Finishes

Select a Finish

A finish is one of many effects that can be added to your concrete after it has set. They can enhance the look and function of your application and are a very popular choice.

After concrete has been placed and compacted, finishing of the surface is undertaken. Initially the surface needs to be levelled and any holes in the concrete need to be filled. The concrete is then left until all of the bleedwater has evaporated.

The final stage of finishing generally involves trowelling the surface and applying one of a large variety of treatments to create different textures, patterns and colours.

There are a number of techniques for producing exposed-aggregate finishes including water washing, abrasive blasting, acid etching and honing.
