The Cosmetic Advantages of Epoxy for Your Garage Floor
Every part of the house contributes to how good it looks, and the same standard should apply to your garage. This space of the house is sometimes overlooked, but its appearance is just as important if your home goes on the market. If you’re concerned with how your garage looks, applying epoxy flooring in Wilmington, DE can give the entire space a clean, sharp look that will impress anyone who sees it.
The garage is directly connected to the outside world. Therefore, you’re bound to get a collection of dirt and debris from the outdoors than can accumulate over time. It can become a hassle to clean an untreated concrete garage floor once it gets too dirty. The benefits of applying an epoxy coating is that the product can repel dirt from outside. Its smooth surface also lets you sweep and vacuum as needed, instead of always having to break out noxious cleaning agents and a brush. Your garage will be noticeably cleaner every day with epoxy flooring added to the space.
Your car is an important part of your life if you must commute for work. In addition, having a vehicle allows you to go on trips and run errands with plenty of convenience. However, that automobile is the archenemy of your garage floor, especially if it’s leaking oil. The presence of oil stains on an untreated floor is about as unsightly as it gets. Additionally, it’s almost impossible to remove those stains by yourself when they happen. Epoxy coating can stop this frustrating issue by resisting oil spots. The molecular structure of epoxy is so tight that it can even repel oil, allowing you to clean up the car’s mess with little stress.
Any garage floor that is not treat is susceptible to visible cracks for a few different reasons. The foundation underneath the garage may shift at times. While it’s not enough to damage the home, you will certainly see it in the garage floor. Concrete is also a porous material and can retain moisture more than you realize. The outcome may be a warped floor that cracks on the surface. Similar issues happen when the floor expands or contracts from being too hot or too cold. Epoxy coating is amazing because its flexibility allows it to move with variations in the floor and prevent a visible separation. Your floor and your eyes will thank you.
The effects of flooding are similar to untreated concrete’s reaction to moisture, but worse. If rain is especially heavy, the seal on your garage door will not necessarily keep out the water. Once it comes in contact with the concrete, it gets absorbed. Not only can the concrete warp from so much moisture, but it also takes on a dingy appearance from dirty floodwaters. Epoxy flooring helps to stop this disastrous problem by repelling water in the first place. In fact, you can simply mop or squeegee any water right off of the surface. A helpful and practical floor coating has never looked so good.

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.
