Stamped/Stencil: As opposed to pave cut finishes where we cut patterns into cured concrete by hand cut, we emboss patterns into the concrete before it dries. This method of finishing presents the homeowner with a wide range of possible looks as we offer many patterns to choose from. Many of the patterns of this decorative concrete Sunshine Coast homeowners love mimic natural stone, cobblestone or brick.
Homeowners residing in Castaways Beach, Diddillibah, Coolum Beach and other Sunshine Coast suburbs prefer stamped finishes as they not only look good, but are more affordable to install than the natural elements themselves. They are also durable and easy to maintain.
Polished: A polished concrete finish offers a number of possibilities to property owners. You can use it on outdoor surfaces like patios and verandahs as well as on your home’s interior floors.
Besides the natural visual appeal of a reflective surface, polished concrete surfaces are low maintenance. You will find it much easier to keep clean than a textured surface. This is why many property owners prefer us to install polished concrete floors in their garages and other areas of the house that are prone to stains.
This attribute also makes polished concrete ideal for use in industrial settings where there is high traffic and chemicals, oil or other substances often find their way to the floor.
Pave Cut: Most concrete contractors in Sunshine Coast will tell you that saw cut finishes are quite popular with property owners here because it replicates the beauty of brick pavers but does away with the maintenance challenges they present. We create a pave cut finish by using a diamond saw to cut square or diamond patterns into the concrete after it has cured.
You won’t be limited to a basic grey concrete surface with decorative patterns. We can polish the pave cut concrete surface or create it with coloured concrete to make the end product stand out. As with any of our concrete finishes, we ensure pave cut concrete surfaces are well sealed to make them last long.
Plain: If you would like to incorporate the functionality and durability of concrete into your porch or driveway without the high cost of the more elaborate finishes, we can install a plain finish. A plain concrete finish is equally ideal for house slabs as they provide the rigidity and weight resistance that ensure they serve their purpose for many years. A concrete slab for a garden shed will usually have a plain concrete finish.
Our expertise as concrete contractors Sunshine Coast homeowners trust will make even a no-frills plain concrete finish appealing to the eye. We can spruce it up with a slightly textured or stippled effect to add a dash of contemporary elegance.
Coloured: Coloured concrete can breathe life into a part of your house that was previously of little interest to inhabitants and guests. We achieve colouring of your concrete finish using a variety of methods.
Oxide concrete pigment powder of the desired colour can be mixed into concrete if you would like the colour to be fully integrated into the surface. If you would like only certain areas to be coloured, we can apply chemical acid stains.
If we’re installing an exposed aggregate finish, we can seed elements like coloured glass. Gone are the days you had to settle for a drab grey concrete finish.
