How long will these cabinets last?
Gorgeous Garage cabinets are built to last for decades. We back this up by offering a lifetime warranty on the Signature Line and 7 years on the Classic Series.
What are the garage cabinets made of?
We use a thermal-fused laminate for our cabinets, and everything is held together with sturdy wooden dowels and screws. Cabinets come in a variety of colors, designs or wood patterns. This melamine material won’t warp over time, and are resistant to moisture.
Why are the garage cabinets mounted up off the floor?
The garage cabinets are wall mounted to protect them from water damage. It also makes maintenance and cleaning your garage easier.
Do you provide custom sizes or dimensions for cabinetry?
We offer a wide range of cabinet sizes and configurations to fit your needs and work best in your garage.
What types of overhead racks are there?
We carry a motorizing option and a stationary option that can be installed in a couple of ways.
How much weight do the overhead racks hold?
Standard racks can hold 750 lbs when free-standing and 1,000 lbs when one side is mounted to a wall. Motorized racks can hold 350 lbs.
What items are best stored on overhead racks?
Long-term items and items used less frequently, like bulky equipment or storage bins, are best stored on overhead racks.
What are the differences between motorized overhead racks and normal racks?
There are a couple of differences between the two types of racks. Stationary racks hold more weight, but you usually need a ladder to get to them. Motorized racks move up and down for easier access.
How do the motorized overhead racks work?
The rack itself is attached to a pulley system and four independant motors, which raise and lower the rack. The system is controlled by a phone app.
What are the overhead storage racks made out of?
These overhead racks are made with a sturdy, strong steel frame.
Do you offer a warranty on flooring?
We offer a lifetime warranty on our flooring.
How long does a floor installation take?
We offer one and two day coating systems. Tiles can be installed in just a few hours.
Does everything have to be out of the garage during the floor installation?
Yes, we need the interior cleared prior to installation.
What is the difference between polyurea coatings and epoxy coatings?
We offer a special epoxy coating that is specifically formulated to be highly durable and protect the concrete floor. It is effective at it’s job, although all epoxy flooring will inevitably fade and yellow if exposed to direct sunlight. Heat can also cause it to become slightly sticky. Polyurea is more stable and will last much longer than epoxy. Polyurea coatings are resistant to damage, like the epoxy, but also withstand chemicals and UV rays. They don’t fade or yellow and are impervious to most liquids.
When can I start using my new floor?
You can start using your new floor after 1-2 days. If you choose Polyurea for your garage floor coating, you will be able to use your garage floor the very next day due to the fast-drying qualities associated with this type of flooring.
Is the floor covering slippery?
Swisstrax floor tiles are made with a combination of rubber and plastic, so they are not slippery when wet. Floor coatings are resistant to moisture, so they can get slick when wet. We added a layer of chips to the coatings to provide more texture, which helps with that. If this is a specific concern, however, we can also add a special anti-slip product to the topcoat for an extra charge.
How do I clean my new floor?
Our coatings are resistant to liquids, so water, oil and most chemicals can be easily wiped away when spilt. Dirt and debris can be swept up with a bristle broom, mop or light pressure wash.
Are the resins used harmful to me or the environment?
No. Unlike cheaper kits, our products have a high solids content, which means fewer solvents and less VOC’s emitted that evaporate into the air.
Does the floor scratch?
No. All of our flooring systems are highly resistant to damage.
Does the flooring leave a smell?

Do I move my stuff out of the garage? Or do you move it out for me?
I recommend the garage be cleared out upon our arrival for liability reasons. If you need help with large items our crew will do it free of charge. If you need a lot of things moved I recommend a moving company as I don’t want to tie our crew up when we can be installing.
Does it matter if I get flooring or storage first?
No. If you decide to do one project separate from the other, the order doesn’t matter.
