Project completed at Paul Roos Gymnasium in Stellenbosch.

It is always heartwarming to please a customer and “fix” unsafe and unsightly concrete flooring.

Seen below are the photos before and after….

So right with white…

Seen below is our experiment with white concrete, freshly poured and waiting to dry. Once dry, we will grind and polish it to perfection.

Although white cement has been around for along time, it is only comparatively recently that designers have begun to use it to achieve the striking color effects that white concrete can so ably supply. The product’s major asset, aside form its striking architectural beauty, is its ability to remain white throughout its life. White concrete, obviously, is not a surface treatment that can deteriorate with age.

Experimentation can give big rewards since the color can serve either as a blank unobtrusive background, or be made to create an entirely new overall color effect. It is here that the use of pigments has its main value; a white cement is always preferable as the basis for a colored matrix, both because it is uniform in color to begin with (and therefore makes sample and remix matching easier), and because it allows a larger range of colors to be obtained.

Is dirt accumulation a bit of a problem…? NO WORRIES… the experts say proper clean-up inside and proper drainage outside should take care of normal dirt or contamination troubles.  Indoors, the recommended treatment for white concrete surfaces is simply a daily sweeping, damp mopping once a month, and scrubbing with a clean rotary machine every two or three months.

Concrete is Good for so Much More than Floors

Did you know…..?

Concrete is a very popular material for high-end counter-tops, sinks, fireplaces as well as floors

The fact that concrete can withstand water with ease has made it a popular choice for garden décor and outdoor furniture. But concrete can be used to beautify the inside of the home, too. Concrete’s incredible versatility and durability makes it the perfect building material for custom countertops, sinks, and fireplaces.

And concrete floors can be a surprisingly economical way to give any indoor living space a sleek, contemporary look that’s low-maintenance and that will take a lifetime of wear and tear.

and it looks GREAT.!

FYI….. Concrete and cement are not the same.

Concrete is a mixture of 60 – 65% aggregates like sand, gravel, and crushed stone, 15 – 20% water, and only 10 – 15% cement. When mixed, the cement and water harden, binding the aggregates into the solid mass we call concrete. So, there is no such thing as a cement sidewalk!
