Seen below are the photos before and after….

What’s your style?

The charm of an overlay with aggregate on a polished concrete floor is it is available in an endless combination of colours and aggregates. No two installations are ever the same.

Selecting your combination:

  1. There are at least 20 colours to choose from for the base colour, and …
  2. Then there is the texture: either smooth concrete look or the chunky exposed aggregate look (as in  our previous post),
  3. Lastly the choice of colour and size for the aggregate….

Following up on our test sample for the white concrete… on June 11th 2018 we introduced the test sample.

What we did not mention was that it is not only white concrete… we added a secret component, and we think it turned out great.!

Concrete: a big feature in modern architecture.

Have you noticed how many new modern homes are built using concrete as the main component.? Complimenting the raw urban / industrial look perfectly is lots of beautiful wood, and also glass.

The benefits of home builders using concrete in this way are endless, but the main ones are:

  1. Wall thickness, size and shape can be done completely unique – bespoke to the needs or wants of you / your home;
  2. Walls or panels can be moulded off site, or on-site;
  3. Construction time can be greatly reduced;
  4. Insulation and durability are exceptional;
  5. Fireproof, waterproof, and totally Eco-Friendly;
  6. Totally BEAUTIFUL!!

Safety First

Reinforced concrete is the only building material that is highly resistant to both water and fire

Concrete is virtually fire-proof. It doesn’t burn, it can’t be set on fire, and it doesn’t release toxic fumes when it comes into contact with flames. And thanks to the slow rate of thermal conductivity of concrete – or heat transfer – concrete is an effective fire shield. That’s why buildings and other structures made from concrete are able to survive a fire when everything around goes up in flames.

Concrete is also naturally water resistant. The use of membranes and special concrete mixes can make it virtually waterproof, making concrete the ideal building material for underground structures like lower levels, basements, and parking structures, and bomb or storm shelters.

FYI….. Today, concrete is the world’s most-popular man-made building product. More than 7 billion cubic meters of concrete are produced each year. That’s one cubic meter for every person on the planet! And concrete is used by engineers and professional builders around the globe for an almost endless list of projects.
