Affordable and Quality Coloured Concrete in Essendon

Concrete has always been the most practical choice in the construction of homes and buildings. Simply because it’s affordable, durable, easy to install, long-lasting and easy to maintain. However, concrete is a bit dull, and some people find it less appealing than other decorative building materials such as pavers. Fortunately, there are several ways to make concrete more appealing.

Coloured Concrete Varieties

There are several concrete colouring methods, and each of these produce different looks. Choosing the best method that will work for you will depend on your purpose and preference. For your convenience, we listed general information about each method to help you choose the best option for you.

Integral Pigments
This is a fade-resistant colour that is added to the concrete mixture.
 
Stains
Offers permanent and translucent colour. It has good UV stability and wear – which makes it a good option for exterior surfaces as well. Stains have three kinds: penetrating, acid stains and film-forming. 
 
Dry-Shake Colour Hardeners
It is a powder that is made of mineral aggregates and is being added to fresh concrete. It colours the top layer only. Furthermore, it gives off a richer and more vibrant hue.. 
 
Concrete Dyes
Concrete dyes are the most commonly used method. It is used for complicated patterns and the boldest colours. It is a good choice for interior surfaces because it can fade with direct sunlight. This is a good option for existing slabs of concrete because it dries off quickly. 

FAQs

Will coloured concrete fade over time?

The pigment will not fade over time, however, some experts will recommend adding a sealant to prevent stains or water damage. Also, if the colour concrete is poorly mixed, it can slowly erode. That’s why it is important to hire experienced professionals to avoid added costs for repairs or replacements.

How do I maintain coloured concrete?

Reseal the concrete at least every 2 years and make sure to keep the concrete clean.

Which sealer or coating should I use?

It is best to contact us for us to help you in choosing the correct sealer. It depends on the purpose of the coloured cement.

When can I use my newly coloured concrete driveway?

You have to wait between 5-7 days. However, take note that it takes at least 28 days for concrete to cure. The final colour will also be established by then.
