These are the top 5 myths I’ve heard over the past 10 years working in a garage floor coatings business. Some from customers, some from people in the industry. Here we debunk the top 5 most common garage flooring myths.
Myth #1 – Professional Garage Floor Coatings are VERY expensive!
Well, if you call some of the shadier garage makeover businesses in our service area, you will get quoted a very expensive price. Some of our customers got quotes from our competitors who wanted to charge $8 - $12 per square foot to coat their garage floor. That’s almost criminal.
A professionally installed, epoxy/Polyaspartic decorative chip floor coating need not cost any more than $6 per square foot for a two car garage with good condition concrete. Our warrantied, easy to clean decorative chip floors are even less than that. I admit it’s not cheap. But neither was that SUV that will look better on a beautiful (well done) garage floor coating.
And, don’t get fooled by the # of layers some other companies talk up, the math doesn’t always add up (see Garage Coatings Math: When 3 is Greater Than 5).
