There are many design finishes that are being used in the concrete industry today in the Greenville area including:
Stamped concrete: This is a popular finish that involves using a template to stamp a pattern or design into the surface of the concrete. Stamped concrete can mimic the look of natural stone, brick, or other materials, and is often used for patios, walkways, and driveways.
Polished concrete: This finish involves grinding and buffing the surface of the concrete to create a smooth, shiny finish. Polished concrete is often used in residential and commercial settings for its sleek and modern appearance.
Acid-stained concrete: This finish involves applying an acid-based solution to the surface of the concrete, which reacts with the minerals in the concrete to create a unique, marbled finish. Acid-stained concrete is often used to create a rustic or vintage look.
Colored concrete: This finish involves adding pigments or dyes to the concrete mix to create a range of different colors. Colored concrete is often used to create decorative accents or to match the color scheme of a particular project.
Exposed aggregate: This finish involves leaving the surface of the concrete rough and unfinished, exposing the aggregate (gravel or stones) in the mix. Exposed aggregate is often used to create a rustic or natural look.
Decorative overlays: This finish involves applying a thin layer of decorative material over the surface of the concrete. Decorative overlays can be made from a variety of materials including concrete, epoxy, and polyurethane, and can be used to create a wide range of designs and patterns.
