The price per square metre of microcement depends on a variety of different factors, including the cost of the professional applying the microcement, and the operator’s associated costs of displacement, materials, difficulty and quality of the work, etcetera.
To obtain a quality result with long-term guarantees, three conditions are necessary: the correct preparation of the support; the selection of a good product and the choice of a qualified and experienced professional.
State and nature of the surface to be coated with microcement
If the support is in poor condition or the conditions are inappropriate, it is essential to work on improving the support and condition it adequately before the application of the coating, which will increase the cost of materials and labour.

For example, if one wanted to apply the microcement to floors, or to tiled walls, it would be necessary to follow a few steps in order to avoid visible joints, which would increase both the work and the final cost.
The complexity of microcement application
The walls of a bathroom with one (or several) pillars, a staircase, a washbasin or a countertop, are all examples of laborious application because they involve small surfaces, with many corners and edges, in which the use of the trowel is more complicated and, therefore, more costly.
The use of different colours in the same environment also increases the working time because it is essential to delimit meticulously with painter’s tape the different zones. It is also necessary to wait until the applied colour has dried properly, to protect it, in order that it does not smudge before starting the next colour.
Total of the metres for coating treatment
Generally, the more meters to be coated, the lower the price per m2 of microcement, and conversely, the smaller the area then the price per m2 will be greater.
This occurs due to the fact that there are fixed costs and times (hours of work) that are not directly dependent on the metres to be coated.
The professionalism of the operator
A specific training is essential with great attention paid to detail. A professional operator must control all types of microcement application, knowing what method of work to follow in every case, and following each step scrupulously. Respecting the steps of the application is fundamental in order to achieve a good result
Quality of the Materials
Topciment is the Spanish microcement manufacturer with the greatest number of years of experience in the market. It manufactures all the products that it sells, except for the tools and accessories. Otherwise, it would be very difficult to control the quality of the complete system. When Topciment offers a guarantee, not a single component failure is risked because that would make the whole system fail. An example of this are the Topsealer WT varnishes, developed specifically for microcement, which enjoy great international prestige.
Obviously high quality has an increased production cost, and therefore a price higher than some customers may be willing to pay. Microcemento Topciment does not compete in price but in quality, so it does not skimp on latest generation additives and elaboration processes.
The client must know how to value the product’s quality, as well as the good professional know how to use it well. All products or services have a price that can fluctuate. If you are not acquainted with a microcement professional, we would advise you to always request three different quotes, and always discard the most economic.
