USA: Concrete Flooring: Concrete Flooring Manufacturers
ABOUT CONCRETE FLOORING
Concrete Flooring can be a simple functional surface, but it can be much more. External concrete flooring can be provided with a stamped or engraved overlay, providing a textured surface similar to that of stone paving slabs. Such concrete flooring can also be repaired and re-surfaced to improve appearance and durability. Concrete flooring can also be used internally. Special stains are available, which change the appearance of the concrete to a realistic imitation of marble or glazed stone.
