Concreter in Sydney & Surrounds

Concreting in the Sydney region is a very common trade and almost every house in Sydney requires or has required some form of concrete, be it a driveway, footpath, pool decking or side access.

Concreting is extremely popular in the local area because concrete finishes are easy to maintain and won’t cost an arm and a leg when it comes to replacements. Concrete Driveways are incredibly durable and have that “wow factor” when you drive up to your home in comparison to other driveway surfaces.

When deciding which type of concrete finish you should choose for your Sydney property many factors come into play such as price, aesthetics, colour variety & application method.

Custom exposed aggregate or stencilled Concrete is applied using a longboard method which gives a beautiful professional finish with different varieties of custom finishes. These include herringbone patterns, brick style lines, stripes and more.

Custom exposed aggregate finishes are usually used on driveways but can also be used in pools, patios and walkways. With the many different textures available you will be sure to find something that suits your taste, style and budget.
