Poured Concrete: this type of concrete is poured onto the ground, which leaves a smooth surface. This is perfect for patios and slabs that need to be sealed.
Abrasive Stamped Concrete: made from crushed rock on top of wet concrete, it gives an up-close texture with depth. Abrasive stamped concrete can also be used as decorative flooring in office buildings or residential homes.
Textured Poured Concrete: textured surfaces are created by pouring different types of aggregates into moistened mortar mix before being spread out onto subgrade soil over compacted earth fill material.
Stamped Heavy Duty Belts: The low cost option available provides a more sturdy look when compared to other methods due to the polyurethane coating.
Other types include:
Corduroy Concrete: this type of concrete is a textured finish that has been stamped with an up and down patterned design.
Solid Slabs: these types of slabs usually come in rectangular shape, giving it a more modern look.
