Aggregate concrete finishing

Aggregate Finishes

Exposed aggregate finishes use mineral materials such as sand or small stones in concrete mixtures to provide remarkable effects on concrete walkways, decks, and plaza surfaces.  A wide range of decorative aggregate is available, providing an almost unlimited choice of texture and colour.  Whether you choose to see or mix aggregate into the concrete or use a topping slab to create the exposed aggregate finish, the results are stunning.

Permeable paving systems

Porous/Permeable Concrete

Permeable paving systems can be used to allow movement of stormwater through the hard surface, reducing runoff, trapping suspended solids and filtering pollutants from the water.  No fines permeable concrete allows a more sustainable alternative to standard concrete surfaces

Coloured Concrete Systems

Contrax can apply a wide range of architectural concrete pigments to concrete surfaces, either integrally mixed or hand-applied with brushes, trowels and sprays.

Stamped Concrete

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete offers a practical, durable finish for floors, plazas and pavements in high-traffic commercial and urban settings.  It is easy to maintain, attractive and hard-wearing enough to withstand heavy foot and vehicle use.  Stamped concrete is highly adaptable and can be given slip-proof textures and finishes to avoid injuries to customers and pedestrians.

Broom and trowelled concrete

Broom & Trowel Finishes

Broom and trowel finishes provide a range of practical and decorative effects.  Broom finishes create an attractive, skid-resistant surface for paths and walkways.  Textured trowel finishes can be used to create a decorative pattern in the concrete through the application of different trowels and pressures.
