The Durability of an Epoxy Flooring Application
Understanding what you want for your concrete floor is a great thing, especially when you are considering its durability. You might be thinking; it depends on the usage. Well, you are not entirely wrong but, have you ever considered epoxy for your garage?
Epoxy flooring covers and paints add beauty and color to any concrete floor when used in a basement or garage floor coating. It is excellent because of its durability mainly when you use it in your packing area where the vehicles hot tires can cause some damage to the floor; the paint usually peels off because of the heat when you use other floorings.
The epoxy floor is the greatest you can use in areas with high traffic. They are capable of withstanding a wide variety of transportation including forklift, vehicle traffic as well as foot traffic. It feels good when you know your flooring is free from the traffic danger.
Other types of flooring may not be in a position to sustain massive trafficking; they tear and wear quickly when subjected to high traffic. With such type of flooring, you need to wax it openly and recoat it so that it can look presentable. However, epoxy is different from such types of flooring and can endure different levels of traffic without many repairs.
Apart from taking massive levels of traffic, Epoxy floors can also endure a lot of mass. They are fitted in areas where heavy loads of machinery are used daily such as the hospital, airport barns, and the fire units. The flooring in such places is well kept without scratching or denting on them by the machines.
The typical epoxy floor has an excellent flexural strength. In any case, you feel that you need an even stronger level, you can also purchase garage flooring in more layers that will be ideal for areas that require more scratch resistance.
The epoxy floors can withstand heavy traffic as well as the massive loads, and the substantial impact. In any case, you have employees who are all time dragging heavy materials and carelessly dropping elements that might harm the floor; you should worry less with the epoxy floor because such cases will not be harmful to the level. They can withstand such high impressions and are hard to scratch damage and dent.
It is advisable for someone to take care of their floor if you want to have it for an extended period without repairs. In any case, you notice some scratch or dent on your level, and it is right for you to deal with it early enough before it gets worse because you might find yourself having a new floor that will cost you much.
If your industry needs extreme cold, or extreme heat, the epoxy floors are the best for you. Contingent on the nature of epoxy that you fix and the actual fitting process, some epoxy coverings can tolerate the harsh situations plus deep freezers.

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.
