Decorative Concrete Follows Gore and Schwarzenegger's "Leed"

Share Article

A new online resource follows Gore and Swhwarzenegger's 'leed' offering options for consumers to choose Decorative Concrete for building and design. Concrete is becoming noticed as an environmentally friendly choice for people who are getting on board to a 'green' future.

A new online decorative concrete resource is on board to a green future. While people are starting to take notice of what Gore and Schwarzenegger have been advocating across the globe, the most widely used material (no not water) in the world is leading the way for a greener future and gaining in popularity.

The product is Concrete.

Concrete is becoming the choice when choosing a smart environmentally green product to build with. It is an extremely durable product that requires much less long-term maintenance when compared to alternate products; not to mention the rating points earned because it emits virtually zero toxic vapors. (Volatile organic compounds.)

The use of concrete for countertops, light emitting concrete, finished colorful cement floors, decorative concrete patios, driveways, polished finishes, and furniture are all being showcased on the website as a way to utilize this eco-friendly product.

Today's decorative concrete technology offers better choices. Instead of tearing out an old concrete slab just so it can be re-poured, it can be resurfaced using micro-thin concrete material and can then be colored and finished. Polishing concrete can add a lustrous shine to a new or existing concrete slab rather than covering it up with a synthetic floor covering material. Technology also offers the ability to acquire a functional yet beautiful finished floor during the initial placement of a concrete slab for new construction projects in both residential and commercial applications.

Schools, retail outlets, institutions, and large chain superstores like Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Costco Wholesale are all choosing decorative concrete for their design plans. Companies today are committed to sticking with energy efficient, healthier, safer and longer lasting building materials. Concrete fits this profile.

Architects, Designers, Builders and Home Owners are all beginning to realize the green benefits of concrete, and can use the Technical Data and color charts section on the website to help them specify decorative concrete systems for their upcoming projects.
