Resin floor cost

The average resin floor cost per square metre is between £7 and £15 per m2 for floor coating. If, however, you want the ultimate resin flooring and opt for a high-performance polyurethane flooring, the resin floor cost per square metre will be a lot higher, more in the region of £50 - £100 per m2.

Whatever type of resin flooring option you go for, preparation is key. Your floors will need to be in good condition before any resin is added, so make sure you factor in the cost of any floor prep work into your budget.

Factors affecting overall cost

There are a number of factors that will affect the price you pay for a resin floor, including:

  • Condition of existing flooring and extent of prep work needed.
  • Any substrate or structural layers needed before pouring.
  • Size and layout of floor area.
  • Type of resin floor used. For example, a polished resin floor cost may be higher.
  • Any special finishes, such as anti-slip coating.
  • Where you live.

One thing to note about the size of the floor area is that larger areas will be more expensive in total, but you will typically get a lower resin floor cost per square metre, thanks to economies of scale.
