Here at Childers Concrete Company, we are committed to helping contractors like you do their best work, and we offer the high-quality supplies you need to do just that. We know virtually all there is to know about all types of concrete, including decorative concrete, and we are here to help you use concrete to its best effect. In this article, we’ll go over three reasons why you should incorporate decorative concrete elements into your next project.
- Design Potential- One reason why we are fans of decorative concrete and want to see more people use it is because it offers a great deal of design potential. Our team can make concrete in just about any color you like and give it any texture, pattern, or design you can imagine. Decorative concrete can be used to mimic the look of other materials, including natural stone, brick, tile, or even wood, making it a highly flexible option and a great tool for any designer.
- Low Cost- Building on that last point, decorative concrete offers a more affordable alternative to luxury materials like natural stone. Our concrete can be made to look all but indistinguishable from any natural stone, but has a much lower price point, as there’s no need to worry about the rarity of the stone or the cost of transporting it from the single Italian quarry that produces it. If you can offer your clients this option, they are sure to take note and spread the word.
- Quick Installation- Decorative concrete is also a great option for restoring older concrete that’s become distressed or damaged. Rather than having to tear out the old slabs to make room for something else, like bricks, you can instead resurface the existing concrete and give it a new, custom overlay. This makes installation much easier and quicker, which is sure to appeal to your clients.
