Showing Our True Colors

The same reasons that stained concrete is chosen as a finished flooring material is also the same reason that it is may not desired by some. Stained concrete floors will not hide surface blemishes, patching compounds or other marks that were left in the original concrete. These characteristics are usually seen as ideal, but when consistent and opaque color is desired an epoxy floor by Nick Dancer Concrete will suite you best.

The colors for this floor were chosen from Sherwin Williams color swatches of Crabby Apple, Earthen Jug, Toasty, Familiar Beige and Sable. The benefit of using a colored epoxy is that colors can be chosen from any color (Yes, Actually any color at all!). On this basement project we cleaned and prepared the floor, cut in our designs, applied a water-based primer, 2-coats of the epoxy w/color, and then an aqueous urethane topcoat. The cuts that were put into the floor to define the design were also filled in with a dark brown filler to create sharp lines and give the floor a seamless feel. An interior cement overlay was applied as a 10’’ border to fill in holes left by tack strips from previous carpeting.

The floor will last many years with minimal maintenance and be a great conversation piece while entertaining. The space still needs base trim and some other minimal finishing but the pictures below show how this floor turned out.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to feed us; but we do want to come over and talk.
