Concrete is well known as a building material for its:
- Energy efficiency
- Fire resistance
- Low maintenance
But when it comes to concrete’s appearance, most minds conjure up a basic, dreary gray. Why? Well, because that’s the color it’s been for as long as we can remember. Boring, right?
Wrong! The truth of the matter is concrete can be infused with color and polished to create a unique and beautiful surface.
Xtreme Engineered Floor Systems can take your dull concrete flooring from blah to beautiful. Achieving an attractive colored concrete flooring surface is as simple as choosing the color or colors (go ahead, get creative) and sheen level(s) you desire and letting Xtreme’s flooring experts go to work.
The process is simple. Along with the colored tints, dyes, and stains, a complete treatment of concrete sealer, densifier, and hardener is applied to the surface. As a result, your colored concrete flooring is abrasion, impact, and slip resistant and meets all ADA and OSHA standards. When the grinding, polishing and buffing process is complete, the finish on your newly colored concrete flooring will last a very long time with no need to re-polish.
Contrary to what you might have heard, there is no need to apply surface coatings such as waxes, epoxy, or polyurethane. And maintenance is Xtremely easy – just sweep or dry mop to remove the dust and damp mop. If you prefer to use a scrubbing machine, set it to slow and use soft rather than abrasive pads. That’s all there is to it, and your colored and polished concrete flooring will be shiny and beautiful once again.
When you consider all the benefits of concrete flooring, it’s easy to see why it’s becoming more popular. When you think about the creative options available with colors, tints, dyes, stains, and polishes, you have to wonder, why not?
