Our Concrete Services/Finishes
The most popular type of decorative concrete is exposed aggregate (particularly for driveways).
While many types of concrete are mixed with aggregates to add to the durability of the mixture, the distinct beauty seen in exposed aggregate surfaces comes from the specific manner of laying the concrete. We use a high end product to remove the top layer of concrete to reveal the mixed-in aggregate.
Honed aggregate is technically a type of exposed aggregate, with some distinctive differences.
Honed aggregate is ground down, giving the material a much smoother finish than exposed aggregate. This smooth finish tends to add a modern flair to the areas where it is used (such as pools and alfrescos), and makes your surfaces “ouch-less”. This is a great feature if you have children running around your home.
There are a few differences between exposed polished aggregate and honed aggregate.
The most noticeable difference is in the finishes. The finish of honed aggregate is a smooth satin finish, while the finish of the polished aggregate has a glossy and lustrous look. Polished aggregate receives up to six courses of buffing, as opposed to the lighter smoothing that creates the honed aggregate.
When someone visits your home or business, one of the first things that they notice is your driveway.
A dull or outdated looking entrance can ruin the façade of the most elegant property. Cracks, weeds, and broken pieces of the driveway can have a substantial impact on the overall look of your home or business.
Having a beautiful pool is the dream of many home owners, and at Decorative Concrete WA, we can make your pool a standout feature.
Many people with pools do not realise how much of a difference a solid, quality pool deck, edging, or surround will make to the pool’s look and level of maintenance.
Liquid limestone can be used indoors and outdoors and has a number of advantages.
It is a special mix of crushed limestone and neutral coloured cement. Together, they create a pourable compound (as opposed to regular limestone pavers) that is highly durable, customisable, and beautiful.
Prior to the creation of the overlay system, if a customer wanted the look of finely polished concrete, yet had a different type of original flooring, a 10-20mm concrete screed was installed and then polished.
However, our overlay is a cost-effective thin veneer that sets fast, looks fantastic and doesn’t obstruct doors.
If you want a fresh and unique look, we have an exciting new product to offer you: Glowcrete.
This innovative style of decorative concrete is a true show stopper because it actually glows in the dark. This makes it perfect for driveways, garden beds and around the pool!
Polished concrete differs from the various aggregate surfaces in that it is a poured concrete slab with no decorative materials.
It is the treatment after the concrete has set that separates a gleaming polished floor from a dull and lifeless concrete surface.
