Due to its easy maintenance, concrete is the perfect solution to high traffic areas and recreational rooms.  When sealed properly, concrete flooring only needs to be swiped with a dust mop and occasionally deeply cleaned with a mild soap and water.

For safety and quality, it is best to have a professional install concrete flooring.  This is especially crucial when requesting stains and patterns.  The cost of concrete flooring ranges from the basic $2 per square foot to roughly $15 per square foot for customization and higher grade materials.
