The floor in this hardware store in coastal Oregon is not only beautiful, but it is also functional. A total of just under 15,000 sq.ft. of acid stain and RetroPlated concrete are under the roof at Astoria Builders Supply. The building, designed by architect Scott Stemper of Seattle, was completed in 2002, and incorporates a radiant heating system in the slab, along with large windows for natural lighting. The owner chose RetroPlate with Acid Stain for its long term wear ability, along with on-going maintenance ease and savings. In this installation, the floor receives both foot and forklift traffic on a daily basis, and has performed exactly as the architect and owner expected.
