Business: Garage Experts
Oklahoma, not immune to disasters both natural and man-made, is becoming known as a state that endures hardships well. Communities become stronger as Oklahomans learn to overcome adversity. With these kind of attributes, it’s only fitting that Oklahoma would be ranked one of two states having the highest entrepreneurial activity in the U.S. despite the recession, according to a study done by the Kauffman Foundation. And two residents, Tim and Christie Roberts, have made their mark in Oklahoma’s entrepreneurial landscape with the opening of Garage Experts, an innovative floor coating and cabinetry system, that “changes the way you look at garages.”
With more than 15 years of experience in floor coating and sales, Roberts explained his choice for opening Garage Experts. “We wanted to be part of something that offered homeowners and businesses a quality product at an affordable price with a strong warranty. Garage Experts has over 20 years without floor failure. That’s why we can offer a lifetime warranty on this product and why to us, Garage Experts is the complete package.”
According to Garage Experts, they manufacture the only wicking epoxy on the market producing an oil, acid, slip and hot tire resistant floor coating that’s UV stable. “This product is so versatile it covers almost any existing floor covering. It’s more than a paint so you don’t have to worry about it peeling or flaking. Within two hours, it can be walked on and driven on by the next morning,” said Roberts.
There are more than 100 color combinations including custom colors or designs to choose from. “When we do industrial floor coating in restaurants or car dealerships, often we add their company logo. More homeowners are putting this in their homes, not just their garages, in lieu of concrete staining, because of its durability,” said Roberts. This multipurpose floor coating has also proven successful on pool decks, patios and sidewalks. Garage Experts also manufactures and installs custom garage cabinetry. “I’m excited to bring proprietary products to Oklahoma that offer lifetime warranties,” said Roberts.
Roberts isn’t the only one excited about what Garage Experts has to offer. Having done thousands of square feet since opening the Oklahoma franchise in November and counting every inch a success story, his proudest moments are still ahead. Roberts shared, “We’ve been chosen to do the St. Jude’s Dream Home this year. We’re also doing a garage floor for a 93-year-old World War II veteran homeowner from ‘In Your Corner with Scott Hines’ because we believe in giving back to the community.”
