Garage floors take a bit of pounding over their lifetime, from cars, heavy garden equipment and footfall, so it’s essential for your garage floor to be durable and hard-wearing.
MMA resin, a superior garage flooring material, is something that’s going to tick all of those boxes. It’s durable, hard-wearing, lasts for years, and unlike both paint and epoxy, it won’t peel when it comes into contact with warm tyres.
At Fusion Coatings, we would like to help you answer any questions you have about MMA resin floors, so here are some of the factors that can affect the cost of a garage resin floor.
Size of the area
This may seem like an obvious place to start, but the size of the area that you’re going to be covering with MMA resin is going to affect how much you expect to pay for a resin floor.
One thing that’s worth bearing in mind is economies of scale. A larger overall area will cost more to cover but will be less expensive per m².
The layout of your garage floor is also going to have an impact on the cost of your resin garage flooring.
For example, covering a large, flat square of ground with resin is going to be less work than covering an awkwardly shaped floor. The more work needed for your floor, the more expensive it will be.
Condition of the substrate
What is the condition of the floor that you’re going to have resin applied to? You’ll need a flat, level floor to apply MMA resin to. If it’s in poor condition, it will require a lot of preparation and remedial work, which may increase the overall price.
Build up requirements
If you need to build up your substrate floor in order to add a level layer of resin, this will add to the overall price tag of any resin garage floor.
A thin layer of resin may suffice, but if your substrate is really rough, you may need fillers up to 4mm thick, which will add to the overall cost of your installation.
The level of finish you require from your flooring is also going to affect the cost. What features would you like your resin garage floor to have?
– Do you want a nonslip coating?
– Do you need it to be UV resistant?
– Do you need it to be resistant to certain chemicals?
Obviously, the quality and durability of the finish of your resin floor is going to make a difference to its overall price, so it’s essential to figure out what your unique needs are before you commence installation.
MMA resin flooring is a much better contender than garage floor paint or garage floor epoxy resin. It’s more durable and it doesn’t peel when it takes a battering from either warm car tyres or everyday wear and tear.
