If you're wondering what you can do to use your concrete floors as the finished flooring, look no further.
Below, I'll show you some highly decorative, polished, stained, and colored options I think you'll find very attractive.
I'm Mike, my company Day's Concrete Floors, Inc has been installing concrete flooring since the 80's.
More recently, and quite often now, we're being asked to stain, polish or stamp the interior floors.
Here's some reasons why:

Great looking interior floor, can be polished to a matte or high gloss finish. These floors can also be stained or dyed to add color. Requires less maintenance than most other flooring materials.
Most concrete can be stained. I stain more floors than any of these other types of floor finishes. There are many colors to choose from and every floor is unique.
Stamping is great if you're looking for a certain pattern. There's patterns for wood, cobble stone, slate, brick and many more. Multiple colors can be used to create a floor that looks very much like the "real" thing.
Old and worn concrete can be resurfaced to look like stamped concrete or made smooth and stained or polished. An overlay is a great choice for concrete that had carpet, tile or laminate removed and the concrete is cracked, pitted, and stained.
Epoxies make great interior floor finishes. There are many colors to choose from, they are very durable and easy to maintain. With the "metallic" additives now available, some wild looks can be achieved that are one of a kind floors.

It's interesting to see how easy a conveyor truck makes it to place the concrete right where we need it. Take a look and let me know what you think.
