While concrete floors are great, they need protection to last longer than a few years, particularly under heavy foot traffic and warehouse applications. Understanding what factors affect the cost of floor coatings for commercial properties is important.
At ACT Restoration, we handle many types of floor coatings and have put together this guide to floor coating costs. We want you to be well informed on the subject so you can make the right decision for your company’s flooring needs.
Types of Floor Coatings
There are a few different types of floor coatings that can be applied to upgrade a concrete floor. Each one has different advantages and uses. They all work great in industrial and commercial buildings. The three types we recommend include epoxy, polyurea, and polyaspartic.
Epoxy Floor Coating
Epoxy flooring consists of epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener. When they’re mixed together, they create a rigid, plastic-like material. Epoxy floors are durable, versatile, low maintenance, and customizable.
Epoxy coatings work great for floors in warehouses, manufacturing plants, and garages or bay areas.
Polyurea Floor Coating
Polyurea is a type of elastomeric polymer derived from the reaction between an isocyanate component and a resin blend component. This creates a fast-curing, flexible material.
Polyurea is great for quick curing time, flexibility, and chemical resistance. It also has UV stability, which means it is resistant to yellowing and maintains its color.
Similar to epoxy, polyurea floor coating works well in industrial and commercial buildings.
Polyaspartic Floor Coating
Polyaspartic floor coating is a type of polyurea that has high flexibility and rapid cure times. It also cures fast, is durable, has UV stability, and has a high-gloss finish. It works well for warehouses and manufacturing because of the quick cure time.
Polyaspartic floor coating offers a high-gloss finish that makes it desirable for retail spaces and showrooms.
Floor Coating Cost Factors
Making the decision to add a floor coating to your existing commercial floors is always a great idea, but you first need to know what factors into the cost. A few different items go into a floor restoration company’s cost for floor coatings.
- Size of the room or area
- The moisture under the concrete slab
- The current condition of the concrete floor
- The presence of existing floor coating that needs to be removed
- Desired durability and longevity
