Concrete Flooring

Concrete? Really? Well, we're not talking about the cold, gray
concrete that's out in your garage. Concrete is, of course, that
mixture of sand, water, and cement, but it can be tinted and
textured into whatever style you want. It can be made to be
smooth and seamless or have the look of a tiled floor - at much
less cost than tiles or natural stone. Another nice custom touch
is when pebbles or broken glass are added to the concrete for a
truly one-of-a-kind floor.

ADVANTAGES OF CONCRETE

- Inexpensive; cost effective replacement for natural stone

- Can be styled to look like aged brick, ceramic tiling, or even
marble floors at a fraction of the cost

- Extremely durable; easy to fix problems or damage

DISADVANTAGES OF CONCRETE

- Surface is porous and needs to be sealed on a regular basis

- Can be hard and cold underfoot

- Hard to stand on for long periods

- Noisy
