There are so many benefits to installing a polished concrete floor in your garage or industrial space, but have you ever considered bringing it inside your home? The versatility of the concrete provides a great alternative to hardwood floors or carpeting that can be expensive to install and a pain to maintain. This out-of-the-box flooring choice will impress your guests and help you feel at home.
Clean up on aisle two
First things first, you want a floor that looks nice and gives you peace of mind. How many times have you panicked over a wine spill or a Sharpie in the hands of your toddler? Those stains may never come out of your carpeting. Luckily, polished concrete floors are extremely easy to clean and care for. A spill doesn’t have to turn into a stain.
It ain’t gonna rain no more
A common complaint about hardwood floors is that they warp over time due to moisture. The appeal of a beautiful wood floor is drastically diminished when each plank is disfigured. Concrete, on the other hand, is water-resistant and, when installed properly, stands up to evil moisture that may be in the air or on your floors.
If you still want that hardwood look without all of the fuss, a polished concrete floor is definitely your solution. The large variety of paints and sealants available make any concrete floor customizable to your tastes. Do you want a modern look? A trained professional can install a floor that looks like marble or limestone. If you want a more rugged homey vibe in your house, request a wood-like finish. Concrete floors also make for a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces of your home. The options are endless!
Keep it green
Since no natural resources go into installing a concrete floor, it’s a more sustainable flooring option. The floors also naturally retain temperature, both hot and cold, better than carpet and hardwood so you’ll see your energy bills go down.
Save your money
On average, polished concrete floors are less expensive to install and maintain than other flooring options. Of course, this depends on the desired outcome and the cost differs slightly from project to project. However, even the most luxurious concrete floor will save you money in the long run.
Love it forever
When properly installed and cared for, your home’s interior floor can last centuries. It can outlive everything else in your house. There is actually no flooring option more durable than a concrete one. Minor wear and tear is to be expected, but maintenance is often minimal and therefore inexpensive.
Keep in mind a polished concrete floor is only a great option when installed by a professional. Most of the floor’s benefits stem from proper sealing so it’s crucial the concrete is installed right the first time. Get in touch with our professional team and we’ll help you get started!
