If you are having a new concrete floor installed in your Albany home or business, be sure to stay in close communication with your concrete floor contractor throughout the entire process. In addition to going over the general scope of the project, you also need to discuss your material options with your contractor before the project can actually begin.
Concrete Floor Coating Options
After you’ve decided what kind of decorative concrete products to use for your flooring, you may think that the hard work is done. While you do have one major decision out of the way, there is still another one you need to make – what kind of coating will you choose? Choosing the right coating option with your concrete floor contractor is very important because it will affect not only the appearance of your flooring but also its durability, maintenance, and longevity.
One of the simplest options for concrete floor coatings is epoxy. Epoxy coatings are a great way to maximize the durability of your concrete flooring while also making it very easy to clean and maintain. You can go with a clear epoxy coating if you want to highlight the appearance of your concrete flooring, or you can add color to further customize your floors. Choose from solid color, multicolor, and even metallic color additives from Elite Crete Systems.
Another option you should discuss with your concrete floor contractor is microtoppings. Microtoppings can be used to apply color or texture to a concrete surface, and they can give your concrete floor slip resistance. Microtoppings are generally applied in very thin layers using a squeegee, trowel, or brush, and they can be combined in multiple layers to achieve a variety of different effects.
