A composite of cement, sand, pebbles and water, concrete is the oldest manmade building material. The Romans used it as early as 509 B.C. They built extensively and impressively during the Roman Republic era. The ruins that people flock to see such as the Pantheon, the Coliseum and Pompeii were all built of, and stand in testament to the durability of, concrete.
Today, concrete is the most widely used building material in the world. Because of its hydraulic nature, concrete can be used as underwater support for bridges, docks and piers. Its compressive strength makes it ideal for roads and skyscrapers. And its fluid versatility lends itself to architectural grace in bridge arches and plaza fountains.
Concrete is an ideal product for residential and commercial projects because you can shape it to suit your own personal needs. We will help you to design a home or business property renovation project that you will be satisfied with for many years to come.
Stamped concrete is concrete that resembles brick, slate, flagstone, stone, and various other styles and textures. Stamped concrete is commonly used for patios, sidewalks, driveways and pool decks.
The ability of stamped concrete to resemble other building materials makes stamped concrete a less expensive alternative to using those other authentic materials such as stone, slate or brick.
Stamped concrete is longer lasting than paved stone, still resembles the look and is available in a wide variety of colours.
Exposed aggregate concrete is a decorative style of concrete suitable for use as a driveway, sidewalk, patio or pool deck.
The appeal is in the finish, which exposes the smooth textured small stones and pebbles that are part of the concrete. This is in contrast to a smooth concrete finish.
Exposed aggregate provides some visual interest by creating random patterns, and a variety of colours.
