If you’ve been looking to update your garage floor, chances are that you’ve checked out epoxy flooring. It looks great, protects your floor, and has a variety of design options. But overall, is it worth the investment for you? Read on as we discuss whether it is or not.

What is Epoxy Flooring? 

Epoxy flooring is a resin poured over concrete floors in order to make them more aesthetically pleasing and more durable to the wear and tear that naturally occurs in garages. During installation, multiple layers of epoxy are applied to a predetermined depth with your contractor. This can be done as a coating or as another layer of flooring – the difference lies in the actual thickness of the epoxy.

Is It Worth It For Your Garage?

In order to determine if something is worth it or not, you have to understand first the cost of an epoxy floor. This, of course, varies based on the square footage of the area, as well as the contractor you hire to do the work. Estimates in the U.S. for this are typically between $1 per square foot and $11 per square foot. Though this is certainly a large range, again, it depends on the area of the country and the quality of work the contractor does. 


The benefits of an epoxy floor are certain to make it more durable, easier to clean, and add color to a space. It also helps to reduce the “dirty” look that is common to garage floors. One of the major downsides is that this flooring is a temporary solution, requiring regular touch-ups and even reinstallation due to the traffic that garage floors see. 


For those looking to spend their money on something longer-lasting, polyaspartic floors are a great alternative. These floors give a similar look and feel, as well as benefits, to the garage floor, but are 4 times stronger than epoxy floors and have a longer expected life of up to around 50+ years!
