Create An Affordable, Durable Floor In Your Club With Concrete

by Patrick Taylor

If you are interested in opening a new club, it is important to take the time to make sure that it looks great, but is also as functional as it can be. When you lease a space that you plan to use as a club, you often need to do some renovations to make it work well for your purposes. One of the many factors that you need to take into consideration is the flooring in the space. Concrete flooring is a great option because it is durable, easy to clean, and very affordable. The following guide walks you through the process of having customer concrete floors created in your club.

Get Permission from the Landlord

When you lease a building from a landlord, you have to get permission from the landlords to make any changes to the building. Be sure to take the time to get permission from the landlord in writing before you allow any work to start taking place.

Hire a Concrete Contractor

Once you have permission to create the floor, hire a concrete contractor to create it for you. Be sure to let him or her know exactly what you expect. They will be able to provide you with an estimate for what the concrete will cost and how long it will take for the entire job to be completed.

Decide the Color You Want the Floor to Be

Before the concrete starts to be poured, you need to decide if you want the concrete to be a beige color or if you think a different color would look better. You can have the concrete dyed to just about any color you think would look nice, but it has to be dyed before the concrete is spread.

Consider If You Want a Shiny or Dull Look

Once the concrete has hardened, you need to decide if you want it to have a shiny or dull look. Concrete can be polished to create a shiny finish or be left alone to have a dull finish. Having the floors polished will take some time and can be a bit expensive because of the process that has to be done to create the shine. The contractor will have the concrete polishing equipment to make the floors shiny, but you have to be willing to pay extra for that service.

Once the concrete floors are complete, everyone can start walking on them right away. Concrete is an affordable option that can create a very elegant look when it is stained and polished.
