Concrete flooring brings to mind a dull, gray surface. New techniques, however, have been created to easily modify this stereotype. Concrete flooring can be decorated in a variety of ways, many of which provide an extra layer of protection to your concrete surface. To make your garage floor unique, consider using one of the following services to add color to your space.

Epoxy Finishes

Epoxy finishes are used for both decorative and protective purposes. The use of an epoxy finish can completely customize your flooring, as well as add an extra layer of protection to your concrete. Epoxy finishes can create a slip resistant surface, which can be useful in many ways. This can be extremely valuable in increasing the safety of your garage, for both you and your family. Epoxy finishes are also useful for improving slip resistance in restaurants or stores.

Concrete Dyes

Concrete dyes are specific types of paints that adhere to concrete surfaces. Like epoxy finishes, not only can these be used to change the color of your concrete, but it can also add a layer of protection to the surface. The unique nature of concrete requires the use of particular substances to create a long-lasting, attractive effect.

Acid Staining

Acid staining is a process that uses chemicals to change the appearance of your concrete flooring. It creates a chemical reaction that permanently changes the surface of your garage floor. Acid staining can be used to create a multitude of visual effects including marble, aged stone, an earthy appearance, and more. Because acid staining is a chemical process, it produces a permanent coloring that won’t fade, chip, or discolor over time.

Your garage floor doesn’t have to remain a monotonous, gray color. The durability of concrete can be combined with decorative techniques to create the ideal flooring for your space. Whatever method you choose to use, we can create a unique appearance for your concrete flooring. These methods can be used for concrete surfaces outside your garage, as well.
