Ready-Mix Concrete Flooring vs. Tile Flooring for Your Home or Business

ready-mix concrete flooring vs. tile flooring

Concrete flooring and tile flooring are both suitable for indoor and outdoor construction. However, deciding which type of flooring option to select is a big decision. When deciding between ready-mix concrete flooring vs. tile flooring, several factors can help you choose which is best for your home or business.

Ready-Mix Concrete Flooring vs. Tile Flooring

Appearance

With ready-mix concrete, you have the option to stain your concrete flooring to look like marble, slate, travertine or terra cotta. Staining concrete has led to the development of a rainbow of concrete stains and paints. Therefore, this gives you the same versatility as ceramic or porcelain tiles

In addition, adding scoring or stamped designs, stained concrete replicates the exact appearance of tile work. By adding grout to the scoring lines, the illusion is complete. If you like the appearance of conventional tile but want the durability of concrete, consider ready-mix concrete from Navasota Concrete.

Durability and Maintenance

The durability of tile will depend on your choice of material. Marble is a hard surface. However, it is prone to etching and discoloration from water. This makes it unsuitable for flooring in bathrooms, kitchens and entry ways.

Tile and ready-mix concrete both require routine cleaning with mild, non-abrasive cleaners. Also, high traffic areas require polishing to prevent clouding of the sealant. Ready-mix concrete will not crack under the pressure of heavy furniture either.

Cost

Ready-mix concrete is typically less expensive than tile.

Similarly, you can achieve design requirements, such as color and pattern, with concrete overlay stain systems.
