Concrete is best known as a utilitarian medium for construction. Decorative concrete takes concrete to a new level – it aesthetically enhances a structure, while maintaining its primary function as an integral part of a building, such as a floor or wall.
The transformation of concrete into decorative concrete is achieved through the use of a variety of methods, as well as various materials that may be applied during the pouring process or after the concrete is cured.
Decorative concrete is a superior alternative to other types of flooring:
- VCT and Vinyl Flooring: requires constant maintenance (strip, wax and buff)
- Epoxy and Paints: problematic in high moisture areas (can chip or peel off)
- Stain and Seal: not durable and subject to wear patterns; sealer needs to be reapplied periodically
- Ceramic tile: more expensive than polished concrete; grout cleaning is a constant issue
At ModernCrete, we specialize in diamond polished concrete. We also do concrete overlays, in addition to a wide selection of stains and seals, dyes, and coatings, depending on the look that you want to achieve.
