Time to give your basement floor a fresh, new look?

One of the home improvements that offers an impressive return on investment is a finished basement. Transforming your basement into a cozy haven can turn it into the heart of your home, a space where families spend a significant amount of their time.

When it comes to basement remodels, the focus often revolves around choosing the right floor finishing. With an array of options such as luxury vinyl, tile, laminate, carpet, and engineered hardwood, the choices seem endless in terms of materials, hues, tones, and colours. However, there’s a unique and versatile option that often gets overlooked – decorative concrete.

While many associate concrete with outdoor applications like driveways and patios, decorative concrete has emerged as a game-changer for basement floors. Thanks to advancements in resins and color options, concrete now boasts a polished, lustrous finish that can rival any other flooring option.

Can Water Damaged Concrete Be Repaired

Yes it can!

It’s called water degradation and can be caused by any number of things. Fire, aggregate expansion, bacterial corrosion, calcium leaching and many others.

Many basement floors get damaged by the high water tables and backed up sewers.

Untreated sewer water can produce hydrogen sulfide, which is then oxidized by aerobic bacteria present on the concrete surface above the water level. The sulfuric acid dissolves the carbonates in the cured cement and causes strength loss, as well as producing sulfates that can be destructive to the concrete.

Hardscapes Inc. has a solution to this problem. A clean up of the concrete floor and then sealing the concrete with a great decorative coating can preserve and update your damaged basement floor. This is a great alternative to replacing rugs and hardwoods.
