Epoxy Flooring Cost: What You Need to Know

epoxy flooring houstonEpoxy coating is a material made of two materials: resin and hardener. When these two separate materials are mixed together, it forms a substance that dries to a very hard plastic. Although this coating can be used on wood and metal, it is more popularly used on concrete .

Residential and commercial garage floors in Houston prefer this over other materials because it is a more economical option.

Cost of Epoxy Flooring

It is highly recommended to have a professional contractor install an epoxy coating. Proper installation ensures durability and longevity. The cost of this system ranges between $3 to $12 per square foot. It can go higher depending on many influential factors, such as:

  • Types
    There are two kinds of epoxy: solvent-based and water-based. Solvent-based is thicker and more durable while water-based types are thinner, thus easier to apply.
  • Number of Coats
    Typically, one coating is enough for an epoxy flooring. However, some may require more, depending on the assessment of the professional installer. If the owner requests for paint chips, quartz, or any decorative add-on, it may require additional coatings to seal them in.
  • Application Method
    There are many ways to apply this coating. The type of tool or equipment used can influence costs. However, the most recommended method is application via roller brush.
  • Size of Garage Flooring, Basement or other  concrete floors
    Wider garages will require more gallons of coating. Installers often charge per square foot which is why they measure the area prior to coming up with a quotation.
  • Customization Requests
    Epoxy is highly customizable. Aside from being available in a wide variety of colors, it can be made to look like terrazzo or granite with the addition of paint chips. Any design or image that owners would like to add to their garage flooring may incur additional charges as well.
