What You Need to Know

Product & Process

Unlike carpeting, a decorative concrete floor can’t be installed in just a few hours or a day; and the payoff is well worth the extra time and effort involved. Once the project is finished, your concrete floor will look beautiful for decades without the need for replacement, will be easily repaired in the event of damage, and will increase the property value of your home.

The timeline and steps involved to install a decorative concrete floor can vary greatly from job to job. On a small project, such as a bathroom, the timeline can range anywhere from two to five days. The more complex decorative concrete floor projects involving multiple stain or dye colors, an overlay, decorative sawcuts and custom graphics will take much longer to complete than a simple project calling for just one coat of stain and a sealer.

How long does it take?

Here are some key factors influencing the timeline of a decorative concrete floor installation:

• The size of the project.
• The level of complexity.
• Ease of accessibility.
• The condition of the existing floor.
• The need for concrete repair or removal of an existing floor covering.
• The need to protect surrounding surfaces, such as walls and baseboards.
• The length of the dry times required between each step, such as after each stain coat and sealer coat.

Old Concrete Vs. New

The condition of the existing concrete substrate also has a big impact on the time required for project completion. If you have a concrete slab that’s all ready for staining, polishing or application of a decorative coating or overlay, the project should go relatively quickly. If the floor is in need of extensive surface preparation or repair, or needs demolition of existing flooring, be prepared to add at least another day or two to the schedule.

In a new home or building with newly placed concrete floors, the concrete will need to cure completely before a decorative treatment can be applied (generally after seven days or longer). It is imperative that there should be absolutely nothing resting on the new concrete as it is curing. It’s also best to wait until after all drywall is installed, taped and sanded before applying a decorative treatment, to avoid potential damage from other trades.

With all these considerations in mind, our professional installers typically complete a project in 3-5 business days. (weather permitting, if applicable)
