Decorative concrete is one of the hottest trends today
Yucaipa, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2006
The Concrete Network, the largest and most comprehensive source for concrete information anywhere in the world, today revealed that Phoenix is the busiest area in the US for decorative concrete services. The data illustrating this trend, is derived from Web site data from The Concrete Network, which generates hundreds of thousands of visitors per month, much more than any other site in the field. These statistics are useful to contractors, manufacturers and others in the industry who want to know where decorative concrete is booming.
The Phoenix metropolitan area has long been one of the fastest growing areas in the country. With homeowner spending and business market growth, it is no wonder that Phoenix is quickly establishing itself as the hottest place for decorative concrete.
Another attribute that has lead to the continuing rise in the popularity of concrete applications is the climate and temperature of the area. Year-round temperatures average from the mid 60’s in the winter to the 100’s in the summer months. Contractors have the opportunity to work year round due to the dryer climate and warmer weather, coinciding with the building trends in the area.
“Decorative concrete is one of the hottest trends today,” said Jim Peterson, CEO of The Concrete Network. “The more understanding that a contractor has about what consumers are spending big money on, the more successful they will be. That’s why we supply this valuable data to the market.”
Decorative concrete is a versatile and cost effective application comparing favorably to other home improvement options, such as granite, slate, brick, etc. The colors, patterns, and styles available with decorative concrete are nearly limitless. Applications such as stamped concrete, stained concrete, concrete overlays, engraving, concrete countertops, and polishing are just a few of the many ways homeowners, builders and designers are taking advantage of the versatility of decorative concrete.
The Concrete Network’s Find-A-Contractor service provides visitors with a list of decorative concrete contractors throughout the U.S. and Canada. The service is fully searchable by 22 types of decorative concrete work and 198 metropolitan areas throughout North America.
Established in 1999, The Concrete Network’s purpose is to educate consumers, builders, and contractors on popular decorative techniques and applications including stamped concrete, stained concrete floors, concrete countertops, polished concrete, and much more.
