Most people consider concrete to be drab and outdated. In reality, concrete is one of the most cost-effective and versatile flooring options available. Thanks to recent advances in technology, several finishing techniques can transform the appearance of concrete without compromising its exceptional benefits, such as superior strength and simple maintenance. Concrete is also an environmentally friendly option that can be made from recycled material, which enhances its intrinsic energy efficiency.
Many homeowners and businesses are working with interior designers to create distinctive flooring that complements interior and exterior architectural styles ranging from ultramodern to French provincial. Concrete can be dyed in a wide array of colors to create aesthetically pleasing hues, which can readily match or complement the décor of any business and residential setting. Stamping tools allow the concrete surface to simulate the look of brick, stone and tile as well as a number of unique designs, shapes and patterns. When combined with the right color, concrete can appear to be masonry, which is more expensive to install. Finishing techniques can also add a decorative textured appearance. It can also receive a slip-resistant coating. The sealed concrete resists wear and tear, repels stains and is easy to maintain. The result is a beautiful surface that incorporates the benefits of safety, low cost, ease of maintenance, long life and environmental sustainability. These new techniques also make it possible to save an older concrete surface that has unsightly chips and cracks, which give it a like-new appearance for a fraction of the cost associated with installing another surface.
