Using Epoxy Flooring for Enhanced Maintenance
Many homeowners can forget that their garage floor needs as much maintenance as any other part of their home. It can stain, crack, and get dirty which can ultimately diminish the overall look of your home. In order to combat this, many homeowners sweep or pressure wash their garage floor to keep it sparkling and beautiful. However, this may not always get rid of stains and certainly won’t help with any cracking.
Luckily, there is now a product that can ultimately eliminate your garage’s maintenance needs, and it is called epoxy garage flooring. Epoxy is somewhat new to the flooring world, and it has certainly been upgraded and perfected since it hit the market. It now also comes with plenty of customizable options, but what exactly is epoxy.
Epoxy is a coating that fills every pore within a concrete surface. It strengthens it from the inside out this way, and leaves the concrete floor with a new finish of your choosing. Because your garage is always a part of the main floor and your house’s foundation, it is important to keep it strong. It experiences much more traffic, vehicle or otherwise, than the rest of your house’s foundation which makes it more prone to wear and tear. Because of this, you’ll want to protect it from any shifting or cracking that could eventually affect the rest of your home’s foundation.
Coating the concrete of your house with epoxy flooring can also add great value to your home. It enhances its beauty, functionality, and durability all at the same time. While the garage isn’t the first thing you think to update for potential buyers, it can quickly become a reason not to buy. Cracking and unsightly stains in your garage may be a warning of other potential issues to potential buyers.
Maintaining your average concrete garage floor can be difficult and time-consuming. It can also end up costing you money every 6 months to a year. With epoxy, a one-time application fee and an occasional sweep and mop is all you’ll ever need to maintain your new floors. It will be a joy to possible buyers to see such a beautiful and well-kept garage in what could be their new home.
Whether you’re selling your house or not, contact your local epoxy application company and talk to them about your options. It will be an investment you won’t regret. Between adding value to your home and endless customizations, epoxy will lighten up your concrete and your life.

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.
