You can choose from the numerous types of decorative plain concrete slabs that are precast, stamped, blown or stained. With the aid of an electric sander you can also get rid of stains that have been set on the concrete slab by employing the “breaker” technique. Once you have removed these stains, it is very important to seal your plain concrete slab with a good quality sealer. The main benefits of sealing the slab include:
* Refinishing a concrete slab – Most concrete contractors would suggest sealing your slab before you start using it to prevent staining and other damages. However, it is not always necessary as you can refinish the concrete slabs yourself. It is better to leave the sealing process to the professionals as they can use an acid etching resin to remove stains easily. Refinishing concrete slabs can also give you a great finish and make them look like new again. Apart from this, if you decide to resell your slab in future, it will definitely fetch a better price.
* Color options – When it comes to the interior decorating of your house, color options are definitely a big draw. You can find concrete shacks in a wide variety of color patterns. To match the color of your house’s exterior wall, try mixing the colors of your house. However, if you are not interested in painting your concrete slab, then settle for the classic look of black and white. This would also help you in maintaining the same color for years.
