Concrete has long been a favorite for driveways and walkways, but many people underestimate its potential inside the home. Concrete flooring in the home offers unparalleled strength and durability. With a wide range of finishing options available, it can also be eye-catching. Here are some top reasons to have concrete floors in your home.
Strength & Durability
This construction material withstands damage from heavy machines in warehouses and also adds protection to the home. Concrete flooring doesn’t crack, dent and it doesn’t get scratched. It’s also strong enough to resist damage from fire and moisture, stains and odors. Concrete flooring can last a lifetime, requiring regular cleaning and occasional resealing and/or waxing.
Concrete flooring provides an endless opportunity for style and beauty to your household’s interior. Today’s advanced technology allows concrete to resemble the appearance of brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, and even wood patterns. There are many finishing options for homeowners, including painting, staining, and etching. Visitors will be constantly complimenting your taste!
You can change your concrete floor if you get tired of it. Say 5 or 10 years down the line, you decide that you no longer like the look or performance of your concrete floor, then you can have it refinished to achieve a different effect.
Generally, concrete can cost a lot less than other construction materials. However, having it installed on multiple levels can raise the price, due to structural modifications needed to support its weight.
Homeowners concerned with protecting your floors from pet damage—scratches and scuffs, odors and stains— need not worry. Concrete is impervious to the wear and tear caused by cats and dogs. Properly sealed concrete can’t be ruined by a pet. It’s easy to clean up any pet accidents. Simply using a mop and a bucket of soapy water will clean your concrete floor.
