Why Choose Epoxy Flooring
When it comes to your garage floor, you probably have a bare concrete surface that the builder put in place. Over time, the concrete is damaged by wear and tear, and it can start to look tired and worn. You can keep it looking great by investing in epoxy coatings that make the floor more attractive and durable. Before you consider using a basic paint or other type of covering, consider these benefits of epoxy flooring.
Unlike paint that eventually peels, epoxy bonds permanently with concrete for a better seal. Air and water cannot get beneath the epoxy to undermine the adhesion and cause problems in the future. This permanent bond lasts longer so that you can get more years of service out of your garage floor coating.
Stain and Fade Resistant
Most substances are susceptible to sun damage, but epoxy can withstand UV damage. It’s not as likely to fade in the sunlight, so your floor will continue looking like new for years to come. The non-porous finish won’t absorb liquids, and that helps you avoid unsightly stains. If something spills on the floor, you just need to wipe it up and clean the area with a little water to keep it looking sharp.
When you bought your home, you probably weren’t given a choice about the color of your garage or basement floor. While you may be happy with the basic gray color of concrete, you certainly don’t have to settle for that. Epoxy coatings come in an incredible range of colors. Put a lovely tan in your workshop or use a deep green for the basement floor. Make your patio more welcoming by using a blue that matches the sky on a clear, summer day. You can also choose colors that look like granite or marble if you want a more upscale finish on walkways, your garage floor or even the foyer of your business.
With the waterproof finish, epoxy flooring is very easy to care for. It won’t stain like concrete, peel like paint or fall apart the way some tiles will. Once the floor is swept, you just have to mop it with a damp sponge to pick up any residue. There’s no need to spend time scrubbing with degreasers or other concrete cleaners because the surface won’t absorb dirt and stains. Keeping your garage floor clean and attractive will be easier than ever before when you invest in the right coating.
There are many benefits to going with epoxy coatings. They’re far more cost-effective than decorative concrete, and you can choose from any number of decorative finishes. The surface can easily handle the weight of your car because of its iron-like bond with the concrete. It’s appropriate for garages, basements and other areas throughout your home. You’ll love the look, and you’ll love how easy it is to care for even more. If you’re tired of the basic concrete floor in your garage, then make the investment in epoxy for a more attractive and highly durable finish.

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.
