If you are contemplating on building a new garage, you probably are wondering why more and more of your neighbors are opting for metal buildings. The popularity of metal buildings is undeniable and this is because they offer advantages and benefits that are unmatched by traditional construction. Metal buildings are now being used not just for large structures like factories, warehouses and aircraft hangars, they are now going strong in the residential market.
Metal buildings are extremely flexible. In fact, they are the new favorites of designers and homeowners alike. Metal buildings can be designed to be either minimalist or grandiose, depending on the preferences of the owners and the purpose of the structures. What’s more, metal buildings can either be built with one or two stories, adding to their unlimited applications.
One of your best options for the flooring of your metal garage is concrete. Since your metal garage is so easy to maintain, choosing a floor type that requires minimal care and is compatible with metal buildings, is an added bonus.
The good news is that concrete flooring for metal buildings need not be gray and boring. Nowadays, staining concrete has become the most popular application for transforming concrete slabs into things of beauty.
Stained concrete is sometimes referred to as colored concrete and can be an option for flooring of metal buildings. The technology has been gaining a lot of following because of the unique results that can be achieved through the combination of colors and application techniques. In fact, the outcome is limited only by your creativity and imagination.
Because concrete is porous and has a neutral tone, it is a perfect medium for topically applying colors. Contractors use acid-based chemical stains to achieve rich, earth-toned color schemes. Your garage floor can resemble natural stone, marble, wood or even leather, depending on your style and preference.
