How to work with Chemical or Reactive Concrete Stains

For high-quality flooring that looks great without costing a fortune, consider stained concrete as an option. Polished concrete flooring is highly durable, and concrete stains can give your flooring a custom appearance that will enhance the appearance of your entire house. If you are interested in stained concrete, hire an experienced concrete contractor who works with high-quality materials like those offered by Duraamen or if you are DIY enthusiast, you can watch the installation videos here.

Benefits of Stained Concrete

The main benefit of stained concrete flooring is its durability. Polished concrete flooring is incredibly resistant to normal wear and tear – when properly installed, a concrete floor could last for 100 years or more. Stained concrete also offers excellent energy savings because it has high thermal mass – this means that the concrete is able to absorb, store, and release both heat and coolness to help moderate temperature changes indoors. Another important benefit of stained concrete is that it is very easy to maintain – all you have to do is mop the floor with soapy water once a week to keep it in good condition. Finally, stained concrete offers a unique level of elegance and beauty to which other flooring materials simply cannot compare.

Tips for Using Chemical/Reactive Concrete Stains

Installing stained concrete flooring is no simple task, especially if you don’t have experience in the industry. To make sure that your flooring looks great and lasts a lifetime, consider hiring a concrete contractor who works with top-quality products like those from Duraamen.
