A garage floor coating is one of the most economical and aesthetically pleasing ways to enhance a plain gray concrete garage floor. The use of these heavy-duty epoxy-based systems not only upgrade the look of the floor, they also increase resiliency to stains and tire marks and hide minor imperfections. Epoxy has many colors available for you to choose from for the base coating, which can be further enhanced by decorative quartz or paint chips. Garage floor coatings give you a wide array of design options.

Stamped concrete can be laid in a variety of patterns, which is why it has become increasingly more popular. Stamped concrete can be designed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, cobblestone and other patterns. These natural stone looks are costly and require more upkeep than patterned or stamped concrete, therefore making stamped concrete much more economical and still capable of achieving a desired look.

Some people get concerned about having concrete as a flooring option in the basement because they think it will be cold and damp when walking on it. However, this is rarely true in properly constructed newer homes because they are better insulated than older homes and today’s building codes typically require installation of a vapor barrier under the slab to block moisture migration. Because of this, there is a growing trend in decorative concrete interior floors, particularly in upscale homes.
To keep concrete floors warmer underfoot in winter, homeowners can install in-floor radiant heat before the slab is poured. Basements are one of the most popular areas to install these systems, which circulate heated water through polyethylene tubing. Some systems can also be retrofit into existing basements by covering the tubing with a self-leveling overlay.

One common reason for concrete damage is from a faulty design. Design faults can create many types of concrete damage. One type of design fault that is somewhat common is positioning em-bedded
metal such as electrical conduits or outlet boxes too near the exterior surfaces of concrete structures. Cracks form in the concrete over and around such metal features and allow
accelerated freeze-thaw deterioration to occur. Bases of handrails or guardrails are placed too near the exterior corners of walls, walkways, and parapets with similar results. These bases or intrusions into the concrete expand and contract with temperature changes at a rate different from the concrete causing cracks.

Cleaning concrete periodically will extend its service life and enhance its beauty. It can be difficult to tell when concrete is in need of cleaning because the dirt and grime can build up so slowly. However, once the process is done, the results of freshly cleaned concrete are very noticeable.
There are multiple ways to clean concrete depending on the type of surface, such as exterior slabs, floors or countertops. Each requires a different procedure to avoid damaging the surfaces.
