Stained Concrete Floors Top Web Site’s Search Trends

Dec. 11, 2007

YUCAIPA, CA /PRNewswire/ - ConcreteNetwork.com recorded more than 3 million unique page views for stained concrete flooring information since January 2007. These statistics include a growing number of consumers researching the green benefits and design possibilities of concrete floors.

Highlighted as a trendy, yet eco-friendly flooring solution, stained concrete continues to generate the most interest among other flooring applications.

One factor contributing to the success of concrete floor surfaces is the material's green benefits. Stained concrete interior floors, when left exposed, can function both as the foundation slab and finished floor. Their high heating/cooling retention allows floors to absorb, store and release this energy when conditions are ideal, resulting in lowered heating and cooling costs.

"Green building with concrete promotes a healthier, more comfortable living environment," explains Jim Peterson, president of ConcreteNetwork.com. "Concrete floors offer greater durability with less maintenance, and they're a beautiful alternative."

Additionally, the health benefits with concrete floors are overwhelming. The Healthy House Institute reports that indoor air pollution is the cause of about 50 percent of illnesses. Floors stained with nontoxic pigments do not emit harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs), reduce harmful allergens, and are easy to sweep clean.

Another benefit of stained concrete floors is that consumers can create nearly any design.  Stains create a colorful richness, leaving behind a permanent, flake-proof color. They can be applied to new and most existing concrete surfaces. Depending on the color and application techniques used, results can mimic everything from polished marble to tanned leather or even stained wood.
