Why Choose Concrete?
If you haven’t heard of or seen concrete floors in a home or business, then you may be a bit skeptical about furnishing your home or business with this material. While many homes and businesses in Los Angeles are furnished with marble or granite floors, these natural stone surfaces require a great deal of maintenance and care. In addition to requiring a great deal of maintenance, these surfaces are also expensive to install and care for. Here are a few reasons why you may want to consider concrete floors for your home or business:
One of the main reasons why home and business owners choose concrete floors is because they can be customized to fit virtually any decor and style. As we explained in our post about concrete staining, the options are almost endless when it comes to the design styles available to those with concrete floors. Contemporary homes and lofts in the Hollywood Hills may want to choose a sleek gray or polished white look, while homes with a more traditional theme could benefit from a neutral matte polish. No matter what your aesthetic preferences may be, concrete flooring can accommodate them.
Concrete floors are a fantastic option for those looking for a gorgeous flooring option without a hefty price tag. While you can purchase marble flooring for as low as $10 per square foot, you don’t want to compromise on quality. You can expect to pay anywhere between $20 and $40 per square foot for high-quality marble, plus the costs of installation and ongoing maintenance. Granite flooring is a bit cheaper, generally running between $10 and $20 per square foot, though its maintenance requirements are similar to those of marble.
You can expect to pay thousands of dollars for marble and granite floors, but concrete flooring costs between $2 and $6 per square foot. It’s important to note, however, that this estimate is only for the installation of basic gray slabs. While some home and business owners may enjoy the natural stone look of gray concrete, many choose to pay extra for concrete staining and concrete polishing. Even with an elaborate concrete staining job, concrete flooring will still remain cheaper than marble and granite by thousands of dollars.
