Tired of a Dusty and Dark Garage
After putting the tools all away and having your garage set up and ready to go to work in you realize that everything looks perfect, except the floor. The oil stained concrete is uneven and messy; it makes the entire garage look unclean somehow. No matter what you do, it is always dark and dusty looking; dull and lackluster.
Many people don’t even realize that there is a solution to just a bumpy concrete slab; epoxy garage floor coating. Basically, a coat of epoxy is run over the concrete, helping to smooth out the imperfections and give the floor a unique shine. While it might sound too good to be true; like something that would only last a short while and then be destroyed, epoxy is actually quite durable and resistant to most issues that would ruin or dull something different.
How an epoxy garage floor works
Resin and hardener are mixed together to form a hard and sturdy plastic that is adhered to the cement flooring of a garage, or other surface of choice. Since the mixture is so good at molding to the target, a fresh and leveled out surface is generally the outcome.
However, while having an epoxy garage floor is certainly satisfactory, it isn’t always so easily done by a non-professional. There is a larger process that takes places, from correctly mixing the substances to proper installation and smoothing. Epoxy isn’t too difficult to work with, but for the absolute best results, and to make certain the job is done right the first time, saving consumers money, it is recommended being installed by a professional.
A professional is someone that will have already had both training and experience with preparing and installing epoxy. Whereas trying to do it yourself could be messy, time-consuming and difficult. That isn’t even taking into account the fact that epoxy needs to be mixed, applied and set a certain way in order to get the best possible results. A professional epoxy garage flooring expert can get this job done quickly and the most efficiently.
Having that perfect flooring for your garage is the icing on the cake for a garage owner, whether it is to be used in a business sense or just for personal want. Using epoxy can ensure that both of these goals can be met perfectly, promising many years of use and looks. Since it is a chemical reaction, epoxy not only bonds to the surface it is put against, but it also protects it.
Epoxy flooring ensure years of safety for the surface underneath it because it is not only a sturdy protector, but it also beads water off, repelling it from seeping in and ruining anything, can withstand heavy use and weight and fends off wear and tear when properly installed. This is another reason that having it installed by a professional is important.
In conclusion, an epoxy floor for any garage is the solution to many issues, and it looks beautiful when installed correctly.

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.
