When choosing flooring for your apartment complex, you have to consider foot traffic and moving furniture. You also want to create an environment that’s well taken care of and makes people want to live there; it needs to be well-decorated and welcoming. The lobby is essentially part of your renters’ homes, so you want both the lobby and individual apartments to look nice.
Polished concrete floors are durable, easy to maintain, cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing. Below are a few of the reasons why polished concrete is the best move for apartment complexes!
Polished concrete is an ideal choice for apartments because it lasts a long time and can be used throughout the entire building, in individual apartments, hallways, lobbies, entryways, community spaces and laundry rooms. Concrete is extremely durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic, as well as frequent move-ins and move-outs consisting of large furniture and moving carts. This flooring can also handle pet paws and claws and wheelchairs.
Easy to maintain
Any apartment owner can learn to appreciate polished concrete floors as they’re easy to take care of. They’re also cost-efficient upfront and over time. When you install them, you won’t need maintenance for a few years. When the time to re-polish them does come, the process can be completed overnight so residents, their pets and guests can resume their normal routines.
We recommend re-polishing every three to five years. You don’t need to worry as much about areas that see less traffic, such as individual apartments; you will mainly need to keep up with polishing heavy-traffic areas such as communal spaces and the lobby. Any daily debris can easily be dusted, and any mess from snowy or rainy weather can be mopped with warm, soapy water.
Lots of colors and textures to choose from
If you’re looking for an aesthetically pleasing flooring option, polished concrete can give you virtually any color and texture to choose from. Decorative concrete is ideal for apartment complexes, and it creates a great first impression. Potential residents and guests judge an apartment building by the looks of the original walkthrough or visit. Wow them with polished concrete!
