It depends on the epoxy system. It can be a simple epoxy roller coat that can have a low budget of S$10-15 per square meter up to a beautiful highly durable Terrazzo flooring that could cost between S$200-S$300 per square meter.
Most industrial epoxy flooring applications last between 5 to 10 years, though occasionally they last longer. A factor that influences an epoxy coating's lifespan is the strength of the concrete flooring. The initial layer of concrete is the base of your floor and it is the first factor that will determine the lifespan of your epoxy floor coating. Epoxy flooring systems are hard, abrasion-resistant, and have high-impact strength. In residential cases, some epoxy floor coatings have been known to last for 30 years, but industrial and commercial settings are generally subject to much higher rates of vehicular and foot traffic, as well as spills, accidents, or other issues that can wear epoxy down faster.
Epoxy flooring installation requires experience in order to ensure a good finish. Therefore, choosing the right installer for your flooring solution from the start will save cost and the hassle.
Terrazzo is a composite material, poured in place or precast, which is used for floor and wall treatments. It consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass, or other suitable material, poured with a cementitious binder (for chemical binding), polymeric (for physical binding), or a combination of both. Metal strips often divide sections, or changes in colour or material in a pattern. Additional chips may be sprinkled on top of the mix before it sets. After it is cured, surfaces are ground and polished smooth or otherwise finished to produce a uniformly textured surface. "Terrazzo" is also often used to describe any pattern similar to the original terrazzo floors.
If you take your shoes off and keep the floor clean and free of sand, it can still look great after twenty years. Once the terrazzo flooring is looking dull, you simply need to polish it. There will be no need to replace it when the only issue is dullness.
