Help remedy Lackluster Concrete Floors by Finishing them Naturally - inexpensive, starting at $2.50 - $3.50/sq ft - Contact MODE CONCRETE in Kelowna 250.864.6566

No concrete floor is complete without the application of a sealer and/or wax. Punch up your concrete surface even further, by applying a staining agent or adding a color to the surface. Taking the time to put down this final layer of protection not only prolongs the life of your concrete floor, but also greatly enhances and preserves its natural beauty and appearance.  Since all concrete has its own unique color, ‘beauty marks,’ and personality – two floors will never be identical, but that’s the cool thing about concrete.  When wax is applied to your concrete, it comes alive and you will notice a beautiful sheen and uniform luster or reflective quality.  

And the best thing about finishing your existing concrete floors... usually most projects (like this concrete floor pictured below that we recently refinished in the Okanagan).  This process usually only take 2 days and costs as little as $2.50/sq foot.  

Here is an example of a natural concrete existing kitchen floor, that we simply re-waxed and repaired for this client.  It's an easy, cost effective flooring option that elevates the natural beauty that occurs already in concrete.  Great for people with allergies, it's an eco-friendly flooring option and it is has great longevity when compared to other flooring materials - what else could you ask for?!  It's the ideal flooring material!

It is extremely durable, requires very little maintenance, and will likely outlast the home or business which surrounds it. The materials used to seal stained concrete include water-based sealers, waxes, alternative green sealers and solvent based sealers. Always make sure that the concrete contractor preforms tests on small areas, or shows you samples of what to expect. The top question we consistently get is 'AREN'T CONCRETE FLOORS COLD brrrrrrrr?' and our answer is always, 'expect the same temperature and hardness as tile or other natural stone flooring options.'
