Retailers have a variety of options for protecting and beautifying concrete floors – e.g., applying a paint system, toppings, covering it with materials such as VCT or carpet, or polishing with or without stains or dye. The selection of the materials depends on the service environment, purpose of the materials (aesthetics vs. function), maintenance expectations, and cost. This webinar describes various flooring options that are available, the advantages/disadvantages of each, maintenance requirements, and costs. Participants are eligible for one AIA LU credit.

Learning Objectives:

• Identify various types of floor finish options for concrete floors
• Recognize the pros and cons of floor coatings, coverings, and concrete polishing
• Examine the installation and maintenance costs for various floor types
