Is Temperature a Concern When Considering Concrete?

Aren’t you glad you don’t have to know the answer to that question? Your local Concrete Craft franchisee knows everything about concrete and cold weather and the best time for installation in your area. So, if you’re looking to enhance your home with stained, stamped and resurfaced decorative concrete, don’t concern yourself with the temperature outside, just call the experts!

If you’re shoveling snow in the Northeast, you may not believe this is the optimum time to call ESPJ Construction about upgrading your interior concrete floors or outside walkways and patios. Now, in the cold of winter, is the perfect time to set in motion the plan to transform your indoor and outdoor concrete living spaces with custom decorative concrete so you are ready for all those summer parties and entertaining.

Interior floors

Interior floor concrete overlays and stained concrete like this basement-turned-man cave can actually be done year round. The gorgeous concrete stain transforms the basement into a stylish entertainment area that will give years of enjoyment. The non-porous, continuous surface resists stains and spills and is guaranteed against chipping or peeling so you can let the games begin!

Wood planks are popular stamped concrete patterns for indoor floors like family rooms and kitchens where lots of activity happens. You get the beauty of hardwood floors but with exceptional durability and easy care you don’t get with real hardwood. A quick sweep and occasional wet mop is all it takes to keep the floor looking like new since the tough sealer resists scuffs and scratches so common to wood floors.

Exterior floors

Talking with ESPJ Construction now while it’s cold outside will ensure you’re first in line when it’s warm enough weather for outside concrete work.  If you wait for the warmer weather, everyone else will be calling too, and summer may be long gone before you finally get your patio, driveway, walkways or pool deck done. Calling now gives plenty of time to carefully consider all your options and get really creative with colors and designs, such as this amazing stamped concrete, custom-colored compass medallion to customize a patio or driveway.

So don’t go into home improvement hibernation when the weather gets cold. Think warm thoughts and plan for that new patio design in flagstone, cobblestone, tile or brick so you’ll be first up for transforming your space with stained, stamped and resurfaced decorative concrete.  Or, you may be pleasantly surprised to discover that you don’t have to wait for warmer temperatures to transform your basement or other interior floors into functional living space with beautifully stained floors.
