Concrete flooring finishing

Home » Decoration Materials » Concrete floor »

In additional to the more traditional decorative finishes for concrete floors, advances in materials and finishing techniques have resulted in new cutting-edge looks. Two of the trendiest finishes today are polishing and metallic epoxy coatings. Concrete polishing results in a floor with a smooth, high-luster finish that resembles polished stone, yet never requires waxing. Metallic epoxies contain real metallic powders or special reflective pigments to give concrete floors the look of copper, silver, aged bronze, nickel, and other shimmery patinas. They are especially popular in settings where a modern, upscale look is desired.

Many floor finishes — including staining, dyeing, polishing and decorative coatings — can be applied to existing concrete as well as new concrete. This gives you the flexibility to expose concrete floor slabs hidden by other floor coverings, such as carpet or vinyl tile, or dress up bare concrete floors in basements and rec rooms.

There are even special decorative coatings for garage floors that not only help to protect the floor from grease, oil stains and tire marks, but also impart color and texture. These heavy-duty epoxy-based systems are available in many color choices and can be enhanced by decorative quartz or color chips.

In addition to their decorative merits, all concrete floor finishes are easy to maintain when applied to properly prepared floor surfaces. They can endure heavy foot traffic, they are stain and moisture resistant, and they won’t harbor mold, mildew, allergens, or dust mites.
