Use Epoxy On Your Deck to Give It a New Look
How many times have you had your friends over for a BBQ or football game party and been embarrassed for them to step out on your deck? Typical wooden decks can age quickly making them look old and weathered even if they are somewhat new. The elements continuously berate the wood on your porch, damaging it over time.
Most homeowners are not entirely sure how to fix this because they are unaware that they can apply to their deck. You can call your epoxy technician today to have them take a look at your porch and figure out the best way to resurface it with epoxy and improve the overall look and function of your deck.
Many homeowners also attempt to purchase an epoxy DIY kit. However, these are probably not the best way to go. One mishap with epoxy can ruin the whole job, and fixing an epoxy mistake is much more expensive than hiring a professional to do it right the first time.
So, what is the process for resurfacing a deck with epoxy? First, the installers must prep the porch for the epoxy application; this involves clearing the deck of any furniture, grills, carpets, or whatever else you have on your porch. It then needs to be thoroughly washed of any debris, dirt, or dust that has collected there. After that, your technicians will sand the deck to create a smooth surface. Then, any chips or cracks in the wood must be filled in with a compound to ensure the epoxy lays evenly across the porch. Then the deck will be rewashed, and a sealant will be applied to protect the wood. After that, your technicians will use a primer to make it ready for the epoxy application.
They will then choose the correct epoxy for your deck; they will also keep in mind your desires such as what type of finish you want, what color you want, and more. They will even have all the required tools and supplies needed to complete the job well. The technicians will then begin to create and mix the epoxy before they start the application. They will proceed to apply multiple coats to reach your desired thickness. They will then use a top coat sealant to ensure your epoxy remains protected and functional in all weather.
So, research some epoxy installation companies in Wilmington, DE to find out what company fits your needs best. Look for good reviews and testimonials in your research. Then, call up the company you chose to start your epoxy installation. You won’t regret hiring a group to complete the job for you.

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.
