What are your options for concrete floor covering products?
There are many options out there for concrete floor covering products, so it may be difficult to decide which product is the best choice for your needs. Here are some options for finishing your concrete floor, along with their advantages and disadvantages:
1. Garage floor paint: An inexpensive solution to covering your concrete floors, latex paint is intended for this purpose. While the affordability of this solution is appealing, it is mostly just a cosmetic fix and doesn’t provide much in the way of protecting your floor from future damage or stains.
2. Garage floor tiles: Garage floor tiles are quick and easy to install over your existing concrete floor, without the need for repairing or prepping the concrete before installation. However, with prices starting at an average of $2.50 per square foot, this option can get very expensive.
3. Rollout garage floor mats: If you’re looking for a quick and easy non-permanent solution, rollout garage floor mats, as their name implies, can easily be rolled out onto your garage floor, and rolled back up if you need to remove them or want to bring them to a new residence. The disadvantage to this flooring solution, however, is that mats can be damaged by petroleum products, and rubber tires may stick to them during hotter weather.
4. Epoxy floor coating: The most resilient flooring solution, epoxy floor coating resists stains and dents. Price-wise it is more expensive than mats or latex paint, but less expensive than garage floor tiles, and its longevity pays for itself.

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.
