Q. Is concrete more expensive than traditional materials?
A. No, decorative concrete and installation costs are comparable to paving slabs, brick and stone sets.
Q. How long do these materials last?
Installed correctly and maintained properly concrete driveways, patios and floors have a very long life when compared to the traditional materials.
Q. How are all the wonderful colours achieved on floors and concrete worktops?
Sometimes colour pigment is added to the wet concrete before pouring. Once installed the concrete is then treated with dyes or acids or a combination of all three to achieve what you are looking for.
Q. How are concrete drives and patios made to look like real mineral stone?
As a wet product, we are able to apply printable templates to the surface when the concrete is wet. The concrete then takes on the pattern or texture you have selected.
Q. Can we use these products internally?
Yes, absolutely. Many of our floor coverings were historically chosen to cover poor quality floors as well as giving us something a little warmer to stand on. With the advent of underfloor heating you no longer need carpets, staining and colouring allow you to have wonderful unique patterns where carpets used to be.
Q. Where should concrete be avoided?
None – concrete is extremely versatile and hard wearing. It can be cast in any shape you desire, printed and stained. It’s cool in summer and with underfloor radiant heating, warm in the winter. It’s tough as old boots and requires little maintenance – what more could you ask for?
