Where to Install Epoxy Flooring
Epoxy flooring is an easy alternative to an otherwise unsightly concrete floor. This type of flooring can provide a custom floor covering for virtually any instance. They are great for garages or boathouses, and many businesses and warehouses have also opted for an epoxy flooring instead of plain concrete.
Why Epoxy Flooring
Concrete, while cheap, can become dirty and damaged fairly easily. While you mainly find concrete floors in seldom used areas, like garages, basements, and warehouses, be advised that this is not your only option for flooring. There really isn’t any point in putting down carpet or tile in a garage, but an epoxy flooring can give it a much cleaner appearance, while still being very durable, no matter what kind of damage you throw at it. Epoxy flooring can last much longer than most concrete floors, and by adding these to your home, you can add value to your house, which is a huge bonus, especially if you may need to sell your home one day.
Where to Install Epoxy Flooring
Epoxy flooring is most popularly installed in garages and boathouses. These types of areas tend to get used the hardest, and epoxy flooring can stand up to the weight of vehicles, and won’t absorb stains as easily as concrete. That means, even if you have a car that may leak oil, your garage floor will still look virtually as good as it did the day it was installed. Many commercial garages prefer to use epoxy flooring as well. It makes clean up easier, and also gives an overall more aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, which can be important in attracting new customers. Basements are also ideal candidates for epoxy flooring. It can be an easy and affordable way to help finish off basement rooms without the cost or upkeep of carpeting.
Advantages of Epoxy Flooring
Epoxy flooring can be customized as much or as little as you like. There are many different color combinations of flecks that can be applied, and there are also different finishes you can have applied as well. This means you can incorporate your favorite sports team’s colors into your home fairly inconspicuously, or merely match your home’s décor as much or as little as you want. Businesses can incorporate the colors from their company’s logo, or go with a simple gray and white if you would rather keep it simple and neutral. You can also get the same kind of glossy shine as you would with hardwood flooring, a more metallic finish that looks great in garages, or a matte finish, which can be very practical.
The next time you look at your stained, dirty garage or basement floor and wish there was something you could do about it to make it more attractive to the eye while still being functional and practical, consider epoxy flooring. The cost is very affordable, and can be just what you’re looking for to improve the appeal of your home or business.

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.
