We’ve discussed in the past how stained and polished concrete is perfect for most retail & commercial applications, but did you ever stop to consider how great a decorative concrete floor would be for your home?
In the past, the bare concrete floor of your home was something you either covered with a pad and carpeting or some other type of flooring. Well, concrete isn’t just for patios, sidewalks, and pool decks anymore - and it certainly isn’t something to cover up, either. With countless colors, stains, and aggregates available, a decorative concrete surface will not only match pretty much any decor and style you’re aiming for, but it will also stand up to anything you and your family can do to it. Whether you choose to add a texture or to have it polished and buffed to a beautiful luster, they’re virtually indestructible
Durable & Easy to Maintain
While there are countless benefits to having a decorative concrete surface in your home, the two biggest factors are probably its durability and ease to maintain. Because it’s concrete, you won’t ever have to think about replacing it. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about unsightly chips, scratches, dents or gouges like the kind you’d get in conventional tile and laminate flooring. Doing away with carpet can also help you with the overall health of your home, since carpet can harbor a whole world of unseen particles, dust, pet dander and dirt, anyway. Speaking of pets, you’ll also find pet hair to be a non-issue. A quick sweep and a mop are all you need to get the floor back to looking new.
Green & Energy Efficient
If you’re environmentally conscious and into being “green,” not only does concrete conserve the use of materials and resources, but unlike carpets and other flooring that has to be replaced and disposed of, concrete is as permanent as your home’s foundation. Not needing additional floor covering saves you thousands of dollars over the life of your home. And when it comes to energy efficiency, concrete is great at helping you keep your energy costs down, regardless of the season. Because concrete is such a great conductor of heat, it can help keep heating costs lower by retaining any thermal heat it may gather during the day from natural sunlight that comes into the home. And because it stays naturally cool, it’s also a perfect fit for summer’s warmer months.
