Interior Concrete: Select the Beautiful, Durable Alternative

Around the upper Midwest in retail establishments, custom homes, businesses, restaurants, and themed environments, Lowell Russell Concrete engineered systems allow the creation of beautiful and unique architectural concrete floors in both new construction and renovation.

More and more people are discovering the “secret” to creating stunning and stylish floors and are now foregoing the traditional vinyl, carpet and hardwood flooring altogether in favor of concrete.  The concrete floor of today is a far cry from the dull and dull industrial looking floors of years past. You will see and appreciate a range of colors, textures and stains that you never thought possible.  Due to the latest modern technology, one can even appreciate the classic grey concrete floor, which was once considered uninteresting, but with modern methods can look absolutely stunning provided the right surface prep and finishing is done.

Unique, colored variegated or translucent effects are achievable with chemical staining. Complementing the most contemporary decor, individualistic theme or traditional design, Lowell Russell Concrete systems offer value with virtually limitless potential for design with remarkably diverse range of style applications. Materials such as terrazzo, slate, hardwood, or imported tile can be replicated on moderate budgets.

Terrazzo or Granite Epoxy

Want to add some texture and a unique look to your home? A terrazzo or granite epoxy might just be what you need. Both finishing methods provide a similar look and are known to be extremely durable and easy to maintain. They both use decorative color chips that are disseminated into liquid epoxy allowing for a large number of different color possibilities and patterns to appreciate. Even with the range of colors available, the finished look tends to be uniformly textured and is quite smooth too.

Acrylic Sealers

These offer a thin, protective film on the surface of your concrete floor. They come in a wide variety of sheens and provide excellent protection against water. When it comes to color they provide a uniform look. They are quite hard with a tinge of flexibility and a vibrant matte finish.

Standard Epoxy

Recommended for the high-traffic areas of your home. The finish is intended for indoor use and creates a vibrant glossy appearance to your concrete floor. Epoxy finish is known to be durable, resistant to abrasion as well as to chemicals too. This type of concrete finish offers a nice uniform look to your floor.

Concrete Staining

Chemstaining is a ready to use, penetrating acidic stain that chemically reacts with cured concrete to produce permanent, variegated or translucent effects. Chemical Staining allows for more creative and artistic designs to be possible. They can be used to simulate other products; such as tile, wood, and stone; and create original designs never before imagined with concrete. It brings the durability and strength of concrete to table, countertops, entryways, and decks which concrete would usually not be a consideration. The flexibility to give a new look to old concrete without the major undertaking of the tear out.
