There are so many tricks of the trade when it comes to remodeling or beautifying a living space. Thanks to many interior decorators, bloggers and Pinterest junkies, the creative juices have certainly been flowing and noticed when it comes to the topic of flooring. The hottest design trend on the market when it comes to flooring is stamped concrete. What is stamped concrete, you ask? It’s exactly as it sounds, but the true definition (Thanks Wikipedia!) is “ concrete that is patterned and/or textured or embossed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, wood, and various other patterns and textures.” You can only imagine what a dream stamped concrete is to designers and those of you who were blessed with creative blood. The possibilities of designs and patterns are endless.
Resurfacing can be done just about anywhere. At personal residences we have done an abundance of projects including, but of course not limited to: porches, patios, pool decks, driveways, interior walls, and basement floors.
You heard that right, basement floors – what a genius idea! Think about all of the obstacles that you have to overcome when it comes to basement maintenance. Moisture and humidity is the number one concern that we hear about when it comes to basement flooring. Hardwoods are a hard material to maintain in a very humid climate such as a basement due to warping and splitting. Carpeting is a viable option but keep in mind that it will soak up the moisture in the air resulting in a quicker flooring replacement and potential mold issue. No one wants to deal with mold!
Concrete resurfacing is an ideal option for basements. In a nutshell, very thin layers of concrete are applied to the base concrete slab and then once dried and made into the visual pattern desired, a top coat sealer is applied as the finishing touch! Concrete flooring is breathable, so it can withstand the moisture of a basement, but it is also mold-resistant. The flooring surface is extremely easy to maintain and clean – just grab your mop and go to town! It’s also a great idea and option to throw a couple of rugs down to add additional texture and a possible pop of color in your basement once the flooring is completed. Overall, it is a very simple, cost effective project and you will LOVE the results for years and years to come.
