Decorative concrete comes in a variety of styles like acid stained, knockdown, stamped overlay, etc. Therefore, you don’t have to settle down for a single pattern. The aim of this concrete is to give an ordinary pavement a complete makeover, transforming it into a new space without having to replace it.
While there many benefits of decorative concrete, here’s a look at a few key ones:
Decorative concretes can be applied to a new or an existing slab of concrete. It offers design flexibility that is not possible with any other floor finishes. You can choose from the following styles as per your needs:
Acid-stained: This concrete is a mixture of water, hydrochloric acid and acid-soluble metallic salt. Once applied, it leaves behind patches of acid that penetrate permanently inside your concrete. It does not fade away or peel off.
Stamped: This concrete is textured to resemble bricks, stones, tiles, etc. It is pushed into the concrete and removed later, to leave behind a stamp pattern.
Polished: This type of concrete is everlasting. If your existing concrete has faded, get it varnished with high-gloss polish and never bother about the finishing again.
Due to advances in concrete mixing and setting, contractors can create any color or texture that you want for your office. Contact our expert contractors to help you select the pattern ideally suited to your needs.

Decorative concrete may look fancy, but its price is not. Affordability is one of the major benefits of decorative concrete. Also, once installed, it does not require frequent replacement or repair, which in turn saves you money. It also does not need any additional floor covering further easing your expenses.

It’s Low Maintenance
Decorative concrete requires very little maintenance. In order to clean it, all you need is a little water and soap. The other part of its maintenance requires waxing and sealing it every 3 months. This can be easily done by booking a maintenance check with a pavement expert.
Even if your decorative concrete is demolished, it doesn’t need to be sent to a landfill. There is a process of recycling which involves grinding and breaking down of its materials for reuse in the future. These recycled materials can be used for other commercial purposes. The smaller pieces can be used for residential construction whereas the bigger pieces can be used to combat the erosion of shores.
