Pricing

The average cost to install an epoxy flooring system on a 2 car to 2.5 car garage floor (up to 450 SF) with our Granite Floor System starts at around $2000 if the concrete is in good condition. The average cost to install an epoxy on a 3 car garage floor (up to 650 SF) with our Granite Floor System starts at around $2600 if the concrete is in good condition.

Costs are higher for floors that require extensive repair.


The Price of an Epoxy Floor will vary depending primarily on 4 factors
  1. Size of the floor
  2. Resin System
  3. Floor Design Type (Granite, Marble, Vivid Glass)
  4. Existing Floor Condition

1. Size of the Floor

Size Matters when determining the price of an epoxy floor. There is a direct correlation to the size of a floor and the costs associated with applying a coating to it. That is to say that the bigger the floor, the more it will cost to put a coating on it. However, there are economies of scale that are created when coating a larger floor versus a smaller one; this is what I like to refer to as the Costco concept.

Millions of Americans belong to one or more bulk grocery stores such as Costco or Sam’s Club. This is because it is cheaper in the long run to purchase in bulk. For example, buying toilet paper by the 72 roll package costs less per roll than it does to purchase it by the 12 pack. Even though it costs more to buy the 72 pack than the 12 pack it is less expensive per roll. This Costco concept prevails with Epoxy Floors as well. Larger floors typically cost less per square foot than do smaller floors.

2. Resin System

The term Epoxy is used to describe many different types of Resinous Flooring Systems. There are however many other types of resins used for flooring that can be applied depending on your particular circumstances. Garage Floors for example typically incorporate an epoxy base coat followed by a urethane clear coat in order to provide protection from UV rays from the sun.

The 3 resins we most commonly use are Epoxy, Aliphatic Urethane, and Polyaspartic. Each has its own advantages for different applications.

Type of Resin Return to Service Application Temp Impact Resistance Chemical Resistance UV Protection
Epoxy 12 Foot / 72 Drive 50°F to 90°F Superior Excellent Poor
Urethane 24 Foot / 72 Drive 50°F to 90°F Good Excellent Excellent
Polyaspartic 6 Foot / 24 Drive -20°F to 130°F Excellent Superior Superior
  • Epoxy has the best impact resistance and the thickest film build making it the best choice for interior industrial settings. It also provides a Superior foundation for flake and other aggregate broadcasts.
  • Aliphatic Urethane has Excellent Gloss and Color Retention and performs well against household chemicals and damaging UV rays from the sun.
  • Polyaspartic Coatings are the most versatile having the broadest range of application temperatures, excellent flexibility, and superior UV resistance. Polyaspartic coatings are what we primarily use for exterior applications but can be used inside as well.

3. Floor Type

We offer 3 unique floor system types including Granite, Marble Metallic, and Vivid Glass.

The KreteCoat Granite Floor System Incorporates Vinyl Polymer Flakes broadcasted into an epoxy basecoat in order to provide the appearance of Quartz, Granite, or Terrazzo depending on flake size. After it dries it is scraped smooth and finished with a protective clear coat to seal in and enhance the beauty as well providing added durability.

The KreteCoat Marble Metallic Floor System incorporates a metallic mica pigment added to a clear epoxy used as a basecoat, then a metallic accent coat is applied, and finally a protective clear coat finishes it all off.

The KreteCoat Vivid Glass Floor System employs the use of Self-Leveling 100% Solids Epoxy in order to achieve a super smooth “glass-like” appearance that is so shiny that you can see your reflection in it.

4. Existing Floor Condition

Costs are higher for floors that require extensive repair. We fill all cracks using an Epoxy or Polyaspartic patching compound. Cracks require added labor and materials which adds to the cost of the total job. Each floor is assessed on a case by case basis. This could result in charges starting at around $200.

    Absolutely top notch job by this company. Decided to finally get an epoxy floor and it’s been the best choice I could have possibly went with. I chose a grey base coat and some blue and grey flake. Turned out absolutely gorgeous. Thanks again guys!
