Beautiful Floors are Just a Stain Away

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ExteriorFlooringInteriorSurfacing

Concrete stains provide a simple, stylish and sensible flooring solution. With concrete already preexisting in most homes, exposing it and applying effects such as staining and saw-cutting makes concrete a viable flooring option. Turn your existing dull and gray concrete slabs into beautiful, richly colored spaces. Granicrete applies stains directly onto your existing concrete slab or onto its concrete overlays to create a smooth, stone or decorative texture. Great for interior and exterior spaces, stained concrete flooring offers numerous benefits and yields an excellent return on investment.

A distinctive finish

A unique look is created with each floor. The possibilities are limitless, as stains are available in a wide spectrum of colors and metallic tints. Choose neutral colors such as browns and grays, or go bold with vibrant blues, greens and reds. Mix colors to create a natural stone, marble, leather or wood effect. Saw cuts made on your existing slab can add decorative borders or designs.

Easy maintenance

Stained concrete floors are easy-to-maintain and provide resistance to moisture, stains, mold and bacteria. They are a great choice for those with allergies, as concrete floors won’t trap dirt, animal dander, dust mites or other allergens.

Built to last

Concrete floors provide excellent durability and resistance to abrasion. They withstand the elements including foot traffic, food and drink spills, etc. No other surface resists chipping, discoloring, warping and staining like a concrete floor does.

Eco-friendly

Stained concrete flooring is a sustainable choice. Enhance your existing concrete floor with stains rather than covering it up with other materials that will eventually need to be replaced. You’ll conserve materials and eliminate the need for their removal and disposal.

Prepping your floor

Removing your existing carpeting, tile or linoleum to expose the concrete beneath will require cleaning and maybe some repair work or patching. These imperfections can be covered by a thin Granicrete overlay, and then stained to create a warm, inviting new look.
