We live in a world where we have so many different options for everything, and your flooring choice is no exception. So out all the things to choose from, why should you choose concrete for your space? We’ll give you the reasons that concrete is a great choice for your space. And we won’t just tell you about it, we’ll do it for you too.
Durability – Concrete Lasts a Lifetime
Concrete floors can have a lifespan of a lifetime and durability that is incomparable to other types of floors. Concrete floors are mixed and poured with specific materials in mind so that they can withstand immense weight of heavy equipment, deflect scratches and dents, and resist chemicals that would typically stain, alter, and destroy other floors. These aspects alone make concrete the go to choice for facilities like warehouses and factories, but restaurants, medical facilities, and office spaces that are looking for a flooring choice that will resist the everyday wear and tear usage can also find concrete floors very appealing.
Save time and energy by selecting a flooring type that you won’t have to spend hours soaking up stains, power scrubbing, and cleaning. Concrete Floors are easy to clean, sanitary, and won’t hold water, moisture, food or drink remnants, stains, or anything else that will cause more problems later on.
In addition, other floors get worn out over time. Concrete is easy to refresh. Not only do we perform the original service, we have maintenance plans where we can come back as frequently as you’d like to re-polish your floors and give them that ‘New Floor’ shine. It’s as simple as that.
Versatility – Endless Choices
Our favorite thing about concrete staining and polishing is that every floor is so unique. You can choose how much of the aggregate you want, the color, the colors intensity, and the intensity of the shine. Concrete floors go with almost any design choice, and will truly compliment the space.
Economical and Environmentally Friendly
The good thing about concrete floors is that they are already placed under nearly every floor you already have, so you don’t have to order the materials (but if you do, that’s okay too) (and if you need help removing the current flooring – we’ve got you covered – pop on over to our flooring removal services page). Concrete is cost effective and won’t need replaced over time like other flooring types. And if you want a change, we can re-grind and re-stain in the future.
Concrete stains and polishes don’t contain volatile organic compounds. No hazardous chemicals are used in installation or during maintenance. Spaces with concrete floors also are more energy efficient, decreasing other expenses of your space.
The Cons – and why they actually aren’t that big of a deal
Comfort – Hard and Cold
It’s no surprise that concrete is a hard surface. Standing on them for a long time can be uncomfortable. They don’t absorb heat well. These initially appear bigger issues than they actually are. There are so many ways to soften up a space, including rugs, mats curtains, soft pillows and furniture. Know your space. Most industrial and commercial spaces have different needs and uses than residential spaces. Often the many benefits of concrete are much greater, and adding other areas of comfort is a small price to pay for those benefits.
