Revealing Benefits And Tips Of Printed Concrete For Your Driveway

Home Business,Business,Home Repair
If you are looking for a unique floor finish with personality, you should check out printed concrete floors. This style of finishing is sometimes called cement stamping. This can be applied in different portions of your home such as the back porch, driveway, and the swimming pool or backyard area. It can actually be used in any part of your residence to add more pizazz to your interior or exterior decor.

When used as a home surface, it will not appear greyish like ordinary cement pavements. A tinting product is mixed in with the cement and you can have floors in any color imaginable such as blue, black, red, yellowish or beige. The tint on the surface will not fade because it is incorporated with the entire cement compound. Washing the floor will not make it fade either.

You can have various outlines applied to the cement. There are those who like rectangular, square or triangular patterns. Some prefer free-style and flowing designs while others like fan shaped contours. You can go with European styles that look like old roads. You can even create your own shapes that your contractor can apply to the surface.

Your contractor should apply a sealant to make the lustre on the surface last long. This application can be repeated every 3 years or so to bring back a shiny finish to it. Although the material is durable, you still need to seal it to prevent water seepage and future deterioration. This is especially helpful in bathroom, kitchen, outdoor, and pool area surfaces where there is more moisture.

For slippery parts of the house like swimming pool, bathroom, kitchen, and Jacuzzi areas, a non-slip finish would be ideal. This is an option you can take and should use to keep your family and guests safe from injury due to slipping. Make sure that your contractor mixes in an additive at the sealing process to achieve this non-slippery surface.

It is also going to be easy to maintain and clean this kind of surface. A hardener is added in the color and cement mixture that makes the material very durable. You should not have to reseal it within the next few years. It is also strong enough to take cleaning with a pressure washer, soap and water without being damaged.

It is important to locate a good contractor to apply this finish to your floors. Using unreliable workers to perform this job may lead to substandard workmanship. Your floors might start cracking a few months afterwards and you will have to pay more money to have the cracks filled and refinished. It is practical to use a slightly more costly service that uses high standard materials.

Printed concrete floors add beauty to something that is also durable and low maintenance. Cement is not easily damaged like expensive had wood floors. They are also safer to use than slippery tiles. Cleaning the surface will be easier than vacuuming carpet or polishing wooden planks. This kind of flooring can add value to your home aside from making it look more attractive.
