tile is a very popular kind of tile that is often used in garages. Installing tile on a garage floor is generally more expensive than painting a garage floor, but it has benefits that may make the extra money spent on it worth the investment. Tile, generally, can last for a longer time than paint and it is very durable. Tile may also be easy to install. Rubber is another kind of garage floor material. Rubber surfaces are not easy to crack when metal objects fall on them. They also have strong grip.
Changing the flooring of a garage may help give a garage a more elegant and attractive look. It can also help improve the functionality of a garage by helping make the floor easier to walk on. For those looking to install a garage floor, it may be helpful to research the various kinds of garage flooring. If a homeowner chooses to have garage flooring professionally installed, it may be helpful for them to try to find a professional that has the skills to properly install the type of garage flooring that that homeowner is interested in.

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.
