Why do I need an epoxy sealer on my concrete floors?

For the same reason you wear a helmet when riding a bike or a seatbelt in the car - protection.

Concrete surfaces may look and feel unbreakable, but damage happens gradually on a micro-level. While you may not notice the effects of oil, moisture, chemical spills, impact, and weather, your concrete can crack, fade, and stain.

An epoxy sealer protects your concrete from daily wear and tear, as it’s harder than the concrete itself. Standard concrete typically has a compression strength of 4,000 to 5,000 PSI. Whereas epoxy coating clocks in at 10,000 PSI or more (two to three times stronger than concrete).

With epoxy coating your concrete enjoys a durable finish that moisture, oils and spills can’t penetrate. At the same time, epoxy offers UV-resistance to prevent fading and premature aging.

The end result?

Your concrete lasts longer, requires less maintenance, and looks stunning year after year.

Should I use an acrylic sealer or an epoxy coating?

If you’ve got a concrete floor, whether inside or outside, there’s a good chance you’ll want it to maintain its look and durability for as long as possible. The concrete sealer market is roughly divided into two broad categories: surface sealers and penetrating sealers.

To this end, there are two primary surface sealing/coating options available:

  • Acrylic Sealer
  • Epoxy Coating

But how do you tell which option is right for you?

Here’s a short breakdown of each option to help you make an informed decision.

Acrylic sealers are available as water-based or solvent-based formulas. These are used to enhance the colour of your current or future concrete floors while adding protection across interior and exterior settings. Applied as a thin layer of film, acrylic sealants protect against water and chloride while allowing moisture in your slab to escape.

Epoxy coating, in contrast, provides a protective film that is non-porous, providing advanced protection against water, spills, chemicals, and moisture of all kinds. Typically with a glossy finish, epoxy is the preferred choice for many Melbourne homeowners and businesses who value longevity, abrasion resistance, and a premium finish.

The right concrete sealing option for you will come down to personal choice and the needs of your surface, but we recommend epoxy for its long lifespan, higher bond strength, and superior overall performance.

Benefits of epoxy concrete sealing

Sealing your Melbourne concrete floors does more than keep moisture away. With an epoxy coating, you’ll enjoy floors that look better, last longer, and keep money in your pocket.

Read on for some of the advantages that come with epoxy concrete sealing.

✔ High-quality protection: Between feet, traffic, impact, and environment, your concrete is facing countless challenges. The epoxy coating offers leading protection against...well, pretty much everything. From chemical spills to leaking petrol, UV rays to rain, sealed concrete floors have a shield that keeps colour and form intact.

✔ Helps concrete maintain its colour: You probably enjoy some time out in the sun, but your concrete surfaces don’t. The sun’s harmful UV rays can lead to fading and discolouration, but by sealing your concrete with an epoxy coating, you’ll prevent premature fading and keep your surfaces looking fresh for longer.

✔ Increase concrete lifespan: Your concrete is already durable, but with epoxy protection you increase the lifespan of your slab by decades (up to 25 years in the right conditions). The less maintenance and repair required, the more money you keep in your pocket.

✔ Eliminate mould and bacteria: Unsealed concrete can attract moisture that seeps into the pores of your concrete. Not only does this cause hairline fractures and cracks, but excess moisture creates the perfect conditions for mould and bacteria. With a non-porous seal, epoxy coating keeps mould and bacteria at bay, and your surfaces clean inside and out.

✔ Quick and simple process: Despite adding decades of endurance, applying the epoxy coating is a quick and straightforward process when managed by Melbourne’s leading flooring experts at Flawless Floorz. That means less disruption to your life or business and less worry about the state of your concrete surfaces.

How much does epoxy concrete sealer cost?

Epoxy coating costs between $30 to $35 per m2 for two coats over a prepared concrete surface.

Keep in mind, you may require floor preparation to ensure your epoxy coating is applied correctly. If concrete grinding is required, expect to pay $80 to $100 per m2 in total.

The quote supplied by your local Melbourne flooring company will also take into account:

  • The size of your concrete floor
  • The condition of your concrete floor
  • The decorative finish you’re looking for (e.g. metallic epoxy, epoxy flake)

Generally speaking, you’ll find more cost-effective prices for larger surface areas as the set-up and preparation costs can go toward a larger project. Be sure to provide as much detail as possible when requesting quotes. Most garages and commercial floors aren’t in pristine condition, and any extra floor prep will increase your price.

At Flawless Floorz, we understand the importance of staying in control of your household or business budget. For that reason, all of our concrete services are budget-friendly with zero hidden fees or charges waiting to sting you down the line.

How to find the best epoxy flooring experts in Melbourne

Direct experience, skill, and correct licenses and insurance are the pillars of a professional epoxy flooring company.

Flooring companies can have years of experience working with decorative concrete or acrylic sealants, but if they don’t have a track record of success supplying and installing epoxy coatings, they’ll quickly find themselves in a sticky situation (literally).

To find Melbourne’s best epoxy flooring experts, look for a portfolio of previous work and a range of customer testimonials to see how others have found their work.

Outside of these steps, you’ll want to compare a handful of local flooring companies to find the right option for you. Although Google or word of mouth will offer plenty of choices, you’ll need to do your homework to find the best business.

Use this question list to help guide your conversation and find Melbourne’s leading epoxy flooring experts:

  • How many years of experience do you have with epoxy floor coatings?
  • Can I speak with your previous customers about their experience with you?
  • Do you staff all of your own flooring experts or do you rely on subcontractors?
  • Can I see proof of your license, insurance, and applicable accreditation?
  • How long does an epoxy coating generally take to install?
  • What is your process for minimising disruption to my business or home?

How often will my concrete floors need sealing?

Don’t be fooled by Melbourne flooring companies who tell you your concrete needs annual sealing (they’re more interested in your money than adding value). We recommend sealing concrete every 2 to 5 years, depending on the amount of traffic and wear and tear it receives.

If your garage is used to house the family car, you’ll likely need fewer resealing services than a commercial garage with heavy vehicle traffic.

Staying on top of your recommended resealing ensures your concrete surfaces remain protected, your seal stays in optimal condition, and you get the most value out of your floors.

A little research will go a long way and help you separate the unlicensed cowboys from the professional, licensed, and insured teams.

Frequently Asked Questions About Epoxy Concrete Sealer in Melbourne

Does an epoxy coating give off harmful vapours?

No.

Cured epoxy poses no health risks with all of our market-leading resins offering no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) or other harmful vapours. Although liquid epoxy may produce vapours during the drying process, we adhere to the highest safety regulations and processes to ensure your garage, home, business, or industrial space is safe until your epoxy coating is cured.

Can epoxy be applied over existing paint?

We don’t recommend applying an epoxy coating to a painted concrete surface as the paint will inhibit optimal bonding of your epoxy coating to your concrete surface. We offer a range of floor preparation services including concrete grinding and concrete polishing to strip any coatings and install a new epoxy coating that’s fully bonded and engineered to stand the test of time.

Is epoxy a slippery surface?

No.

Epoxy is naturally slip-resistant and ideal for heavy foot traffic areas like commercial kitchens or retail outlets. However, we can apply an optional non-slip finish to provide even more grip. This is typically used in locations that experience a lot of rain.
