Epoxy flooring is a durable, long-lasting flooring solution that has made its way into homes and businesses all across the country. These flooring systems come in many different colors, patterns, textures, and styles to suit any design needs.
But you may be wondering how much it costs to have a concrete coating like this installed. That’s what we’re here to address in this article! Continue reading our 2021 epoxy flooring price guide to understand the prices of epoxy floors and how these prices are determined!
Several different factors go into determining the cost of an epoxy floor coating. Everything from the floor’s size to the style will change the final cost for the installation. Below, you can see these factors and how they affect the price:
The size of the room or building you’re having your epoxy floor installed will have a significant effect on the price. Not only does floor size affect the final price, but it also can alter the cost per square foot. In most cases, the larger your floor is, the lower the cost per square foot will be. The reason behind this is because, with a smaller room, there are typically more obstacles and transitions to work around. The epoxy flooring can be applied more efficiently and quickly with larger spaces, making the price go down.
Epoxy Flooring Style
Epoxy floors are not limited to simple, solid-color styles, such as standard epoxy flooring. There are also styles like metallic epoxy flooring, decorative flake epoxy flooring, 3D epoxy flooring, and even specialty epoxy flooring that can include various objects like pennies or bottlecaps inlaid within the resin. The epoxy floor style you choose will play a significant role in determining how much the entire project will cost. Standard epoxy flooring will be the most affordable, while metallic, decorative flake, and other epoxy floors will increase that price.
Even the patterns and colors you choose will play some role in the price you’ll pay for installing an epoxy floor coating. This is one of the more straightforward price factors for an epoxy floor. The more complex your floor’s design is, the more you’ll need to pay for installation. Solid color designs or even some two-color designs are typically on the lower end of the cost spectrum. However, when you begin to incorporate more colors and more complex decorative elements, such as floral patterns, the price will creep up.
As with most building projects, epoxy flooring does have some extras and additives that can be included in the floor for an additional price. Some of these extras include non-skid additives, which will increase the traction on your epoxy floor, and logos, which can be anything from company logos, team logos, and even family names. Adding these extras will usually only minorly increase your floor’s cost, depending on the size and scope of the additives you’re including.
Now that you understand what can affect your floor’s price, let’s examine the price range you can expect based on the type of epoxy floor you’re installing. A standard epoxy floor will cost between $3 and $7 per square foot on average in most cases. If you want a metallic epoxy floor or decorative flake epoxy floor, the price is going to run between $8 and $12 per square foot. Determining the cost of an epoxy floor gets trickier when you’re working with specialty epoxy floors. These floors can vary drastically depending on the material you’re choosing to have inlaid, such as pennies, vinyl, or even bottle caps. The best way to calculate this price is to build off the standard epoxy flooring price because only clear epoxy should be used to seal the materials in place. For example, if you’re having a penny epoxy floor installed, it will typically cost $3 per square foot for just the pennies. Therefore, the penny epoxy floor should cost roughly $6 to $10 per square foot.
With these factors and price ranges in mind, you should know what to expect when you plan your next epoxy flooring project. Just remember to keep floor size, epoxy flooring styles, design complexity, and any extras in mind when you’re calculating your budget!
