Let’s face it: hardwood floors are high maintenance. Although beautiful, it would always turn out that hardwood floors will eventually and time and time again be a huge maintenance task for you. Our reasons, you say? Shoes shouldn’t be worn inside the house because it might mess up the flooring. It scratches easily with dirt, sand or gravel that tracks on it. Rearranging your furniture can become risky as moving things around might scratch or damage the floor. It also needs re-sanding/re-staining every few years to keep it looking shiny and presentable. Water and other spills can also cause a significant amount of damage to the floor.
This might lead other homeowners to look for an alternative to wood that could still look like the real wood. Well, the good news is that stamped concrete can achieve this look for you!
