FAQ’s for Garage Floor Refinishing

What is the lifespan of an epoxy floor system?

Depending on the wear and tear of your garage floor (car traffic, impact, UV exposure etc.) the average garage floor should last a minimum of 8-10 years before needing to be resurfaced.

How long does the usual garage floor refinishing project take?

For a standard 2 car garage (or equivalent sized space…) depending on the floor system you choose, the average professional job takes 2-3 days to complete. Cement floors both old and new, need to be properly prepared with a diamond grinder, patch work and a prime coat applied (day 1) followed by two top coats with the option of acrylic flakes applied between coats (day 2).

What is the cost of refinishing my garage floor?

The cost for a home owner to refinish the average two car garage varies based on product selection, but can be done for an estimated $1,000 or less. The most important understanding is that considerable research and man hours are required to apply a long-lasting durable coating. There are cheaper, residential grade options for homeowners to consider, but the coating usually only lasts 2 years before high traffic areas need to be resurfaced.

Unfortunately, the cost of having your garage floor professionally refinished fluctuates considerably and is impossible to properly estimate without key information. Epoxy versus poly aspartic systems, the amount of patchwork required to properly prepare the floor and approximate square footage are important elements to compiling an accurate professional quotation.
