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.
