Why choose concrete for your project?
There are five solid reasons why people choose concrete for their projects, rather than any other material. These reasons are its durability, affordability and versatility, as well as a variety of available finishes and that it hardly requires any maintenance.
Concrete is a hard wearing material that’s highly durable and continues to look great for many years. It’s resistant to weathering, fire, humidity, extreme temperatures, abrasions and a range of chemicals. If you want a cost-effective solid surface that will outlive you – then concrete is the material of choice.
If you want an affordable and cost-effective solid surface, then concrete beats pavers, every time, particularly when considering the costs of installation. Concrete is easy to make and quick to install, even if you want one of the attractive finishes that are available. It’s simply the most popular and the best option for a variety of needs around the home. For concreting specialists on the Gold Coast – call Vorstman Constructions for a free on-site quote.
Since concrete is poured into a defined space, it can assume any shape or size. So if you want a tapered point, we can do that. If you want a circle, oval, square, triangle or any other shape, we can do that as well. Then there’s the size of your concrete slabs, because it can be as large or as small as you need. Concrete truly is a highly versatile material that suits most applications.
4. Variety of finishes
If you want to stay with the standard grey concrete, that’s fine, but there are other options available for your project. These include exposed aggregate, coloured concrete, CoverCrete and Glow Stones (more about these finishes below). So concrete doesn’t have to be boring and you don’t need to paint the concrete to make it more attractive. Simply opt for one of these popular finishes and you are good to go!
5. Low maintenance
Of all surfaces you could choose, concrete is the least likely to need any maintenance. That’s because once it’s cured correctly, it lasts for years! All you need to do is waterblast it to keep it clean (if it’s exposed to the elements) and you don’t even need to do that. Concrete doesn’t need to be cleaned, not unless you want to impress the neighbours!
What type of concrete finishes are available?
You’ve read about the five benefits of concreting on the Gold Coast, now here’s five different finishes that’ll suit any project around the home.
Standard grey concrete
Many people simply opt for using the standard grey concrete, particularly if it’s a slab for a garage, garden shed or even a carport. That’s because this type of finish is the most affordable and it’s just as durable, long lasting and versatile as concrete with a different finish. If you want to keep your grey concrete looking as good as new, an annual waterblast will do the trick.
Exposed aggregate options
Exposed aggregate is one of our more traditional concreting finishes that’s still popular on the Gold Coast today. That’s because there’s a wide range of coloured aggregate, so you can easily find an attractive option that matches your colour scheme, but if not, we can customise a colour for your project. Exposed aggregate is a hard wearing finish that’s often used on sloping sites because it offers a natural grip in wet weather. This makes it perfect for sloping driveways and any outdoor spaces, such as garden paths or patios.
If you have an old concrete surface that’s in need of some tender loving care, then CoverCrete is the ideal option. That’s because instead of jack-hammering up the old concrete and replacing it with new, CoverCrete just slides on top and gives you a fresh new surface. There are endless colour options, including stencilling, so when your surface needs a serious makeover, CoverCrete is the best option.
Not sure about the standard grey concrete? Well what colour do you want? We can mix any colour you require for your project, whether that’s dark grey (very popular at the moment), Heritage cream or any other custom colour. We can match the colour of your concrete to your garage doors, garden paths or patio, even your window frames or doors.
Whatever your colour scheme, we can recreate it using hard wearing and affordable coloured concrete. However, if a plain design isn’t right for your project, then we also offer stamping or stencilling – your options are endless!
Magical glow stones
If you want to add a touch of whimsy to your concrete surfaces, then these magical glow stones are the bee’s knees! We can lay them in any pattern, straight on top of newly poured concrete to give a unique ambiance to your garden. These stones actually glow in the dark, so they are perfect for garden paths or around the pool, in fact any area that needs additional lighting at night.
