Spotting some issues on outdoor concrete surfaces is not something extraordinary since there are several elements outdoors that could cause damage. However, finding damage indoors is like discovering a safety hazard in a supposedly safe environment. You can use high-end flooring materials to cover them up but imagine how much that would affect your finances. If you want something affordable but still very much reliable, then decorative concrete is the one for you.
Decorative concrete includes resurfacing, refinishing, and repair options that you can use on living room, kitchen, bedroom, and other indoor floors. Coatings and overlays can cover up ugly stains, repair minor cracks and dents, and transform plain gray concrete into something absolutely stunning. All at a friendly price.
Decorative Concrete Solutions for Interior Floors
It is highly recommended to inspect your concrete floors when you can. Finding damage in its early stages gives you the opportunity to restore your concrete before the damage gets worse. If you are transitioning from a carpeted, tile, or wooden flooring, decorative concrete is also an ideal solution to enhance and improve the concrete foundation underneath. Here are some of the most popular options for interior floors:
- Stained Concrete – Concrete stains are effective in disguising stains and the natural discoloration process of concrete. Stains come in acid and water-based form. Acid stains come in earthy tones and dry to a semi-translucent look. It contains metallic salts that induce a chemical reaction when it comes in contact with concrete, specifically with its lime and mineral content. The results are varying tones of the color that you chose, similar to that of stone or leather. Water-based stains, on the other hand, come in a wider range of colors, from pastels to metallics. It does not create special effects and, instead, dries to a uniform color that is consistent on all floor areas.
- Epoxy Flooring – Epoxy is highly recommended for garage floors but it can also be used on basement concrete. It is a two-part material that dries to a very hard and seamless surface, resistant to most types of damage.
- Polyurea Polyaspartic Coating – This coating is similar to epoxy. It is also a two-part material that is resistant to most types of damage. A few key differences include its 1-day installation feature. It can be installed, dried, and used all in the same day, making it a popular option among commercial space owners.
