When you’re looking to re-do your floor, there are seemingly endless flooring options to choose from. Every style and flooring material has its advantages and disadvantages, which can make the buying process quite an undertaking. For every flooring option, you’ll find people who sing its praises and others who talk about its drawbacks. No matter what flooring material you’re looking at, you’ll see both positive and negative posts that aim to help you with your decision-making process.
Well I’m going to level with you; this is one of those posts. This post is about a flooring option that many homeowners all over the world are already enjoying.
Stamped concrete is an extremely durable flooring option that uses concrete stamps to create beautiful, custom patterns and designs that are long-lasting and decorative. Stone, slate, marble, pavers, wood, and asphalt are common materials used for a whole host of floors, but they can’t stand up to the overall quality of a professionally done stamped concrete floor.
In addition to its durability, ease of maintenance, customization, and longevity, stamped concrete is also very affordable when compared to other flooring choices. Stamped concrete is much more affordable than other comparable flooring materials, even when professionally installed.
The following list shows how stamped concrete measures up against comparable flooring materials.
Plain Concrete: $6-$12 per sq. ft.
Stamped Concrete: $10-$15 per sq. ft.
Concrete Pavers: $13-$20 per sq. ft.
Brick: $14-$20 per sq. ft.
Natural Stone: $25 or more per sq. ft.
Slate or Marble: $17-$28 per sq. ft.
Add this to the durability, customization options, aesthetic beauty, and longevity, it’s no surprise that more and more homeowners are choosing stamped concrete for their floors, patios, walkways, and more.
