Estimating Epoxy Cost
Everyone is making their best effort to save a buck here and there. However, most people are all too familiar with choosing the “cheaper” option and then being disappointed when they get a “cheaper” product or service. This mistake is made time and time again, and more often than not, it ends up coming back to haunt you with expenses you hadn’t planned for at the original time of purchase. That being said, it is much more cost effective to spend the extra buck on a higher quality product or service so that it can withstand the test of time and use without coming back to haunt you. This is especially true when you are choosing a flooring system. It’s much better to choose a system that will last you for many, many years to come while maintaining a clean, sleek look and providing durability for whatever work or leisure that may take place on your new floors. You may be wondering though, how many “extra bucks” will I have to spend for these floors? Well here’s how to estimate that answer.
As far as materials and labor go, it may be as little as a couple of dollars per square foot of installation, but a lot of factors pour into determining the total cost of your flooring project. For instance, the flooring you have now will be a big determinant in your project’s expensiveness. If the current floor requires a lot of repair from damage, corrosion, cracking, etc. that will make the price go up. It helps if your contractor has a concrete resurfacer to help smoot out and fix the current concrete. If your concrete is in pretty good, great, or perfect condition, then your price tag shouldn’t go up too much for repairs.
Where is your epoxy going? This is another consideration to take into account when determining the price of your new floors. There are many customization options within the realm of epoxy floors. For instance, colors, finishes, antimicrobial coatings, non-slip coatings are a few of the many things you can do to personalize your epoxy for your floor’s needs. If you’re trying to save a little cash, picking one, standard, color is probably your best option. Surprisingly, often times the larger your space is, the lower the price is per square foot. So, to get the most bang for your buck, it might help to resurface an entire room instead of just a portion of it, if that’s what you had in mind.
Lastly, incorporating the cost of labor simply varies based on the size of the project, how long it will take, how complex it is, and of course, your contractor’s personal opinion and pricing. However, it is best to ensure that your floors get a lot of tender, loving care from a Wayne PA contractor who knows epoxy flooring like the back of their own hand. Epoxy flooring is by far the biggest bang for your buck simply due to its life expectancy, durability, customizable features, and resistance to damage. Choose your best option, and choose epoxy flooring your floors today.

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!

Covering our old, gray garage floor was a great aesthetic and functional improvement. This project requires 2 days: first day preparing the surface (major job requiring right equipment), putting down first coating and sprinkling the flakes. This requires about 4 hours. After this dries, they come back next day and apply the topcoat. They notified us when they would start the work and arrived as promised. They worked diligently, completed the work efficiently, left the work areas and our driveway clean. The owner Steve is a great guy to deal with.

It was a pleasure dealing with the company’s owner Steve Chaloult. When we called him to give us an estimate, he arranged to come within a few days. We have a very large two car garage. His estimate was a bit more than the first company we called but he seemed very well prepared in showing us samples and very knowledgeable about his product and we just liked him. For personal reasons , we had to delay installation for about a month and he could not be more accommodating. we finally we able to have it done this past week and it was worth the wait. The garage floor is just beautiful and I never would have thought I would say that about a garage floor! We also had the lower walls around the floor done and very glad we did. At one time we were thinking we could do this ourselves using a kit. WHAT were we thinking? This is a job for a professional and we are so glad we used Steve.

The owner Steve Chaloult was easy to work with and he’s very good at what he does. I highly recommend Floorguard as your contractor if you’re wanting to have a garage floor finished with a durable epoxy like colored finish. Floorguard came when they said they would and cleaned up after they were finished. Floorguard also installs garage storage cabinets.
