When you want a durable flooring surface with an industrial look that offers unbeatable load- and wear- resistance, it has to be concrete, right?
Well no, not anymore.
Corestone is the lightweight concrete effect micro topping flooring surface that is taking retail, offices, showrooms and the residential market by storm.
What is Corestone flooring?
Corestone is an extremely strong flooring product with the natural effect and structure of concrete, available in many earthy shades, which can be applied easily applied to floors and walls. The biggest difference between Corestone and concrete is that this revolutionary micro-concrete topping can be applied incredibly quickly at a thickness of just 3mm, rather than having to accommodate a minimum of 75mm concrete screed. That makes it perfect for new builds with weight and loading in mind or for settings where headroom is likely to be an issue.
Perfect for a wide range of surfaces
Clearly, Corestone has distinct benefits over a concrete screed floor, and that includes the number of surfaces it can be used on. Thanks to the specialist synthetic mix of the topping, this quick-drying surface can be applied to ramps, risers, stair treads and more. Wherever it is used, Corestone creates a smooth, seamless surface with a thoroughly modern matt or satin finish.
What are the benefits?
Corestone flooring delivers the same industrial look as concrete without compromising on the longevity or ease of cleaning. However, there are none of the drawbacks you would typically associate with a concrete floor, such as staining or maintenance, and there are also more colour options, with a range of earthy shades available both in a single uni-colour and a twin blend duo version.
But there’s also much more to Corestone flooring than its looks. The properties of this flooring system also include:

Ease of Installation
