Use Your Garage For Something Other Than Storage
When you own a home, the primary objective is to provide shelter and comfort for your family and prized possessions. Fulfilling this responsibility could turn into a challenge if space becomes an issue. One option for solving the space question is to move into a larger home; however, that may not always be possible. One area of the home that can be used to increase the need for space is the garage, but that will require a few improvements depending on your goal. Part of the drawback with the garage is that homeowners end up throwing everything in there and pretty soon the garage is overrun by tools, boxes and motor oil.
When a family begins to expand and one or both parents need a little alone time a man cave or entertainment room can be created from the dusty confines of the garage. Naturally, the walls’ ceiling and the ground will need to be renovated to change the appearance, but that will be easy enough to accomplish. Once you have figured out how you want your personal space to appear it will be necessary to invite a professional to look at your ideas and make the necessary changes. You can save on the carpet by using epoxy flooring instead.
There are lots of individuals who would like to live healthier lifestyles, but can’t afford the additional expense for a membership at the gym. Rather than allow your health to deteriorate the next-best thing would be to purchase a rowing machine or a stationary bike. While these are reasonable choices, if both parents want the same thing, then why not consider some garage floor coverings and a few pieces of equipment to help turn the garage into your own personal gym. There will be an initial investment involved, but the benefits will be far reaching.
There are plenty of homeowners who consider themselves as entrepreneurs and end up starting their own business. Home-based businesses are easy enough to get off the ground, but once things begin to pick up the issue of space may present a problem. In countless situations, the entrepreneur will rent a small facility to keep their materials and products they intend to sell. A garage with new epoxy flooring, painted walls, bright lights and a decent supply of office equipment will provide you with your own office and remove the need to rent office space for your business.
Making Room For Parents
A home that has enough room for all the toys and business capabilities could mean that your automobile will have a place to stay. But what happens when one of the in laws passes away, and you don’t want to place the surviving family member in a retirement home? You should not be expected to rearrange your entire home when you can easily have a professional add some garage floor coverings and some other choice renovations to give them their own space. Depending on the size you might even consider limiting your renovations to half of the garage.

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.
