Transform Your Space with Stylish Epoxy Flake Flooring
Epoxy flake flooring is a popular choice for commercial and residential spaces with a contemporary finish and robust properties. Read on to learn more about cost-effective, pre-engineered flooring that’s equal parts durable, safe, and stunning.
Epoxy flake offers the same protection and strength as a classic epoxy coating - with the addition of a 100% unique finish. This makes flake resin suitable for high foot traffic areas across residential and commercial settings, and with its glossy finish, most liquid substances can be wiped up with ease while moisture protection prevents cracks, mould, and bacteria.
Best of all, upgrading your concrete floors with epoxy flake flooring is as easy as 1,2,3:
- Step One: Choose your base colour
- Step Two: Choose your flake colour
- Step Three: Choose your flake size
At Flawless Floors, we’re Melbourne’s leading experts in transforming tired, aged, and dull concrete surfaces with vibrant, eye-catching sealing finishes. Our professional installation team ensures your new flaked flooring stands up to everything thrown at it, leaving you with an investment that meets your needs for decades to come.

Let’s start with the basics. Concrete has a stellar reputation for being durable and long-lasting - but a reputation for being equally dull and lifeless.
Many traditional concrete applications are characterised by a lack of colour or style, but that doesn’t mean your concrete surfaces need to be drab and grey. Epoxy flake flooring is the innovative and durable floor coating used to protect your concrete surfaces while adding one-of-a-kind visuals that reflect your business or personal style.
The stylish coating, in the form of dry ‘flakes’ scattered on top of an epoxy base coat (also known as ‘broadcasting’), delivers a multi-colour finish ideal in schools, retail settings, garages, houses and everywhere in between.
Offering the same advantage as normal epoxy flooring, but with additional flake included in the second coating to deliver a decorative finish, the end product is a protective layer for your concrete floor that’s visually appealing and aesthetically striking - all without sacrificing strength.

That’s the million-dollar question (thankfully, epoxy flake floors are much cheaper than that).
Although a floor decorated with flakes creates the illusion of a premium surface, you can expect to pay between $70 to $80 per m2 for a garage floor with solid colour epoxy and full flakes.
Keep in mind, these figures are averages only. The final price of epoxy flakes will need to take into account a couple of variables:
- Floor Size: Larger surfaces are more expensive to coat with epoxy flakes.
- Floor Condition: Will your concrete floor need grinding or any preparation? If so, expect to budget more.
When comparing quotes (and we recommend reaching out to a handful of Melbourne concreters), make sure to have all your relevant details at hand. This includes the rough size of your space (don’t worry if you don’t have the measurements down to the exact mm), as well as the condition of your floors (are there any bumps, cracks or stains?). The more accurate your information, the more accurate your quote.
At Flawless Floors we strive to complete each flooring service quickly and efficiently to minimise disruption to your routine. Depending on the condition of your concrete floors and the amount of floor preparation required, epoxy flake flooring typically takes 2 to 3 days to apply.
We work closely with you to deliver the results you’re after, without disrupting your home or business. We’re proud to serve our Melbourne clients and can work to your schedule to ensure you receive the service you deserve.
Our service includes an analysis of your surfaces to determine what (if any) surface preparation is needed prior to epoxy installation. Our simple framework for transforming Melbourne surfaces is broken down into 5 steps.
This is the first (and most important) step. Without proper preparation your epoxy coating may fail to bond with your concrete surface, leading to structural problems that invite damage and moisture over time. This step may include concrete grinding or levelling to ensure all epoxy coatings are long-lasting and of the highest quality.
With your concrete surface properly prepared, it’s time to apply epoxy primer or sealer. This step ensures a strong bond is formed between your concrete floor and the epoxy coat.
Two-pack tinted epoxy paint is applied to the primer coat, causing each layer to bond together. You’ll want to start applying coloured flakes within 10 minutes of your epoxy coat application to let flakes sink into the coating and properly bond.
Now it’s time to add a little flair. We’ll apply (or ‘broadcast’) coloured flakes of your choosing onto the epoxy layer to create a striking, decorative flake effect. These flakes may be applied sparsely, or in a more dense pattern - the design is totally up to you!
To seal in your flakes and leave you with a durable finish we’ll apply two coats of a clear, polyurethane paint. This delivers a scratch and stain-resistant finish that may be polished or matte, depending on your preference. Expect to leave 2 to 3 days drying time before walking on your new floors, and up to 5 days before allowing vehicle traffic.
It’s easy to forget about your floors, whether at home or at work, and assume they’re built to handle anything that’s thrown at them. But when you’re dealing with concrete surfaces, there are plenty of problems to watch out for.
From cracks and structural damage to your concrete slab to lifeless concrete surfaces that leave people thinking your business is equally lacking in personality, your floors play a pivotal role in keeping you safe and your business running.
At Flawless Floorz we understand the ins and outs of working with concrete surfaces of all kinds. From your Melbourne garage that needs to handle a load of a busy family to a retail space that requires a custom flooring solution to compete in a crowded commercial space, we can protect your concrete floors while helping them stand out.

Maintenance is as simple as sweeping or vacuuming dirt and debris, and cleaning your new surface with warm water and soap. Although epoxy flaking offers stylistic advantages over a more traditional epoxy floor coating, it brings the same anti-spill and anti-slip properties with a moisture-resistant finish.
That means you spend more time enjoying your new floor and less time cleaning it.
Epoxy flake flooring is long-lasting and durable, offering the same qualities as more traditional epoxy coatings. This makes a flaked floor perfect for high-traffic areas at home or in your Melbourne business.
With anti-slip qualities, epoxy flake is highly suited to garages and wet areas from commercial auto repair floors to bathrooms. For more information on epoxy garage flooring, head over to our service page.
Epoxy flakes are actually polymer paint aggregates made up of acrylic and vinyl resins. This combination creates a thin flake roughly 4 to 5 mils thick and can be blended in a wide range of colours (up to 150 custom shades available).
Both. Epoxy flake floors are highly durable and suited to a range of settings from residential garages to schools, hospitals and retail locations. The advantage of a flaked floor over traditional epoxy coatings is the aesthetic. Not only does a flaked surface look appealing in a range of settings, but can also hide imperfections, giving you a floor that’s enduring and elegant.
