What Is The Best Option For Your Garage Floor?
The garage is never an easy place to maintain and it requires time to make it look sleek and clean. Once dirty, it can get increasingly difficult and frustrating to keep everything in check. The garage floor is usually the most affected and it’s not an easy task to fix it, whether it gets cracked or dirty with oil stains or other such elements that cause significant damage. Busy people do not have enough time to maintain it, and the state of the garage can be demoralizing to someone going to work in the morning and returning home to that scenery.
Epoxy garage coatings are a great solution that can improve the look of your garage and make it look clean once again, helping to prevent any further damage and fixing the existing problems that your floor might have. Over time the concrete gets close to impossible to clean efficiently, which is why epoxy floors have been created, as they are durable, very easy to clean and on top of that are a garage flooring option that is inexpensive and accessible to everyone.
Many stores throughout the nation offer special DIY kits, designed for people who want to take matter into their own hands and put everything together themselves. While this can be an efficient method, someone who does not have enough time on their hands can opt to employ the services of a company which will do all the correct assessment of the situation and all the work necessary.
On top of the epoxy floor is usually applied a thin layer of ‘urethane’ topcoat which can offer better results, as well as a number of unique characteristics that can make the garage floor stand out and be more resistant. The polyurethane topcoat can provide many benefits, such as stopping the floor from yellowing, and making it more resistant to scratches or to chemicals. Also, it can prevent the floor from losing its gloss and keeps it easy to clean. A top-quality polyurethane topcoat can be a great investment for anyone looking to make a change in the way their garage looks, as it offers high-performance and durability, as well as extra advantages such as slip-resistance.
From minor imperfections to big cracks in the concrete floor, epoxy is so durable that it stands out as the best choice when it comes to renovating your garage and make it a part of the house and no longer just a storage unit. Epoxy floors come in many forms, among the many options that one can choose from are the solid epoxy floors, the decorative marbled epoxy floors or the waterproof flooring, all of them cost efficient.
As with any decision, thorough research is highly advisable before picking out the best option suited to your needs, and in case of a DIY kit, the opinion of a professional might be needed, as he will assess your flooring requirements. There is a long list of products and combinations of products available on the market, and it is currently incredibly easy to find the best type of flooring service.

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.
