The Risks of Not Hiring a Professional for Your Elmhurst Epoxy Flooring Install
Epoxy floors are a great way to protect your home’s floors from moisture and keep them looking good, but some homeowners make the mistake of attempting the installation by themselves or by not hiring epoxy flooring specialists. Here are some of the risks of not having an Elmhurst epoxy flooring specialist complete your installation:
1. Inadequate assessment of floor quality: Epoxy that is applied to a weak foundation or the substrate floor could result in a weak bond and a finish that won’t last. The floor’s top layer could eventually become detached from the cement if a proper flexible membrane is not installed.
2. Installing in poor humidity or temperature: If it is too humid when the installation is conducted, the floor won’t be thoroughly dry and the epoxy won’t bond well to it. That is why a water-insensitive epoxy resin is needed. Without this, the epoxy will not bond to the concrete.
3. Installing over floors that are too old or improperly prepped: Older floors will likely have a lot of wear and tear and more oil and grease on them than newer floors. There are specific procedures that need to be followed to prepare a concrete floor that has undergone a lot of wear, or the installation could fail.
When considering epoxy floors for your garage, basement, or other room in the home, it is important to hire a qualified contractor. Visit Floorguard.com to hire an Elmhurst epoxy flooring professional to complete your installation.

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.
