The cost of a new epoxy floor will depend on several factors, such as:
- The size of the area/project
- Geographical location
- Quality of the sub base
- Choice of sealer coats
- Whether the floor requires some build up
- The type of epoxy
- The design finish
- Cost of install
Epoxy Floor Cost Factors Explained:
What is the size of the area?
Just like any flooring project, larger areas require more attention, time, material and labour. Although certain aspects of your installation will be fixed on price, the size of the room you want to cover will dictate if you will be paying below or above the average square metre rate.
Creative Epoxy are based in Leicestershire, and cover areas up to an hours journey away.
Quality of the sub base
Epoxy is a versatile product and can go over many different sub-bases. However if your sub base is full of holes, cracks or breaking up, a certain amount of preparation work will be required before a suitable epoxy product can be applied.
One of the lesser desirable properties on an epoxy, is that they have a tendency to yellow in direct sunlight. This can be overcome by applying an aliphatic (UV stable) polyurethane coat over the surface, which will add to the cost.
Whether the floor requires some build up
Epoxy as a coating is thin, and in some circumstances, you may need to build up the levels of the floor. If this is a case of millimetres, this can be done by adding a filler product to the epoxy (commonly called a scratch coat) and applied as a self-leveller. If you need more than this, then we would recommend installing a fast setting hydraulic self-levelling screed before applying the epoxy coat.
There are many different designs that can be achieved with an epoxy, from a single colour, to a wide variety of bespoke designs.
