If the existing floor surface needs to be solidified and densified, the contractor might apply penetrating hardeners to the concrete. This usually happens after first stage of the grinding process. The hardeners can be used on both existing or new floors and react chemically with the concrete to result in a hard crystalline structure. In addition, the hardeners offer extra protection from staining and water penetration and also prevent the concrete dusting.
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.
Decorative concrete made from ready mix concrete consists of sand, gravel, Portland cement, water and other additives. For stained concrete, caustic materials such as metallic salts, diluted hydrochloric acid, dyes and hydrated lime are used to produce gorgeous colors, but this also requires the use of these dangerous chemicals, meaning that it is always safest and best to allow professional contractors of concrete to handle these types of jobs around the home. They are trained in their appropriate use, and can achieve reliable results in the safest manner possible. Stamped concrete uses specialty molds and other techniques to create concrete surfaces that resemble flagstone, cobblestone, brick and even hardwood floors. Many patterns are available, so you have a broad range of choices when it comes to ready mix concrete flooring for your patio, walkways or driveway.
