How much does an epoxy floor cost?

Are you planning a renovation project and asking yourself the crucial question: how much would it cost to epoxy coat your garage floor?

Let us guide you through the various options, benefits and associated costs.

At Prostationnement, Canada’s siding solutions experts, we’ll show you the factors that influence cost and provide you with an estimate.

What is epoxy flooring?

Before getting into the details of costs, it’s essential to understand what epoxy coating is. It’s a resin mixed with a hardener which, once applied, forms a solid, resistant and smooth surface.

It is commonly used in garages, warehouses, workshops and even some residences for its resistance to chemicals, impact and water.

The different forms of epoxy

  • Clear epoxy: Perfect for bringing out the raw beauty of concrete. However, it does have its drawbacks. It can be slippery when wet, and costs between $3 and $8 per square foot.

  • 100% solid epoxy: This type of epoxy is highly durable and is often recommended for high-traffic areas.

  • Metallic epoxy: Offering a modern aesthetic appearance, its distinctive design can cost a little more. It’s an excellent choice for those who want to further personalize their space.

Price estimate for epoxy flooring

In Quebec, the average cost of epoxy flooring is between $3 and $12 per square foot. This variation depends mainly on the type of epoxy chosen and the complexity of the installation.

For a standard 500 sq. ft. garage, this would mean a total cost of between $1,500 and $6,000.

Factors influencing the price of Epoxy

Several factors can influence the total cost of your epoxy floor:
  • Surface area: Naturally, the larger the surface area, the higher the cost.
  • Floor preparation: If your current floor has irregularities, cracks or other problems, it will need to be prepared, which can increase the cost.
  • The type of epoxy chosen: There are different types of epoxy, each with its own advantages, disadvantages and cost.
  • Customized finishes: If you require specific patterns or colors, the price may also vary.

Additional costs

Surface preparation is crucial. If your current floor is damaged, the cost of repair can influence the overall price of your project.

The choice of color

Did you know that color can also influence cost? Colored plasters can be slightly more expensive than transparent ones.

But don’t forget, color can play a crucial role in the aesthetics of your garage.


One of the main advantages of these coatings is their low maintenance.

Regular cleaning with mild soap and hot water is generally sufficient. Avoid abrasive products, which can damage the finish.

Epoxy vs Polyurea

What are the main differences between Epoxy and Polyurea?

While epoxy is famous for its value for money, polyurea is recognized for its superior durability.

It is flexible, resistant to cracking, and more tolerant of temperature variations. The initial cost may be higher, but the long-term benefits can offset this difference.
