Specialty Concrete Flooring

Specialty Concrete Flooring

Your Concrete is our Canvas…

When you want more than just a protected, durable, easy to maintain floor, Customcrete is here to help. We can include that uniqueness you desire delivering a specialty concrete flooring solution. The most popular application for creating a unique look is staining, often called colored concrete. By combining colors and application techniques, Customcrete can create a unique specialty concrete flooring  that cannot be achieved with other flooring options. The results are limited only by the creativity of those involved. The result is a custom  specialty concrete flooring solution unique for your business.

Because of concrete’s porous qualities and neutral tone, it is the perfect canvas for topically applied color. Using acid-based chemical stains, it is possible to achieve rich, earth-toned color schemes resembling natural stone, marble, wood, and even leather, giving a completely custom look to your specialty concrete flooring surfaces.

Most acid stains are a mixture of water, hydrochloric acid, and acid-soluble metallic salts. They work by penetrating the surface and reacting chemically with the hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide) in the concrete. The acid in the stain lightly etches the surface, allowing the metallic salts to penetrate more easily. Once the stain reacts, it becomes a permanent part of the specialty concrete flooring and won’t fade, chip off, or peel away. Like stains for wood, acid-based stains are translucent and the color they produce will vary depending on the color and condition of the substrate they are applied to. Each concrete slab will accept the stain in varying degrees of intensity, creating natural color variations that bring character and distinction to each project. What acid stains don’t offer is a broad color selection. You’ll find them in a limited array of earth tones, such as tans, browns, terra cottas, and soft blue-greens. Water-based penetrating stains and water- and solvent-based concrete dyes are Greatly expanding the artist’s palette with colors ranging from soft pastels to vivid reds, oranges, yellows and purples.

You also have unlimited possibilites with epoxy systems. Custom colors can be created with your business or school colors and we can also inpregnate this epoxy system with your logo as well resulting in a custom specialty concrete flooring for your business or establishment.
