Ideally, the answer on the cost of epoxy floors would be straightforward, but the sad truth is that it isn’t. It’s very rare that two floors are ever alike and with differences, there are problems that need to be solved. The extent of the problems determine how much labor time, diamond blades for grinding, crack filler, expansion joints, cove base and resinous epoxy material will need to be used. There are also different types of epoxy floors and chemical mixtures that are better for specific surfaces which is all dependent on what the floor is being used for and the condition of the existing concrete slab. Besides the personalization, other factors also contribute to how much you’ll pay for an epoxy floor in your home or commercial space.
When you need to fix up your outdated flooring or seal the concrete surface, epoxy floor coating is a great way of transforming any space while also fortifying and protecting it from harsh impacts. This kind of finish can be surprisingly useful in preserving your concrete surfaces as well — all with its glossy appearance. Prices can vary greatly amongst contractors. Generally speaking, you can expect that an epoxy floor will cost anywhere from $3 to $9 a square ft depending on the type of system needed.

- Are there scratches, pitting or moisture issues with the floor?
- Does the floor need a special drainage pitch?
- Does the floor need to handle heavy impact or heavy machinery?
- Will there be extensive foot traffic?
- Is there a small window to complete the job?
- Does there need to be a non slip additive in the floor?
- Are there requirements for the floor system related to food safety standards?
Concrete Preparation and Repair Costs
Any flooring expert will tell you concrete prepping for epoxy flooring is what makes the floor a success or failure. Almost 80% of the effort and resources go into concrete surface preparation. How well you do the repairs and prepare determines how many epoxy layers you can apply.
At JDL Surface Innovations, we evaluate the condition of an existing concrete slab first (whether new or old) to determine the level of floor repair and preparation necessary. The reason proper floor preparation is necessary is because when the slab is not prepped appropriately, the epoxy system will not adhere and bond to the concrete. Epoxy only fully bonds to a slab that is opened up through diamond grinding and is porous, so this step is critical.
