Is your home or business in desperate need of a new floor? Does your current floor need revitalized, refinished, or even completely overhauled? If so, you know all the different flooring options you have to choose from. Wood, marble, slate, linoleum, tile, and more, there’s no shortage of flooring designs, patterns, and colors. But what if you want a long-lasting, durable floor that is still decorative? That’s where concrete floors come in.
Concrete floors are a superior flooring material that offers much more than other flooring materials and for that reason, we’ve compiled this post to highlight just 5 of its many advantages.
Concrete is an incredibly durable material and using it ensures your floor will be strong, hard to damage, and will last a very long time.
Another advantage of concrete floors is its affordability when compared to other materials. Even a decorative concrete floor is more cost-effective than other floors. In fact, with the right decorative concrete floor coating, you can get the exact same look of marble, slate, hardwood, granite, or tile for a lower price.
Concrete is low in VOC (volatile organic compounds), meaning it’s not only a great floor, it’s safe for you and the environment. For spaces that already have a poured concrete slab, it’s simply a process of repairing and coating the surface without the need for additional materials like wood or stone to go over top of it. This is easier on your wallet and the environment at the same time.
Unlike other floors that usually create only one or two major designs, concrete is an extremely versatile material that creates endless designs, patterns, shapes, and colors in any space where you can pour concrete. From pool decks to basements, garages to driveways, concrete is a material that can be used anywhere and give you whatever design you’re looking for.
In addition to all of the advantages already listed, concrete is also a low maintenance flooring option. A decorative concrete floor, once sealed, requires very little maintenance and can be cleaned easily by sweeping or mopping. No harsh chemicals, no complicated cleaning process, just soap and water. It’s literally that easy.
If you’re looking for a flooring option that has many advantages over conventional floors, then concrete is the choice for you.
