Thinking of giving your basement floor a facelift?

Yep, fall is now upon us and outdoor projects will cease over the colder months ahead. Time to turn our attention to interior updates and renos again!

Are you thinking of giving your basement floor a little facelift? In our current real estate market one of the home improvements with the best return on investment is actually a finished basement. After all, a cozy basement can serve as the heart of any home – one of the rooms where most families spend a ton of their time.

Remodels these days centre around the type of floor finishing you’re going to select for your basement. From luxury vinyl, tile and laminate, to carpet and engineered hardwood – such a variety of materials, hues, tones, and colours from which to choose!

But wait a minute, don’t discount decorative concrete as an option. It’s such a unique & versatile material!

Most people dismiss concrete because it sounds like something you’d only use in an outdoor setting – for a driveway, walkway or patio for example. But decorative concrete can make one of the most beautiful and long-lasting basement floors. With new resins and colour options, concrete now has a polished, lustrous finish that rivals any of the other options.

So if you’re considering a basement floor makeover, but haven’t yet made your material decision, get in touch with us here at Hardscapes. Call 403-547-5597 and we’ll provide you with all the details you need to know about concrete finishes and we’ll explain why it’s such an excellent option for any basement!

The look of marble without the expense!

Marble is a luxurious, clean and classy looking material, but it is very expensive. Creating a faux marble finish will take any floor to the next level. The most natural looking and durable marble-like option is to create the marble look on concrete. Your floors will have the look of highly polished marble.

There are a variety of methods than can be used on new and existing concrete floors to transform concrete into marble.

  1. Staining – concrete acid stains are ideal for creating natural-looking marbling effects because they react with the concrete surface to produce light and dark areas that stimulate the color variations of real stone.
  2. Metallic Epoxies – metallic epoxy floor coatings are like liquid marble for concrete because of their pearlescent qualities and reflective pigments and they are highly versatile allowing you to achieve an endless array of decorative effects.
  3. Burnishing – Burnishing can mimic the highlights and lowlights of marble by producing natural-looking color variations. It involves hand or machine troweling the surface over and over again in a swirling motion until the desired pattern and degree of color variation is achieved.
  4. Painting – Painting concrete floors to look like marble is similar to faux finishing of walls and offers more color options than concrete staining. The floor is first painted with the desired base color, and then one or more accent colors are applied by brush or sponge to create veining effects.

If you’re looking for a trusted concrete floor finisher, look no further! Hardscapes has been providing quality craftsmanship, service and customer satisfaction for over 24 years.
