Staining concrete is one of the most popular applications for transforming concrete slabs. Often referred to as colored concrete, homeowners, designers and builders are drawn to stained concrete because of the unique outcome that can be achieved combining colors, application techniques, etc., on cement flooring and other substrates. The results are limited only by the creativity of those involved in the stained concrete process.
ADVANTAGES OF STAINED CONCRETE
Among their many benefits, stained concrete floors are:
- Beneficial to your health. Allergy sufferers don’t get exposed to the dust and mites hiding under carpets.
- Beneficial to the environment and a green building choice. Slow to heat up and cool down, stained concrete can reduce utility bills. Also, because they use the foundation already poured, they eliminate the need to cut down trees or use materials, like carpets, which consume large amounts of energy to manufacture (and destroy).
- Easy to maintain. Just sweep and mop with water throughout the year; then re-wax interior floors and reseal exterior floors once a year.
- Easy on your budget. In new construction, stained concrete runs about half the price of hardwood floors. We are happy to provide a free estimate based on your specifications.
