A while back, I posted a blog introducing you to polished concrete. Now I'd like to tell you how polished concrete floors benefit both residential and commercial customers. You probably haven't realized that most floors that you walk on are actually concrete. That shiny marble floor in the hotel lobby on your last vacation was most likely polished concrete, not actually marble. Same goes for the tile floor in your gym's locker room, the terrazzo floor at your favorite Italian restaurant and even the beautiful granite floor in your mother's new kitchen. Business owners and homeowners alike are realizing the benefits of polished concrete as opposed to marble or granite floors.
Three main benefits of polished concrete versus other flooring options that convince business owners and homeowners to install it are lower cost, ease of maintenance and aesthetics. Check out this comparison chart I found over at the ultimate concrete informational website, ConcreteNetwork.com. This comparison chart shows how polished concrete fares among the more conventional flooring options. You may be shocked at how concrete flooring stacks up against the competition!
Additionally, I want to share a video about design options for polished concrete floors as well as a video about what types of flooring is best for polished concrete. Again, these videos are from ConcreteNetwork.com.
Stay tuned for my next post in the Polished Concrete series...
