About Us

It has become the new material of choice for designers and homeowners across the United States. Concrete floors in stained, colored, painted, and personalized glory are popping up in retail stores, trendy restaurants, offices, and homes everywhere. A concrete floor offers numerous options for interior rooms including nearly limitless designs, colors, and even health benefits.

One of the most common places you'll see decorative concrete these days is under your feet. Whether it's acid-stained, painted, overlays, microtoppings, radiant floors, or a unique personal floor, concrete floors offer a range unlike any other material. Cement flooring no longer has to be gray and boring. Now coloring concrete, or applying textures, patterns, saw cuts, etc., can bring new life to this traditional substrate. Concrete can be so uniquely designed or so naturally colored that it blends seamlessly with other elements in a room--oftentimes, you don't even realize it's a concrete floor you're standing on!

" It's just amazing what technology has done. And we have no idea where it's going. It's advancing all the time" says Kenneth Allen President of Creative Concrete.

Kenneth offers a host of reasons why concrete is a popular material for cement floors:

  • It enhances the integrity of architect's designs.
  • They are easy to maintain.
  • It's easy to change, especially if you sell your home; the next owner can place carpet or wood on top of the concrete slab.
  • They are great in regions with a lot of sand or water.
  • They are a good alternative to carpet if you have allergies.

One of the most popular ways to achieve color is through acid-staining. Chemical stains can be applied to new or old, plain or colored concrete surfaces. Although they are often called acid stains, acid isn't the ingredient that colors the concrete. Metallic salts in an acidic, water-based solution react with hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide) in hardened concrete to yield insoluble, colored compounds that become a permanent part of the concrete.
