Plain concrete is the most common concrete type. It is affordable and practical, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring!
Plain concrete can look stylish and can create a modern or traditional look to suit your project.
The look and feel of plain concrete can be created by which finish is used.
Cove Finish – a circular shape is created using a hand trowel. This is a great option for driveways and paths as the pattern creates some grip on the surface.
Broom Finish – Horizontal lines are created with a broom. A great option for driveways and paths as the broom creates a grip on the surface.
Hand Trowel Finish – a relatively smooth finish is created with a hand trowel. Looks great on a flat driveway with patterned cuts.
Smooth Trowel Finish – this finish is created by machine or by hand if the surface is required to be smooth. Perfect for shed slabs. This is used for patios, pool surrounds or any surface that will be tiled.
Any finish can be complimented by using a creative border, highlighted edges, dummy joints or with pattern cuts.
