Exposing Technique: An aggregate in the concrete mix is exposed that gives beautiful finishing to the concrete slab. This is called exposed aggregate technique. This is done in three ways- sand blasting; chemical treatment; water pressure. This technique is used to create unique textured patterns.
However dont believe that this is your lone alternative in decorative concrete. You could also decide to shine your cement with grinders that contain grits and diamond pads. Most concrete floor will tolerate a grit of 800. At least one technique is to add Sodium Silicate or Lithium Silicate to the cement while it solidifies which will boost the capability to add gloss and grit with the polished off cement. Immediately following numerous stages with the grinders you should have a glassy and smooth finish to the cement. Dye coloring might be added throughout the polishing stage which will make for a very decorative cement finish.
Stamped concrete is a very heavy material with which to work, and it dries quickly, so the work must be done speedily as well. It is for these reasons, plus the savings that can be garnered over using expensive rock and brick materials, that many home and business owners turn to professional ready mix concrete contractors for adding this stylish look to their homes.
