Cement is not just for building houses, it is also a finishing option. Yes, that’s right! We are talking about the cementitious coating.
This type of coating has been very successful these days, and there are good reasons for that.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of cementitious coating?
Durability and resistance
Undoubtedly, one of the greatest advantages of cementitious coating is the high durability and strength of the material.
Cement, the main raw material for this type of coating, can withstand the constant traffic of people and even vehicles very well, being an option even for garages.
This type of coating also has excellent weather resistance, withstanding sun, rain and wind.
For those who want to give a touch of modernity and sophistication to the environment, you can also count on the cement coating.
Nowadays this type of coating is preferred to create modern spaces that go far beyond the industrial style. Elegant living rooms and cosy bedrooms, for example, can be easily designed with cement floors. The trick is to combine it with other, particularly noble textures such as wood.
Low heat retention
Another major benefit of cementitious coating is its low heat retention, meaning it does not heat up (or heats up very little compared to other types of coating).
That is why the cement coating is very suitable for use in outdoor areas such as balconies, backyards, gourmet areas, and, of course by the pool.
It is also worth mentioning that the cement coating is also a bit rough, which makes it a great ally in damp areas like the swimming pool, so you can prevent people from slipping and getting injured.
