Concrete layers in Christchurch

If you are using concrete as a focal point in your Christchurch house or garden rather than just as the slab on which your house is built, then there is no need to stick to simple grey concrete.

Professional concrete layers can create a range of finishes depending on the look and feel of your property. If you are replacing concrete or laying new concrete, consider these ideas as part of your landscaping or interior design

Coloured concrete

Concrete can be coloured by adding a powdered colour mix to the concrete, which then produces a subtly coloured finish in different shades or grey or brown or even colours like green or red. This finish can add interest to outdoor areas like patios or could even be used for indoor floors in kitchens to match other decor.

Stamped or patterned concrete

If you would like something a little different, concrete layers can create patterned concrete by using stamps that can replicate the look of slate tiles or brick paving while combing it with the modern strength and ease of poured concrete.

Exposed aggregate concrete

Many people opt for exposed aggregate concrete as an alternative to a plain concrete slab. Exposed aggregate finishes are created by taking off the top layer of concrete to expose the stones underneath. This can be further enhanced with the use of decorative stones, glass or shells for a more individual finish.

Polished concrete

Polished concrete is becoming a popular option inside houses as people opt for modern interior design techniques. Most homes are built on concrete slabs so it does not take much extra work to leave some of that slab uncovered to create a polished concrete floor rather than a carpeted or tiled area. To achieve the right finish, the concrete is ground and then either simply sealed or sealed and polished to a shine.

If you like the idea of polished concrete but don’t want a whole floor, think about using it in other areas like kitchen worktops or bathroom units.

Don't be put off by the idea of patterned or coloured concrete laying being complicated. By employing a professional concrete layer, you can take the hassle out of any job and get the results you want. It can pay to look for a contractor who specialises in these areas especially for the technical work of polished or stamped concrete so you are assured of getting high-quality finishes.

If you are worried about the cost, ask the firm to quote for both a simple plain concrete finish and the more decorative look so you can compare the two and make and informed decision. You might also like to find out whether a different finish will take longer and what guarantees the company offers with regards to the completed work.

With the help of a professional concrete layer, there is no need for your Christchurch home to look dull and boring any more. Bring out the best in your exterior with fancy new concrete and give your property a new lease of life.
