At BVM Contracting, we are always looking into alternative materials for our clients. So as far as flooring choices go, “green” flooring is the new wave here in Canada.
Used mainly in condos and commercial buildings, concrete flooring is finding its way into homes all over Canada. Polished concrete is obtained by polishing machines that grind down the concrete to whatever your desired degree of shine and smoothness might be.
Stained concrete flooring is very unique and a means to show off your designer sense. You can choose from a vast array of eco-stains and dye colours, and the sky is the limit as far as application and design! Stain is applied to the concrete and after having time to dry, it is finished off with a sealer.
Clear Coated with epoxy concrete floors are a practical alternative to vinyl flooring. With clear coating, the concrete floor is mechanically profiled and an epoxy clear coat is applied for a “polished like” look.
Not only is concrete flooring eco-friendly, it is also maintenance free and will last a life-time. For some great photos and applications for “green” flooring go to: http://www.houzz.com/concrete-flooring
