Compare Concrete with Other Materials

Stained concrete floors and hardscapes offer a number of advantages that other flooring materials can't match, particularly when a homeowner is looking for a one-of-a-kind custom look. Below, we compare stained concrete floors with other popular surfaces.

The Benefits of Stained Concrete

Colors

Stained Concrete is available in a wide array of colors; in fact, your options are truly unlimited.

Durability and Longevity

Few flooring materials have the inherent durability and longevity of concrete. Carpet, tile and even real hardwood floors will need replacement eventually. Stained concrete is a more sustainable and earth-friendly solution.

Custom

All of our stained concrete floors are customized to our clients’ design preferences. Unlike Real Stone, for example, we can alter the look, texture, finish and stained concrete color to achieve the exact feel our client desires. No two projects are the same; each floor or exterior hardscape is handcrafted and designed specifically to complement the architectural elements of the homeowner.

Heat Storage and Solar Energy

Concrete flooring can be the most natural form of “heated flooring” in existence. It absorbs the heat of the sun during the day and will release the stored heat as needed in the evening. Concrete is considered one of the best energy-efficient and sustainable materials today.

Humidity and Moisture Resistant

Stained concrete, tile and real stone are the only flooring materials truly resistant to moisture damage.

Mold, Mildew, Dust Mite and Allergen Resistant

Concrete fares much better than carpet and even hardwood floors when moisture is present. If allergies are an issue for the homeowner, stained concrete is a perfect solution.

Cost

The cost per square foot will vary depending on the complexity of the job. For example, if a concrete slab needs to be poured before the application of stain, it could be more than the listed price. Here is a general range provided by some 3rd party resources.
