As the founder of a concrete coating company serving Waukesha since 2018, one of the most common questions we receive is, “How much does it cost to get a concrete floor?”.

To be clear – this question is entirely dependent upon how much floor you want!

For example, our services for porch coatings means that for a porch, there’s less square feet of space to put down.

Where-as for our commercial coating, where we can coat entire factory floors, that might be 20x the space and therefore more expensive.

In this article, I’ll try to break down the costs associated with getting concrete coating for your space – whether you want a new garage floor, basement, or something else entirely.

The 3 Factors Most Important for Our Cost Breakdown

1- Size of the Floor You Want to Coat With Concrete

The most significant factor in determining the cost is the size of the area to be coated.

Our concrete coating is typically priced per square foot, and the larger the area, the higher the total cost.

The exception to this might be large projects, where we offer substantial discounts depending upon the project.

But for the average customer, size alone will be the most important factor.

2- Condition of the Existing Concrete

We’ve had a few projects where customers call us asking to repair concrete which hasn’t been touched since the 1940’s.

Naturally, the existing condition of the concrete surface plays a crucial role in the overall cost. Floors that require extensive preparation, such as repair, leveling, or grinding, will increase the project cost.

Excel Concrete Coatings carefully assesses the condition of each floor to provide an accurate estimate. This isn’t an issue for 95% of the homes and businesses we service.

3- Type of Concrete Coating Used

There are various types of concrete coatings available, including epoxy, polyurethane, and acrylic.

Custom designs, colors, and patterns can significantly affect the price.

Different Opaxy Concrete Variations

Simple, single-color applications will be more affordable than intricate multi-colored designs or the addition of decorative chips or quartz.

Each type has different costs associated with it, influenced by the material’s durability, aesthetic qualities, and installation requirements.

The good news is that you can choose from our many epoxy flake options for your garage, basement, or coating area you’d like.

Average Cost Estimates

Based on their extensive experience in the industry, Excel Concrete Coatings provides the following general cost estimates for concrete coating:

  • Basic Coating Applications: Starting from $5 to $7 per square foot for standard single-color epoxy coatings.
  • Mid-Range Designs: Typically range from $7 to $12 per square foot, including color flakes and moderate design patterns.
  • High-End Customization: Can cost $12 per square foot and up, especially for high-grade finishes like metallic or quartz-infused coatings.

Is Concrete Coating Really Worth the Price?

While the initial cost of concrete coating can be a significant investment, the long-term benefits justify the expense.

Coated floors are more resistant to wear, chemicals, and moisture, which can save money on maintenance and repairs over the years. Maintaining it through Wisconsin winters is a must.

This is especially important for garages since they have the most wear-and-tear than any other place in your home.

Additionally, a well-coated concrete floor can enhance the aesthetic appeal and increase the value of a property. Many of our customers decide to coat their garage or basement before selling their home, and as a result it sells for more money.
