Different Types of Concrete Flooring
Choosing the right concrete flooring for your facility is a big task. Concrete has long been the preferred flooring for everything from retail establishments and warehouses to garages and showrooms. There are good reasons for this: Concrete is durable, reliable, and low-maintenance. At Blackrock Industrial, we offer a variety of concrete flooring options to meet your needs. Here is what you need to know before making your decision.
Fast, easy, and reliable: Polished concrete offers just about everything when it comes to flooring. Concrete is naturally durable, but polishing it adds a few more benefits that might surprise you. When experienced contractors with the right equipment grind concrete, they can create glassy polished concrete floors that can withstand just about anything you throw at it. Polished concrete floors are among the hardest and strongest floors, and they resist spills and contamination. There is no additional layer to peel or lift, and moisture and vapor will not affect them. At Blackrock Industrial, we use diamond grinders to polish concrete to a beautiful finish that is easy to clean, maintenance-free, and built to last.
Concrete is a low-cost flooring material, but in its natural form, it tends to be plain. By staining it, we can create an incredible array of looks and designs to add beauty and style to both residential and commercial properties. We can use stains to create a variegated, mottled, or monochromatic look. Because the stain penetrates deep inside the concrete, the color will remain true and rich and will not fade, chip, or flake. After we stain your floors, we will apply a hard-wearing seal to protect them and add shine and durability. Although concrete floors are low-maintenance, periodic waxing will keep your interior floors looking as bright and beautiful as the first day they were stained. Exterior floors may need periodic resealing.
Terrazzo floors are a classic. Terrazzo-style concrete finishes are durable and sustainable like other concrete floors, but the terrazzo finish allows for numerous aesthetic designs and finishes. Whether your style tends to be more simple or complex, terrazzo offers endless customization options to satisfy any whim. Terrazzo offers all the benefits of concrete with long-lasting, low-maintenance lifespans and flexible finishes, and reduced turnaround time. At Blackrock Industrial flooring contractor in Miami, our skilled artisans can bring your flooring vision to life using terrazzo style concrete.
Epoxy flooring can take your concrete flooring to the next level. Epoxy coatings are designed to resist not just everyday wear-and-tear but also spills, moisture, stains, chemicals, and even microbes. They are high-wearing, high-traffic, heavy-use industrial flooring solutions that offer incredible versatility when it comes to aesthetics. With epoxy, you can choose from a vast array of finishing options from quartz and flake to metallic to create just the look you want. The high-shine look can enhance the lighting of your facility, but make no mistake: Epoxy is naturally slip-resistant. We can even include more additives to increase its slip-resistance in high-risk areas, such as kitchens, locker rooms, and bathrooms.
