Epoxy Flooring Cost Per Square Foot

Epoxy flooring costs between $4 to $9 per square ft, with installation. The bulk of the expense will come down to labor. However, there are a few things as a homeowner that you can do to reduce these costs and that comes down to floor prep. To save money, simply purchase a concrete floor solution that is designed for concrete to help remove: Grease, dirt, and anything that could be stuck to the surface would need to be removed. This should help save you $1 – $2 per square foot in savings.

Other factors that will increase the cost is the type of epoxy being used: Solid epoxy or a water based epoxy. Solid epoxy normally runs on the premium side of 2-3x more expensive than that of a water based material.

What’s the average cost to Epoxy garage floors?

A standard 2-car garage dimensions are 24′ x 24′. Taking these numbers would give us 576 square feet and would roughly cost between $2,500 – $5,500. Also take into consideration that these numbers can go up and down depending on surface conditions. If you have a lot of cracks or chips in your flooring, they would need to be filled. Any kind of contaminants like grease stains, etc. would need to be removed.


Epoxy Flooring – Pricing and Installation Cost Checklist

  • Get at least 3-5 estimates before hiring a Epoxy Flooring contractor — estimates are typically free, unless it’s a service call for a repair.
  • Expect the Epoxy Flooring prices to fluctuate between various companies – each and every company have different operation expenses and over-head.
  • Try to get prices in late Fall, early winter – you should expect aggressive pricing discounts by waiting for a contractor’s down season.
  • Try to budget and additional 7-15% more on top of what our calculator gives out – I.e; difficult configurations, patterns, etc. The additional complexity of your Walls and sub-flooring, trim work will add to the Epoxy Flooring costs.
  • Visit every supply house that sell your particular brand of Epoxy Flooring and try to negotiate a better price with each supplier – I save on average 20%.
  • Remember, there are multiple styled homes in the U.S – from: Contemporary, colonial, cape-cod style, ranch, bungalow, victorian, etc. So keep that in mind and try to budget a little more, before starting your Epoxy Flooring project.
