Types of Concrete Finishes that We Can Do
Unknown to many, concrete finishing is becoming an art by itself. Although a lot of concrete engineers can perform this job, not a lot knows the different types of concrete finishes that we can do to make your concrete even more functional and visually appealing.
Stamped Concrete Finish
Patterns are used in order to create the desired design on a freshly leveled concrete. This method allows concrete technicians to produce or copy almost anything from slates or flagstones, tiles, or bricks, even mimic wood or lumber. This technique is usually done on sidewalks and driveways, patios, and pool decks.
Our concrete crews use coarse rock salt crystal in order to achieve the desired look. A roller is used to run over the coarse salt which was placed over the concrete surface, gently stamping it and then a stream of water is used to wash off the salt leaving decorative finishes which are usually rough and anti-skid surface, although plain and colored concrete can also be done using this method.
This pattern is created by smearing the concrete’s surface with a uniform circular pattern, producing a visually appealing surface with an almost identical pattern. This is used mainly in outdoor patios, walkways as this provide traction and, at the same time, aesthetic value.
Specialized machines and tools usually help engineers achieve this look along with penetrant chemicals that provide various textures. The effect on the concrete is really amazing using this method. However, proper care and caution must be taken in order to avoid any accidents.
To come up with this style, pigments or post-cure staining agents are used. This finish is best suited for outdoor scenes in order to compliment the landscape or environment.
This is a textured finished created by using a broom, dragged across the surface of fresh concrete. Small ridges are produced as the broom glides across the surface of a freshly laid concrete. The ridges seen on the surface provide traction and can make your concrete slip-resistant.
This is the most popular and most common style of finishing concrete. Concrete is basically laid in the formwork and then leveled using a trowel. The trowel is run over the concrete to smoothen the surface.
