You have finally decided to tear down the walls, add more square footage, replace the tile and area rugs... You know what that means? It’s time to remodel! It can be very overwhelming when it comes to picking out what kind of flooring you want. However, there is one option that many don’t think about - polished concrete! It’s not just for sidewalks; concrete floors are very stylish inside and outside of your home. These are the benefits of adding polished concrete floors to your remodel plans!
It is Super Durable
This means the material is difficult to damage. It works great for offices, corporate buildings, living rooms, entrance ways and other rooms. This is because office desks, furniture, pet claws and more will not scratch the surface! While it is possible to chip or scratch the surface, you would have to work pretty hard at this which means beautiful and long lasting floors for years to come.
It is Very Easy to Maintain
Polished concrete floors are not only extremely durable, but they are also very easy to maintain. If concrete flooring is not maintained it can crack easily. This is why at Custom Concrete we suggest epoxy and polished concrete floors to all our clients. These are our tips for maintaining epoxy flooring!
It Is Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly
In most cases, there is already concrete underneath existing flooring. This means that to add polished or epoxy floors, you just need to remove the flooring that is placed on top. If there is no new materials produced, there is no carbon footprint or depletion of resources. Concrete is sustainable because:
- Light Colors: The naturally light colors or concrete allows for a higher reflection than other types of flooring which means less energy is required to light the space.
- Energy Efficient: The thermal mass of concrete helps to moderate temperatures.
- Locally Produced: This means less carbon is released from trucks.
These are just a few reasons why concrete is sustainable. Check out our blog, “6 reasons Why Concrete is Sustainable” for more information!
The Design Options are Nearly Limitless
When most think of concrete flooring they think of sidewalks with the typical light-gray surface. However, epoxy flooring and polished concrete flooring are the exact opposite. Some of the most beautiful flooring is actually concrete. You can make it look like wood, have a funky design, or just have a plain color of your choosing. It is all up to you and your preference!
It is An Affordable Solution When It Comes to Remodeling
Concrete floors can be extremely affordable, depending on how intricate you want your design to be. Overall, concrete floors will save you money in the long run. This is because these floors are made to last for decades and have less maintenance than hardwood or carpet flooring options. The best part is... if you already have a concrete subfloor you won’t have much to remodel!
