The Pros of Concrete Flooring
If you are one of those people who think of concrete simply as a utilitarian surface material suitable only for garages, sidewalks, and driveways, its many virtues as a flooring material may surprise you. Here are just some of the many benefits of concrete flooring:
Concrete is an extremely resilient and tough material and when used for flooring it is capable of withstanding pressure from very heavy equipment including vehicles such as cars, forklifts, and trucks as well as stacked crates. For this reason, it is highly popular for use as a flooring material in hard-working areas such as commercial warehouses and garages.
A minimum amount of maintenance is required to keep a concrete floor looking good. All it needs is to be kept clean and a sealant or wax to be applied every six to nine months, depending on the amount of traffic, to maintain a protective layer on the surface.
Should you choose, you can install any floor surface over concrete flooring in the future as long as it is free from any defects such as bumps or holes. Some floor coverings may require an interim underlayment.
If there is an existing concrete subfloor beneath another floor covering in on-grade and below-grade locations, all it takes is to uninstall the covering to reveal the concrete surface. Because no new material has been produced there is no depletion of resources and no carbon footprint.
A properly installed, sealed and maintained concrete floor will last indefinitely under normal conditions. Even under high traffic conditions in commercial applications, concrete flooring can survive for many decades.
When thinking of concrete flooring the images that come to mind are those of ugly, gray-colored, utilitarian surfaces with rough, bumpy textures. However, modern advances in mixing and setting technologies have given designers the ability to achieve an amazing and almost endless variety of texture and color effects with this versatile material.
Coloration can be mixed directly into the concrete material before the slab is laid. For existing floors, the surface can be acid-stained by using an appropriate staining or dyeing agent, or waterproof latex paint can be painted over the surface.
Texture can be perfectly smooth at the installation stage or decorative textured patterns can be added by molding it into the surface before the concrete has set. Another option is to polish the surface to a smooth sheen or create a faux tile effect with etching.
