Garage Floor Coatings: How Much is My Garage Floor Really Going to Cost?
How much does a garage floor coating cost?
This is always one of the first questions a customer has when starting to research different companies and different options for garage floor coatings. Part of the problem with answering this question is there are so many variables when evaluating a project and why it’s recommended to have a professional do a comprehensive site-survey to accurately quote you. Existing coatings, excessive oil contamination, extensive cracks will obviously change the pricing of any system as the additional prep will take more time.
All that being said, I will do my best to give an *average cost based on your average garage floor for the Portland, OR & Vancouver, WA area.
They are by far the most popular solution for garage floor coatings and you can expect to invest $4-700 for a standard 2 car garage plus your time of course.

Many times clients are replacing worn out epoxy floors with Polyurea coatings for a longer lasting system and in a typical garage floor which sees normal use you would expect these types of coatings to last the lifetime of the home with little to no maintenance.
We see warranties ranging from 7 – lifetime depending on the system a client chooses to have applied to their floor, but most systems will be 4 coats – again, always insist on warranty information prior to commencing any project and ensure your contractor is an approved installed for the materials they propose to use.
