Types of Concrete

We understand the consumer would like to see their concrete investment withstand the test of time. We will do our best to minimize the effects of cracking with control joints and structural reinforcements. Our job is not only to pour a visually appealing concrete surface but to take the extra steps needed to ensure the concrete will maintain this appearance throughout the duration of its life.

Broomed

  • Least expensive of all concrete options
  • Most often for exterior use due to rough finished surface. Broomed concrete is a great choice for high traffic areas where slipping is a concern
  • Least amount of upkeep and maintenance. Does not require initial sealer or continued resealing
  • Can be colored for added visual impact

Troweled

  • Similar in cost to Broomed
  • Smooth surface usually preferred for interior surfaces. Will need to take precautionary measures to avoid slipping
  • Easiest finish to keep clean by sweeping or hosing off
  • Can be colored for added visual impact

Exposed Aggregate

  • Mid range option with regards to price
  • More visual impact than broomed or troweled
  • Exterior Surface only. Does require an acid wash and annual or semi-annual sealing depending on location, climate exposure, and wear and tear
  • Can be poured in conjunction with stamped concrete borders or inset ribbons for more aesthetic beauty
  • Coloring of exposed aggregate is not available

Stamped Concrete

  • Most expensive option due to time and detail
  • Most visual impact with a variety of colors and stamp options to choose from
  • Can be used for interior or exterior surfaces
  • Requires initial sealing and annual to semi-annual resealing depending on location, climate exposure, and wear and tear
  • Stamped Concrete Patterns
