Flooring Treatments

Whether you are buying a new home or renovating a commercial space, a new flooring treatment is a great way to infuse your unique style and personality into your space.

As with most aspects of renovations, you have many options when it comes to choosing a flooring treatment. However, depending on what lies beneath the existing floor, some choices are easier to install than others.

For typical floors that already have an existing sub-floor, you can choose to install a variety of materials such as hardwood, laminate, vinyl, tile, carpet, linoleum and even cork or bamboo.

Concrete flooring poses a challenge, however, since many materials cannot be directly adhered to its surface with first constructing a sub-floor. Before you start throwing down the sleepers and plastic, there are beautiful flooring options that can be installed directly onto a concrete slab.

Installing Flooring Treatments on Concrete Slab

Most new homes, retail outlets, and commercial spaces start with a large, unfinished gray concrete slabs.

Typical design and remodeling concepts default to tile, wood, laminate, and carpet. While these materials can easily be installed onto concrete, Parabola Developments is proud to offer Edmonton’s newest modern trend to spicing up concrete slabs.

Acid Stains

As the name implies, acid staining is an acidic staining or coloring solution for concrete floors. The chemicals within the acid stain complex react with concrete and other cementitious substrates to create a translucent look with varied color effects.

The end result is a beautifully marbled masterpiece that is totally customized and tailored to your tastes.

Chemical acid stains are readily available in 5 basic color groups: greens, blacks, oranges, browns and aged copper. Every shade has a natural earthy glow with soft mineral undertones.
