Coloured, exposed and concrete finished for grinding are hot new trends for patios, concrete floors, stairs, entranceways, pool decks and more. From expansive new homes with elaborate concrete driveways to budgeted one-room remodels showcasing a stunning concrete floor, the attraction is continuing to grow when it comes to using concrete for decorating. Concrete is no longer plain, grey and boring, it is now thought of as a beautiful decorative element.

Different Types of Concrete Finishes :


Ordinary Concrete is standard concrete with no oxide added. It is a durable surface that will add value to any property and last for many years to come. Can be broom finished or trowel finished.

Coloured Concrete is standard concrete with oxide added. There are many different oxides that can be used to suit any area or colour scheme. Coloured concrete can be broom finished or trowel finished. You can enhance your coloured concrete by adding decorative cuts, grouting and sealing the area.

Exposed Concrete is a specialised finish where the 20mm crushed aggregate is substituted with pebbles or fine stones and sometimes shell. Once the concrete is on the ground and tidy, a concrete retarder is sprayed over the surface and the concrete is left for a few hours to cure. The concrete contractor will then return and wash the surface off the concrete to expose the particular stones/pebbles which makes up the concrete mix. The concrete is then left for a few days to cure. The contractor will then return and acid wash (clean) the cement residue off the surface of the exposed concrete leaving a more even colour. This type of concrete can be sealed for a wet look finish if desired.

Concrete Finished for Grinding is now becoming more and more popular. Whether it be part of the design of the interior of your new home or your outdoor patio area. The concrete can be coloured or ordinary and is trowel finished and left to cure. Once cured, a specialist concrete grinder will come in and grind the surface off the concrete, exposing the shapes of the stones below, then polish it to give it a smooth glossy finish.
