Variety of Appealing Designs
A world full of options is available to homeowners who choose to use decorative concrete. The look of your concrete features can be customized in just about any way you can imagine, so that your floors, walls, paths, and driveways don’t even look like concrete. Design Options include:
- Textured: smooth, grooved, patterned, stenciled, engraved
- Stamped: Mimics the look of stone, brick, slate, cobblestone, wood, fossils, shells, and more
- Colored: Comes in a wide range of tints, marbling, and stains
Today’s concrete solutions can do so much more for homeowners than you might realize. Decorative concrete boosts your home’s appeal in many ways, such as:
- The stunning design looks that make your driveway stand out
- Attractive paths that mimic stone at a cost-effective price
- Beautiful retaining walls that add charm to your landscaping
- Striking flooring for patios, porches, and fireplaces
Areas that get heavy foot traffic, such as sidewalks and flooring, tend to get worn down quickly. One of the benefits of choosing decorative concrete for your indoor and outdoor areas is that it doesn’t easily scratch, scuff, or chip. It also withstands heavy weights without buckling, so it lasts longer than other materials. Three benefits include:
- Move heavy furniture without worries
- Pets won’t do damage to it with their nails
- It’s great for driveways and parking areas
Easy to Maintain
As you make home improvements, it’s smart to install features that make home care easier. Decorative concrete is great for this, as it requires little maintenance, making it super easy to maintain. Three benefits include:
- Mop concrete flooring to remove dust and dirt.
- Wax indoor concrete floors once a year.
- Seal outdoor concrete surfaces every four to five years.
Going Green: Ecologically Sound
When it comes to green home improvements, decorative concrete flooring is among the best options available. This is because existing concrete subfloors in a home can be used easily to create your flooring, without removing old materials that end up in a landfill. You don’t have to add new materials either, so there’s no need to buy and use fresh hardwood or carpet. Better Air Quality for those with allergies, concrete offers an appealing home solution because it resists the elements that drive up allergic responses.
- Dust, dirt, and pollen can’t seep into the nonporous surface of the concrete.
- Allergens can be easily swept away and eliminated.
- Air quality remains cleaner and more pleasant for you and your family.
Keeps it Cool
If you live in an area that endures hot, sweltering summers, then your home improvement plans should include ways to keep your home cool without running the air conditioning at full blast.
- Concrete stays cool to the touch even when exposed to heat.
- Concrete surfaces keep homes cooler in summer weather.
- The additional cooling aspect can reduce A/C bills.
