Epoxy Flooring Cost

Because of its sealing properties, epoxy provides a layer of protection for the concrete underneath. Epoxy adheres to the surface of the concrete, making the floor more durable. This prevents the concrete from cracking and prolongs its life. Epoxy, when properly applied to the surface of a concrete floor, dramatically enhances the floor’s surface strength and capacity to support greater weight than bare concrete floors. 

Epoxy flooring cost depends on several things. Pricing may vary based on project size, labour expenses, application techniques, materials, equipment, epoxy type, and preparatory processes.

What Can I Expect to Pay for Epoxy Concrete Flooring?

Epoxy flake floors are typically calculated per square meter for two layers applied to a properly prepared concrete subfloor. Diamond grinding to prepare the concrete and a decorative finish will increase the price.

Are Epoxy Floors Expensive?

Pricing might change based on the kind of epoxy you choose for your garage floor. There are three distinct varieties of epoxy:

Water-Based –Most Affordable

A water-based epoxy floor is the most cost-effective option. It is composed of epoxy, hardener, and water. This kind of epoxy has few volatile organic compounds (VOCs), is thin, robust, glossy, and is easy to apply (volatile organic compounds). Water-based epoxy must be reapplied every 1 to 3 years since it scratches easily and degrades when exposed to chemicals.

Solvent-Based - Midrange Pricing

Solvent-based epoxy is more durable than water-based epoxy, can survive greater humidity and lower temperatures, and is more resistant to petroleum-based items. Because solvent-based epoxy is flammable and combustible, it must be used with safety equipment such as a respirator.

Solid Epoxy – Most Expensive

When it comes to flooring epoxy, solid epoxy is the most costly but the most lasting and dependable alternative. This epoxy is about twice as thick as a solvent- or water-based epoxy. It’s better for garage floors since it doesn’t emit volatile organic compounds and is also heat, chemical, and scratch-resistant. Epoxy is so strong that it may last up to 20 years without deterioration.

In addition, the price of your epoxy flooring will be determined by the following factors:

  • The condition of the existing concrete.
  • What kind of style and finish do you want?
  • The dimensions of the area.

Why Do Some Epoxy Floors Cost More Than Others?

Depending on the situation, epoxy flooring may incur additional expenditures such as painting and sealing concrete, storing your belongings, repairing and resurfacing concrete, and resurfacing and traffic coating.

The cost may increase due to the time and effort required to seal concrete with urethane or high-performance epoxy coatings. Acrylic resin or penetrating silicone may seal a concrete floor at a lower cost.

Resurfacing Concrete

Before applying epoxy floor coating to your garage floor, any chips, cracks, or crumbling concrete must be fixed. If the flooring has cracks, it may be necessary to replace the foundation. It’s not uncommon for the price tag for repairing a foundation to be rather hefty.

Heavy-Duty Coating

Investing in a commercial-grade epoxy coating may be worthwhile if you use your garage to keep big vehicles such as recreational vehicles, tractors, or dual-axle trucks and trailers. While initially more costly, high-quality sealant will be an excellent long-term investment.

You may need to put your items in storage until the area is cleared, and renting a storage unit can add to your project cost.

Why Choose Epoxy Flooring?

Epoxy is an effective sealant and protector for concrete floors. The best part is that it may be used over either new or old concrete, provided the surface is properly prepared. Professionals frequently grind the surface to prepare old concrete for epoxy flooring installation. The epoxy resin may be mixed with other materials (dyes) to achieve the desired effect.

Where Can I Install Epoxy Concrete Flooring?

Because of its exceptional versatility, designers have started incorporating epoxy floors into their residential, commercial, and industrial projects. Epoxy floors can be used in garages and kitchens, patios, driveways, pathways, outdoor parking, factories, medical facilities, laboratories, and al fresco dining areas. 

A layer of paint or sealer may give it different colours, stains, and textures to complement an existing design of an area.

Types of Epoxy Floors We Offer

Epoxy flooring is a synthetic resin floor system often used to maintain and improve the look of concrete floors. An epoxy coating can make even the most worn floor seem new. Epoxy comes in various colours and patterns, making it adaptable to any interior design scheme. Furthermore, it has the potential to hide minor floor issues like cracks or imperfections in the concrete. Ultra Grind offers the best epoxy flooring options for your garages and outdoor areas.

Garage Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring can endure large weights, heavy machinery, and intense foot activity in a commercial kitchen. Since epoxy flooring can withstand some moisture and spills, it's an excellent choice for use in garages.

Outdoor Epoxy Flooring

Due to its exceptional strength and durability, epoxy is an excellent choice for protecting outdoor concrete surfaces like driveways, garden walkways, pathways, and outdoor parking lots.

Epoxy Floor Installation

Epoxy floor installation takes time, patience, and careful attention to detail to apply epoxy correctly to the concrete surface. If you want your epoxy installed correctly, it's best to choose a professional that has experience working with concrete floors. An expert can use higher-quality materials and apply the coating correctly to extend the life of the finished product. If you don't have the skills or training to instal epoxy flooring properly, it's probably best to hire a specialist.
