Floor Coating Price
Floor coatings in Colorado tend to range between $5.50 per square foot and $9 per square foot. You can find companies cheaper than that but just be careful. You are investing a lot of money on this floor so it’s important to do it right the first time, so it lasts.
There are several considerations that come into place when pricing out a floor coating system.
How big is your garage? We need to know the square footage so we can determine how much time it will take and how much product we need to purchase for the job. We price our floors out at $5.50 per square foot. That will cover the cost of having our certified installers do the floor, purchase the top-of-the-line product and equipment to do the job the best possible way. It also allows us to provide you with a 5-star experience. Typically, if there is a problem with the floor it will manifest within days. Within the 1st year if you have a concern about your floor based on our job agreement then we will fix it at no cost to you. If there is a delamination from the concrete and it’s not a concrete issue the material cost will be covered. Don’t worry we won’t disappear if you call us back after the job is completed like some of the cheap guys.
What kind of condition is the concrete in? If the concrete has cracks, chips, is eroding or spalling then it is going to cost a little more to repair that stuff. We want the floor to look flawless when we are done so if the floor is cracked, we will need to cut the cracks, fill them with a mender and regrind the surface. If the surface needs help, then we will grind it first, clean it up and skim coat the damaged areas then regrind everything so you would never know any of the damage existed. It’s like magic, but it’s not free. The cost will vary depending on the amount of repair work needed. It can be as low as $75 to cut and repair cracks. Skim coating starts at around $250 and goes up from there, it just depends on how much of the floor needs to be done. Most of the time it’s where you park your car. In the winter salts and magnesium chloride drip off the car and eat away at the concrete.
Side Wall Verticals in Garages:
If you want to have the side wall verticals coated or stem walls, we can do that. We charge a little more per square foot because they are tedious and take longer to coat. The price per sqft on these is $5.50.
We can coat your concrete steps or wood steps. We charge $60 per wood step that is under 3 ft in length and $50 for concrete steps. For wood steps, we need to sand them so the coating will stick and to take down any rough spots. The coating will last much longer than paint, but the limited lifetime warranty does not apply to wood steps because they are wood, and they won’t last as long as concrete.
Expansion Joints in Garages :
If we just coat in and out of the expansion joints, there is no extra cost. If you have a urethane or caulk in the expansion joints, you have a couple of options. We can remove it and charge you or you can do it and we won’t, pretty simple. If there are cracks in the expansion joints, we can fill the crack with a caulk that will bond to our coating, then coat in and out of the joint. This process adds a little extra cost. Typically, a 2-car garage will cost around $120, a 3-car garage around $170, but it really depends on how many and how deep the expansion joints are. Caulking the joints will hide the existing cracks, lower the depth of the joint so they don’t become dirt traps that are hard to clean. It also makes the floor look better. If the floor shifts enough the cracks in the expansion joints may reemerge, and that cannot be controlled so there is no warranty for that.
Floor to Wall Cove in a Garage:
A cove can be created for a seamless transition from the floor to the wall. We use caulk and a cove tool to create a rounded edge. This edge will cover the felt pad between the wall and the floor. If the floor shifts, you could see some cracking or separation at the cove. This would add around $250 to a 2-car garage and more for a larger project. We can give you a hard number once we see the floor.
Coves that crack do not fall under our warranty since we cannot control or stop concrete from shifting.
Removing an Existing Coating:
It depends on the coating. If it’s a DIY kit from somewhere or a glorified paint, then we charge a base price of $400 to remove it because it if it off with ease. If you have an existing epoxy coating or polyaspartic coating, then we do charge an extra $1.50 per sqft to remove the coating. It takes 2 to 3 times longer to strip and prep the surface. If you layed a high-end coating yourself and it didn’t set up correctly, it may cost more than $1.50 per sqft to remove.
For indoor floors, if you have carpet or just the glue left behind it is $2.50 per sqft to remove the glue.
