As we wrap up the year as flooring general contractors in Ohio we celebrate the many successful projects we have been able to accomplish with homeowners and commercial property owners alike. 

Our jobs never get boring as the versatility of concrete and its finishing options means no two projects are the same. This year we have seen many different concrete finishes shine in countless applications from pool decks, patios, and walkways, to commercial flooring, garages, and interior flooring. 

As we step into 2024 we know we will continue to see modern techniques used to turn plain concrete into luxurious flooring. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular concrete finishes we saw add depth, texture and design to any space in 2023. 

Textured Concrete Finishes

Texture finishes are a great way to add a unique architectural touch to your home. There are a wide variety of textured finishes available, depending on what you’re looking for and how your project is going to be done. Some finishes are based on additives, like sand particles, while others use different techniques, like the broom finish, to achieve the look you’re after. 

Natural Finishes

One of the most popular looks we are asked to achieve at the moment is a natural finish look. This can be achieved in a number of ways – it will depend on the concrete you have in place. These processes involve doing the least amount of grinding possible so that there is little to no stone showing through the surface. With this process, you will need to keep in mind that it is the most difficult for us to achieve because it is entirely reliant on the concrete pouring a perfect slab.

Dyes and stains

Dyeing and staining concrete enables the creation of earth tones and vibrant colors. They also allow for stenciled designs, logos, or other motifs to be created on interior concrete surfaces. Dyes penetrate the pores of concrete and fill them with small particles that impart color.

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete is the perfect way to add a unique touch to any concrete project. Stamped concrete, commonly referred to as textured or imprinted concrete, is a type of concrete finish designed to resemble brick, natural stone such as slate or flagstone, tile, and even wood. Color hardener is a popular way of coloring concrete that accentuates the stamped pattern.

Polished finishes

Polished finishes are a great way to create a more sophisticated look. A polished finish is a smooth, shiny surface that reflects light. It’s versatile enough to complement both modern and traditional styles. Plus, it’s durable and easy to maintain, so you can use it for years to come
