The Cosmetic Advantage of Epoxy Garage Coating
Unfortunately, concrete is a lot like our skin in that it has pores that can soak up dirt, moisture, and other particles. Because of this, concrete is also immensely prone to staining. This means oils, pollen, dirt, paint, and other chemicals can easily stain your concrete turning it into an unsightly mix of stains and colors. While it may not seem like a huge deal to have a couple stains on your concrete, it can actually negatively affect the value of your home.
Luckily, there is an easy option that will enhance the strength of your concrete, prevent staining, and update the look of your concrete whether it is in your basement, garage, or patio. The answer is epoxy. Epoxy flooring in Wilmington, DE can cover up old stains as well as prevent new ones from happening. Because it is not porous, it does not stain easily and is also much easier to clean.
Epoxy can be another do-it-yourself project, however that is not recommended. Epoxy can be quite temperamental to work with, so it is always advised to hire a professional. If epoxy is misused, it can come out looking patchy and lumpy while also not adding the needed protection you’d hope from a new layer of an epoxy coating.
Luckily, trained professionals will be able to complete your epoxy job with accuracy and efficiency. They know how to manipulate epoxy in order to tailor it to your needs. They can add features such as a hypoallergenic blend, a non-slip formula and more. They can also customize the color and design to match your home’s design and aesthetics.
There is also an intensive treatment process your floors will need before the epoxy is even applied. If the preparation is done incorrectly, then the epoxy will not adhere correctly and look lumpy or be uneven and textured instead of smooth and flat. This process involves some high tech machines that may be expensive to rent or hard for a novice to use properly. This may be a simple power wash, but often times professionals prefer to use a high-tech buffing machine to buff and clean the floors thoroughly. Obviously, this is the only option if the epoxy is going inside.
Then the process of actually applying the epoxy can be tedious and frustrating. For all of these reasons, it is best to leave the job to the professionals. This way, you can be happy with your new epoxy floors that won’t stain and are easy to clean. Otherwise, you might find yourself knee-deep an epoxy mess shelling out too much money on a repair job, so hire a professional to resurface your floors today!

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.
