Polished Floor: Where to use it?

Concrete has long been a staple in the construction industry; driveways, sidewalks, and foundations are common uses for concrete.

New technologies and techniques, however, have greatly expanded the use of concrete into areas not usually considered in the past. One such area is the floor. Floors are a necessary part of every building, yet seldom noticed or given much attention. Concrete Designs can completely remove any doubt you may have about concrete flooring, whether it be for your home or business.

Home

Sprucing up the flooring in your home often becomes a costly process. Tile, linoleum, wood, and other typical floor coverings require constant maintenance and have to be replaced every few years. Polished concrete, on the other hand, can easily last 10 years or more with very little in the way of upkeep, maintaining its beautiful finish through the harshest of everyday living. The finish never needs wax or other coatings, making it more environmentally friendly, and there is a wide variety of colors and designs to choose from to make your floor uniquely yours. Finishes can range from satin to high gloss, or even a polished stone effect. The experts and designers at Concrete Designs will help you decide on the perfect polished concrete floor for your home.

Restaurants

More and more restaurants are choosing polished concrete for their kitchens and dining areas. Restaurant kitchens are held to high standards when it comes to cleanliness. The non-porous surface of polished concrete is the perfect solution, resisting spills of all kinds, slip resistant, and easy to clean. It also withstands the temperature extremes found in busy kitchens. In the dining area, the constant scraping of tables and chairs and high traffic patterns quickly dull or even ruin typical flooring. Not so with polished concrete.

Commercial Stores

Commercial stores have also discovered the joys of having a polished concrete floor in place. With the ease of installation and low maintenance requirements, polished concrete always give the appearance of being like-new even in the most heavily used areas such as aisles and check-out lanes. A nice shiny floor is much more inviting to customers than a dull, worn floor. The knowledgeable professionals at Concrete Designs will be happy to show you what a difference a polished concrete floor will make in the overall appearance of your store.
