Guardian Garage Floors founder Jon Schuetz and co-owner Stephen Andersen and their spouses selflessly protected this country overseas as United States Marines. After completing his time in the service, Jon built Guardian Garage Floor in 2008 and reached out to his Marine buddy, Stephen, in 2018 to join him in his floor-covering venture and help him grow the company. 

Guardian Garage Floors has been creating the “wow” factor for the garage floors of hundreds of clients since that time. As a locally owned and operated business, they are the most trusted floor coating company, serving Nashville, TN; Chattanooga, TN; Atlanta, GA; Phoenix and Tucson, AZ; Dallas, TX; Raleigh, NC; Tampa and Orlando, FL.

Their team found the perfect alternative to epoxy, garage floor mats, garage tiles, rubber garage flooring, DIY floor coating kits, and paints. The Guardian Garage Floors coating is highly durable, long-lasting, and attractive. It is also an affordable alternative to epoxy coatings. Guardian Garage Floors’ professionally-trained technicians transform a dated garage into a showplace worthy of your car, truck, boat, or SUV in a single day. That means you can use your space by the following day.

“We have a quick return to service for our clients,” said Stephen. 

Installers complete every job using specialized diamond grinders and dust-minimizing industrial vacuum systems. They thoroughly clean and inspect each site at the project’s conclusion to ensure compliance with Guardian Garage Floor’s strict quality assurance guidelines.

The “Guardian Garage Floors System” is the perfect alternative to epoxy garage floors and garage floor paint products. Unlike commercially available, out-of-the-box epoxy-based floor coverings, Guardian Garage Floors uses only the highest-quality materials. The flooring process involves a proprietary and polyaspartic material that is 20 times stronger and five times more resilient than epoxy with greater elasticity. This gives the material greater flexibility. 

Their floor covering product protects garage floors equally well from stains, spills, everyday wear and tear, and other unforeseen happenings. Unlike epoxy, theirs is a top blend of polyaspartic polyurea, the best concrete coatings you can use. 

The price of the flooring service is based on the condition of the concrete on each job. Technicians go out to the home, providing a free estimate and a no-obligation appointment for each customer. They explain all costs and show samples, including optional color flakes to add to the mixture. 

Based on the customer’s needs, they are provided with an individualized cost estimate for their particular garage floor. 

“It’s long-lasting. You put it down, and it looks beautiful. It’s easy to clean, and you want it to last that way as long as you own your home. We offer that and back it with a lifetime warranty. As long the homeowner is in the home, we will guarantee our product and workmanship. That way, that floor should look just as beautiful as it does when we put it down 20 years from now.”

As the business continued to grow, Jon and Stephen wanted to pay it forward to give back to the community that welcomed them. 

“We wanted to pick something veteran-centric, as both I, Jon, and our wives served in combat operations overseas. We wanted to pick an organization that helped families of fallen service members. As we were doing all the due diligence, Folds of Honor resonated with us. We got together with their team and decided there should be a long-term partnership.”

Initially founded in 2007 to provide scholarships for the children and spouses of fallen and disabled veterans, Folds of Honor has recently expanded its role to include the children of first responders who meet the same criteria. 

They can use the scholarships for private schooling for younger children. Folds of Honor also provides “Higher Education Scholarships” to both spouses and their dependents wanting to get a bachelor’s degree or attend a trade school if they don’t have a degree.

Folds of Honor receives a portion of Guardian Garage Floors’ proceeds quarterly. 

When asked for a favorite customer testimonial, Stephen said the best endorsement was referral business and seeing five-star reviews mentioning his installers by name. 

“It’s a testament to the quality of hires we bring on board, the training that we provide our team members, how we interact with the client. Then we’re getting phone calls from their friends, neighbors, and family members wanting Guardian to come out and give them an estimate for their flooring. That happens with every market that we are in,” he explained. “Our vision is to treat our customers with the best customer service that we know and continue to put down the best quality product on the market. We show up on time, and we’re professional. We want to ensure that we put down the top-quality product that we advertise and, if there are any other issues down the road, that we’re there. It’s a relationship; it’s not a one-and-done. We want to ensure our customers are cared for as long as they have our product on their floor.”
