Concrete Coating Cost

Cost of Applying Concrete Coating

There are a number of factors that will impact the cost of applying a concrete coating. Before hiring a contractor, take some time to think about what you want and how much you would like to spend. This list is intended to 1) help you make an informed hiring decision and 2) to help you determine how much your project will cost.

Here are some of the main cost factors:

1. Geographic location. Where you live can significantly affect the cost of your project. Expect to pay more in big cities than you would in more rural areas. You can use our Concrete Cost Report to find the cost near you. Additionally, residential applications will likely cost less than commercial applications.

2. Surface preparation. Basic surface preparation should be included in the cost estimate. If other coatings have been applied to the concrete in the past, these will need to be removed before the new one is applied. This may require the rental of grinder or shot blaster, adding time and money to the project.

3. Crack repair. Before the coating can be applied, all cracks in the concrete should be repaired, filled, or sealed. Depending on the severity of the cracks, this may contribute significantly to the cost of your project.

4. Type of coating. There are many different concrete coatings available for both indoor and outdoor applications. These coatings can be purely decorative or protective (stain resistance, waterproofing, etc.). Your contractor will help you decide the best option. Some coatings include, 1) epoxy coatings 2) polyurethane coatings, 3) acrylic sealers, or 4) slip resistant coatings.

5. How large is the area? The cost of applying the coating will be determined by the square footage of the area. The larger the area, the more the project will cost.

6. Application method. The method of applying the sealer may also impact the cost. It can be applied with a squeegee, roller, brush, or sprayer.

7. How many coats? Each additional coat will add to the cost of application. Anything more than 2 coats will typically come at an additional cost.

8. Is cleanup included? The cost of cleanup is typically included in the cost of installation. Make sure it is included in the written cost estimate to avoid surprise costs.
