The Importance of Garage Floor Coatings
Although your garage is not the main “hangout” area in your home, it is ideal to at least keep the area updated with garage floor coatings and things like fresh coats of paint on the interior walls to give it an organized feel. Not only does the coating give your garage a more sophisticated look, it also helps the floor to be more durable throughout the year. The coatings tend to last for extended periods of time making the upkeep of your garage less time consuming. The two common coating used of garage flooring is epoxy and polyurethane. Both work extremely well and are easy to apply.
If you have children in your home it is critical to add garage floor coatings immediately. As falling on concrete can be painful and inflict injuries, adding a coating on top of it will help lower the risks of an injury. Another great safety benefit to adding a coating on top of the concrete is the easy clean up when glass is broken on the floor. If there is no coating on your garage floors the glass tends to linger in the cracks and becomes a potential hazard.
Maintaining your garage floors tends to be much easier when an epoxy or polyurethane coating is added. As concrete is impossible to mop, the coating will allow you to sweep and wash your floors with ease at the end of every day. When moping your floor be sure to use a PH neutral cleaner to keep the surface from appearing foggy or smudged. Although people may never criticize the appearance of your garage floor, it is self-fulfilling to walk in your garage and see a beautiful shine as you walk across the floor.
Although researching garage floor coatings can give you some sort of idea on where to start and how the process goes, it is beneficial to have a professional tend to your flooring. They will know exactly what brand will work the best with your flooring and they are also highly knowledgeable with how much chemicals to use without damaging your garage floor. You may think it is simple and can quickly be done, but always keep in mind that one accident can lead to double the money spent.

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.
