What is a concrete finish, and what are the benefits of using one on your building project?
Concrete finish refers to the type of surface that is applied to the concrete. It can range from a smooth, polished finish to one with an aggregate exposed or even stamped into the surface. Each finish offers different benefits and drawbacks depending on what look you’re trying to achieve.
Concrete finishes offer different benefits to homeowners and businesses, such as having a very durable surface, adding an aesthetically pleasing look to any building, and being easy to maintain.
How can you choose the right concrete finish for your specific needs and budget constraints?
The following factors should determine your choice of concrete finish;
• The type of building it’s going to be used for
• Your budget constraints
• The look you want to achieve
• The durability of the finish
• Ease of maintenance
At Total, we specialise in all types of concrete finishes for residential and commercial properties. Our team are knowledgeable and experienced with a range of decorative concrete finishes.
The process of installing a concrete finish in your home or office space
Installing concrete finishes will depend on the type of finish required. Generally, the process involves the following factors
• Preparation of the substrate (whether it be existing concrete, asphalt or a new slab)
• Mixing and application of the required cementitious product
• Hand troweling to create a smooth finish
• Grinding and sealing the surface for protection from stains and UV damage.
The mixture ratio will depend on the type of finish being applied and will be discussed with the customer to ensure a quality product.
How do you care for and maintain a concrete finish to look
Care and maintenance are integral parts of having a great-looking concrete finish. Regular cleaning and sealing will help keep the concrete looking new for years to come. Cleaning can be done with a pressure washer or other cleaning solution, followed by rinsing thoroughly. Sealing your concrete should also be done approximately once every two years to help protect it from weather and wear its best for many years.
What are some of the most popular types of concrete finishes available?
We have different concrete finishes to choose from, each with its ideal applications.
Stamped concrete finish: This is ideal for a look that’s similar to brick or stone, but it can also be used for textured and coloured designs.
Exposed aggregate: The exposed stones in the concrete offer a unique and decorative look. This is perfect for driveways and other areas with heavy use, as the aggregate provides extra strength and durability.
Polished concrete: If you want a smooth and shiny finish, polished concrete is the way to go. This can be used for anything from residential driveways to commercial spaces.
Salt and pepper finish: This finish creates a rough texture that gives your flooring more traction and grip. It’s perfect for outdoor patios or other areas where extra traction is needed.
