Broom finish can be light broom or coarse depending on the bristles of the broom. The concrete is finished and then broomed. This is not a fancy finish and is the least expensive finish, but it provides a non-slip surface.
Rock Salt
After the concrete is finished salt crystals 1/8" to 3/8" in size are broadcast onto the wet concrete and hand tapped into the surface.. The surface is later washed, dissolving the salt and leaving small holes for an attractive textured surface.
Exposed Aggregate
Black and white 3/8" rock or pea gravel in the concrete can be exposed after finishing for an attractive finish.
Hand Seeded Exposed Aggregate
A variety of colored rocks in 1/4" or 3/8" can be broadcast by hand onto the wet finished concrete to achieve a very attractive finish in your choice of color.
After the concrete is finished, a mat is laid on the concrete and the pattern of the mat is pressed into the wet concrete. Concrete stamps are available in a variety of patterns. Some of the patterns are designed to make the concrete resemble slate, stone, brick, flagstone, or tile.
Hundreds of color choices are available for all of your concrete projects. We use all major brands of color from BrickForm, Scofield, and Davis Colors and many more. Color matching and cross referencing are available to help match all other concrete colors.
