How Acid Stained Concrete Can Improve Your Home's Resale Value

If you're thinking about new flooring anywhere in your Toronto Ontario home, you may want to consider acid stained concrete as an alternative to carpet, tile, or stone.

Many homeowners don’t realize just how beautiful and versatile this flooring option can be, but beautiful and versatile it is. Not only does it have all the benefits of a concrete floor: cheap, easy to clean, and strong; but an acid stained concrete surface in your home can also be incredibly pleasing to the eye. For outdoor construction or landscaping projects like building a new deck, patio, or front walkway, nothing is as durable or gives the impression of expensive materials as acid stained concrete.

Many homeowners have only one vision of concrete: something that's dull, gray and best left for an unfinished basement or a garage. However, that vision is an outdated version of the material. Today, concrete has become a stunning alternative to even the most expensive tiles or stones. The application of acid staining allows builders to combine colours and industry techniques to achieve unique, custom flooring textures, colours and designs to match the whole decor of your house. Furthermore, since it is such a durable material for flooring and custom landscaping projects, once it's stained and sealed, it can have a dramatic impact on the look of any room in a house.

Using acid stained cement on outdoor areas like patios, driveways and walkways will unquestionably add curb appeal and style to your home. Visitors will think you invested in high-end limestone or flagstone and paid an artist for unique designs. Since acid staining is as much art as function, the company you choose to do the work must have a full understanding of the application technique – like Elite Concrete, a business in the Toronto region who specialize in acid stained concrete. It's always best to work with one contractor from start to finish instead of choosing different companies for each step of the process to ensure the work you have done is cohesive and completed quickly and efficiently. This provides an easy transition from the first step, all the way through to the final step of your renovation project, ensuring beautiful and long-lasting flooring. Check out the incredible work that Elite Concrete has completed in the past for an idea of what is possible in your home!

Most often you'll see acid stained floors in kitchens where it is necessary for the floor to handle the impact of things being dropped, food being spilled, or large appliances being moved around without worry of tearing linoleum or cracking tiles. Additionally, if you're looking for a unique floor for the living room, bedrooms or any other room, and have pets or children, consider this as an incredible alternative to expensive hardwood floors or carpeting. This is best type of flooring material because of its ability to withstand daily wear including high-traffic areas.
Have you ever wanted magnificent marble flooring in the foyer of your home? You can still achieve the elegance without the expense by using acid stained concrete. It's the optimal finish for almost any area of the home, like foyers, kitchens, family rooms, finished basements, outdoor decks and patios, walkways to the house, and even around an in-ground pool or under a cabana.
