Different Types of Concrete Flooring
What Everybody Ought to Know
Most people think of concrete as a practical, but uninspiring flooring material. Large hardware stores are a great example, they’re known for their essential concrete flooring. It’s practical, but not aesthetically appealing to the eye. It turns out concrete’s been getting a bad reputation for years that’s entirely undeserved. Concrete is actually a versatile flooring material that can add a great deal of value to any space.
Here’s a quick look at some of the different options available on the market today.
Standard epoxy flooring is functional and versatile. Epoxy is a practical surface usually found in industrial / commercial settings and very much in residential garages. Its high resistance to corrosive chemicals and quick-drying properties make it a perfect fit. They’re designed to withstand impacts better and they’re also made to be slip-resistant. Made of resin and hardeners, epoxy flooring, when installed correctly, will not to lift or peel under your cars tires.
It’s created by applying three different layers to give it a practical finish. The first layer is a primer, followed by a body coat and a finish coat. The end result – a stylish, durable and inexpensive solution for your floors.
Natural Stone Epoxy
This exciting new combination captures the beauty of a natural polished concrete look. It’s the first time (other than metallics) that the epoxy flake blends have changed at all in 20 years. It simply has new blends of flake that give the appearance of natural stone (no actual stone in it) for a fantastic finished look! This is the new favourite for many homeowners.
For another distinctive look, you may want to opt for a metallic epoxy finish. When the concrete is finished, a metallic pigment is added to the surface, this typically results in matchless swirls and patterns. The outcome is appealing to the eye and popular in contemporary homes today. A great thing about using metallic epoxy is that every project always turns out unique. You’re guaranteed to have a one-of-a-kind floor when you’re done. Additionally, this being a great selling feature when the time comes.
Overlays & Stamped Concrete
Overlays and stamped concrete are more common on exterior concrete surfaces. Whether you’re wanting a marbled look, a flagstone appearance or even be made to look like cobblestone or tiles, it can be done with concrete resurfacing. There are so many different options which are ideal for patio and pool surrounds, courtyards, driveways, pathways and entries.
