Using concrete around your home
The Vorstman team of concreters are local and passionate about helping other Brisbane residents achieve their landscaping dreams using high quality and expertly applied concrete.
Concrete is a fantastic material for use in domestic and residential contexts. Versatile, affordable, and hardy, it’s the smart choice for both short term cost and long term value. From driveways to patios and pathways to alfrescos, concrete can be used to great effect for it all.
Benefits of using concrete
There are a ton of benefits to using concrete for your landscaping and around your home. If you want to find out whether concrete is the right material for you, feel free to contact us today.
Concrete is one hard substance. Durable and long lasting, it’s no wonder why concrete is commonly used for outdoor applications. Whether exposed to heavy foot and vehicle traffic or exposed to weather of all types, concrete is excellent value for money.
Looking to refresh your driveway or patio on a budget? Concrete is an excellent option for the money-conscious. Not only is the price of concrete substantially lower than other commonly used landscaping construction materials, but its long lasting nature makes it a fantastic investment.
Concrete is one versatile material. From the various colours and styles, to the ability to incorporate designs and patterns of all types, there’s a lot more to concrete than the classic monotone cement-grey aesthetic.
Types of concrete
Exposed aggregate concrete
Exposed aggregate concrete is a fantastic form of concreting material. Not only is it extremely durable and hard wearing for long term use, it also provides a fantastic surface with excellent grip both for feet and vehicles and during both dry and wet weather.
In recent years, exposed aggregate concrete has become more and more popular for homes across Brisbane. It’s easy to understand why: it’s endlessly customisable in shades of aggregate stone and concrete, so you’ll be able to personalise your choice of concrete to suit your preferences. Many customers opt to include a paver border with their exposed aggregate concrete.
Plain grey concrete
Plain grey concrete is the classic cement-style form of concrete that is commonly used for public footpaths, in schools and other common areas.
Plain grey concrete brings with it a wide variety of benefits. In addition to the expected durability and affordability of the concrete itself, the non-slip coat finishing makes it just as practical for everyday use.
The plain grey concrete aesthetic means it’s extraordinarily complementary with just about any other style or landscaping you have around your home or house.
Coloured concrete is a wonderful choice for its simple, single-shade aesthetic of classic concrete but with a bit of vibrant colouring that will breathe life into your landscape. While some forms of premium-looking landscaping material can cost an arm and a leg, coloured concrete offers all the benefits of looking and functioning amazingly, without hurting the back pocket.
There are many different colours and types of finishes to choose from, so you’re bound to find the perfect shade to suit your preferences and your home. Additionally, there are plenty of opportunities to further personalise your coloured concrete. From design stamping to paver-like stencilling, there’s almost no limit to what can be achieved with this versatile material.
CoverCrete is an innovative solution to your concrete-sized problem. If you’re facing having to demolish your worn, cracked and shabby looking concrete slab to replace it with something new, CoverCrete is the answer.
This decorative spray paving material can be easily applied to your landscape without having to demolish or reconstruct any slabbing. Refresh your patio, pool, alfresco or driveway without a hassle. Plus, with plenty of options in terms of colour, stencil and finish, you’ll simply love your CoverCrete.
Glow stone-incorporating concrete might not be for everyone, but it’s a sure-fire way to add an amazing aesthetic spark to your driveway or alfresco. The jaw-dropping visual of the glow-in-the-dark stones will bring vibrancy to your home and certainly be memorable for all sorts of visitors.
Whether you’re looking to replace a driveway that’s long past its due date or needing to find the right material for your initial construction, concrete is the way to go.
Concrete pathways are more than just affordable, durable options for your commercial or residential application. They’re also endlessly customisable in colour, style and design.
