While many people look at tile, carpeting, or other flooring options, many of our clients are understanding that concrete floors are the way to go. This is because they are both economical and easy to maintain and will last a lifetime. However, are you afraid that your concrete floor will resemble that of your grandmother’s basement?
Many potential clients understand that Steel and Propre are leaders in commercial cleaning. We provide many commercial building owners with a level of clean and sanitization services that cannot be beaten. However, many of our clients do not understand that we also offer concrete installation and finishing. We offer this as we saw a need to upgrade our client’s flooring to give them the very best commercial flooring on the market. While there are other flooring options out there, there isn’t a better choice than concrete. This substance is virtually indestructible and can be tinted, painted, and coated to have a finish all its own. When it comes to having a floor that you can be proud of and will last for years to come, there isn’t anything better than concrete.
During our concrete install and finishing, we will take a moment to discover what type of finished look you would like to achieve. Again, this isn’t your grandmother’s basement flooring. This type of floor is sleek, inviting, durable, and will look amazing for years to come, not to mention easy to clean and sanitize. As a commercial building owner, you simply cannot go wrong with concrete floors. Let’s look at some of the different finishes you might consider.
When it comes to adding texture and color to concrete floors, various types of finishes are available. Popular options include acid staining, polished concrete, stamped concrete, and epoxy coatings. Each type has its own unique characteristics that can add visual interest to floors while also providing protection from wear and tear.
Stamped Concrete is one popular option that adds visual interest to floors while also being extremely durable. This type of finish involves stamping patterns into freshly poured or existing concrete to create a three-dimensional effect on the surface once it dries. The cost will vary depending on the complexity of the pattern you choose. However, it is usually more affordable than other types of finishing options like tile or hardwood flooring installation costs. But, it can resemble these types of flooring without the maintenance costs while providing a beautiful floor for years to come.
Dyed Concrete is another way you can customize your floor’s look. This is done by using permanent colorants mixed directly into freshly poured wet cement slurry before curing begins to give it an even more personalized look! This process uses either:
All this is at much lower prices than traditional wood/tile installation.
Polished Concrete is another type of finish that involves grinding down an existing slab to achieve a high gloss shine through diamond polishing techniques (which requires special machinery). Or, if you prefer something less glossy, then applying sealer coatings will do just fine yet still provide excellent protection against wear & tear. Both of these procedures come at reasonable prices compared to other materials such as tiles/hardwoods, etc.
Coatings are applied over existing surfaces to add extra durability and protection. There are two common types of concrete coatings, which are acrylic and epoxy. The most common of these two is epoxy because of its overall durability. Once your epoxy flooring is complete, your concrete is sealed and protected for years to come. An epoxy floor looks amazing and will last very long without much maintenance. You simply need to keep it clean, as you would any floor. There isn’t any waxing needed, and you won’t have to worry about breaking it as you would tile. Furthermore, designs can be placed directly into the epoxy or onto the concrete floor, such as lines indicating aisles or rows. Lots can be done using coated concrete.
While these are some of the most common ways to complete your new concrete floor, there are many others as well as combinations. What type of look would you like to see on your floor? Would you like your logo placed within the flooring, or maybe you need to have various isles marked to make movement within the facility easier? All of this can be done, and so much more! Concrete flooring isn’t just for industrial applications. It can be utilized in all sorts of different venues to provide our customers with the flooring they can be proud of.
