Broom Finish Concrete
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly concrete finish option, choose broom finished concrete. This textured finish is primarily designed for exterior slabs and stairs. To create this finish on concrete, a broom is dragged across the surface where the concrete is spread. This gives a slightly abrasive surface and provides better traction, making the surface more slip resistant. You can opt for this finish for areas that are prone to frost or algae.
Smooth Finish Concrete
If you want to give your garage slab, basement floor or other exterior concrete elements on your property a clean, sleek look, opt for smooth finish concrete. In this process, a smooth or flat trowel is used. Since this finish is a smooth one, it can get a bit slippery in areas prone to ice or algae buildup (e.g. north side of building). Both smooth and broom finishes are your most economical choices.
Exposed Aggregate Concrete
Add elegance to your property with exposed aggregate concrete. In this process, first we trowel the concrete to a smooth finish. Once it is set, we pressure wash the surface to expose a beautiful levelled rock. Exposed aggregate concrete gives you a durable surface that is ideal for patios, walkways, and driveways. This type of finish is more expensive than the broom or smooth finish because it takes more time and the concrete used is more expensive.
For impressive and customized patterns for your patio or walkway, choose stamped concrete. In this process, a specialized mix of concrete that is blended with the chosen colour is troweled into a smooth finish. Latex stamps are then pressed on the wet concrete to give you the desired pattern. This finish is the most expensive one but it is also the most elegant and with regular maintenance, will give you years of enjoyment.
