We spend lots of time talking about why you SHOULD get concrete flooring in your home. However, nothing can be perfect, right? So let’s take a look at some of the potential negatives, and discuss if they would really be an issue for you.

Potential Negative: Concrete flooring can be slippery at times.Stamped-Overlay-Yorkstone

Rationalization: Well, sure if they get wet they will be slippery. That much is true. However, the myth here is in the flawed logic. You see, a wet concrete floor isn’t going to be any more slippery than wet tile, vinyl, smooth wood, etc. The key is to keep them dry and you will be fine.

Potential Negative: Concrete flooring is cold.

Rationalization: Again, this can be true, but not any more so than other hard types of flooring. And if you live in a hotter climate (like the Houston area where we service), cold flooring is best for the majority of the year. As far as our brief winter, well, you can always use strategically placed rugs in bedrooms where you tend to walk barefooted.
