Unprotected garage floors are left prone to many stains
It is quite easy to stain concrete due to its porous nature. Concrete likes to soak up any liquid that has fallen, spilled, leaked, or splashed onto it. Teaching your teenager how to complete an oil change, your latest DIY project, or your toddler’s art phase may all contribute to your concrete being a multicolored mess. More often than not, your best solution to this problem is a new coating of epoxy applied to your garage’s stained concrete.
Although you can add epoxy to your honey-do list, it is best to talk to a professional about applying an epoxy coat for you. This is because epoxy requires a process that professionals know well. While completing the job, professionals also have a trained eye that can spot other damages and suggest repairs for those as well.
Unknown to many, your current garage floor will need to go through a preparation process before its new coat of epoxy. You must first empty your garage completely. This is one of the number one reasons people decide not to go through with an epoxy coating, however, it is entirely worth it! Next, a thorough pressure washing of your flooring is necessary to get rid of all dirt, debris, and dust prior to the epoxy application. It is also recommended to hire a professional for this job because believe it or not, too much water pressure can harm your current concrete.
If you don’t apply enough pressure, your floors will not be clean enough for the coating of epoxy. Stains can also be completely or slightly removed with a proper pressure washing, depending on the severity of the stain. This is another reason to make sure you have a professional pair of eyes overseeing this project. If a stain is not completely removed, it could possibly bleed through the epoxy coat causing it to not completely adhere to your concrete.
If you are calling a professional for an epoxy flooring in Philadelphia PA, it is most likely to help cover existing stains while simultaneously protecting your floors against future stains. Epoxy requires quite a few coats, and they are all applied for a different purpose. If even one layer of epoxy is not applied properly, it can ruin the whole project. This is another addition to the list of reasons to call in a professional for this type of job.
Making sure the epoxy is applied perfectly during each coat is essential because if it is not done properly, the epoxy will be prone to stains which eliminate the original purpose of the project. Again, it is highly recommended to contact a professional epoxy flooring service for this type of project to ensure the entire process is done properly start to finish. This will ensure you are happy with your new garage floor and will stay happy with your garage floors for many, many years.

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.
