Hi. I love these concrete floors. Can you please tell me how you achieved the color of these floors and how far apart the joints were placed? We are going to build a midcentury modern inspired home in about a year's time and I love the idea of
of durability and affordability of concrete floors.

When not used in concrete, fly ash is disposed of either in landfills or in wet ash ponds, where it can leach into surface water and groundwater. Recently the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) came out in favor of recycling the material through use in concrete.Some environmentalists are eager to
to encapsulate the fly ash inside concrete; theoretically leaching rates would be much lower than through traditional disposal means. Proponents of fly ash recycling also point out that it reduces the amount of Portland cement needed in concrete. Portland cement is a very energy- and carbon-intensive product

The main concern is whether the fly ash leaches heavy metals after the concrete cures, introducing
What did you do with the concrete floors? Thanks.
Hello, Can you tell me after polishing the concrete, what type of coating (protection) you put on it? Is it epoxy? If yes, is it matt or
O)ntario Canada. We want to obtain the same floor look as the photo. Is power troweling enough or should we polish the floor and use epoxy?
can you explain the process of termination of the floor? thanks

how did you score the concrete?
As the Architect we were not involved in scoring the concrete floor. If you are planning a project with concrete as the finish floor, best to ask a concrete contractor about your unique situation
Hello, Thank you for your kind comments! The integral color of the scored concrete was completed back in 2000, and I do not have easy access to the offsite project archives. The color reads between a black and dark olive and looks

Beautiful room! On the concrete floor, did you grout the score lines?
That floor is the seamless or other system of floor ?
What color is the concrete? Thanks!
I can't tell if it's a white or a light gray. We're doing polished concrete floors, and I'm trying

What's the maintenance like for this type of stained concrete floor in a residence? Do you need to polish and/or reseal yearly, every 3 years, etc? Only 2 residents so not a ton of foot traffic...

where a reactive stain was used on the concrete surface. A water-based urethane sealer was used to give the floor depth of color and a satin finish. The stain produces a variegated and marbled look on the concrete surface. Stained concrete floors by Dancer Concrete Design of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Home built
you use on this floor? It's exactly what I'm looking for!
How do you keep the floor from being too cold for bare feet?
I have always wanted to rip up the carpet in my basement and do something like this, but it is always cool down there and I am worried the bare cement floor would only add to
Radiant floor heating is a great solution for cold floors. You can install electric heating mats or cable under concrete, stone, tile, laminate, carpet, you name it! http://www.houzz.com/projects/120203/Electric-Radiant-Floor-Heating
