If you have limited indoor and outdoor space to work with, you want to make the most of it. The next time you start thinking about an upgrade, consider colored concrete. San Antonio home and business owners that choose colored concrete for their indoor and outdoor spaces find that it is simply the best option out there – keep reading to learn why!

The Benefits of Colored Concrete

The type of colored concrete product you choose will be determined by your goals and vision for the space. For example, if you want something that looks and feels like stone, you might choose the SunStone architectural limestone coating. This system is troweled by hand and stained to achieve the look of premium materials, like terrazzo, flagstone, or slate. If you want a uniform texture over a larger surface and the freedom to add your choice of color, something a little more basic, like the Classic Texture system, might be right up your alley. This system can be customized with any of Sundek’s 16 signature colors and your choice of finish coat.

Another benefit of colored concrete is that it offers extreme durability. When it comes to impact and abrasion resistance, epoxy flooring, such as the SunEpoxy thin mil epoxy flooring system, is at the top of the list. The SunEpoxy 54 system is ideal for garage floors, warehouses, and light manufacturing facilities while the SunEpoxy 100 system is a little more heavy-duty, ideal for high-traffic areas. Either of these systems can be customized with SunChip acrylic paint chips in a solid or multicolored pattern of your choice.

As durable as colored concrete is, you can further protect the surface with an acrylic finish coat or clear sealer. The SunColor water-based acrylic finish coat adds durability and ease of maintenance. Plus, it can be customized with color or aggregates to add nonslip resistance. The SunClear system of clear sealers is another great option for both indoor and outdoor surfaces. SunClear EcoProtect offers maximum gloss retention for pool decks, patios, and commercial flooring while SunClear UltraProtect is hard yet flexible, ideal for high-traffic areas. Either of these systems can be customized with fine aggregates for a slip-resistant texture.
