This type of concrete allows for smoother finishes, and it is a bit easier to place overall. Also, we are going to need less water to install this type of concrete, so overall it can be less of a mess. That is usually why it is one of our favorite materials to use when installing floors indoors. There is a lot of myths surrounding that self-leveling label that we want to tackle. We have said, it is easier to mold, and we are going to use less water. That does not mean that you just pour it and you are done!
What Is The Real Difference?
First of all, we want to say that we are capable of working with all different types of concrete. So, this is just an option that we have for you. We talked a little bit in the introduction section about the fact that it is known for making smoother surfaces and requires less water to place. Those would be some of the differences. As you can see it is more about the process of placing the concrete more so than it is about the actual finished product. That does not mean though that these benefits are not nice!
Great For Indoor Installation
If you have ever had any type of concrete flooring installed indoors you know what type of a mess it can be. When you are doing it outdoors, that is not such a big deal. When working indoors though the rest of the property is really going to appreciate the fact that we are going to be working with less water and that the process is quicker overall. Concrete flooring indoors can really give your home or any other type of building for that matter a steady platform that you can take advantage of.
How Much Smoother?
The fact that this type of concrete can produce a smoother finish is one of the things companies like us, or individual contractors always want to highlight. How much smoother can this type of concrete get? That actually really depends on the people who are setting it. The reason that it has the potential to provide a smoother finish is that it spreads out and covers the surface a lot better. Which, means that mostly you are going to be using less of it to be able to cover a larger area. The more it is able to spread the smoother it may be. Finding that middle ground between spreading out and remaining compact enough to hold a significant amount of weight is the key.
Does The Price Vary A Lot Compared To Regular Concrete?
There are people out there that believe that what actually happens is that we offer this type of concrete just to charge more money. That is not the case. While this type of concrete can go for a heftier price tag, we are going to be using less of it to cover the area. At the end of the day, the prices are going to be really close.
