Staying Safe from COVID-19 During Your Home Improvement Projects, Part II
In part I of this blog, we discussed steps you can take to keep yourself, your family, and contractors safe when you undergo a home improvement project such as installing concrete floor covering products. The first blog discussed tips for before the contractors visit your home, here are a few for when they arrive:
Leave if possible: If at all possible, leave your home while contractors are present so that you can maintain the maximum amount of social distancing. If it isn’t possible to leave, stay in an area of your home that the contractors won’t need to access, and make sure any immunocompromised members of your family are not present.
Designate one point of entry: To minimize the amount of “touch points” from the contractors, designate one point of entry for them to come and go, and establish which areas of the home they will be in contact with. After they leave, be sure to give this area extra attention in your cleaning efforts.
Be patient: The pandemic is new territory for everyone, and most people are making their best efforts to be safe and considerate. Be patient with your contractors as they figure out how to navigate the new normal, and make an effort to be as transparent as possible and keep the lines of communication open.
These are just a few tips for keeping yourself and your contractors safe while undergoing a project such as installing concrete floor covering products. Be sure to speak to your contactor for their specific protocols, and refer to official information sources such as OSHA and the CDC to learn more.
My garage was so cluttered and a total mess, I was always embarrassed to have the door open! Not anymore!! Floorguard® helped me design a perfect system for my family, it’s amazing!! Now I keep my garage door open for all to see, it’s organized, and absolutely beautiful!!!

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.
