Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 16, 2014
The garage floor can be one of the most distinctive features of a house. Not only can a unique garage floor provide great aesthetic value, but it can also be very functional—whether as part of the traditional area for parking cars or as an extension for joyous occasions like parties and receptions. To this end, Houston-based company Houston Concrete is now offering new stamped concrete offerings for garage floors.
Made to look like actual stone, stamped concrete from Houston Concrete is manufactured with a thickness of 4 inches, and it has a 300-pounds-per-square-inch (PSI) rating. The coating is thus thicker and tougher than that of Houston Concrete's competitors, which usually provide stamped concrete options rated at around 2,500 to 2,800 PSI. Also, each option from Houston Concrete is accompanies by control joints for managing possible cracking during the summer, and transits for proper drainage in case of a flood in the garage area.
Stamped concrete is characterized by patterns or textures that resemble bricks, flagstones, tiles or wood. Of high visual appeal, it is used to beautify driveways, patios, sidewalks, walkways, and pool decks. Stamped concrete, however, is rarely used for garage floors, which makes the offering from Houston Concrete all the more unique. Instead of the typical drab concrete commonly associated with garage floors, residential customers can beautify them with more visually appealing material.
Each Houston Concrete project uses time-tested and high-quality concrete techniques and materials. Well trained professionals start off by creating a compactable base material with rebar-bearing redwood expansion joints. Then they wheel in the concrete, level it for an even surface, bullfloat and trowel it to smoothen everything, and broom the concrete to produce a slip-resistant surface. The entire process usually lasts between one to five days. To maintain the surface, Houston Concrete recommends re-sealing it once every three years.
