When considering floor coverings for new or existing commercial structures such as retail, office buildings and more, cost estimators in the Northeast typically focus on the usual options: tile, carpeting, Terrazzo, vinyl, composite tile, and even paint, among others. Regardless of the quality classification of construction for new structures, floor finishing can consume five percent of your project costs, according to the 2017 National Building Cost Manual, published by Craftsman Book Company.
In existing commercial spaces where a new tenant might be moving in or renovations to the lobby are being made, choosing a floor covering might be among the biggest costs in the property owner’s budget.
Like any other undertaking where worker time, materials and budget can come into conflict, anywhere that a cost estimator can save money is a good thing.
RenuKrete makes poured concrete look like tile, slate, flagstone, hardwood and more.
When it comes to deciding which floor covering products to choose, RenuKrete makes the decision easier for estimators by eliminating other floor coverings altogether and replacing them with a flooring solution that is designer-quality and more cost effective: Engineered Concrete Flooring (ECF).
RenuKrete’s patented ECF technologies and processes artistically sculpt and tint concrete slabs to render new formations that can be made to look just like natural slate, tile, flagstone, granite and even hardwood planks. Anywhere there is a bare concrete floor either newly poured or already existing, RenuKrete can apply its patented technology to that concrete slab to make it into something new, beautiful, durable and economical.

RenuKrete uncovers concrete’s versatility in amazing ways.
In the vast majority of modern commercial buildings, concrete floors are required to be used on all floors due to the improved fire rating, strength and longevity of concrete compared to other materials. In addition, horizontal concrete is typically used in basement or first floor slab installations of residential, commercial and mixed-use buildings all over the world.
Rather than covering up these concrete slabs with expensive floor coverings that can run into the tens of thousands of dollars, RenuKrete can reveal concrete’s true decorative possibilities by using cutting-edge, proprietary technology to sculpt a distinctive floor installation design right into the existing concrete, saving property owners significant dollars in the process.
Using RenuKrete also means your building will be reducing its carbon imprint on the environment when compared to the emissions that are involved with manufacturing, distributing, delivering and installing other floor coverings.
And unlike carpeting which can quickly look worn, stained and haggard in a heavily trafficked commercial space, or tiles which can easily break or crack if struck by a dropped tool or object, low maintenance RenuKrete ECF repels all kinds of stains and abrasions and is particularly well-suited to office building lobbies and anywhere else where UV resistance is important.
