Is epoxy flooring expensive?

Well, that's an easy question to ask, but a hard one to answer. A lot depends on the amount of preparation required and flooring system you choose. Many contractors under-price flooring projects, meaning they have to cut corners to cover their costs.

At Allied Finishes, our strength lies in recognising the need of fast, quality flooring at a price that saves you significantly in the future. We're in and out again in a very short time-frame, whilst ensuring you won't need to call us back for many years to come!

A recent scenario may assist in demonstrating this:


An Allied Finishes consultant visited a well known food manufacturing facility to provide a quotation on their flooring works.
After two weeks of receiving the quote, the site manager decided to proceed with an unknown flooring contractor at a much lower price.

Roughly 6 months later, this site manager called the AF consultant he had previously requested a quote from, asking if we could look at his floors again - they seemed to be failing miserably.

And failing they were! An obvious lack of preparation, a basic two-coat system applied with minimal effort and no proper finish to the project. 

The client decided to go with Allied Finishes' proposal, which yes, was much pricier than the previous flooring contractor, but has and will last him many years into the future.

The point to make here, is that if this client had made the decision to go with Allied Finishes to begin with, it would have saved him both time and money, as he would have our quality guarantee to start with.
