Decorative Surfaces

Other Decorative Surfaces

We refinish concrete, vinyl, Formica and many other worn surfaces with durable decorative alternatives. Like heat resistant countertop epoxy or stain and seal concrete. 

Applying acid stain to a concrete floor can add dramatic marbling and give a depth of color not available in any other type of floor,  as the convenience of having resurfaced epoxy countertops with custom stone looks and heat resistant finish. 
Sustainability
Concrete floors are a sustainable option if you use an existing concrete slab, avoiding the consumption of new materials. And they need not be relegated to basements or garages. Once the concrete is sanded down and polished or sealed, it looks perfectly refined in a traditional kitchen or living room, especially when layered with Oriental rugs and pretty furnishings and fixtures.


Longevity

A floor that has been polished and maintained can be expected to last a hundred years or more. In this home, let’s appreciate how an aged and cracked concrete floor was not hidden under new tiles or carpet. Instead, it is celebrated for the history it holds and has been put on display along with other architecturally salvaged materials.

Economical

The cost of concrete floors is very low compared to other flooring options. The concrete’s tonal differences, subtle cracks, and aggregates take on a stone-like, natural feel. More elaborate finishes like staining concrete floors have been a popular option for years because the outcome is determined by the homeowner’s imagination – different colors and application techniques combine to create a finish that’s unique to the home, with subtle variations across the floor.
Versatility


For exterior applications, silicone-based penetrating sealers can be used to avoid the wet look. Concrete can be an economical and crafty choice in lieu of salvaged wood flooring. Stamping wet concrete with plank-like wood-grain imprints creates a lovely effect.
Easy care

The only maintenance required of concrete floors is weekly mopping with soapy water. I recommend installing a baseboard along with the concrete floor as well, even though you think you may not need it. Just imagine what a dirty mop would leave behind in the crevice where the floor meets the wall if there were no baseboard. And it will make your choice look finished and intentional.
