Concrete is one of the most popular building materials due to its strength and low maintenance but that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for it looking drab and boring. Adding a decorative coating to your concrete can make the world of difference, allowing to go from drab to fab. Read on to find out more.
A decorative concrete coating is a coating that is applied to concrete in order to improve its appearance and can be applied to existing or new concrete. There are different types of decorative coatings, depending on the look that you’d like to achieve. One of the most common and popular is stencilled concrete. This is where a stencil is laid, the coating is then sprayed on top and the stencil is removed in order to reveal an attractive pattern that mimics the look of paving or brickwork. Another coating option is to use a polyurethane or epoxy coating in order to spruce up the look of your existing concrete. Yet another option is a stain or tint that is applied to the surface of the concrete, such as an acid stain. These allow you to change the colour of the concrete and can make it resemble natural materials such as leather or stone.
No matter which coating you choose, they are available in different colours and even different patterns so that you can choose the one that most suits your needs and personal taste. Some even come in different textures.
Decorative concrete coatings need to be applied by a professional that is fully qualified and experienced. This will ensure that you get the best result. Always ask what coating process they are using, what guarantee it comes with and how long you will need to wait before you can use the concrete again. As with any other project, get a quote before any work begins.
