There are numerous benefits when it comes to selecting cement as the ideal option for an installation within any environment.

One of the trickiest decisions when renovating or building your home is deciding on the most suitable type of flooring. An important part of making this decision is weighing up the pros and cons of different flooring options. Many people consider concrete for its versatility and durability, and there are also several other benefits in choosing a cement-based finish for a floor.

A cement-based floor finish allows the creation of a seamless flow from indoors to outdoors, enabling the extension of indoor living spaces. There are several options that prevent a cement floor from being slippery when considered for exterior use. One option is to choose a textured finish. If a smooth look is desired, Cemcrete also offers a slip-resistant sealer which reduces the risk of slips and falls on surfaces prone to getting wet.

Cement is naturally an extremely durable product. It offers shear strength, making it the most crucial element on any construction site. Cement floors will last longer than more inexpensive flooring options and therefore offers a better return on investment.

When it comes to selecting a floor, maintenance and cleaning play a crucial role. Once installed and finished off with the correct sealer, the new cement-based floor is easy to clean and maintain – only requiring damp mopping. A good-quality sealer is applied to help resist water, stains, dirt and abrasives.

The variety of colours, designs and combinations in each product range makes Cemcrete’s cement-based floors a good choice for several spaces. It offers a range of various colours for each floor product, as well as various sealers to add further effects (gloss, matt, slip resistance, colour enhancement, etc.).

Decorative cement-based flooring is considered an ideal synergy between beauty, sustainability and economy.
