Traditional Epoxy Garage Floor Covering
Epoxy is traditionally utilized to cover flooring areas of different types of spaces. Some of those spaces include in-hour flooring, manufacturing plants, factories, and even ships and boats. Epoxy flooring provides a tremendous amount of durability, as its strong structure is highly resistant to liquids. Epoxy flooring also has the ability of sustaining through rough instances of abuse, such as cleaning chemicals, oil spills, and most other industrially composed chemicals.
When a constructionist utilizes epoxy for their flooring jobs, they should feel assured of knowing their task will be well worth the time. When using epoxy to cover one’s floor at home, the homeowner should ensure that they are prepared with the proper tools and equipment. Since epoxy is a very strong material, it should not come in contact with anything other than its intended materials to be bonded with.
As a home can easily be considered as being one of the most valuable assets an individual or family can have ownership of, it is in their greatest interest and right to do everything they can to ensure their property is constructed in a way to sustain through any kind of abuse or contact. Epoxy floors are well reputed for providing a type of resistance that should make the property owners feel comfortable.
They can relax when thinking about walking across the floor with a jar or bucket of chemicals, knowing their floors are protected. Using epoxy for one’s flooring needs also provides the area with low porosity, in which falling debris and dust will have a very tough time in making their way under the top surface of the floor. Also, the tough covering of epoxy prevents liquids or oils from seeping below the surface.
There are a few precautions a homeowner should be aware of upon installing their floors with epoxy. If the floor is exposed to sunlight for long periods of time, the epoxy may become prone to turning yellow and chalky. This occurs from direct contact of the sun’s UV rays, which works to break down the bonding materials of epoxy. Not only does such an occurrence affect the overall appearance of the floor, it also diminishes the main purpose of utilizing epoxy in the first place. Therefore, it is best to use epoxy in indoor settings only. However, like just about everything else, there is a loophole to the issue of UV rays affecting the epoxy’s impact.
UV protective coatings are available for purchase to use after the setting of the epoxy’s final coating stage. The protective coatings work phenomenally, and allows the user to utilize epoxy in outdoor settings if all steps of the coating stages are applied properly. After reviewing such benefits, it is safe to conclude that epoxy is one of the best options for bonding strong materials together.

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.
