Decorative concrete is made from different types of concrete. Various methods are used to achieve the color and texture that is desired. The two most common types of stains are acid and water based stains. Acid stains react with the concrete and produce an opaque color or effect. Water based stains bond to the surface of the concrete. Epoxy and acrylic binders are another type of specialized stain. Several different finishes are available for each type of stain.
Benefits of Decorative Concrete
Decorative concrete is a great way to create unique designs. Adding a touch of color to an otherwise boring or worn concrete surface can create a beautiful result. It is a great choice for interior applications and exterior applications. You can even apply a textured or patterned finish to a previously concreted surface. Depending on the desired effect, the type of design may vary. You may also want to add a little bit of thermal mass to your building, as it will lower energy bills.
Decorative concrete is an excellent choice for areas with high traffic. It is easy to maintain and does not scratch or chip easily. It is also very durable and can withstand heavy weights without buckling. Because of these benefits, decorative concrete is the perfect choice for parking areas, driveways, and other exterior areas. It is also extremely versatile and is suitable for any environment. It is also low-maintenance and requires no special maintenance.
