Benefits Of Staining Concrete
Most concrete contractors today are incorporating stained concrete flooring due to its increase in popularity in both commercial and residential settings. It offers a number of benefits including everything from low maintenance to durability to cost savings, which makes it the perfect choice for virtually any renovation project. In general, this innovative type of flooring is fast becoming popular with many homeowners these days since it provides a unique, aesthetic appeal by integrating countless decorative applications and designs.
Here are just some of the key benefits of using acid-stained concrete flooring, whether it’s for your home or business.
Uniquely designed concrete-stained flooring has the ability to capture the high-profile look of much more pricey flooring options such as flagstone, granite, slate, sandstone, travertine, and even marble. You can achieve the same look as any one of these more luxurious materials for a mere fraction of the cost. Even applying just one color to a basic concrete floor will make them stand out in terms of both elegance and style.
Long-Lasting Durability and Resilience
No matter where it’s installed, one of the best features about concrete-stained flooring is its high resistance to everyday wear and tear as well as to ultraviolet light, discoloration, and fading. In fact, concrete flooring in general offers incredible strength, durability, and will never flake, buckle, or warp like many other types of flooring. Different from painting a concrete floor, staining them prevents peeling and/or chipping as well.
Because concrete is a naturally energy efficient material, it’s often manufactured from recycled products as a highly-sustainable product for building new designs. Other eco-friendly benefits include the fact that they almost never need replacement and offer little to no construction waste, unlike many other flooring products.
Increased Energy Savings
Concrete flooring has the capacity to store, absorb, and gradually release both coolness and heat. As a result, exposed concrete-stained flooring has the ability to significantly reduce the workload of HVAC equipment by controlling temperature swings indoors even while the temperature outside changes considerably.
Naturally Water Resistant
Acid-stained concrete flooring allows some moisture to seep into the floor without causing any harm or negative effects to the floor itself. Therefore, these types of floors won’t rot, warp, fade, or discolor like the way so many other kinds of floors result in once they’re exposed to even minimal amounts of moisture.
Enhances Better Indoor Air Quality
Beautiful concrete-stained flooring can encourage better indoor air quality by eliminating most or all issues with mold or mildew growth. Some other ways concrete floors promote better air quality include:
• Naturally repels dust mites
• Does not require harsh chemicals to be cleaned
• Moisture easily evaporates from the surface
• Installs with sealers that contain little to no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds)
Compared to many other kinds of floors, concrete-stained flooring requires virtually little to no maintenance. They are easily swept or vacuumed and mopped as needed in order to maintain their visual appeal. High traffic areas may occasionally need some re-polishing in order to maintain their overall look and shine.
Stylish, elegant, highly-decorative stained concrete flooring comes in a variety of attractive colors and rich stains in order to create the special effects and look you desire.
