How much does epoxy flooring cost?

Epoxy flooring costs can vary depending on several factors. Factors that can affect the price of epoxy flooring installation include the room’s size, type of epoxy, and complexity of the design. Typically, larger rooms will cost less per square foot than a smaller room. This is because there are usually fewer obstacles and transitions to make in a larger room. You can expect to pay roughly $3 to $7 per square foot for standard epoxy flooring installation in most cases. If you choose to have metallic epoxy flooring or decorative flake epoxy flooring installed, the price will be somewhat higher. On average, a metallic or decorative flake epoxy floor installation will cost between $8 and $12 per square foot.

How long does it take to install an epoxy floor?

Installation times for epoxy flooring can vary. The size of the room, design complexity, and room temperature can affect the installation time. Typically, it only takes about 1 to 2 days to install an epoxy floor. The first day is primarily utilized for cleaning, inspecting, and repairing the existing floor. The floor preparation is also typically accomplished on the first day. The second is set aside for the epoxy mixing and application in most cases. On average, the floor is in place and curing by the end of the second day.

What are the benefits of epoxy flooring?

Epoxy flooring offers many different benefits to home and business owners. Here are some of the various benefits of epoxy flooring:

  1. Durability: Epoxy flooring is highly durable and resilient. These floors are designed to handle even the harshest conditions, including hard impacts, scrapes, and high volumes of foot and vehicle traffic, without sustaining notable damage.
  2. Resistance: Epoxy flooring is installed seamlessly, meaning liquids, such as water and chemicals, can’t seep into the floor. They’re also non-porous, so they repel these substances to reduce damage and staining.
  3. Longevity: Epoxy flooring is built to last. These floors can last twice as long as conventional floors. When properly installed and maintained, epoxy flooring can last for 25 years or more.
  4. Customization: This concrete coating comes in endless colors, patterns, textures, and styles to customize your floor. No matter if it’s for your home or business, there are design options for you with epoxy flooring.
  5. Reduced Maintenance: These floors are quick and easy to maintain! They don’t require any expensive cleaners, time-consuming routines, or labor-intensive scrubbing to keep them clean.

Is epoxy flooring slippery?

No, epoxy flooring isn’t overly slippery. These floors are no more slippery than a traditional concrete floor. However, like most floors, they can become somewhat slippery in wet conditions. If you expect your floor to be frequently exposed to wet conditions or if slip-resistance is an issue for your home or business, there are many skid-resistant additives that we can include in your epoxy floor!

How do you maintain an epoxy floor?

One of the benefits epoxy floors provide is easy maintenance. All you need to maintain your new epoxy floor is a quality broom or dust mop, wet mop, mop bucket, and a pH-neutral floor cleaner. Dust mops are usually preferred, depending on the floor’s size, as they’re faster and more efficient than a standard broom. Avoid using detergent-based cleaners or citrus-based cleaners as they can leave a film over the floor. Simply sweep or dust mop your floor daily, wet mop with the pH-neutral floor cleaner weekly, and spot mop as needed to keep your floor maintained. With this fast and straightforward maintenance routine, your epoxy floor will last for years to come!

How do you install an epoxy floor?

Installing an epoxy floor is a process that’s always best left to the professionals. We do not recommend DIY epoxy flooring projects as this process requires experience, specialized tools, and professional training. We begin the epoxy flooring installation process by cleaning and inspecting your floor for damage. Any discovered damage will be repaired before we move forward. Next, the floor is prepped using a floor grinder to grind down the surface to remove minor blemishes, level the floor, and ensure proper adhesion. Once the floor is prepped, we’ll apply the base epoxy layer, mix the epoxy resin, and apply your floor. Any patterns are created during this step. Finally, the clear epoxy topcoat is installed to seal the floor, and it’ll need 72 hours to fully cure.

What are the different types of epoxy?

We offer several types of epoxy to choose from. Below, you can see the types and their details:

  1. Standard Epoxy Flooring: This is the most affordable and common epoxy flooring type. These floors are available in many different colors, patterns, and textures to fit your unique style and needs.
    Metallic Epoxy Flooring: Made by mixing metallic pigments into the epoxy resin, metallic epoxy flooring produces one-of-a-kind designs that can enhance any space! From vibrant, swirling patterns to designs that mimic nature, such as boiling lava, shimmering water, and cloud-dotted skies.
    Decorative Flake Epoxy Flooring: This epoxy flooring type is created by layering acrylic flakes over the epoxy base and finishing it with a thin, clear epoxy topcoat. The decorative chips are available in many colors, shapes, and sizes, from 1/16 to 1 inch.

What is epoxy flooring?

Epoxy flooring is a resinous floor coating designed for application over concrete. It can be installed over other structurally-sound flooring materials, though. These coatings are made by mixing the epoxy resin with a chemical hardener that turns the liquid mixture into a hard, durable floor as it cures. Epoxy flooring is currently available in a myriad of colors, patterns, and textures for complete customization. Originally adopted for aerospace technologies, epoxy can now be found in homes and businesses all across America!


Why is epoxy flooring better than traditional concrete?

Epoxy flooring has many advantages over standard concrete flooring. Concrete is a porous material that will absorb various liquids unless properly sealed regularly. Epoxy flooring is non-porous and will repel these substances without the need for a sealer. Not to mention, the compressive strength of epoxy flooring is 10,000 PSI, which is about three times stronger than concrete. Its tensile strength comes in at 3,500 PSI, which is approximately 10 times stronger than concrete! These flooring systems are also much more customizable than concrete. Concrete is limited to concrete stains and stencils to create colorful patterns. Epoxy has a near-limitless selection of colors, patterns, and textures. Concrete can be difficult to maintain, especially considering dusting from efflorescence. Epoxy flooring is quick and easy to maintain, requiring minimal time, effort, and money. For all these reasons, epoxy flooring is more beneficial than traditional concrete.
