Update your Garage this Winter
The winter months bring the cold, the snow and other conditions that make it nearly impossible to make upgrades to the exterior of your house. However, that does not mean you are unable to make any kind of upgrade to your home. You just need to look inward. Your garage is one of the most neglected areas of the house, yet you are able to do several different things to it that not only boost the value of your home but make the garage a much more functional element to your house. After all, a garage is so much more than just a place to park your vehicle and store boxes of random items.
But what are you able to do when it comes to a physical upgrade to your garage that isn’t going to take forever, because after all, you are going to need to park your vehicle in the garage during heavy snow storms (nobody wants to scrape off their windshield and brush off the car in the morning before heading out to for)? Garage flooring can boost the way you use your garage and truly add excellent value to the house.
The epoxy flooring Philadelphia PA has to offer is going to allow you to do so much more in the garage. The cold cement is not all that conducive for anything. Sure it is solid, but it absorbs stains. Whenever you drive your car into the garage or have it sit for more than a few hours, it is going to collect both dirt from the tires and oil from the vehicle (along with other fluids leaked from the car). Cleaning off the cement is difficult, but a brand new flooring makes it possible to simply wipe it up and move on. Thanks to the garage floor coverings Philadelphia PA, you no longer need to worry about stains or the look of the floor, because the epoxy makes it instantly beautiful.
This is so much more than just a new coat of paint or stain. It adds texture so the cold cement is not as slippery as it normally is during the winter. It also seals in the cement to prevent anything from absorbing into the pores of the cement, which is why it is so easy to stain. There are different materials that can be mixed with the epoxy that allows you to spread it across the current floor and make it easy to clean and durable. In the cold months, there is a chance some snow and ice can make its way into the garage. You don’t want to slip heading to the garage, pulling out the shovel or doing anything else. This extra grip is going to make it more secure and also help boost the value of the house, making it a truly win win as an upgrading during the winter.

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.
