Concrete Flooring Lincoln

Are you intrigued by concrete floors? Have you identified that this is the latest ‘buzz’ word in stone floor restoration?

It is possible that you have seen a concrete floor that you may have not even been able to tell was made of concrete. No longer is this type of flooring linked solely to commercial premises and some of the most incredible house designs now incorporate this dynamic material.

There are likely to be some questions that you contemplate before laying a concrete floor and some of these concerns are outlined below:

Will my concrete floor be cold underfoot?

It is a fact that stone flooring of any type can be cold to walk on barefooted. Concrete, however, is no worse than other natural stone or ceramic tile alternatives. If this is a real concern you are able to fit underfloor heating as concrete has a great ability to store and radiate heat.

Will a concrete floor cost the earth?

The only way to answer this question is by contemplating the other comparable floor types such as natural stone or ceramic tile. The direct cost comparison leaves you aware that concrete is an economic alternative and this is further boosted by its durability and longevity.

How am I best to care for my concrete flooring?

No floor is maintenance free and regular sweeping and mopping will keep concrete floors looking at their best for longer. The level and methods of care depend on the usage of the floor as a domestic floor will have much less foot traffic than a commercial property. Make sure that the floor is appropriately sealed and this will ease the routine care and maintenance.

Another exceptional element of this product is that it can be completely restored. Techniques can be employed to completely alter the look and appearance of the floor. Call today on 0845 4599941 to find out more.

All required information will be collected at the point of survey. Our TOP TIP: if the area for restoration is extremely large ensure that all damaged points are noted.

Don’t leave it too long to complete the work: this falls in line seamlessly from the above point. Superficial damage, if left, can become more serious. In the early stages, these areas can be considered as cosmetic issues and can be easily repaired.

Familiarise yourself with the general process: it is important that each and every one of our clients feel well-informed when it comes to restoring stone. This does not mean that we will blind them with science, but it means that they are furnished with detail that provides them with the ability to make well-informed and educated decisions when selecting stone finishes and other elements of the process.

Make sure that you plan for routine cleaning: as once your concrete floor is restored it will need routine maintenance. Although the cleaning of this floor type is straightforward, it should be regularly planned. Abrasive materials will then be filtered away, making sure it is less likely that they can damage your newly restored floor.
