What is stopping you from Applying Epoxy Floors in your House?
The answer is simple, nothing, this is because epoxy flooring is affordable and it has all of the perks that you are looking for in a floor. This is why epoxy coating is now quite a popular choice among home owners as well as industry plant owners. So if you are thinking of applying epoxy in your garage but you need to be convinced, then you came to the right place. We are going to discuss some of the reasons that would encourage any one to utilize this kind of floor coverings.
The first thing is that the epoxy floor has the ability to add life to your floor. So if you dislike your current floor because it is dull and gray, covering it with epoxy will make it look bright and shiny, and it will give it a touch of life. It will not only do that, as epoxy will also make your floors much safer by preventing slipping, which will keep garage accidents to a minimum.
Epoxy also acts as a protective sealant. This is why it is perfect for garage floors as the garage always witnesses spillages that can easily stain other types of garage floor coverings. So by installing epoxy, you can easily wipe the stain without any hassle by using cleaning agents. No need to scrub the concrete floors any more to get a stain out. This is because epoxy is a non porous material, so any stains will not penetrate its pours and will remain on the outer surface so they can be easily cleaned.
This kind of flooring is capable of withstanding and absorbing pressure, which is perfect for garages because they are often subjected to various pressures, whether from the vehicles that are backing in and out of it or from the tools that are usually stored in it. This is why it is the most commonly used material for garages, industrial plants and airplane hangars and any other space that is subjected to constant and heavy traffic.
On top of all of that, epoxy is quite affordable, which is certainly one of the advantages of this kind of floor coverings. Not only are they affordable, but they are available at any department store.
On the other hand, implementing epoxy flooring is not a simple task. This is why it is always better to hire a specialist to get the job done for you. All you have to do is tell him what you want exactly because epoxy floors come in different shapes colors.
The specialist will be able to prepare the concrete floors before applying the epoxy by scrubbing it, cleaning it and making sure that there are no debris or grime, this way, when the epoxy is installed, it will adhere to the floors and it will not peel off. Even the installation process itself requires experience and certain tools, two things that a good contractor will have to offer 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.
