Five Ways An Auckland Concrete Layer Can Help You Improve Your Property

People often shy away from using concrete in their Auckland homes and gardens because it sounds dull and difficult, but used in the right way and put down by a professional concrete layer, the material can add value and flair both indoors and out.

1. Use concrete to refresh your driveway or patios

If your driveway is looking a bit drab or your patios lack pizazz, then laying some new concrete could be the answer. Specialist concrete companies can repair driveways by blasting them clean to remove mould and dirt and then re-sealing them, or you could choose to lay a completely new driveway using a decorative concrete or opting for an exposed aggregate finish.

Patios can be given the same treatment, and you could even opt for a stamped concrete to give the appearance of tiles or brickwork without the extra work that comes with those more decorative options.

2. Add a splash of colour

By adding a coloured powder to the original grey mix, you can create coloured concrete that could be used for a whole driveway or just for smaller areas around a garden to add interest. Coloured concrete can also be used inside for floors in kitchens or garages.

3. Build retaining walls

If parts of your garden are falling into disrepair or you would like to create a dramatically stepped effect as part of your landscaping plans, book a concrete layer to help build retaining walls to support the higher parts.

4. Add pool surrounds

Using a concrete paver to create a stunning surround for your pool can, not only add value to your house but can turn your pool from somewhere suitable for a quick swim to a great entertaining area. Coloured or stamped concrete would work well in this situation and could be matched to other areas of the outdoor space like patios or driveways.

5. Create new floors

Concrete doesn’t just have to be used outside. With a bit of clever thinking and the right finish concrete floors can also be a stylish addition to the inside of a house. Think coloured or highly polished when you are considering concrete for inside your house and be careful about where you decide to use it. A polished concrete kitchen floor might look good, but concrete what should be a cosy living room might not work so well.

If you are planning to use concrete in any area of your Auckland new build or renovations then employing an experienced concrete layer will ensure that your finished product looks good and stands the test of time.

Make sure the contractor visits you on site to get a good understanding of the project and space you have before putting together a quote. You may also wish to discuss how long the job will take and what access you will have to the property while the work is being done, particularly if you are concreting a large area like a driveway. And don’t forget to invest in a good water blaster or cleaning system to keep your concrete looking like new.

Navigating Wet Lawns - One Family's Solution

Hiring Jared, from Firth Landscapes, for a few days work was the ideal solution to put an end to one family's soggy lawn crossings this winter...... The Job Liz needed a garden path extended. One already existed, but it stopped short of the lawn, which meant that every time anyone in her family went to the washing line, or woodshed, they had a stretch of often wet and muddy lawn to cross. Liz had the pavers to match her existing path, she had made the plan and measured up exactly where the path would go, all she needed was to find a willing tradie. The Solution It was during this search that she came across builderscrack.co.nz. She immediately liked the way only tradies interested in doing the job were presented to the homeowner. For Liz, who works full time, it meant she could cut out the time-consuming step of “cold-calling” tradies to see if they were even interested in her job.
