While commonly viewed as a commercial building material, concrete has several valuable benefits for homeowners. For residential applications, concrete provides:
Durability and strength to withstand both every day and extreme conditions. Whether it is countertops or driveways, concrete is built to last. Concrete countertops outperform other materials such as granite when it comes to withstanding wear and tear from cooking. Concrete driveways can last decades and are designed to handle constant traffic.
Versatility for every area inside and outside of the home. Concrete flooring and countertops are an attractive addition to your kitchen, bathroom, and other living areas. Concrete garage and basement floors provide long-lasting protection. Stains, design, and patterns are readily available for you to customize the look of your concrete.
Maintenance for concrete is a simple process. Once set, outdoor concrete only needs periodic cleaning and sealing. Indoor concrete is even easier to maintain using a mop, water, and gentle soap.
Sustainable building materials like concrete save energy, money, and time. Concrete is made from renewable resources and can be recycled down the road. Since concrete can last decades, less materials are needed to replace it. Concrete can also lower your home energy’s costs. Lastly, concrete is sourced from local suppliers who can produce the exact amount needed for each job.
