Concrete today is no longer what it once was. Custom colors, unique textures and exquisite patterns have transformed yesterday’s plain, gray concrete into today’s one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Decorative concrete applications, more than ever, are popping up in homes, hotels, casinos, restaurants, and more across the country.
The Concrete Network, the largest and most comprehensive source for concrete information anywhere in the world revealed the top five researched decorative concrete services for the summer. The data, illustrating the hottest trends among homeowners, designers and builders, 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.

5. Interior Concrete Floors
"Decorative concrete is one of the hottest building 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."
