Using Epoxy Coating for Other Surfaces
Epoxy has become one of the top solutions for protecting and resurfacing the concrete of garage floors. Its unrivaled durability, beautiful finishes, and long-lasting guarantee has homeowners chomping at the bit to have it installed in their own home. What many homeowners, or business owners, have not found out, is that garage epoxy can be a beautiful addition to other parts of a home or other facility.
Epoxy has the ability to cover and resurface and concrete material. Through the application, the concrete itself becomes stronger and more eye-catching. We often spend Summers on the back patio cooking up a BBQ or celebrating Independence Day. You might have a pool where family and friends come over for Summer birthday bashes and pool parties.
Hosting parties and other events can make any homeowner intensely aware of their house, and the backyard is no exception! Luckily, epoxy can help a patio go from dull and dingy to shiny and sparkling as if it should be in a Better Homes & Garden magazine.
It is best to start the epoxy application process by calling a local epoxy professional. Make sure to address all your needs and wants in the initial consultation so that your technician knows exactly what you envision. Together you can select color epoxy to match designs, finishes and other features like a non-slip coating to surround the pool.
Professional epoxy technicians will be able to complete the application the right way the first time. They can ensure you achieve your goals and love your new backyard. They may also have suggestions based on the description you give them which may be helpful and ensure your epoxy performs how you want as well as looks how you want.
Business owners should also think about where they can upgrade to epoxy. An auto repair shop may benefit from the non-slip formula. The stain resistance will also help the shop to shine with cleanliness for their customers. A hospital or other medical facility may benefit from a mix of the hypoallergenic and non-slip formulas. This way, pathogens won’t be housed or grow in the flooring of the facility and nurses can swiftly make their way to their patients without fear of falling.
There are so many ways to use epoxy to improve your home, your business, and your life. Take a look at your home or business and consider where you can upgrade your home to a sparkly, new epoxy coating. Whether it’s your garage, patio, medical facility, or auto shop, epoxy can take any building to another level of beauty and professionalism mixed with safety and functionality.

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.
