3 Considerations When Choosing Your Floor Sealer
Are you renovating your garage and considering adding some protection to the floors? Here are three things to consider when choosing a floor sealer for your garage floor resurfacing project:
1: Do you park your car in the garage?
The weight of your vehicle and the heat and traction from its tires will cause repeated wear on the surface below it over time. Make sure the floor sealer you have chosen is one that can withstand repeated heavy use in the same spots, as well as resist heat and scuffs from the tires.
2. What is your climate like?
The climate that you live in won’t just determine the best type of floor sealer for your garage, but the best time of year in which you should have it installed. Humid conditions can prevent the sealer from curing quickly, delaying project times. You may also want to consider testing for humidity and acidity to ensure that the correct pH balance is utilized in the sealer, otherwise, the floor quality could degrade quickly.
3. How much maintenance are you willing to perform?
The amount of time you are willing to spend maintaining and cleaning your garage floors is also a factor in which sealer is best for your property. While acrylic may be the cheapest and easiest to apply, epoxy requires less maintenance and is more repellant to spills and damage.
From epoxy floor coating to acrylic or polyurethane, there are several options for floor sealants. When you are planning your garage floor resurfacing project, and you should base your choice on the specific needs that you have for your garage space.

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.
