PROFESSIONAL FINISHING OPTIONS FOR DECORATIVE CONCRETE
Smooth flat finish used for internal areas, revealing the decorative aggregates in either a full depth, medium or partial exposure. Polished concrete can be sealed, similar to timber floor boards or highly polished like stone or terrazzo.
Smooth flat finish used for internal areas where there is no exposure of aggregates; fines in the concrete may be exposed resulting in a lightly speckled appearance.
Recommended for external areas allowing the flow through of your polished concrete internally to honed concrete externally. Honed concrete is ground to a course cut diamond allowing for slip resistance requirements for external elements. Honed concrete brings to life driveways; patio area’s & pool surrounds.
Broom, Coving Trowel, Sponge and Inprints
Innovative and economical methods to create various textures, lines, patterns, shapes and other effects in the concrete surface.
Removing the top layer of concrete to create a rough, sandy look or expose stones in sections and patterns. Please note the Colori range does not include decorative aggregates.
Saw Cuts and Grooves
Tiled effects, lines and shapes created using a saw or hand tool.
Created by adding small amounts of stones, pebbles, rock salts etc into the surface by hand before the concrete sets. Rock salt dissolves when washed to create indents.
Taking 1-2mm off the surface after placing reveals less stone- great for footpaths or outdoor areas.
Taking 3-5mm off the surface after placing reveals more stone for a course surface - great for driveways or areas requiring more grip. Please note that over exposure may cause stones to separate from the surface.
