Default pricing for epoxy floor coatings

Anyone here ever done an aircraft hangar non skid floor coating? if so what would be an average cost per sq'? approx. surface area 10000 square feet.

The last epoxy floor that I did, I got paid around $0.50 psqft including labor prep and materials.

Keep in mind this is in Canada where we have much higher product costs which made up a significant portion of this, so I am sure that you can do it for approx. half that

$2.85 to 8.00 per ft2... depending on where in the country it is and what the system is... This is the range for doing it right.

Most hanger floors are NOT anti-skid because it is too hard to keep clean and is hard on aircraft tires.

I have no idea what the scope or perspective is on this cost. I'm going to guess that its a very very very thin mil system with minimal prep. for $.50/ft. Typically, aircraft hangars are thick-film 3 coat systems:
  • 100% Solids Epoxy Primer 8-12 mils
  • 100% Solids Body Coat 12-30 mils
  • 90% Solids Urethane Top Coat 3-8 mils
You would also have some ancillary materials to fix things like spalls, cracks, and joints.

Default thanks for imput

thanks for the imput. this is a small portion of a facilities painting contract on a secure military facility. no specs,no site visit, nothing. the real number is 100000 sq feet per year for 5 years. the rest of my numbers im comfortable with, unles anyone knows how much extra to charge for a checkerboard pattern on a water tank?

Keep in mind I made a thread a few months back about this 0.50 psqft epoxy floor.

This was a quote from a ComPany I used to "sub" for, and by sub, i mean they quote, they give me a price, they give me the timeline, and i wear their shirts and am not allowed to reveal that I am a sub, just their way of cheating us.

The product I applied cost almost double what I got paid to do the floor, and I was responsible for product Yeah subs PAYING to do work, isn't it wonderful

Just thought I'd throw that out there, since I'm still a little raw from the experience >.<

Sorry for the confusion, that price would be a death sentence ^>^

I don't have a tonne of experience with the higher end epoxy coatings, I personally only do garage floor type coatings so far.

But even those I'd be around 3 rock bottom

Seems like you would want to get a rep out from a supplier of commercial epoxies. Floor prep. and product are equally important.

When I worked for a commercial painting co., we did floors at Freightliner that held up to new semi-trucks driving on it. It was a Tnemec product, but I forget which line or product.

Argh--i still get mad about that story about CP from you.... .50 sf is highway a$$ raping to the sub...no one can make money at that rate; except CP or collegeP. there's volume profits, and then there's national corps.....their volume goes to 11, and screws the people they "employ." i saw a college outfit in the paint store parking lot on sunday.....all i could think was "dude, you are making someone alot of money. you will make none." i can't remember the dumbass slogan on the collegeP sign, but I did laugh at it. Suckers.....and then there's the customers who use their services who believe they are helping out some poor college kids. Bigger suckers. you risk your most valuable asset and put it in the hands of a kid who took a quick class in the back of a paint store and then hired his frat buddies? Really? who are these people?

That about sums it up.

And 30 odd % royalty rates plus plus plus makes me want to vomit

There is the rare College painter that can make it, but it's far from the norm. I have experience here too.

I've had a rocky career!
