What Makes Polyaspartic Coating a Great Choice for Concrete?

I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about this here on the blog before, but I’m the daughter of a building contractor. Some of my earliest memories are of visiting construction sites with my dad. He’d stop and grab me breakfast on those early mornings, and we’d go check his sites. Bonus for me if there were piles of fresh sand I could play in or stacks of concrete blocks I could climb! In fact, from concrete blocks on construction sites to concrete blocks stored in our backyard at home to my dad having his own mixer and mixing and pouring concrete any time he wanted…well, I’ve been around concrete a bit in my time. But it’s fascinated me recently how versatile concrete REALLY is! Have you ever considered concrete for YOUR home?

Concrete is the most preferred choice for flooring in high-traffic areas. It has a longer life when compared to other materials. However, concrete is susceptible to moisture and chemicals.

The Benefits of Polished Concrete Flooring

Some time ago, before we moved into our home, there was a bit of water damage in our Master Bedroom. We’ve now been in the house for 3 years, and have never seen any kind of leak or seepage anywhere in the house, so I’m not sure where the issue was to start out with. But I know it affected one particular board of the wood flooring in that room. Yeah, we saw it when we bought the house, but we didn’t think it was that big of a deal.

Today, that one messed up board has off-set the rest of the flooring in our Master Bedroom. Everything has shifted a bit over the past three years, and what we didn’t think was that big of a deal now is a bit bigger, for sure. I threatened to my husband the other day that one day he would come home and find that I had just torn up the flooring in that room. He laughed…and then turned around to check and make sure that I was joking. Some days, I must admit, I think it would be much easier to do it and be done with it! And replace it with…some polished concrete!
