trowel or broom Finish
The most common concrete finishes are trowel or broom finishes. Both are performed whilst the concrete is placed, before it cures. Hand troweling gives a a simple, natural. Brooming creates texture (more or less, totally dependent on the tool used) and imparts some slip resistance for exterior installations. A beautiful, gentle pattern can be completed with the aid of brooming different sections of the slab in different directions.
Stamped Concrete Calgary
Imprinting or “stamping” fresh (uncured) concrete gives the floor more texture and decoration. Imprinting is popular for mirroring the appearance of bricks, tiles or stones, but it also may be used to create extra whimsical designs – dinosaur footprints or a sandy beach, for example. Our specality is decorative concrete and we are excited to work with you on your next project.
Imprinting complements the beauty of pool decks, patios and parks. If you’re in need of inspiration we have you covered here with our article on the top stamped concrete patterns in Calgary.
Concrete Grinding and Polishing
Simply put, a chemical densifier is applied and then mechanically ground with tools steadily using ffiner grits. Ground and polished concrete, whether or not new or old, can be colored with stains or dyes. Polishing increases the lifespan and look of your concrete and often time saves on costs associated with extra materials and maintenance.
