What To Consider With Gargae Floor Coatings
A tired old looking garage floor can be made to look new again. Resurfacing the floor will offer a younger look to the floor and take away any unsightly cracks or breaks in the present concrete floor. There are many considerations that need to be made when considering resurfacing, so always be sure to hire a certified professional to get the best results.
Another thing that needs to be considered is the weather. While the floor to the garage is inside, a certain heat level must be maintained in order to get the best results. Many products require warmer or cooler temperatures, so having a professional garage floor technician assess the job is important.
The technician will offer the best suggestions for the time of year, temperatures, and even region that the floor is in. This will assure that the best possible look is acquired and the job is professional looking. On the norm, temperatures of at least 50 degrees are required to assure the best outcome from the resurfacing project.
While many feel that resurfacing their garage floor is simple enough and they can do it themself, there are many aspects that need to be thought about when trying to deal with this type of project. Is a resurfacer what is really wanted? Does the individual want a rubber type flooring instead? If the rubber is desired, then the individual will need to have the specific knowledge that will prepare the floor properly for the new surface.
Think also about whether or not the floor will be kept as a concrete one with an epoxy coating on it. This means that specialized equipment will be needed and specialized knowledge of how to use that equipment will be needed. While there are some that possess this level of knowledge, it is generally only had by those who have trained in resurfacing garage floors.
Having a professional resurface the floor in the garage is the best choice to assure that all options are considered and educated choices are made. This will lead to a new look for the garage that will last for many years and one will be proud to show off. Get an estimate, talk about your choices and be sure that the technician hired can translate your desires into a garage floor resurfacing project that you love.
My garage was so cluttered and a total mess, I was always embarrassed to have the door open! Not anymore!! Floorguard® helped me design a perfect system for my family, it’s amazing!! Now I keep my garage door open for all to see, it’s organized, and absolutely beautiful!!!

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.
