How to skip the overly time consuming and overly expensive home renovation
When it comes to updating your home there is a long list of options which are less intrusive, less expensive and less drama than a full remodel. It’s pretty common for homeowners to want to change or update something in their home, but to want to avoid major steps. Not everyone has the time to live out of a hotel or go without a functioning kitchen. There are plenty of home updates that can make a fun change without upending your entire life – or budget.
The fastest and cheapest update would be simply buying some new decor or furniture. Of course that’s a quick fix and doesn’t dramatically change or update the oldest parts of your home. Cabinets are another popular fix – they can be refinished, stained, painted, and updated with new hardware. But that option takes lots of work and steps. One of the fastest and most cost-effective options that still gives your home a completely new look is to stain your concrete.
Your garage, driveway, or patio would take on a completely new look. An unfinished basement floor can look finished without carpet or padding. Concrete countertops can look completely new, original, and trendy. All with a simple concrete stain!
Staining concrete is a very quick process, and can be done without disrupting your water supply or appliances. If done correctly it can last for decades with minimal to no maintenance. The options for colors, textures, and finishes are almost unlimited, so it’s very easy to find a concrete stain to match your home design. It can also create a totally unique look that will set your home apart from the neighborhood.
Staining concrete is a simple process that begins with preparing the concrete. It needs to be clean and crack free (if you need concrete repair then Hard Rock Concrete Coating can take care of you) and primed before concrete stains can take hold. Then the stain is carefully applied to the concrete surface and left to take effect. Once the concrete stain has reached the desired color and intensity it will be sealed with a coating to ensure long term color and quality. Finally you just need to keep your concrete in good condition – avoiding damage, cracks, breakage, or undue stress or pressure.
Staining your concrete surfaces is a very fast update that can completely change the look of your home or property for a fraction of the cost of new flooring or remodeling, and in a quarter of the time! It’s an option that is easy to do-it-yourself, while is still affordable to contract concrete professionals to do for you. Whether you’re building a new home or updating an older home then staining concrete is an excellent choice for you.
