Ways to Use Concrete to Increase the Value of Your Home

The global economy has forced many home and property owners to rethink how they spend, and invest, with many forgoing expensive travel for home improvements that can increase their quality of life, as well as the value of their home. According to ConsumerReport.org, create a defined space for outdoor living can add up to five percent to the value of your home, and one of the best ways to do that is with concrete.


Champion Concrete Cutting Inc. have been adding value to homes in Edmonton and the surrounding areas including Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray, Saskatoon, and all of Western Canada since 1990. This concrete contractor in Edmonton is experienced in a range of services from concrete cutting and core drilling to concrete finishing and decorative concrete installation – where the greatest return on investment (ROI) can be found. Here are five ways that concrete can add value to your home.

One of the quickest ways, if you already have some concrete surfaces is to give them a ‘facelift’ with spray on resurfacing. Spray on concrete is great for many applications including driveways, courtyards, and pathways. A wide range of stencils, designs, and colours - that can make your concrete surface three times stronger - will add even more value to your investment and you can even add a slip resistant surface. Champion Concrete Construction Inc. has the tools and state-of-the-art equipment to conduct proper levelling and concrete finishing for a variety of projects including driveways, sidewalks, patios, curbs, and more.

Take this project to the next level with a stamped concrete patio or driveway. Stamped concrete is a process that can allow you customize by creating different patterns into freshly poured concrete, and is only possible if you do a cement overlay on top of your existing driveway, which will add several centimetres of height. For patios, people like to get very creative with concrete surrounding their pool as well as for your sidewalks, completing existing structures and garden designs. Whatever the project, Champion Concrete Construction can supply your decorative concrete.

Using Concrete Indoor
Concrete can also be used indoors - the most popular areas for concrete flooring in a home are in the kitchen, entryways, living areas, and hallways. Polished concrete has been used in commercial buildings for years, and adding colour can give you endless amounts of ideas for decor options for your home. Scoring, using saws to make shallow cuts into the concrete, can make your concrete look like tiles or pavers, as example.

A concrete kitchen counter top is not only completely customizable, right down to colours and textual features and, as long as they are properly sealed, they are heat and stain resistant as well making them perfect for the heavy use of a kitchen.

For a unique look, try concrete etching where an acid wash is used on your concrete to give the appearance of natural stone or granite in and around your home. The random results will make your flooring even more unique.
