Concrete Floor Finishes
There’s so many ways to finish your concrete flatwork now. Decorative concrete has become so popular because of its affordability, durability, and versatility. If you’re not sure how to finish concrete we’ve prepared this guide so you can see the different options available.
Wood Stamped Concrete
Wood patterned rubber stamps are used to press designs into the concrete surface creating a wood plank look and feel. This method is best for large exterior surfaces that must hold up well under a lot of foot traffic. Now we have newer methods for wood styles using a broom and trowel.
Broom Finish Concrete
Traditionally, contractors would use a broom to create a rough surface for walkways, patios, and pool decks so people would not slip and fall. Now, broom finishing has become more artistic and an unlimited variety of designs and patterns are possible. Using a broom and a trowel together can create even more realistic wood patterns than stamping techniques.
Stamped Concrete Patterns
You can get as creative as you like with stamping. Custom rubber stamps mean you can stamp any designs you’d like into your finished product. Your flooring’s intended use and location can guide your decision. The most popular design is wooden planks, but here’s a few other popular customer ideas to get you started:
Slate, sandstone, brick, tile, cracked earth, cobblestone, river stone, and limestone are all available to transform the look of your home or business without breaking the bank.
Stamped Concrete Colors
We offer a wide variety of colors to choose from. The most popular colors tend to be Earth tones: olive, grey, bronze, adobe, coffee, beige, etc.
Exposed Aggregate Concrete
Exposed aggregate is one of the oldest and simplest finishes available. It creates a beautiful appearance with small stones or pebbles revealed. A wide variety of styles are possible depending on the size and color of the aggregate material. Although some people love its appearance, this finish requires a little more effort for cleaning due to the small spaces between the stones.
Salt Finish Concrete
This is one of the simplest, most affordable types of decorative finishes. Salt grains are pressed into the slab surface using rollers and then washed away with water after the concrete has set. The salt leaves behind a dimpled appearance with a slightly rough, skid resistant floor.
You’ve probably seen this before at showrooms, big box retailers, and home improvement stores. This is actually a polished concrete finish. These types of businesses prefer a smooth finish for various reasons:
