Concrete and Resin flooring is a great solution for those that want strong and stable flooring used for indoor or outdoor surfaces. Concrete is a hardened solution that is poured onto a surface and left to dry before being used again. Once dried, it can be used to store heavy-duty materials on or be used for flooring, walls, interiors, or garages. Since concrete is heat resistant and can withstand some amounts of water, it makes for a great building material to use on most floor types. Once installed and sealed, it is then easy to maintain and doesn’t require much upkeep over the years. If treated delicately, concrete can easily last anywhere between 12 – 20 years before needing to be replaced again.
Concrete pouring is the process of mixing and pouring the concrete into the frames or bases where the flooring will be. The frames and bases are usually measured and taped off prior to pouring so that concrete doesn’t overflow or pour into an area that is not meant to have concrete on it. Another important part of pouring is that the mixture needs to be precise. With a concrete mixture that’s too wet or dry, you might find premature cracking or deterioration. Therefore, it’s best to leave concrete pouring up to the professionals.
Concrete staining is the process of adding a pigment to the top surface layer of the concrete to alter its hue. This is often done for indoor concrete flooring to help it better blend in with the rest of the home’s interiors. By staining the concrete, you’re able to customize it and make it more fitting to your home’s comforts, rather than the traditional grey color it often bears. Staining your concrete doesn’t damage it nor does it compromise its integrity. In fact, staining your concrete can actually add value to your surface, rather than deduct from it.
Concrete stamping is the process of adding a design or pattern to your concrete to make it mimic or imitate another building material such as stone or brick. By stamping your concrete, you can easily give your concrete a new appearance that’s more durable and sturdy than what it’s counterparts might offer. Stamping concrete is done using a stencil in your desired shape or pattern and pressed into the concrete while wet, then allowed to dry in place. Once completed, the concrete will then bear similarities to other, more stylish building materials, but maintain the same durable properties as concrete.
Once your concrete has been either stained or stamped, or simply just poured into place, we then seal it off using an epoxy coating or a standard concrete sealant. Adding sealant to your concrete has proven to elongate its lifespan and allow it to combat exterior elements better than non-sealed concrete. Sealant is applied after the concrete has completely set and can prevent staining, scratching, and other potential damages that could end up costing you significant amounts of money to repair. We recommend to all of our clients who are considering concrete flooring of some sort to have their concrete sealed for better use.
