What Type of Garage Floor Covering is Best for You?
Any house that is more than ten years old has probably seen some damage to its garage floor. Stains and cracks can ruin the look of your garage, making it look dull and dingy. You’ll want to find a product to cover your garage floor, but you may not be sure what the best option is.
There are tons of products on the market that can help your garage look its best. Deciding which one to use may be the hard part. However, you can narrow down your options using a few of these following questions. First, ask yourself what you want the garage floor to look like in the end. You can decide to have a matte finish, shiny finish, carpet, different colors and more. Visualize what you’d like and write it down.
Also, ask yourself how much your garage floor receives wear and tear. Do you use it as a garage, a work shed, and a storage space? That might require something a little more durable. If you park your prized possession car in there and take it for an occasional drive, then you might not need something as resilient.
So, what are your options? Well, you could choose carpet which would provide a nice look and a little cushion for your concrete. However, it doesn’t protect much against spilling and staining. You could install plastic tiles that fit together like puzzle pieces. These also provide decent protection, but substances can seep through and leave your concrete stained. They also have to be replaced very often since plastic is not an incredibly sturdy material.
You could also decide to paint your concrete; this would cover any current stains and possibly give it a visual appeal if you changed the color. However, most homeowners and flooring professionals agree that epoxy is often the best option for garage floor coverings in Wilmington, DE.
Epoxy is durable enough to withstand any wear and tear you can throw at it. It also is stain resistant. Epoxy is the most durable and long-lasting flooring option on the market. It can last upwards of 20 years and keep its aesthetic with proper maintenance. It is effortless to maintain. A simple sweep or mop every few weeks is plenty. Epoxy also increases the structural integrity of your concrete. Concrete is porous, and epoxy seeps into those pores making your floors physically stronger. Epoxy can also fill in any cracks or holes and cover stains on your concrete.
Epoxy is almost always the best option for any garage floor. Call in a group of professional epoxy technicians today to give you a quote and begin building your dream garage.

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.
