Concrete is an excellent choice when it comes to construction. Not many materials can boast the many wonderful characteristics of this material. For starters, concrete is incredibly strong and durable. Unlike most material which weaken over time, concrete actually gets stronger and gains strength as time goes on. It’s no surprise then that the ancient Roman structures that still stand today were made using concrete. This option is highly beneficial and incredibly durable, making it a great option for home and business owners in the El Paso area. Concrete comes in a variety of forms. Pervious, stained and stamped concrete are the most common options. As concrete contractors, Bomanite Artistic Concrete offers the appropriate type of concrete service and assistance.
Whether you’re considering lithocrete, pervious, stained, stamped or all four, Bomanite is the team for the job. Since concrete can be used in a variety of places, it’s crucial to team up with concrete contractors who understand the material and the benefits and downfalls of each option.
Lithocrete is the result of a patented process in which materials and concrete are embedded and fully adhered to each other, resulting in dramatic concrete paving. Recycled materials, such as glass, are used in order to provide a wide range of colors not typically found in other paving options. Bright blues, yellows and reds are just some of the colors lithocrete produces. None of these glass aggregate colors will fade under sunlight. They naturally reflect light, resulting in less heat absorption.
The mixture of cement, coarse aggregates and water creates a type of concrete known as pervious concrete. This option offers many excellent environmental benefits as well as developmental and financial benefits. Due to its highly porous nature, pervious concrete allows water to pass through directly. This option greatly reduces runoff water, allowing groundwater to recharge.
Although it may sound a little odd, stained concrete is the highest level of opulence for flooring. This option comes in two varieties: acid-based chemical stains and water-based acrylics. The former option provides subtle tones while the latter is known for its more distinct colors. What’s great about the stained concrete option is that it can be done to any type of concrete. So if you’re looking to add a touch of originality and elegance to your home, consider this option.
Concrete can replicate other types of material such as stone, brick, tile, and wood. This option is known as stamped concrete and it offers the aesthetic beauty of the materials listed above along with the resistance and long-lasting quality of concrete. Stamped concrete looks great both outdoors and indoors. It provides a perfect replica for flooring that requires waterproof or impact-resistance properties. It’s no surprise that homeowners with pools choose stamped concrete as the flooring option to surround their backyard area.
