Does the quarantine have you noticing all the flaws in your house? Particularly how old and drab your concrete flooring is beginning to look.
As with any flooring, concrete floors chip and crack over time. Stains from everyday usage will also change the appearance of your floor, and its original slip-resistant coating may begin to lose its effectiveness as it ages.
Not only do these defects take away from the overall beauty of your flooring, but they can also increase your risk of trips, slips, and falls. Thankfully, this damage doesn’t have to be permanent.
Restoring vs replacing concrete
Replacing damaged concrete is an extremely expensive and time-consuming task.. Not to mention, removing old concrete and pouring a new floor is incredibly disruptive to your everyday home life.
On the other hand, concrete restoration is a much cheaper alternative that offers several options. Transform your older concrete into a newer, safer, and more colorful surface without disrupting your day-to-day life.
Dealing with drab but functional concrete
If your concrete floor is visually unappealing but otherwise still in good shape (no cracks or chips), a decorative surface coloration treatment is ideal for bringing back the original beauty that you initially fell in love with.
Dealing with damaged concrete
Concrete floors that have more than just aesthetic problems, like cracks and chips, will likely require resurfacing (a combination of coatings and overlays).
This form of restoration is applied to the pre-existing concrete, and many designs, textures, colors, and styles are available.
Slip-resistant surfaces and sealers are also good investments when it comes to restoring your damaged concrete floors. These finishing touches will make your flooring easier to clean and maintain, all the while protecting it for years to come.
